Depends on how he replaces it.tampa8 said:Do not get the 922. I can't be anymore direct than that. As for the Hopper, you are correct there is presently no OTA module available. You can always just replace the 722 with another one for now until the OTA module is available. That will not (or should not) incur any kind of contract change.
I just wanted to let everyone know the Hopper OTA module was released earlier today. The module connects via USB and has one built in tuner. The Hopper OTA module is available at www.mydish.com for $30.Rduce said:I am suffering a similar dilemma, I want to upgrade to a better unit, but I cannot go with a Hopper because of no OTA and I have gotten mixed recommendations about the 922. Some folks like it, some folks hate it. So I guess I am stuck with my trusty 722K until such time as there is OTA for the Hopper.
I'm [almost] bought 13 OTA tuners for the H. Only at checkout I discover that.jsk said:T.... I assume you wouldn't be able to buy 2 OTA modules for one Hopper, right?
Hopper only supports one OTA tuner. You can by two modules though.jsk said:Too bad it is only one OTA tuner and not two like the 722K. I assume you wouldn't be able to buy 2 OTA modules for one Hopper, right?
And what the reason to buy two OTA USB tuners? Why not three ? or Thirteen ?thomasjk said:Hopper only supports one OTA tuner. You can by two modules though.
I was being facetious. Does it make you feel better that I edited my post.P Smith said:And what the reason to buy two OTA USB tuners? Why not three ? or Thirteen ?
