    Not yet. I really hope Dish adds this feature back... Even the 922 has that option... Dish, please add this (and manual timers) back! While we're at it also the ability to password protect recordings and view recording deletion history... Why downgrade any features that the old ViPs have?

    I agree dish needs to add all of those features to the hopper.

    I was having trouble with the hopper wanting to do software updates around 3:30 in the mornings, right when my wife gets up to go to work and wants to watch tv . So I had to set a daily timer for channel 101 from 3:30 am to 4:30 am. So now it has to update any time before the 3:30 am or after 4:30 am. It's the only way I can still get updates and please the wife too. Would be easier if you could set the time you want it to update, like on older receivers.

    No way to change it yet. The Hopper data only spools at night. This data contains all the guide data, artwork etc to make the Hopper work.

    I have heard they are working to add a 24/7 Hopper data feed as well as making the hopper grab that data and updates using a free tuner instead of forcing the Hopper off each night.

    No ETA on when this will happen though.

    Guessing the 922 has a different "data stream" then? You can set the nightly reboot time on the 922, what does Hopper do differently?
