    Hopper won't recognize my external hard drives

    The other thing I would add to the 3 hard drives not showing content but being recognized is I have 3 USB 8 gig sticks that I have used for 2 years, I know they are not supported but truth is they have always worked flawlessly better than the expensive WD external actually, so that it is 6...

    Hopper won't recognize my external hard drives

    My issue is a bit different, all three of my drives are WD, external drives with their own plug in power. All have worked flawlessly for over a year, I leave 2 plugged in all the time. These drives ARE RECOGNIZED by the hopper, when you plug them in you immediately get the message and they show...

    audio volume difference between tuners vip 922

    I have started to notice a difference between the audio volume levels between tuner 1 and 2 on my 922.

    What do I lose if I switch from 722 to 922?

    For me it is simple, I upgraded from a 622 thinking I was getting a more advanced reciever. Stability is terrible, key features the 622/722K had do not exst. The reciever has been out over one year and these are not fixed. I will wait for the next software and than move back to the 722K or...

    "Upgraded" from VIP722 to two VIP612... now unsatisfying HD

    I have a 722 and 2-612's all three have great HD picture quality and I also have a 1000.4 dish. I also have a great outside antenna and yes the over the air quaility for locals is definetly better than the local Dish re-broadcasts, at least in Dallas. If you have the ability to hook up an...

    Little surprised, but the Dish HD lils seem to look better than OTA

    I live in Dallas with a roof top antenna, hands down the OTA's are better than dish, using the dsiplay on the TV it is easy to confirm that what ever the resolution of the over the air, Dish is the same. Fox 720, abc 1080i. Still the OTA is slightly better, Dish must slightly compress the signa.

    I just received a new 612 to replace my 508, I already have one 612 and a 622. Long story short the 6.3 uhf pro that came with the unit will not work. I was able to download and activate using a 5.3 remote off my 622. Tried the working uhfpro form my old 612 it does not work either, tried new...

    When will the 922 be out & will I be able to watch HD on more than 1 TV?

    One option is to get an HDMI signal splitter, a good one cost 150 to 200. Both TV's will have to be used on TV1 but is cheaper than another HD DVR and saves the monthly charge.

    Dish 622/722 L6.15 Issues Thread

    I live in Denton 55 miles from the station, I have an outside antenna with amp. I have no issues of any kind with channel 4 and I record freqently on the OTA channel with no issues, I prefer it over 004-00 as it has slightly better resolution. Would like 6.15 for the EHD folders asap
