    I HATE Google Assistant

    Same here. I do not use Comcast's gateway and all I ever get is YouTube results from voice search.

    Hopper 3 power usage with a 1200 watt inverter

    Best to buy a nice little Honda 2000w inverter generator. You will not be happy using an inverter w/2 6v batteries to run all of that.

    At the end of 2 year price lock?

    Just went through this. I have 120+ and H3. Got a $15 Prefered Customer Discount and a $5 DVR fee discount. For me that ended up a better price than going with Flex and the packages I would have needed to add on to get the programming I wanted. Downside, another 2 year commitment.

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Is it Dish or is it the source? No one yet has answered that question. Unless someone had viewed both the source and the Dish broadcast side by side on the same display it is only opinion IMHO.

    A 4K TV will always upscale to 4K. No one can change that.

    Are you sure it was Dish restricted bandwidth that is at fault or the actual Fox broadcast source?

    DISH Assisting Customers and Communities Impacted by Irma

    I had 85+ MPH winds at my house in Fort Myers (most likely higher but my weather station went off line when we lost power). My dish is still aligned.

    DISH Debuts Hands-Free TV on Hopper DVR with Amazon Alexa

    It isn't, as long as the Dot can get a WiFi signal it will work. If you are within 10' of an electrical plug you can easily plug it in using a 6' extension cord and it will work. Me thinks it's just an excuse to buy another gadget :)

    You mean there is no place else in the same room as the TV that has an electrical plug that is within 10 feet?

    Why not just move the Dot away from the TV?

    Dish Network Sues Kodi Add-On Library “TV Addons

    So just think if the studios offered to stream those movies for $5 or less and didn't make you wait 6 months after release. Wonder how many takers they would have for that and how much that would cut into the so called Kodi problem? Maybe Orange is the New Black will give some hint. The full...
