    Press abd hold "0" on the remote to enter the Back up Wizard. If they have the ota module, the Wizard will also store the scanned ota stations.

    Hopper acting weird

    I have both my HWS's plugged into UPS's. Never had any problems. I've always had any receiver I've had plugged into one. I've been with Dish for close to 20 years. In case of a brief power outage, the dvr won't reboot. Important if you are recording.

    Upgrade from DVR 722 to what? Help..

    I think waiting is a mistake. Get the better dvr now with better features. Add the 4K Joey when it becomes available. Who know when that will be. Until it is actually released it is nothing more than Vaporware!

    Go with a Hopper with sling no. You won't be disappointed.Bigger HD. Faster processor.Depending on how you set it up, you can record 7 different programs at one time with the ota module. It's light years ahead of the 722. You can always add the 4K joey later.

    Dish Support?

    The Hopper will support 2 ehd's at a time. You can have unlimited ehd's. With 2 Hoppers, you can swap ehd's between them. With the Hopper with built in Sling, you can access the Hopper and what's recorded on the internal drive from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Great feature if you...

    Dish Support?

    An advantage of having 2 Hoppers is that if there is a timing conflict when you set up q timer, it will ask you if you want to use the other Hopper to record.

    Dish Support?

    The Hopper will tell you what % of the internal hard drive us used. That way you know when to transfer recordings to the ehd.

    Dish Protection Plan worth it?

    I've been with Dish for close to 20 years. If I have a problem, I add it for a few months then drop it. Can you imagine how much I would have spent over that time if I had kept the PP.
