Has the OTA antenna upgrade been released? I've been laying low so I haven't heard.
Not yet. It's probably still in testing.
I for one, and I suspect a lot of Dish users are patiently waiting for OTA to become a reality for the Hopper before upgrading their system to the Hopper/Joey system.
Summer is winding down now and our patience is being tried.......
Does anyone know if there really will be an OTA option for the Hopper?
Would be nice if I could get PBS in HD with one.
OTA is a must for me. After it's available for Hopper/Joey, I'll take a serious look to see if there are advantages to replacing my 722/622 setup.
It should be in beta testing soon.
It's not an antenna, but USB OTA tuner. Have you seen such Hauppauge WinNT-HVR 950 ?
Horrible for a product that was supposed to be released "this summer."
It is still summer until Sept 21st.
That's astronomical summer; for us it's June, July and August by a calendar.
+1... try telling the kids who just returned to school that it's still summer. :nono:
Does anyone know which calendar is Dish using?
Okay... then yes, I've seen it. Just wondering when Dish is gonna release their version.
Perhaps it's going long way as the tuner is third party supply and had own developers of HW and FW inside ... dish had enough workload to adapt Linux driver of the stick and incorporate its control into existing DVR environment including MRV support.
Lucky for me I get the Big Four in HD plus PBS in HD via sat. Also get all my other OTA channels in SD that I need. It would be nice to get them in HD on H/J however the sat feed supplies some channels that i couldn't even pick up OTA. PTAT helps as far as the need for the extra tuners, but as everyone else said I'm starting to get impatient. Meanwhile PTAT and the 722k fulfill my needs.
Then again it would be nice for Dish to fix all the bugs rather than rushing out the OTA tuner.
I agree with what is being said here. I like the idea of the Hopper, but it is a non-starter for me without OTA. I make do with two 622s. But OTA including some side channels are a big part of my viewing.
This would be an Echostar project, wouldn't it?
