    HOPPER 3 UPGRADES

    If they allow this, I may consider the upgrade. I currently have two hoppers and three joeys. I need the 2 TB of storage in each so that I can play recordings off of both . You can't access all of the recordings from Dish anywhere if they are on external hard drives. Sixteen tuners are...

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    Yes I came to that conclusion myself a few posts back. My smart TV does have those applications. Thanks for your consideration. To your knowledge, does Dish provide any 4K other than from sources like Netflix? At this point even though I have a 4K TV, I still don't see the advantage of the...

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    Thank you for that information. The Vizio M65-C1 has three HDMI ports that have HDCP 2.2 support and it has the Netflex and Amazon applications. Therefore the only reason I would need the Hopper 3 would be for when Dish actually provides additional 4K content.

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    My primary television in the living room died yesterday. It was a 55" Panasonic Plasma 1080p HD set that was about six years old. I decided to upgrade to a 4K set, Vizio M65-C1. So suddenly the upgrade seems more attractive. But I have a question about streaming. Can I get 4K (compressed)...

    Thinking of not upgrading to Hopper 3

    I currently have two Hoppers with Sling and three Joeys. I have external hard drives connected to the two Joeys. I have noticed that I only can play from content on the external hard drives from the Hopper that is connected to. I can't play the content of the external hard drives from the...

    Playboy $16.00/month

    I have the "Everything" pak and will now be charged $16.00 per month when it used to be free with the "Everything" pak. Will I be charged a fee for discontinuing it? It is not worth $16.00 per month. The programing is repeated too much.

    Well just got a look at my install

    Are they supposed to "mount it to a roof beam"? I haven't checked the attic but I don't think he looked for a beam to screw the bracket of the Eastern Arc to.

    Statement from DISH - Not Getting the New HD?

    I am in central NJ as well, Neptune. I got the Eastern Arc. We can't get 129 in our area. If you go to Post 475 in this thread there is a further explanation. Do a search of my name and you will see how I made out.

    EA Signal?

    Do you have the proper gauge cable going to the 722k? This thread recomends RG6. http://www.satelliteguys.us/free-air-fta-discussion/199993-coax-cable-basic-component.html Its only a "shot in the dark".

    EA Signal?

    The tech bought a chart with him that he said pertained to NJ, NY and parts of Pennsylvania. The highest reading for 72.7 for various transponders was 60, for 61.5 was 66 and for 77 was 44. I copied the chart.

    EA Signal?

    Get a tech out there as soon as possible. There is at least a 30 day warranty on the installation so that it will not cost you anything. Its sounds like you have a dish 500 pointed at 61.5 and a dish 1004.4 pointed at 72/77/. What happened? Couldn't they get all three with the 1000.4? You...

    EA Signal?

    The 1000.4 was installed on the 21st. The signals were low, particularly at 77 which was 19. I had a tech come by today. When he checked the signal at 77 there was nothing. When he came down he said some of the bolts had not been tightened. He said he peaked it higher. My signal now at 77 is...
