Maybe that's it. I have sling but it's the original Hopper. Still
Seems like it would be on my app. My app is updated.

Dish Anywhere has been updated a few times since I last tried the mobile transfer on my android tablet.  It looks like it finally works, though it is not perfect.


This time when I started transferring the Simpsons episode I prepared so many months ago I actually saw progress in the transfer.  I saw % transferring increasing.  Unfortunately, when my android paused while I was doing something else it stopped the transfer and the second time it did this it was unable to continue.  I tried again and kept it "live" the whole time and it succeeded in transferring the whole episode. I tried watching it and it looks like it works.  


The inability to transfer when it is in background or the fact that transferring doesn't stop the android from trying to save battery life is a problem, but at least it works now.

Yeah, that is it :)  I had the same symptoms, then I upgraded to the new Hopper with built-in sling and the app automatically showed the transfer option.  The app only shows the transfer option when you have the new Hopper.
