    Two Hopper Receivers, how to record from one to the other?

    Regarding "just going to the bedroom" and recording from there. Yes, that's the work around. It's just one of those things that I thought was user error on my part, or an incorrect menu setting in the software. Like I said, if first Dish CSR would have told me that it was no longer a...

    Two Hopper Receivers, how to record from one to the other?

    Thank you for your response. It would be great if the DISH CSR's would know their product. One CSR was "certain" that this feature was still available. They won't upgrade our old Hopper w/sling to a Hopper 3 AND let me keep our second Hopper w/sling at the same time. We take the bedroom...

    Two Hopper Receivers, how to record from one to the other?

    I've called Dish four times on this question, and I've spent about three hours trying different "fixes". With out success. Back story: BEFORE the last major update, my main Hopper receiver in the living room could record three programs at the same time. IF I wanted to record a fourth program...

    Undelete (restore) one program via Slingbox?

    Hmmmmmmm.... It's the Sling Adapter. I've never considered plugging it in and having two slings. Would I gain anything by plugging this into the Hopper with Sling? Thanks for your help.

    Undelete (restore) one program via Slingbox?

    Charles: I'm not tracking regarding your answer. Our home Hopper does have Sling built in, plus I have the old Slingbox from my of 722 DVR. Can you please explain further? Thanks to both for your responses.

    Undelete (restore) one program via Slingbox?

    Is it possible to restore one program when using Dishplayer to hit a home Hopper? I know that you can do this from the Hopper directly, but I can't figure out if it's possible via Dishplayer. Thanks in advance.

    Can't recognize receiver at dishanywhere.com

    We just finished watching the Seahawks win over Arizona. Used the laptop to hit the Hopper at our residence. Have used the laptop to watch many hours of programming off of our Hopper at home. Both Firefox and Explorer work, but Explorer works better. Using a Droid Bionic on a Verizon...

    Can't recognize receiver at dishanywhere.com

    I've noticed that sometimes I get this error, and if I change my browser to Firefox it will connect. DishAnyWhere, for me, seems to work better on Windows Internet Explorer than Firefox. I don't know why it would make a difference, but it does. Another thing is the Windows Internet Explorer...

    I did try History a while back, and it wasn't useful at all. I will check it again. Thanks.

    Saving Search Filters?

    Is there any way to save a search filter? I always have to dig through the stack of search options to setup the search parameters. I wish I could save the filter, and just reuse it, as I always select the same options. If it's not possible, could it be requested for a later addition? Thanks.

    Moving Hopper content over the internet?

    We have one Hopper with sling in the RV, and a second Hopper with sling at our residence. The residence Hopper is downloading and storing programming and we watch that programming over the internet by streaming it to a laptop with HDMI out to the TV. Is there any way to download some of...

    Hopper always recording:

    On our older Dish DVR it was always recording programming. You could turn on the TV, and if the DVR was on a channel you could always back up the DVR for up to 60 minutes. Then you could watch that program, or record it for future use. On the Hopper it HAS to be a program that is set to...

    Hopper won't stay on channel.

    When I pull up the tuner menu I see that there's usually one being used, sometimes two. I would understand if they all three were being utilized, but that's not the case. Also it seems like it doesn't always force a channel change, but usually it does. Thanks.

    Hopper won't stay on channel.

    I thought I read a thread about this a month or so ago, but I can't locate it now. Here's the problem. We want to listen to music on both hoppers at the same time for most of the day. Every time it comes time to record a program, the Hopper changes the channel to the new recording, which...

    Move Hopper to RV, Dish Tuning Question(s)

    Brussam: I've read you response several times. I did get the Dish connected to all three sats, but it was an ugly exercise. I'm set up in the driveway in an attempt to iron out some of the bugs before we go on the road. What I think you're saying is to go into the Dish Pointer menu, and set...

    Move Hopper to RV, Dish Tuning Question(s)

    I've been searching the forum for help, but no luck so far. We have two Hoppers. I moved one out to the RV today. Got out the portable three LNB, western arc dish. Connected the single node to the two cables coming out of the Dish. The two cables from the Dish went on the #1 and #2 ports on...

    Line Insurance?

    Great input. Much appreciated. So, when we upgrade from a 622 and a 722 receiver, will Dish try and charge me for a tech visit? We are not currently under contract, and I would re-sign for two more years. If I added the line insurance to cover the cost of the visit, how soon could I cancel...

    Line Insurance?

    What's the general consensus on the $7.00 per month insurance program? Worthwhile?
