    New VIP211K with existing EHD

    It tuned out it was a faulty power supply for the EHD. New power supply and everything is functional.

    New VIP211K with existing EHD

    I just received a new VIP211K to replace an existing VIP211. The receiver works fine but it will not recognize the EHD that I had on the old VIP211. I attached 2 EHD with no luck. I attached a flash drive to make sure the USB port was active and it was. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hopper Fan noise and Energy usage

    I think I remember someone quoted about 60 watts for the 722. If true, I would save 2x (622) 10 watts x 24 hours x 365 days x.35/kwatt = $60 savings per year. Not bad at all. Thanks statmanrich.

    Hopper Fan noise and Energy usage

    Now that the Hopper has been out for a couple of days, any updates on Hopper noise (Hard Drive Fan) compared to the 722/622. Also, any early power readings. I have 2 622s and 2 211s and need a slight push to go the H/J setup. By the way, my monthly rate would drop $6 if I upgraded.

    Answers to your Hopper Questions

    OK, let's see if we can get another question answered. On March 15th, as a new Customer, do you have a choice of the Hopper/Joey setup or a VIP setup or just a Hopper/Joey setup.

    Any update. My 622s both have the same issue. I've tried the setup change but it doesn't fix it.

    Bad News For Dish

    Navychop, You're right. All I do is watch more programs in HD than ever while hours of programming are backed up on the DVR ready for viewing. This doesn't suck.
