I am thinking about replacing my VIP 622/722 DVRs with hopper 3 and I have a few questions about it. The folks on the dish customer service are not very useful and can't seem to answer these (or at least their answers don't inspire confidence). 1. Do I have to connect to the internet? I don't plan on using the internet with my dish and don't want to have to connect it. 2. What type of video compression is used in the signal from the sattelite to the hopper 3? Is it MPEG 2/4 like the other dish receivers use or is it something else? What sattelites do I need in the southeast (currently use 119 and 127), are the same sattelites used by hopper or I will I need to reposition my antenna. 3. How does it physically connect to all the TVs throughout the house. Is this on cable or by RF or what? 4. Does hopper 3 have an over the air tuner? I currently use my 722 to get broadcast over the air channels as one of my TVs (a projector actually) does not have a tuner of its own. I hae about 20 separate OTA channels in my area, dish only carries the major networks on DBS. Thanks for any help.
