    Joey has MOCA, but not Internet. Used to work fine...

    Thanks! This did the trick when I tried it last night. I'll see if it still held on for a day when I get home. Of course...one of my WiFi routers never came back online, but that's an Apple product and another problem all together.

    Joey has MOCA, but not Internet. Used to work fine...

    Thanks. I suppose that is the first thing tech support will ask me to do... While I have tried this, it has not been EVERYTHING disconnected at the same time. I know sometimes that helps (was avoiding because a couple of the power cords are a pain to get to, so I did the power-button-reset...

    Joey has MOCA, but not Internet. Used to work fine...

    Thanks. I did check this and it is definitely ON. I went through every menu and submenu I could find in Settings and Diagnostics. I could not find anything else to check or reset. It seems like as long as the Hopper has internet (I used a wired connection), and Bridging is turned on...

    Joey has MOCA, but not Internet. Used to work fine...

    We've had a Hopper 3 and two 4K Joeys for a few months now. The Hopper has internet connected on the lower port (according the config screen) and there is a good MOCA connection to the Joeys. The Joeys used to work fine for Netflix and PPV, until we lost internet at home last weekend. Now...

    Hopper 3 Remote is Awful

    Ahhhhh, thank you Dish Support Group. I am not alone in my frustration. :) Snap! I'm glad I asked. I saw some threads about the 54.0 in my search (before posting this) but did not realize it was backlit. That's a help, anyway. Well, as I still have my new equipment to transfer over to the...

    Hopper 3 Remote is Awful

    I saw some posts on here but not a solid support group for users dealing with the transition from their old Hopper w/ Sling remotes to the new short Hopper 3 (52?) remote... less buttons and non-intuitive placement. So I'm griping here. I'm hoping someone will direct me to the best place to...

    Upgraded to one Hopper3, Now I need an EHD recommendation.

    Ugh. That's a drag. After going through the effort to preserve these off the Hopper, only to have them disappear.

    Upgraded to one Hopper3, Now I need an EHD recommendation.

    While now you have me wondering... A lot of devices will only recognize one type. But I guess if the H3 is just going to format it anyway, it doesn't matter.

    Upgraded to one Hopper3, Now I need an EHD recommendation.

    Thanks, guys. Does it have to be formatted in a particular way to be recognized? (FAT32, NTFS, etc.) While I can format from my MacBook, when you buy them they will often say "Mac Ready" or "PC Ready" on the box. Okay, I'm used to having two Hoppers so I'm aware of how the "Sources" menu...

    Upgraded to one Hopper3, Now I need an EHD recommendation.

    My QUESTION is there a particular list of external hard drives (or one you recommend) that is good for the Hopper3? My installer could not recommend one. I tried a WD MyBook on my Hopper2 and it never worked. Also, as I have never used an EHD on the Hopper, how do your shows appear in the DVR...

    722 to Hopper

    tromply, just in case you wanted to have them do it and save the trouble, you should be able to negotiate a free install as an existing customer. with a 24 month agreement you don't pay anything for the hopper. well...however they did it I just upgraded from a 2 leased 722 & 1 owned 508 system...

    Moved recording from 722 to HD, can I get them on my Hopper?

    This first "hit" didn't work. Recontacted the reps and will try the next thing they suggest. I tried connected it to both Hoppers (front and rear USB port) with no luck. Also tried connecting to the Joey which said "feature not supported"

    Hopper doesn't send audio out the optical port (for all channels)

    Setting the Audio to PCM only seemed to have fixed it! I had to switch away from the quiet channel and back but the sound returned. It also seems to have gotten rid of the loud differential between certain channels also. I'll post if I notice any other issues (or side effects of not being...

    Hopper doesn't send audio out the optical port (for all channels)

    No dice. Strangely enough, my Sony TV only outputs stereo from it's audio output jack. It's really odd and I wanted to use that for something in the past. I tried to get the rationale for that out of Sony...good luck. Seems like it'd be a pretty easy thing to fix with firmware but when you...

    Showtime Anytime

    Has anyone else heard updates on this? I did ask Dish recently, and they made it sound like they were working on it but it was not available yet. I think that is BS because there is nothing to work on...they just have to work out an agreement with Showtime to accept our accounts and we can...

    Hopper With Sling, Optical Audio Cutting Out

    This is troubling to read. I've never had issues with my 722s, just upgraded to Hoppers and I think I have this issue. This thread has been going on since July and it hasn't been resolved..... Oy.

    Hopper doesn't send audio out the optical port (for all channels)

    I'll give that a try when I'm I'm this evening. I did notice that it is set to "dolby/pcm". The line/RF setting was greyed out. Volume leveling was enabled. Thank you.

    Hopper doesn't send audio out the optical port (for all channels)

    So, I have two Hoppers w/ sling. On one of them, I have it going to a TV direct. No audio receiver connected. Sound is fine. On the other one, I turn off the TV speakers, and all the audio goes out the optical jack to my Yamaha receiver. I had no issues on the prior 722. With the...

    Moved recording from 722 to HD, can I get them on my Hopper?

    Didn't work. Haven't called dish yet. I plugged it into both Hoppers w/ Sling and got the same error. Tried plugging and unplugging the drive. Always came up with the error. Did a power button reset on one of the Hoppers, tried again...same problem.

    After Hopper upgrade, SD programs do not expand to fill screen?

    Yes, I also have the Hopper w/ Sling. The format button only works on HD programs that are already stretched. For the SD programs locked in a black bar format, the format button gives me no options. I just push it and it shows "normal."
