    The problem with reading threads is that they contain problems reported by a relative few. Read the threads with that understanding. The Hopper3 is an excellent, reliable, and very capable DVR. 4k content at present is some VOD, Sports Bar (showing 4 1080 screens on a 4k TV), and direct access to Netflix 4k. They did broadcast the available 4k Olympics programming. None of the cable and broadcast channels are available anywhere in 4k.

    We just got our H3 last weekend. So far we really like it. Still learning a few shortcuts and tricks that I was used to on my Genie at DTV. The Dish Anywhere works SO much better than Direct TV Mobile. Which didn't. Work. At. All.

    We had our Hopper 3 for 3 months before it entered a death spiral of continuous start-up. Ours was unbelievably SLOW much slower than our hopper 2 as far as calling up menus of recordings etc. Also the new remote has fewer buttons requiring multiple button-pushes for things that you could do with one press of a button before. Hoping that ours was defective from the get go and it's replacement will at least be faster. Meanwhile I am without service over Superbowl weekend :( We never had any recording conflicts but all those shows are now lost.

    That is why some people have multiple Hopper with sling instead of 16 tuner Hopper 3 that you can only have one per account.
