Back to topic now...
... there definitely is a bug or a glitch or something wrong.
Above statement pretty much describes my last week with Dish. Whoever it is that writes the code, updates, ect, for these Dish devices really leaves a lot to be desired. Get another job your qualified for! And Dish, if you really want to compete in the cable tv/satellite TV industry get your act together and provide us with a decent user experience!
I now own a 2T WD essentials EHD that I neither want, nor need at $125USD (although I really like WD). I gotta say that even trying to move recorded content from hopper1 over to the ehd was a frustrating adventure wrought with error messages, do overs, and out of date how to's on Dish's website. How do normal people with no tech background navigate through this?
I understand that to some extent the consumer is going to have to jump through hoops to relax and enjoy the technology that we all enjoy on a daily basis, but for Christ sake try to keep it to a minimum and design your crap so we don't get run through a ringer when your lack of quality control decides to burp.
I vote with my checkbook, and don't hesitate to tell everyone I know what works and what doesn't. So there! Lol
