2 Hopper + OTA Question
I'm a long-time Dish subscriber and currently have (1) 722k and (1) 612. I've been waiting for the OTA tuners to come out, and am glad this price drop has coincided with its release.
I really only want 2 Hoppers total, so today I ordered 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys. The CSR waived one of the Hopper Fees, so it's just $50 up front, and as I understand it, I need to refuse the two Joeys when the installer brings them to end up with just 2 Hoppers (from another forum here).
My first question is, how do you add the OTA tuners and can I get one for each Hopper (2 total)? The CSR said that I would need to order those online and have them delivered in time for the installation. Now, when I go on to MyDish, it shows that I can't do any changes/orders: You have an open appointment, please complete your request after your appointment is complete.
Second, she also mentioned that they are $50, not the $30 I've seen cited here. What would y'all recommend for getting those added to my order?
Third, she said that the technician would have to transfer my content from the 722k to the Hopper, even though I have the EHD enabled and a hard drive. Can't I just copy my content to the hard drive and transfer it to the Hopper when I want to? It seems like that would take an installer a long time.
