We bought a Dish Sling Adapter from Amazon last week. Our goal was to access and control our receiver from the Internet so that we could set timers, watch recorded programs, etc. from anywhere via WIFI using the Dish Anywhere app on a phone, iPad, PC, and tablet. Today we plugged the Sling Adapter into our Dish VIP722K receiver. The light on the Sling adapter came on. The Dish Anywhere app running on an iPad showed a connection to our Dish receiver, but we could not watch recorded programming, watch live TV, or set new timers. In a text chat with Dish support we were assured that the Sling adapter was supported and that we needed to call the broadband support desk at Dish for help. The tech at Dish broadband support told us that Sling adapters no longer work with any Dish receivers. This seems to be a recent development, but he could not provide the date when it went into effect or a link to a document explaining the change. He told us that if we need the functionality that was provided by a Sling adapter we would need a new receiver - either a Hopper or a Hopper 3 with built in Sling capability. Either of the Hoppers will involve an installation fee, additional monthly fees, and the hassle of migrating our current library of recordings to a hard drive that can be attached to the Hopper. Is this the way Dish typically does business? Silently de-supporting hardware? Is anyone currently using an older Dish receiver with a Sling adapter?
