    Issue with old HHD for my vip211k

    Have you tried disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD? Sometimes that gets rid of the reformatting message if you do it a couple of times.

    Euronews and americas voice

    I miss Headline News. They actually reported news and not political opinion like it is today with CNN, MSNBC and Fox.

    EHD problems on H3 with U548?

    I've had that "needs to be reformatted" message come up a few times as well when connected my 1TB WD Mybook to the Hopper 3. Disconnecting it and reconnecting after a few seconds fixes it.

    Anyone else cutting back their Dish service due to lack of sports?

    I did just that since I have no need for ESPN until college football starts back in the Fall. Downgraded to Flex with locals and will be saving around $10 per month.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    crodrules, I spoke with Dish CS and they said I can receive 4K programming if I subscribe to the network. I'm guessing that since I don't subscribe to FS1, that is why I'm not getting it on channel 540.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    It says "this channel is currently unavailable or event broadcasting which you are not eligible to view". I guess with my Dish America Pack I can't watch 4K events. If I would've known that I wouldn't have upgraded to the Hopper 3 in the first place.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    I have the Dish America package. Guess I'll find out tomorrow if I can watch the Big East tourney in 4K or not. When I checked the channel guide for 3/10 and 3/11 it just said "off air" for those channels.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Dish's website says you have to subscribe to America's Top 120 or above in order to qualify for 4K programming. Is that really the case?

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Great news. This will be my first 4K event since updating to the Hopper 3 a month ago.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    So, the Big East tournament will be shown in 4K for those with a Hopper 3?

    My Dish Experience

    Even SD channels don't look that bad.

    Cancelled Dish

    Millions of subscribers to overpriced and under performing GEO satellite services would be more than willing to pay it. That is a fact.

    Cancelled Dish

    $200 doesn't sound too expensive to me and is more than worth it if the service is an improvement over what I have now with Viasat.

    Starlink hasn't released pricing for the home equipment.

    Not likely. I'm surrounded by national forest.

    Cancelled Dish

    Yep. I'm hoping Starlink pans out in a couple of years. It's my only hope for better internet at this point, unless I move closer to town.

    Cancelled Dish

    Cellular internet isn't even an option for me due to very spotty service.

    Cancelled Dish

    I'd love to do the same, but living in the boonies means I'm stuck with either dial-up or satellite for internet. Cord cutting is not an option.

    Hopper 3 channel guide

    All is good. I went with rharkins' recommendation and used parental controls to remove all the channels I don't want to see on the guide. It's just taking me a while to get used to the Hopper 3 considering I've been with a VIP receiver for many years.
