    Makes sense, since Ethernet/WiFi are not officially supported on the Joey. I'm just glad 99% of the functionality is there and that it works as well as MoCA.

    I have 2 Hoppers and 3 Joeys. Only one Hopper is connected via Ethernet to my router and the rest of the devices can all access each other and on-demand content. I have bridging enabled on the second Hopper. When the installer originally setup the equipment, he insisted that both Hoppers needed to be Internet connected and put a wireless USB dongle on the second Hopper. I found that this configuration caused way too many problems and after searching a few threads on this forum, ended up disconnecting the WiFi on the 2nd Hopper and just use the bridging function.

    Just providing an update to my original post...this is now working! Not sure when it started, but checked today and my Ethernet Joey can now see recordings from both Hoppers. Thanks Dish!

    Yup they fixed that about a month or so ago. They probably found the bug when writing the software for the Wireless Joey.

    This would make sense, because of the DISH Wireless Access Point will be able to talk to all Hoppers and Joeys, on a private network. While, at the same time, be able to obtain, over DHCP, IP addresses from one's home network. Effectively, the AP, as also a bridge.

    This feature now works on the regular Joeys as well.
