    2 Hopper3 possible?

    I am holding off until two hoppers can be used on one account.

    If they allow this, I may consider the upgrade. I currently have two hoppers and three joeys. I need the 2 TB of storage in each so that I can play recordings off of both . You can't access all of the recordings from Dish anywhere if they are on external hard drives. Sixteen tuners are...

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    Yes I came to that conclusion myself a few posts back. My smart TV does have those applications. Thanks for your consideration. To your knowledge, does Dish provide any 4K other than from sources like Netflix? At this point even though I have a 4K TV, I still don't see the advantage of the...

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    Thank you for that information. The Vizio M65-C1 has three HDMI ports that have HDCP 2.2 support and it has the Netflex and Amazon applications. Therefore the only reason I would need the Hopper 3 would be for when Dish actually provides additional 4K content.

    Playboy $16.00/month

    I have the "Everything" pak and will now be charged $16.00 per month when it used to be free with the "Everything" pak. Will I be charged a fee for discontinuing it? It is not worth $16.00 per month. The programing is repeated too much.

    There is software out there to rip to a hard drive or make a backup. I just filled out my form about two weeks ago. I purchased the TC-P54VT25. What 3D movies have you found so far that have the best 3d affects? There have been about a dozen releases so far. I just watched "A Christmas...

    Well just got a look at my install

    Are they supposed to "mount it to a roof beam"? I haven't checked the attic but I don't think he looked for a beam to screw the bracket of the Eastern Arc to.
