Three Hopper system possible? DIRT input maybe needed.
Actually a 2 Hopper system and a single Hopper system.
We just figured out that what we ordered isn't going to work (Install set for tomorrow afternoon). We ordered 2 Hoppers and 4 Joeys. But, that's not just for our house. One Hopper and 3 Joeys are for the house and One Hopper and 1 Joey are for our 5th wheel camper (provided the installer thinks that's a go).
We just figured out that one Hopper and 3 Joeys isn't a good idea since there are potentially 4 TVs to service and only 3 tuners. And since I've seen discussions of what can happen when someone wants to record something and watch something else at the same time, potentially more that 4 tuners would be necessary.
So, is it possible to have 2 Hoppers and 3 Joeys at our house and another Hopper with one Joey at our 5th wheel camper?
Thinking caps are a go. Let me have it!

i'm assuming you are talking about separate accounts?

No 2 Hoppers (6 tuners) per account is the limit. If you need another Hopper your going to need another account. (Sorry I know this is not what you want to hear)Scott

The camper should not be a separate account, we won't need to be changing locals. We get the Distant channels through All American Direct and they will suffice for travels beyond our Spot Beam, I think. We don't have the camper on a separate account now.
