    0 of 0 Tuners error

    Just got the Hopper 3 yesterday and have twice had to reboot, getting the infamous 0 of 0 Tuners error. I see lots of discussion about it here, including information saying a software update was supposed to fix it. My shows it is running U544 - reporting that it updated early this morning...

    Can get 61.5 but not 72.7

    We had a big storm last night and it blew my tripod over - anchored and all. The "fold around" corner of the dish is bent. I set it back up and ended up going through a complete setup to get any satellite signal at all. Finally got 61.5 to come in, however it is considerably weaker on the...

    Program Guide Episode Numbers

    I wonder why the episode numbers are so random on the program guide? Not expecting a solution - I just download an episode guide from elsewhere and watch series based on title, but it seems strange that the episode numbers on the program guide don't work.

    I have a VIP722K that I've used in the RV (fulltime) for several years. Dish keeps offering me a Hopper but I have been hesitant because I see people saying that Dish won't install in a RV. Has anyone gotten the Hopper 3 for use in a RV? Also, I have the 2 LNB Eastern Arc set to swap out...

    Steps to swapping eastern and western arc LNBs

    After my recent travel adventure swapping from western and eastern LNBs I'm thinking I need a better understanding of the steps involved in making the swap. At what point do you run the check switch? As soon as you make the physical swap? After you get signals on the swapped out LNBs? If...

    LNB Problem?

    We travel in our RV and I have a 2 LNB eastern arc (61.5 and 72.7) that I swap out with the western arc LNB's as we change areas. I have done this many times so I think I know what I am doing. Yesterday, though, I couldn't get both 61.5 and 72.7 at the same time. When aimed correctly, I got a...
