Here is a minor issue I have encountered since my hoppers were installed with this release a couple of days ago:
Using the Dish "Explorer" app on an Apple iPad - the initial attempt to pair with the hopper fails after entering the 6-digit code. It fails during the attempt to connect to the hopper. The pairing worked successfully - as evidenced by the "paired devices" display on the hopper - but the app cannot connect to the hopper.
Using the Dish "Transfers" app on an Apple iPad successfully pairs and connects to the hopper.
All subsequent attempts to connect with the Explorer app fail.
All subsequent attempts to connect with the Transfers app work.
And now for the twist...
If you first connect the Transfers app, and then connect the Explorer app, BOTH will connect successfully. It is as though the Transfers app establishes something in the router or the iPad (or the hopper) that then makes the Explorer app able to connect. If the Transfers app is not connected, the Explorer app cannot connect.
I am able to use the Explorer app, but only if I first connect the Transfers app.
This behavior is repeatable ad infinitum on both hoppers, and using both my and my wife's iPads.
For reference purposes, my wireless router is a DIR-825, and one of its wired LAN ports feeds a DGS-2208 switch to which the first hopper is wired. There is a second switch cascaded off the first, and the second hopper is wired to that switch. I don't think the switches are relevant, but I wanted to be sure to provide the complete topology.
