Thanks For The Answer 'Rad', James Long'.
I Really Like The Fact That You Can Record More Than 2 Shows At The Same Time.
Can a single tv switch between the tuners. Could I watch all 3 tuners from 1 tv like I can switch between the turners on my 722?
i think so
click the red button and pick the tuner u want
You can use the red button to change tuners but if no one is watching a tuner and nothing is recording on it the tuner will change to "available" instead of the channel tuned.
No, you can only watch 2 tuners at a time on 1 TV. The Hopper TV can use the PIP feature, which uses 2 tuners. This feature is not available on the Joey. If the third tuner is not in use, attempting to switch to an idle tuner does not connect the TV to that tuner. The Hopper/Joey will connect to an active tuner. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.
To be clear he has access to all three tuners from each TV.
He loses control of the tuner as soon as he selects another. If no one else is using that tuner (watching or recording) the tuner will go to "available". A Hopper will keep up to two tuners active (due to PIP/swap). A Joey will keep one tuner active. Tuners not in use will become available.
Just had a second hopper added today and by accident found out that you can connect joeys to hoppers with only a network connection no rg6 at all. Was this always possible?
Oh, that's encouraging discovery !
Can you monitor the traffic, measure at least occupied bandwidth by the client ?
One of the recent software updates did that. Wasn't available at launch.
Where it was in notes then ? Reading these I don't recall such feature was announced ...
Announcing would mean supporting.
Joeys have USB port, Wifi adapter= wireless HDTV? Don't have a Joey on my home system, this would be beyond cool.
Why every time when you bringing 'logical' answers, I hear Charlie's voice during his Chats ?....
I don't have anything loaded on my Ethernet to track, but the "Counters" page on the Hopper shows MoCA running to each Joey at 292,635,024 bps. Counters do not show the Ethernet speed, but I only have 100 mbps at home and a Joey connected to only the Ethernet seems to work fine.
It would be interesting to check Ethernet load when three Joye will play some HD content.
Just had a thought, theoretically I should be able to move a joey anywhere in my house as long as I have network access. I guess I test that theory out tomorrow when I have more time, I'll also try and do some load testing.
