    Hopper3 has died, advice?

    Got the install today, kept my two old school 40 remotes and gave back a 52 (I think) we never used. I still have the new in box talking remote (54) and whatever came with the new Hopper3 (I think a 52 also). The auto backup of the remote seems to have worked, it appears all of our timers are...

    Hopper3 has died, advice?

    We've been using the old school remote with the Joey almost 100%, but a newer remote is out by the Hopper. The remote you can talk to is still in the box! Is there a way to check what the date of the backup is so we can try multiple remotes before I have to give one back to the tech?

    Hopper3 has died, advice?

    Thanks, the receiver was leased so I had to agree to the protection plan for 6 months to get a new one "free". It was the cheapest option. I have a tech visit scheduled for Friday, I hope it works out as I told them multiple times I'm not letting the tech in my house, they can stay outside and...

    Hopper3 has died, advice?

    So my 4+ year old Hopper3 has died. It won't turn on at all, there is just a humming/fan noise. No lights, no buttons work. We've had to do the "unplug, wait 5 minutes" to get it to works few times recently, but it seems to have finally kicked the bucket. Any advice to get it working or get our...

    U344 - can't record /set up timers

    I'm having serious issues with timers and recordings, but is says I am on U 343 from Feb 9, seems like there have been problems since then. Eta: how do I do a partial reset? I only see the option to "Reset to Factory Defaults", is there a sub-menu in there? I am afraid to click on it, I don't...

    Power Reset 'almost' Resolved?

    I was away for a week on vacation on saw there was an update on 3/19 while we were away. It seems like we haven't been having issues since we got back a couple days ago, but I haven't had time to "test it out" yet. I am pretty sure I shut off the Hopper last night so I will see tonight when I...

    Scott's Mini Hopper 3 Review

    Thanks, I have been on that screen plenty of times I just somehow missed the update version and date. Now how do I know if I have the most recent version? I have U304 as posted above, so that seems like the most recent for the H3? The 4K Joey has something different.

    Scott's Mini Hopper 3 Review

    How do you check what software version you have and when it was last updated? I can't seem to find it on any of the screens. If you have the inactivity timer turned off will it still do the updates, as long as you have manually shut off both the H3 and Joey (green lights off).

    Call them or contact DIRT and ask for an upgrade, back up tuners to your remote and recordings to an external hard drive. Unless I'm missing something specific about your situation?

    Telephone tested but wont display caller id?

    Caller ID is not working for me on the H3. On the original Hopper I just returned, it also stopped working a year and a half ago, but I managed to "fix" it a couple days before the H3 came by clearing the Caller ID history. It was nice for those two days.

    Official - I have a Hopper 3 Thread!

    So, I'm wondering, does H3 really have 16 separate tuners or is it 4 PTAT-like tuners? Not sure that it makes a difference to me, though, as long as it works.

    Official - I have a Hopper 3 Thread!

    I only had the original Hopper (no sling) before, can we still use Dish Anwhere if prepare for mobile is turned off?
