I do have the phone number. I hate making phone calls, I have massive anxiety issues and cannot think straight when I'm on the phone. If Dish makes me call to get a good rate when in the past I've been able to do it through the online chat or DIRT, then they've lost me as a customer.
Well, if that's the case I will be using that phone call to cancel. It's 2021 and I can buy a car or get a mortgage online, I'm sure as hell not wasting time on the phone negotiating with my TV provider.
My install went fine and my H3 saw the EHD without an issue. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I was also able to transfer my timers after about 10 attempts (the H3 kept saying it couldn't restore the settings), the Dish tech didn't even know that was possible so he learned something new :)
This thread has me worried, I'm scheduled for an H3 install today and moved all of the stuff I care about to a 500gb WD drive. If I can't see those recordings on the new Hopper before the tech leaves, will he leave the H1 for me to send back later so I can do an ethernet copy to the H3?
Don't forget the drive has to be formatted by the Hopper so you can't use it for anything else at the same time. Also plan for a lonnnngggggg wait, moving data from my 75% full Hopper ready for my H3 install tomorrrow has taken 16 hours so far.
Wow that would be a really interesting find if it works - the Joey in my master bedroom locks up frequently (2-3 times a week) and I only use a Harmony with that one. I'll try new batteries in the remote tonight!
I do this, I have a Joey in my theater but when my Mother-in-law comes to visit (not often) I move that Joey to her bedroom - all of my Joeys (I have another in the master bedroom) run off a single coax from the node in the basement with just standard splitters sending coax to each room.
My original Hopper (installed in the first week it was available to customers) is dying - keeps stuttering/freezing, originally started with just the Joeys then the main receiver too. Dish is replacing it (arriving today) and I've been trying to get everything moved off to an external drive but...
Wow my wife is gonna be pissed when she gets home tonight, her 2 main channels are CN and Boomerang because she's a Scooby Doo fan. I hope this doesn't go on too long, I love the Hopper too much to switch.
