    Do I need permission from Dish to add a 3rd hopper?
    I have two right now that I own, no joeys, and I would like to add a third hopper

    Thanks

    I think you should call them and ask.
    I know people whom have 3 hoppers.
    But you still have to Call Dish.

    You do have to contact a phone representative so they we can approve the 3rd receiver for the account and the equipment would have to be purchased.

    On top of that... you will also need a more complicated setup than you have now... which means another node and a DPP34 or DPP44 switch to cobble everything together... plus Dish has to activate the receiver so you'll be talking to them for that at a minimum.

    Be vigilant: there is no such beastie as a DPP34. I think you meant a DPP33.

    Here's a link to a post in a nearly identical thread (shame on the TS) that has a diagram:

    Sorry... I was thinking about the DP34 for some reason there.
