Thanks for the reply Stewart - But can I use a standard Sling 350 with the Hopper and then use the Slingplayer Software? Is that all I need?  It doesn't somehow "detect" that its connected to a hopper and make me use Dish Anywhere?

I can't put my finger on anyone specifically using a Sling 350 with a Hopper but I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work.  The only "catch" I can think of off the top of my head is that I don't believe the Sling 350 has an HDMI input... if I'm right, then that means you would have to use the Hopper's component output... but that might be a "bonus" if you have that Hopper using HDMI to an HDTV already anyway.

 

There may be some functionality differences but I can't think of anything that you wouldn't be able to do using a Sling 350 instead of the Sling adapter.

 

The Hopper w/ Sling built-in is where there is a definite feature advantage since only that model allows the transfer of recordings to your iPhone/iPad mobile device...  neither the sling adapter or the standalone slingbox would give you that feature on the original Hopper.

 

But for your purposes if you mainly just want the sling features AND want to be able to use Slingplayer software... you should be good to go.

 

Oh, the other thing...  Dish Anywhere is free for everyone... but the iPhone/iPad Slingplayer app costs money last I checked...  I do not know if Dish Anywhere will work with a slingbox, but it might.  Maybe someone with a slingbox can chime in on that point.

How is Vulkano Flow set up with a Dish Anywhere?

It is not. DISH Anywhere supports only Slingloaded devices (ViP922, HWS and Sling Adapter).

As conventional Slingboxen used to be supported and aren't any longer, it seems unlikely that Monsoon support will ever be added.

The Vulkano Flow works, but the iPad app is badly in need of an update.

While the Vulkano Flow works with DISH receivers, I'm pretty sure that it does NOT work with DISH Anywhere.
