    I have two questions.

    1. How do I activate Commercial Skip on my Hoppers?

    2. How do I access the internet on more than one Hopper?
    I have discovered that if more than one receiver is connected via ethernet, the network crashes and Joeys cannot find Hoppers.

    I believe the commercial skip only works on PTAT.

    1. the autohop feature only works on things recorded as part of the primetime anytime, and only after 1 am the morning after it recorded. Also, does not work on anything filmed live such as the news or sporting events.

    2. On one of the hoppers, go to menu -> settings -> network setup -> broadband -> use the red hotkey to make sure Moca is selected from the drop-down -> hit the blue hotkey two times -> bridging button should appear to the right -> select bridging -> if bridging is set to on, change it to off and select save.

    Not guaranteeing that will work, but there's a good chance it will. Probably only need to do it one one of the Hoppers.

    You don't. If you have PTAT turned on, then after 1 A.M. if you watch a PTAT show you will be asked if you want to skip commercials at the beginning of the program.
