    2010 Prius no AM/FM after Sirius subscription expired

    As Dishdude said, the deactivation of the Satellite service should have no effect on regular OTA AM & FM stations. Do you know that AM & FM was working okay in the car when you still had the Sat radio active? In the past, I've had a 2008 prius, a 2010 prius, and currently have a 2013 prius...

    Can Tv's be mirrored with Hopper and Joey?

    I probably should have asked this earlier before suggesting the HDMI cables... Are all of your other TV's at least HDTV's with HDMI inputs? If you have older SD TV's, your only option for them is the RF Modulator solution that was also mentioned here. If they are all HDTV's or better, the...

    Can Tv's be mirrored with Hopper and Joey?

    For me, I drilled up from the basement side a hole large enough to fit the HDMI connector through and up inside the wall behind my Living room TV/Hopper, and also into the wall behind my Kitchen TV. I purchased a couple of inexpensive old-work low voltage brackets and wall media wall plates...

    My Hopper 3 has died

    Are you using the power inserter for the DPH42? I'm only asking because I heard that the DPH42 may appear to work fine without the power inserter, but it draws enough current from the H3 that it exceeds the H3's specs and could damage it.

    H3 System Status Check???

    Do you have PTAT turned on? Were you running the test during PTAT recording hours? I have seen Satellite test and Signal strength tests hang when PTAT is running.

    Amazon Echo/Dot Commands

    Add "On Dish" to an Alexa command for the Hopper to let Alexa know a common media control command (like resume) is for Dish. For me, I have noticed that when I haven't used Alexa to control the Hopper for awhile (several hours+), it sometime doesn't recognize I'm trying to control the...

    Bug Report: H3 Firmware U343 - Unable to create timer via guide

    It's the only receiver reset option that attempts to keep your existing DVR recordings and timers while erasing and re-downloading the receiver software. Tech support will usually guide you to do this if your receiver is malfunctioning and they suspect it is due to some corruption of the...

    U 341 now on the hopper 3 dvr

    Even though the manual recordings folders will not display the content, I have found that you can still at least watch the most recent recording in the folder if you select the folder (don't open it) and press the play button.

    You tube

    I too have a Hopper3, a Joey2.0, and a wireless Joey. YouTube has only ever been available on my Hopper. Netflix is available on all of the devices. I think I remember Scott saying awhile ago that Dish was only planning to put the YouTube app on the Hopper.

    Help! How long should it take for a manual software update (H3)?

    Check to make sure your DVR program listings sort oprtions didn't change. We usually have ours set to sort recent recordings to the top of the list. Sometimes after an update, it changes to sort recording A-Z. When it does that, and you're used to seeing current recordings at the top, it...

    Dish 50.0 (Voice remote)

    Yeah... Voice commands on the Hopper can be slow, or timeout when your kids are sucking up your 3MB DSL connection with youtube and netflix videos too.

    no signal at night

    If you can see the dish, check for bee or wasp nests on the lnb. The insects fly around during the day, but all return to their nests at night and reduce/block the signal. - Paul

    U313 for Hopper 3 is now released

    "Smart Power On" has existed for more than a year in the Hopper w/sling and possibly earlier hoppers. The feature disappeared when Dish started using the Cabon U/I. It analyzes your viewing patterns and on receiver power-on, it uses the channel/time viewing data to auto-tune to the channel it...

    Hopper 3 composite output video letterbox, but guide is anamorphic

    Composite video is 480i video that was originally designed to be viewed on a 4x3 video screen. Anamorphic composite video is taking a 16x9 video source and squeezing it to a 4x3 image. Everything in the image looks distorted skinny and taller than is should be if you look at the image on a 4x3...
