    Yes - my Hopper with Sling / Joeys / Super Joey work fine, Hopper to switch to switch to my router ( then on to Google Fiber router out to internet), Bridging turned on in Hopper. One Joey via coax, one via ethernet (via Ethernet over powerline and switch at the Joey end, and at least one switch to the other end).

    The TARDIS.
    [TimeLord04's DISH Network Setup:]

    Original Install Date: February 24, 2021

    New HD DISH Network Satellite DISH at back of attached garage. RG6 Cable, (Home Run), fished through attic into 'Reclaimed Space' above garage, into 'Office' - Reclaimed Space.

    RG6 Cable run through wall into Attic 'Office' above garage, behind Upstairs Spare Bedroom.

    Hopper 3 Installed in 'Office' next to U-Verse NVG-599 Gateway. New Home Run RG6 Cable now connected to 2-Way Splitter. 2nd Out of Splitter to RG6 Input of HIC. Output of HIC Terminated. 1st Output of Splitter to RG6 Input of Hopper 3.

    Ethernet of HIC connected via Cat5 to 2nd Netgear GS-108 Gigabit Switch, daisy-chained to 1st GS-108 Gigabit Switch. Cat5 Cable connected from 2nd Switch to Linksys AC2200, Tri-Band MESH Node Router.

    Cat5-e connected from AC2200 to NVG-599.

    [EDIT 2]

    Connected 2-Port RJ-11 Phone Jack Splitter to 'Out' of parents' Vonage Device. Connected one RJ-11 Cable to Port 2, connected Cable from Port 2 to House Wiring to back-feed telephone signal to all phones in home.

    Connected one RJ-11 Cable from Port 1 of RJ-11 Splitter, connected Cable to Hopper 3 Phone Jack. Now, "Caller ID" from Vonage Device runs to Hopper 3 and displays across ALL TVs in Home.

    [NOTE:] Bridged Mode OFF, due to conflict between DISH Hopper 3 and U-Verse NVG-599 Gateway. (This Gateway is electronically identical to the 5268AC Gateway, which is KNOWN by DISH to have issues with their equipment.)

    ======================== Office Complete ========================

    Family Room: Samsung 65" TV, connected by Cat5 to GS-108 Gigabit Switch. Sony Blu-Ray Player connected by Cat5 to GS-108. ROKU 4K Ultra, connected by Cat5 to GS-108.
    Samsung 65" connected to Wireless Joey - "Family Room" by HDMI-1, ROKU 4K Ultra connected to Samsung by HDMI-4. Sony Blu-Ray Player connected to Samsung by HDMI-2.
    Wireless Joey - "Family Room" connected to GS-108 by Cat5. Linksys MESH AC1300 Dual-Band Node connected to GS-108 by Cat5.

    Master Bedroom: LG 40" TV, connected by Cat5 to Linksys MESH AC1300 Node. Wireless Joey - "Master Bedroom", connected by Cat5 to Linksys MESH AC1300 Node.
    LG 40" TV connected to Wireless Joey by HDMI-3.

    Bedroom 1: Samsung 32" TV, connected by Cat5 to Netgear GS-105 Gigabit Switch. Panasonic Blu-Ray Player connected by Cat5 to GS-105.
    Samsung 32" TV, connected to Wireless Joey - "Bedroom 1" at HDMI-1. Panasonic Blu-Ray Player connected to Samsung at HDMI-2.
    Wireless Joey - "Bedroom 1" connected to GS-105 by Cat5. Linksys MESH AC1300 Dual-Band Node connected to GS-105 by Cat5.

    Bedroom 2: Amazon 32" FireTV, connected to Linksys MESH AC1300 Dual-Band Node by Cat5. Amazon TV connected to Wireless Joey - "Bedroom 2" by HDMI-1.
    Wireless Joey - "Bedroom 2" connected to Linksys MESH AC1300 Dual-Band Node by Cat5.

    MESH Network: "Starfleet.UFP" - DHCP from AC2200 Router Node, "10.x.y.z" Address spectrum. All other WiFi connectivity from above hardware nullified/deactivated.

    [NOTE:] With the MESH Network, the DISH WAPs CAN be ELIMINATED.

    [NOTE 2:] Instead of MESH Network solution, one MAY use 'Ethernet over Powerline' Adapters and go direct Ethernet that way from the Joey Locations to the Router, Modem/Gateway serving the Network. Beware, IF your Power Company is NOT stable on the grid, and subject to Spikes, Surges or other 'malfunctions of power distribution' that this mode of operation MAY NOT suit your needs; and MAY damage equipment connected this way. The WAPs CAN be ELIMINATED with 'Ethernet over Powerline' as well.

    ======================== Home Install Complete ========================

    Once the MESH Network went in, I turned off ALL extraneous WiFi 'Noise'. Only our Cell Phones and Computers maintain WiFi Connectivity to the MESH Network.
    The WiFi on the NVG-599 goes 'unused', now. Unfortunately, that CANNOT be deactivated.

    I think I managed a pretty clean Install of DISH, Joey, and TV equipment. [EDIT] Just would have been nice to have the HIC on Feb 24, instead of late August.
