I take it Dish will activate a Hopper and Joey system if you buy them from a vendor and install them yourself ?

Thanks
Yes, this is the only way to self install. If you have any trouble getting everything activated, please let me know.

Yes.
But they will press you very hard to send a tech ... because you're blah, blah ... Cannot do that !
If he purchases, and installs it on his own, we will not require a tech.

I thought so, but during activation got enormous pressure from CSR regarding mandatory tech's visit.
For leased upgrades, it is required. If the OP has any trouble activating purchased equipment, he is more than welcome to send me a PM and I can activate the equipment without requiring a tech

Why buy equipment when DISH will charge the same fee to use it? I've seen new Joeys for sale on eBay for $175.00. When I called Dish, I was told it would still be $6.00 a month to use it. So get it free or pay?

Or did I miss something?

Yes.
It's ongoing argumentation since the lease model came.
And 'buy' proponents has many points to do that. See older threads ...

Yep. It's $7 mo. for each Joey or addl. Hopper.
