    Is it possible to download programs recorded on my Hopper to a hard drive, then attach that hard drive to a Wally in our motorhome, and watch the recorded programs? Thank Much.

    From what I have read the answer is no. But it would be nice if we could.

    It is too bad that Dish did not make the ViP DVR data recordings compatible with the ViP non-DVR (411/211/Wally).

    If the DVRs could just read the data from the 211/Wally without reformatting it would have been nice.

    Now if you have a Hopper w/Sling / Hopper3, you could use a PC orone of several clients to stream from the Hopper to the other TV.
