    Home media app

    i just want to confirm that the "home media" app does not play Mkv files. If not, any chance it will in the future? My personal video has a mix of formats. I would really like to be able to watch these videos from my hopper vs Roku.

    Problem while watching a delayed recording

    I like to setup recordings for sporting events and start watching the game while it is still recording. I noticed that when the recording stops, the status screen pops up and jumps to the end of the program(like I have finished watching it). I may be only half way through watching the game...

    Hopper3 Update taking out External Hard Drives

    I just want to add that the sources folder shows up if you have a second hopper(like I do). My sources folder showed both of my hoppers and my external drive until the Oct. 21 update.

    External Hard Drive Help

    It is looking more and more like a software issue. Many reports of HWS u221 and Hopper 3 u331 problems. Not with everyone, though.

    U331 Software Release for the hopper 3 dvr

    I have 2 hoppers with sling. Both have 2tb external drives connected. One of them no longer sees the ext. In my troubleshooting, I discovered that the visible ext hd can be seen by both hoppers, but the other can't be seen by either. Also, neither hopper will recognize a usb device attached...

    External Hard Drive Help

    I thought that I would add that my Family Room Hopper w/sling's external drive works on both my Hoppers. It has been connected for over 2 years. The external drive on my new hopper worked fine on the install day. I can;t get either Hopper to recognize another external drive.

    Two Hoppers vs Hopper 3

    I currently have 2 regular hoppers and was wondering if it would be better to have a Hopper 3. My wife primarily uses one Hopper in the Family Room and I use another in my "mancave". We do watch several programs together, but many we do not. Currently when we watch a program on our respective...

    Sharing recordings with Hopper 3 and Joey

    Thank you Tron2012 for your reply. I do have another question. We have programs that we both watch, ones that she watches, and ones that I watch. What is the best way to separate the 3 groups? I don't want to be able to see all the shows she has recorded and she doesn't care to see mine...

    Strange Cursor Movement

    That's very interesting. I never thought about the problem existing because I had two Hoppers. Maybe I should have connected the dots since it was happening on both Hoppers. It does seem like Dish would be aware of this. The said they had no complaints regarding this issue. Are there...

    Strange Cursor Movement

    I have tried the unplug route. No luck. One Dish tech told me I had too many programs recorded and should start deleting. I told her that my hard drive was only 42% full.

    Strange Cursor Movement

    I hope I can explain this problem I am having. When I am browsing "my recordings", the screen will show the refresh led bar and then the cursor will jump to the top left button which is the Primetime Anytime button. This is a pain when I am down the list of recordings. This same type of...
