    I believe FOX is right, Dish is wrong with what they have done on copyrights and contracts with the AutoHop and the hoppers with sling. I just hope if they lose in Cali they are forced to block them all over the country and will have to rebuild these pcs of junk. Perhaps this time they can make them work like Direct's SWM and only require 1 cable from the dish or download software faster than the old receivers from the late 90's.

    FINALLY ESPNU IN HD!!!!!!

    Nope, Dish is right.

    Sling (and Nomad from D*), just taking the DVR portable. So if Fox is right on that, then every DVR out there would need to be shut down too. I'm sure you can't wait for that to happen.

    As to your rant on Dish's implementation of MOCA. Not much difference between what D* is doing from a wiring standpoint. Major difference is that from the dish to the Node (or splitter in D*'s case), Dish uses more than one. From there on it is one cable to one box. D*'s only benefit in the wiring is that in SOME cases you can split again at other places. I'm not sure that is a big plus.

    And having watched the software downloads on D* and E*, software downloads just aren't a big difference at all.

    Bias... you have a hopper with sling, so of course you don't want it touched. I'd love to see them trashed and remade to work/perform in a different manner. The downloads are horrible slow - it is 2013, no reason why these things should take longer than 5 minutes to download/reset and work.

    I suggest you do some work on your network if it is taking you that long. But then again, how many times are you doing downloads?

    Yes, I do have a Hopper w/Sling, thanks for noticing. But a DVR is a DVR, portability doesn't change that and that is exactly what the 'transfer' function offers, same as the Nomad from D*. So if you outlaw that, there goes all those DVRs.

    I am not sure what Fox has to lose from DishAnywhere? I use DishAnywhere to watch my programming in my office. If I watch a Fox program while at work, I will see every commercial they provide. Their advertisers will get more eyeballs on the ads using DishAnywhere. Without it, I would never have been able to watch that show at 2pm and therefore not seen the ad.

    What is the damage to Fox from DishAnywhere?

    I left Direct because their DVR's were so damn slow and I had the HR24. Don't get me started on the HR23 I had. I get your a Direct "fanboy". Why be a "fanboy" of any TV provider is beyond me but OK. My Hopper's run circles around the HR DVR's. My sister has the HR34 and is so damn frustrated with it she is ready to pay the fee and jump to Dish.

    I'm not a fan of any TV provider. I left Direct because I was so damn sick of the slow DVR's. The guide took forever to come up the changing the channel took forever. When and if they fix that I will take another look at them.

    Fox is full of it. Slingbox has been around for years and they didn't do a thing about it till now. They just want everything to go their way and its not happening. Plain and simple.
