    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Especially since 72.7 should also be higher on the horizon from any location in the CONUS. .. Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Hey, where did you get that spec. from? If true sounds like Dish's dpZ is using similar if not the same xpndr channel stacking frequencies as DIRECTV's SWiM. Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Although good to be on the safe side and use RG-6 cable spec'ed to 3000 MHz. It must be admitted that we don't yet know the frequencies of the new dpZ channel stacking scheme for the H3 or Walleys other than that they fall somewhere within 950-3000 MHz range. But since DIRECTV currently fits...

    As well as the capability of supporting multiple 4K clients without max'ing out the MoCA bandwidth? Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    I'm curious about this as well ... What real benefit is it for the H3 to have MoCA 2.0 capability if the Joey clients can only use MoCA 1.1? Perhaps the 4K Joeys will have MoCA 2.0 so multiple ones in an install can be easily supported by the H3? Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    CES 2016 = HOPPER 3

    I forget; How much of the HDD is the reserved partition for Dish? Based on previous Hoppers at least, though I'm sure the H3's will be the same. ... Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    Yes, just one coax run from the dish with a new DPH LNB to a solo hub as illustrated. Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    But I'm sure Entropic Corp. (inventor of the CSS) would have loved to sign a deal with Dish too at the time for their technology? [emoji6] Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Though I'm curious as to why here? DIRECTV now fits up to 22 tuners within only 950-2150 MHz on the coax for their latest LNBs. Dish has 950-3000 MHz on the coax to work with for the Hopper's tuners. Why would only 16 tuner support need fill up the bandwidth? Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Well I feel it may have been more of a pride thing for Dish in that they just didn't want to be seen as copying from DIRECTV's choice of the Channel Stacking Switch (CSS) technology with their SWiM system. So decided to stay with their conventional frequency stacking approach by going from DPP...

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    Yeah, I would guess that if the DPH LNB detects an H3, which should be connected to port 1, on power up, it switches to the new "DPZ" individual xpndr stacking mode resembling DIRECTV's SWiM method to supply up to 16 tuners. And port 2 becomes disabled so couldn't supply another H3 anyhow ...

    What wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3

    True, more specifically both the DPH WA triple and EA twin are only for the Dish "1000.2" Those who require 118.7W for internationals on the WA or locals from 77W on the EA must use wing dishes. A Dish 500+ for 118.7W and a Dish 500 or 300 with DPP LNBs for 77W. Sent from my SGH-M819N using...

    CES 2016 = HOPPER 3

    Yes I found that out laat night in a main thread on it in the "Hopper Zone" forum. Wasn't aware of these new "Dish Pro Hybrid" LNBFs. (Exclusively been a DIRECTV sub. for the past 20 years so haven't kept abreast on the latest on the other side of the fence [emoji4]). That being said, while I...

    CES 2016 = HOPPER 3

    Anyone get a look or familiar with the rear of the Hopper 3? Looks like it will definitely need at least 2 satellite cable runs to bring in all six DPP frequency blocks to support up to 16 independent tuners. But where does that leave room for the seventh DPP block for international service...

    Does the Dish satellite point in same direction

    More specifically, from your locale .... DIRECTV ~ 207° true azimuth. Dish's Eastern Arc ~ 164° true azimuth. Dish's Western Arc ~ 228° true azimuth. Sent from my SGH-M819N using Tapatalk

    Scott Talks Joeys with Vivek Khemka (VIDEO)

    Or that is to say its a satellite (950-2150 MHz)/MoCA (650-875 MHz) band diplexer I gather.

    Scott Talks Joeys with Vivek Khemka (VIDEO)

    OK, that should work; And I'll retract my prior statement of Kimka's probable error if he was implying something like this diplexor arrangement and not just a direct connection to the LNB from the SJ as it seems he was claiming in the interview. If fact with this diplexor hookup, a duo node...

    Scott Talks Joeys with Vivek Khemka (VIDEO)

    Well I think with this method if a solo node is used, you would need a both a diplexor and also a splitter somewhere on the client line from the node to create an another input for the "to node" line from such a diplexor since the client line from the node is likely to still be needed by other...
