    Hopper3 dvr timer

    On Sunday nights I set a Manual timer for CBS programs from 7PM to 1159PM CST. That way if football runs over I record a long enough period that will record the shows I watch.

    Hopper 3 Extremely Hot

    I found these PVC pieces at Lowes and place them under my hopper. They are just the right size and raising it up helps keep it cooler I think.

    Bluetooth headphones on Hopper 3

    I see you can connect wireless headphones to Hopper 3. Once they are connected are they always connected? I am trying to figure out how they work when connected do you turn them on and off each time you want to use them. Are the regular tv speakers or if you have a sound bar still working. Once...

    Locals down?

    I had the same issues on all locals in Tulsa Ok. However only the HD channels were out if you switched over to the SD channel they all worked. This has happened before on one channel but never all of the locals.
