So, we go back with Dish to the Echostar days. Today we have 2 hopper1 with 2 joey1. One hopper has a sling and EHD and the other has a sling and OTA usb, and I have a EHD but not hooked up yet. I do have the feeling that the Hard drive on one hopper is starting to fail. With new software updates killing the normal operation of these units I was looking to upgrade. To a hopper3 and 2 joeys with Bluetooth. I did a little chat with dish and they wanted to offer me a hopper2 for free. Not really an upgrade. A few questions for those in the know. 1. Can I add the shows from 2 different hopper1 EHD to a new hopper3? 2. Have they worked out most of the bugs in the H3? 3. Do you think they would do the H3 upgrade for free? 4. On a hopper 3 how many remote slings will it handle? Today I can do two. Any other suggestions. While I don't post here often I am here weekly reading. Thanks for your help all.
