    Anyone else cutting back their Dish service due to lack of sports?

    If your in a price lock and change programming you loose the guaranteed price. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    When did DISH start offering discounts on movie pack again?

    Showtime is $10.00 per month. I have only paid $5.00 per month for a few years. In your account programming section select premium channels. Uncheck Showtime a popup should offer it for five dollars per month for 6 months. Just agree and your done.

    Nothing wrong with your Hopper. This has been discussed in the forum for over a year. Dish must be aware of the problem but ignores the complaints. My Joey 3 does it every couple of days. Like Conway said the Hopper's picture is normal. Push the red button on the Hopper to reboot.

    airtv dual tuner adapter

    Did the connection come loose? Usually a reboot of the Hopper fixes most problems. Give it a try.

    H3 Booting

    One of the Dish employees in this forum said plug your Hopper directly into the wall outlet. A surge protector has caused this issue in the past.

    Hopper 3 just died

    Sign up for the Dish Silver protection plan via your on line account. Then give Dish a service call. I did this a few years ago then cancelled after the call.

    Hopper 3 Reboot

    Are you saying that the Hopper should not be plugged into a surge protector. If you do have a power surge this would leave your AV system at risk. Does it have an internal surge protector?

    Dual Joey output?

    That will work but you will only be able to watch the same channel.
