The second tech said Dish has deactivated the split tuner feature outside of Prime Time that allowed the users to schedule 4 network HDTV stations to record using one Tuner. Dish has removed cability to record networks on one tuner outside of the 3 hour P/T window. For the last 1.5 years Dish Hopper with Sling and the Dish Hopper have been able to record the 4 HDTV networks outside of Prime Time on one tuner, if the shows were at the same time. The programming side still works that way. I have morning shows all showing the same one blue tuner forToday on NBC, Good Morning America on ABC and CBS This Morning on CBS. All three morning shows did get recorded. But the Evening news even thought the highest priority does not get recorded. I have the Evening News on three of the networks. the programming guide all say they are recorded on one blue tuner with same color code for series record: Blue for ABC Evening News, NBC Evening News and CBS Evening News. And for 3 days in a row none of the shows got recorded. they say cancelled by user master bedroom. And 3 days in a row they have been cancelled. I called Dish Advanced Tech Support several days in a row. the first day an advanced tech said to delete the 3 timers network timers and recreat them. that did nothing. The second tech said Dish has deactivated the split tuner feature outside of Prime Time. The Programming side Hopper box, I am told, looks at the satellite and if the shows are on the same satellite they can use the split tuner. Only Dish forgot to tell their programming side that schedules the tuners as the network programs at the same time outside of prime time still have the same color tuner, in my case blue color coded tuner assigned to multiple networks at the same time. the DVR button says n shows recorded and says 0 conflicts. but for the actual recording does not work as the programming guide says they will. THE HIGH PRIORITY DOES NOT SEEM TO MATTER. they just do not record even though the 3 news shows are the top 3 of of the first 4 timers. instead all lower priority shows get assigned to the other tuners and they seem to record if not on a network station. I assume here from the programming side, sees that the high priority timers are scheduled to be recorded, so lower priority shows can be scheduled to be recorded. but in the implementation, the split tuner is now disabled outside of the prime time windows (8 to 11), but the proramming side of the hopper still thinks it is working like it has for the last 1.5 years. Very Bad Move on Dish's part to take away a feature that has giver more capability to their customers over the last 1.5 years. It is like removing 3 of our tuners. Dish still advertises record 6 programs at once but now it applies only to Prime time. I am sure their lawyers will put that in the fine print. But first they ahve to correct their Programming of the tuners and the Priority to get that working correctly again, albeit with 3 less tuners outside of primetime.
