    EHD Folders

    Is it possible to create folders on an EHD? My wife has a number of different folders on the internal drive and we are getting low on disc space. I would like to move folders and recordings to an EHD but I don't know how to do it. Help!

    New EHD Problem

    I have installed a third EHD and when I transfer recordings to the new drive, I get errors.

    I want to add an EHD

    I would like to add one or more EHDs. I see that Dish requires that they be externally powered. The only drives that are available at my place of purchase are not externally powered.

    I have a few questions about attaching external drives to my Hopper 3. 1.) What is the largest drive that I can use? 2.) How many drives can be used at the same time? 3.)

    New Remotes

    We have just bought new remotes for one Hopper and one Joey due to the existing ones wearing out. I know that there is a way to copy timers to the remotes so that if the Hopper dies, you can restore the times to the replacement Hopper. We have the newest software and I am not sure how to copy...

    Two Hoppers

    We have two Hoppers and two Joeys. I would like to replace one of the Joeys with a Super Joey. When I contacted Dish, they told me that this can't be done. Is there a good reason for this or were they just giving me a line.

    The shows on CBS ran about 40 minutes behind today due to NCAA basketball. We recorded "60 Minutes","The Amazing Race", "The Good Wife", and "The Mentalist".

    For economic reasons, I recently downgraded from AEP to Dish 120+. My wife was upset that ESPN remained but Soapnet and The Cooking Channel went away. I have since upgraded to Dish 250 to get them back. I cannot understand why ESPN is on a low tier package but Soapnet is not. I thought ESPN cost...
