As a former DirecTV subscriber, I was curious about how the Hopper functioned and performed. I found some information online, but I would have appreciated if someone had posted something like this before I committed. I ultimately jumped onboard anyway, so I made this video with the hope that others may find it helpful. It's not meant to be all-encompassing. Just somewhat informative and educational. The one thing that continues to impress me about the Hopper DVR is its performance, especially during playback. Sorry for the low quality. It's tricky working a remote with one hand and holding a smartphone steady in the other.
