    Got to say, I love the new ui and ability to add more folders. Just dirt slow! Hope they figure out how to speed it up on these old hoppers.

    Edit:. Not loving this. Connecting to an ehd takes forever. Shows what's on it relatively fast (30 seconds), but after you select a show it either doesn't connect or takes 1 or 2 minutes! Must be Dish's way of forcing you to the Hopper 3.

    Are you on a Hopper 1? If so, good luck--Time to get a Hopper with Sling.

    Just started another thread on this issue. My first gen hoppers suck with the latest update. I also don't really see any benefit for me other than the new look. Sluggish response and tech support was no help with this. Seems like Dish is taking the Apple approach in making your old hardware obsolete via software upgrades.

    seems to me you're forcefully drifting to H3 ;)

    I am being driven to the H3 with this upgrade. Just placed an order for all new gear in the house. I guess the fact that Dish is going to replace it all at no charge is not the worst thing. Obviously signing on for another 24 months is to their benefit but with the bandwidth we have available in my area moving to streaming services only is not an option.

    Yes I did get a deal this time. The Hopper 3 is a nice upgrade from a pair of Hopper 2000's. Response time is much faster with the new UI and so far so good and moving from a 2 Hopper and 3 Joey setup to a single Hopper 3, a 4K Joey and three Joey 2's saves me a couple bucks a month in equipment fees. Very happy with it so far.
