    I recently switched from DirecTV to Dish. Where the H3 is my WIFI signal is a bit weak. So I want to move it closer. I know with DTV in some cases the reciever powers the dish and only takes power from one spot. Is that the same with Dish or can I just swap boxes?

    Can you describe your system and how you have your cables run? It may be as simple as swapping a coax at the note while swapping your Hopper 3 for a Joey but without knowing the topology we can only guess.

    The Hopper 3 would be the only satellite receiver in the system with Joeys being clients that use the tuners and storage on the Hopper 3. So yes, it can get complicated.

    As long as the cable from the new position of the Hopper 3 is connected to the same port on the node as the cable from the old position, it should work.

    Not sure on the terminology, but is the node the cable splitter that comes off the dish? This guy:

    Swapped the top left and bottom right coaxes around and boom everything works. That was easy. :p

    The bent on that cable is terrible.
