    First post, great info here.

    My 922 finally died and I'm thinking about a Hopper. I currently have a DPP 1000.4 dish getting the 61.5, 72 & 77 sats. I have two coax lines coming from the DPP LNB.

    For the Hopper 3 I would have to change to a DPH (hybrid) LNB, is that right? If I just went with a Hopper 1 or Hopper with Sling (3 tuners) would I also need the hybrid LNB? Or would my existing DPP work? Would I need a Hybrid Node if I just used the receiver and no other Joeys? ie: go directly from the LNB (whichever I need) to the receiver?

    I'll just use the Hopper without any Joey's and keep my 211k on the account as a second receiver. Is this OK with Dish?

    If your 922 died just get it replaced with a Hopper3 and a Joey instead of that 211. The hybrid LNB and hub are part of the replacement. With the failure, you might get a good deal on replacement. You'll wonder why you waited so long.They are not replacing 922s any more, are they?

    I own them both so no contracts. I like to take the 211 along for a ride now and then, don't think the cable would be long enough on a Joey.:(

    No support for the 922...

    The 211 is OK with a Hopper3 for "tailgating". I always wondered about worrying about contracts. How long have you had the 922? Fees are the same - leased or owned.

    It only lasted a couple of years, I see lots of overheating problems with them, probably why they were discontinued.

    If you want to use the 211 at home with a Hopper 3 I believe you will need a second dish for the 211.

    Thanks, see that now. Got an eastern arc hybrid lnb + a hybrid solo hub coming from FleeBay.

    Man you gotta do your homework for this new system if you wanna go DIY!

    If you want a better remote and by better I mean one where you don't have to crawl through menus as much, get a 40.0 remote.
