    Attn Dish Support: BAD CS EXPERIENCE/Need OTA

    I've been a customer for many, many years and I get treated like crap. Terrible customer service. Called to see if they can re-hook up my outside Antenna that DISH disconnected on the last upgrade I have a couple of years ago. And they want to charge me $95 for something that they did, and that...

    Latest Update Broke 5Ghz Wifi or Broken Hopper?

    So I got the latest software update (the one with Google Assistant built in) this morning, everything was working fine. We had a bad storm which knocked our power for a few minutes and when everything came back online the Hopper would no longer connect to my router. I did the connection reset...

    Dec 13th Update Broke My Joey Connection

    Is anyone else having this issue... At random times my Joey 4k will lose the connection to the Hopper and I have to reboot the Joey again. The link quality shows "strong" but it just becomes "unlinked" for no reason at all. Even when unlinked it shows link quality as strong. I believe this...

    Issues with Voice Remote's Voice Usage?

    Is anyone else having issues with the voice remote lately? For example, I say "Channel TEN", it does nothing yet it shows the text "Channel 10".

    Other Showtimes Search?

    Does anyone know how to get the "other showtimes" or whatever it's called from the info menu? This is really annoying. When there's something on that's already playing, sometimes I want to watch it from the beginning by recording another showing of the movie. However, there is no option for that...

    PTAT Enabling Auto-Hop w/Hopper 3?

    Ok so I finally decided to enable PTAT today. The booklet that came with the H# said there would be a screen that you clicked a checkbox on to enable the Auto-Hop feature, but that screen never popped up. I looked in the options and settings and cannot find anything to enable it. I thought that...

    When turning on the H# it always goes to the "home" screen. Does anyone know of a setting to turn it on to TV instead. It's very annoying. 4K Joey goes right to TV. Thanks Jay

    Would anyone have any idea what's wrong with my Weather Channel app on my Super Joey?

    From Original Hopper/Joey to HWS & Super Joey Better Picture?

    Did anyone else go from the original Hopper/Joey to the new HWS and/or Super Joey and notice the picture being noticeably clearer? It was always a decent picture for the most part, but man it seems so much more sharp & clearer now. This is on both my 60" DLP & my 42" LCD. I was downstairs where...

    I am in need of some advice... So I got sick of not having enough tuners and the Joey being so slow and called Dish to replace the Joey. They told me $3/month more for a Super Joey (2 additional tuners) or $5/month for another Hopper (HWS version & 3 additional tuners). So for $2 more I get an...
