Sorry I havent posted the results.  So the Dish tech came out and basically reset all the boxes and rediscovered the joeys with the hopper w/sling and it didnt fix the problem.  So the tech replaced the hopper w/sling and everything has been working fine for the past several weeks.  But all of a sudden this week, when I turn off the main TV, and turn the tv back on I get a black screen, I am able to open the menu but I have to reset the box.  It happens at the same time in the evening, around 8PM every night. The hopper is not plugged into a surge protector.  Was there a new software update lately?  I can find any info and wondering if that is the problem?
