Hopper and Joey First Look Click here for a downloadable PDF DISH’s Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR [sharedmedia=core:attachments:20006] DISH’s new Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR is more than a new top of the line DVR, it is the centerpiece of a system that allows customers to experience high definition and 3D television throughout their home. The Hopper / Joey system is intended to replace every receiver in the home. In the next few pages I will introduce you to Hopper and Joey and discuss how the system measures up to that goal. The key features of the Hopper / Joey system are the ability to share HD content across standard coax cable throughout the home and Prime-Time Anytime capture of all major network programming every night of the week using a single tuner (HD local channels only). The Hopper works with the existing Sling Adapter and supports DISH’s standard OnDemand services, including 3D and 1080p titles. DISH is currently selling systems of one or two Hoppers and up to four Joeys (second hopper required for four Joeys). Leased systems require professional installation. For new customers a single Hopper and up to three Joeys are installed for free. Basic Specs: Hopper: Input: One “dpX” feed from node. 3 Satellite Tuners No OTA tuners (future) HDMI and Component HD outputs Composite SD outputs Digital Audio output Connections for two Ethernet cables, three USB devices (one on the front panel) and a phone line. 2 TB hard drive (2000 hours of content) with 500 GB (250 hours) reserved for customer use.
