    U700 software for hopper with sling

    Update for my issues. Last night ran into same problems. Paused a recorded show and when we went to resume, nothing would work. Unplugging twice did no good.

    Official SatelliteGuys CBS / DISH Dispute Thread

    Just got the crawl tonight during the news on CBS KPIX here in the Bay Area. Here we go again. I live in a valley and get no OTA. Only watch the local news and Survivor on KPIX. With so much alternative programming out there don’t let the door hit u on the way out CBS.

    Problem watching premium channel recordings from free preview.

    Just yesterday I watched the first four episodes of Game of Thrones season 4 that I had recorded years ago during a free preview and they played fine. I have a HWS with the new CUI.

    DISH Hopper Carbon UI Testing Forum - PLEASE READ!

    Got that this morning also. Quickly selected Remind Later. Made me think of all the people that don't follow this forum and have no idea of the storm coming.

    S542 Hopper with Sling

    Just remembered something else. In diagnostics there a selection for Update. That may have been there already, I haven't been in diagnostics for a long time. I also didn't select it, not ready to force CUI on the household. If that's what it would have done. I didn't want to take a chance.

    S541Old CUI Update Hopper with Sling

    Just checked and main HWS got S541 on 10/20 and my second HWS got it on 11/02. But nothing has changed like other people have said. So I've read this thread and looked around on the HWS, is S541 suppose to have the CUI? I've been warning my wife for a while of what may be coming.
