Does anyone have 2 Hopper 3 installed in one location ?
Dish is not allowing more than one Hopper 3 on an account... and the current hardware requirements mean only one Hopper 3 can be connected to the LNB/node. So there are technical and policy limitations right now.
just install second set of LBF and the node...
Will DISH put them all on the same account?
nope, but if you have brother/sister/GF/etc who will have own account, why not ?
This assumes that someone is interested in having two accounts, and paying for two full accounts just to have a second Hopper 3... and it assumes there is a physical location to actually install two separate dishes.
So you recommend a customer to pay $190 a month for say the Top 200 just to have 2 H3s?
Wow great advice
sorry, but you should be more realistic as an adult
that's the life !
Why would you need 2 Hopper3's anyway ? Just get the 4K Joeys for additional locations, slap an external HD on the H3 for more space, and you're golden.
pretty simple - more then one 4k TV working simultaneously
The 4K Joeys can handle that.
well, tell how many 4k streams a hopper could send to 4k joey simultaneously ?
Well since you can have six Joeys on a H3 I would say SIX
HD, not 4k
I would be glad to see official dish statement how many 4K streams H3 could pass to 4k Js
A sales oriented DISH web page states: "If you have multiple 4K TVs in your home or if you’re considering adding more in the future, this whole-home technology is for you. With the 4K Joey, you can watch Ultra HD programming on any 4K TV in your home. Our Joey 4K receivers connect with your Hopper 3 to let you watch 4K TV in any room in your home where you have an Ultra HD TV."
4K TV - Ultra HD Channels & Content | DISH
I have not seen a specific limit for 4K Joeys.
as I'm reading the PR official statement could be translated to ONE 4K J - "on any 4K TV in your home" - not on ALL TV in your home ...
The "one" is not specified ... so I do not know where you imagine reading that. Probably the same place where the haters imagined the Hopper 3 not being able to tune 16 satellite transponders (up to 19 channels with PTAT) because they could not wrap their brain around the published capabilities. (Or you are inappropriately applying published limits for other systems to DISH.)
From the press release way back in the day...
"Support for seven TVs – Hopper 3 supports up to six Joeys simultaneously, powering a total of seven TVs at one time. The DVR is compatible with the standard Joey, Wireless Joey and 4K Joey."
At no point to they place limitations on the 4K Joeys... so the inference is that you could be watching 4K programming on a Hopper 3 and up to six 4K Joeys all at the same time. IF the Hopper 3 could not handle this, they would need to have spelled it out right there... but they didn't... so I'm inclined to believe it can drive them all IF you have them to drive.
to finalize your confidence in 6x4K streaming by H3 we need an evidence of it
perhaps some of rich members here will have such setup to give thumb up ...
