    Still no FOX in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale?

    So has Dish just given up and forgotten about us in FL? When the whole FOX blackout was resolved, WSVN Ch. 7 Fox in South Florida wasn't part of the deal. For the past few months my channel 7 was just a message telling me to contact FOX over the dispute, but now channel 7 no longer exists on my...

    Issues with Google Home / Assistant Integration

    Now that Dish has Google Home integration, I have been playing with it but have had nothing but problems. Hoping others here have tried and can share success stories. So far I can turn the TV on and "show dvr" but most things work sporatic at best. I have a Hopper and 3 joeys, and whenever I...

    Should I get 4K Joeys instead of 2.0's?

    I agree 10000% I just had my install. Got both 4k Joeys and Joey 2.0...the 4K are noticeably faster. The 2.0s aren't painfully slow like the original Joeys were, but you do notice a delay from when you press buttons to when something happens. My recommendation is if you need a joey for a small...

    Hopper 3 wont transfer Timers

    Unfortunately it might have all been for nothing....we can't get the Joeys to work and now the installer things it's because we restored the settings & timers before getting the Joeys working so he wants to hard reset the system. Hopefully once it is all working I can restore again....sigh...

    Hopper 3 wont transfer Timers

    First we un-paired the 52.0 remote so that the 40 remote was the only one connected. I then went back into the diagnostics screen and did a restore to hopper from remote. After that step the H3 rebooted but I still didn't see timers. I don't know if they had copied and it was just still doing...

    Hopper 3 wont transfer Timers

    OK we finally got them. I removed the 52 remote and restored again...still weren't there. Then I connected the old hopper to the new one and did a "transfer recordings". Not sure which of those steps finally did the trick, but the timers are saved. Incidentally, none of the recordings copied as...

    Hopper 3 wont transfer Timers

    Tech is here doing install right now...I tried restoring the timers from the remote, the Hopper 3 downloaded the "backup", rebooted, but no timers! Am I doing something wrong? Is there a place to get timers from an old remote other than the diagnostics screen? Any other ideas?

    Techs leaving Hoppers?

    I have my install tomorrow morning and there are still some recordings that just won't transfer to my EHD. Some of them are new PTAT that haven't converted yet, but others (about a dozen or so) just give an error and won't transfer. Will I be able to transfer them from my Hopper to H3 after the...

I really want the Hopper3 but I also want to be respectful of the amazing Dirt...

    Hopper Timers Backup for H3

    Thanks...sorry I read some about this on other threads but most of them were pre-release so I was hoping once some people actually got them in hand the answer might be a little different. What about transferring recordings from multiple hoppers to the H3? Any issues?

    Hopper Timers Backup for H3

    I currently have 2 HWS and am upgrading soon to the H3. Trying to figure out if there is any way to combine all my recording timers. If I backup the timers from HWS1 to Remote 1, and from HWS2 to Remote 2, can I then restore from both of those remotes to the H3? Or would it be better to restore...

    I am interested in a Hopper 3 Upgrade. Thank you!

    Sorry if this was already answered..been reading threads like crazy on the hopper 3...when they say 16 tuners does that mean with. PTAT you can really record 19 shows at a time, or are there really 13 actual tuners and with PTAT it can record 16 shows at once.
