    Hello all

    I have ordered 2 Hopper 3's from Solidsignal and I am using the Eastern Arc will I get the HD channels there?
    I have to change the Lnb too to the Hybrid Lnb.72.7- and 61.5-degree orbitals.

    You will only be able to use ONE Hopper 3. DISH only allows one per account at this time and the hybrid LNB will only work with one.

    I talked to Dish before I ordered them and they said no problem having 2 Hoppers in same account.

    You can have two Hopper 1 or Hopper 2 but you can only have one Hopper 3.

    Just called them again a hour ago and they told me no problem.I have called them twice and the same reply. I told them we had 2 Hopper 3 unit and 1 Joey and all was good to go.
    They gave me the price and info needed.
    They tried to get me sign up right now we can't the units will be here Sat. by Fedex.
    So when they get here I will pull the 2 Hopper1 units and LNB and put the Hybrid in and the New Hybrid Hub.
    Get it done and call them.

    And then get to call them again when you can't activate 2 Hopper 3's on your account.

    Especially when the hybrid LNB can only connect to a single H3 and it must be on port 1 or it will not work.

    Just installed my Hopper 3 this weekend, and was explicitly told only 1 Hopper 3 with the Dish 1000.2 and Hybrid LNB. I guess if you had 2 Dish's on your roof you could have 2.
