    Nearing the Point of Ordering Dish! Hopper 3 Issues?

    My experience with the hopper has been bad. Constant problems and no help from dish. It was their excuse to up the rates with a buggy piece of equipment.

    Recorded shows keep interfering with live shows

    If I pause a show on a channel where I also have a recorded show saved, when I hit resume it goes to a message that says the recorded show as finished and forces me back to live tv which cause it to jump ahead and I lose all of the show I paused. The thing is that the recorded show has nothing...

    Fed up with Hopper reverting to recorded show when I pause tv

    Hi, I mentioned this before and got no response so I will post the details again in hopes someone has a thought! Ok, so I am watching channel 205 from 3-6, I also have two shows set to record at 4 and 5. I am watching regular tv on 205, not the recorded show. Let's say I pause tv at 4:45, at...

    Hopper 3 goes to sleep at random times.

    My Hopper 3 goes to sleep regardless of what you are doing. It will go to sleep while scrolling the guide, watching a show etc. with no message. This happens all of the time.

    HWS problem?

    Aside from the device failing you may want to see if a different patch cable helps. Is there anything new near the cable that could be causing interference? Power cords etc.

    Weak Sat signal After Switching To Hopper 3

    Hi all, I have had my Hopper 3 for a while now and most things are going ok. One issue I have now is the sat signals seem to be much worse than before (previously on 922). I know the installer changed the LNB and now I lose signal much faster and more frequently than before. I even told the...

    Hopper 3 / Netflix ui-113

    I tried the Netflix app when I got my Hopper 3 and the picture was crap. I went back to using the Roku. By far the best device for Netflix. It works better for Netflix that other devices I have tried, and that's a lot! Just my thoughts.
