    ABC App, Impressive

    Getting frustrated over not finding a place to watch/stream American Idol this year, I installed the ABC App. It's nice. Every full episode plus highlights are available, looks like a few days before you can see a full episode after it airs, and they strip out the commercials AND, it's free! I...

The apps I stream with, we don't talk about here, BUT, those and YouTube show PCM on my Sound Bar (/Polk Magnifi-Max Sr. connected via HDMI...

    Guys, I'm worried...

    It's been a very long time since JSheridan has posted on here. I can't see his profile anymore - it's info is hidden - so I don't know his last login and the last time I DID talk to him in PM was in February. He wanted to know how my CT Scan was going to be and when I told him shortly after my...

    Very Strange Issue

    Had a tech ask this question in a company email and it's one I've never seen before, so I bring it the experts!! I have a customer that had a hopper 3 and joey 3. The joey would not get the correct time from the hopper unless it was reset, then it would keep that same time until it was reset...

    Amazon Prime

    Is starting to be pushed to internal, in-house techs’ Hopper 3’s for final testing This tells me a few things. 1) Soon they’ll be pushing it out to the general public. 2) it looks to me like it’s only going to be on the Hopper 3

    Excessive Signal Loss

    About a month ago, my Sirius (not XM) Dash Kit (Not sure of the Model name anymore) started losing signal often, going to Check Antenna Connection and Acquiring Signal, sometimes with no trees around. I replaced everything; the dock, the antenna, the power and even shelled out 75 bucks for a new...

    Strange Thing With LG PLex App

    I have Plex on my Hopper 3, Firestick and my 4 yr old LG TV App. My LG Optical output is PCM only. I have no idea why, but regardless, it's why I normally run optical out on the hopper with my Polk 5.1 SS System. When the output is PCM/Stereo, the power light is white. When it's Dolby Digital...

    New Fee To Add Joey

    Well, I don't like this. There's a $10 fee to add a joey, aka the $25 fee for WiFi Joeys, unless you're a 1 Star Customer with Dish Protect Gold. This going to be a double nightmare when Sales reps do upgrades from VIP to Hopper Duo and not add the needed Joey for TV2 - which is very common...

    New On-Demand Commercial

    Today was the 1st time I heard the On Demand commercials touting over 80,000 shows and movies on VOD. Mine still shows 15,000 so they must not be uploaded yet, but I guess the rumor that Dish was adding 70,000+ Titles was true
