    Cabling question.

    I started with 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys when they first came out. I have since returned one of the Joeys for lack of use. Do I need to do anything to the cable for the returned Joey? Terminate it, remove it? "John"

    NBA League Pass fiasco

    This is about the 3rd year in a row that Dish has charged me for the NBA package after I tell them I don't want it. They used to send a letter telling you to call if you didn't want it. I would call and they would still charge me saying they had no record of me calling. This year they didn't...

    2nd remote for Hopper

    I ordered a new remote for the Hopper but the instructions say to unpair the old remote. I don't want to do that as I want two remotes. Can I just skip that section and go to the "Pair New Remote" section of the instructions?

    Help! Hopper recording on its own

    I currently have 3 recordings going. The problem is that I only set up 2 of them. The odd ball is a Fox Network movie that doesn't show up on the daily schedule list or the timer list. The other Hopper doesn't show anything for this either. I have no way to cancel it.

    Joeys hooked to wrong Hoppers

    My son discovered today that the installers hooked the Joeys up to the wrong Hoppers. We now have 2 heavy users sharing the same Hopper. Is that something I could easily change myself or would it be wise to call the installers back?

    Missing Resume option on VIP722

    I have noticed lately that I no longer have a resume option while viewing recordings. If I am watching a recording and switch to live TV, when I come back to the program my only options are "view Live TV" and "start from the beginning". Am I having a serious brain malfunction? I have had this...
