    hopper update time

    With S342, the Hopper update was changed and it would ask if you wanted to update at any time between the hours of 1-6 a.m. regardless if you were recording or not. That was when it became a PITA for me since I watch and record shows during those hours. If I told it Yes it just went into standby...

    My EHDs are not getting any more of their artwork restored beyond what I already observed and reported. In fact, some of the newer movies I just recorded this week and transferred are now showing generic channel logos in place of the artwork which was there when I recorded them! Nice to know...

    As a follow-up to those who have had the artwork on their External Hard Drives changed to generic channel logos, DISH actually did send an update that morning. It happened at 2:30 a.m. but it was only sent to the living room. My other Hopper didn't receive an update of any kind. I have hundreds...

    I'm aware that issues similar to this have been happening for several months now and carrying over into each update since S342, and I'm one of those who have posted and reported about some of them, but this was different to me since it actually showed in the TV Activity that a tuner was being...

    I had something strange involving the recording and timers happen this evening just an hour ago. I had just finished recording The Crazies on Syfy from a set Timer Event. When the movie finished and the recording ended at 12:30 it saved The Crazies to my DVR in My Recordings but when I viewed...

    On Demand Issues

    I have a two HWS setup and no Joeys and I've had this happen a few times when trying to watch a VOD movie on either of the Hoppers. The pop-up message appears while accessing the event in Rentals. When I try a second (or a third time) it then works.

    Here's something new: Select a previously paused version of this event to resume. Living Room 5805days Den 14min That's right, my HWS was reporting that if I resumed the Living Room version of my 30-minute recording it had 5,805 days remaining whereas the other location had 14 minutes.

    I already posted in the S502 thread earlier this morning about how upset I am about the artwork images now missing from many of my saved recordings on my External Hard Drives. The channel logos are accurate and in some cases when it couldn't identify the channel it supplied the generic DISH...

    Recordings Switching Channels And Corrupting On Hopper?

    I had something similar happen twice on my HWS with earlier software updates but I haven't experienced it since S342. I'm not sure if it corrupted the recording because once I played it back and saw the mess I deleted it since it wasn't worth keeping. One example is when I was using one tuner to...

    Hopper with Sling Software Version S502 is Out

    One unfortunate side effect from S503 is when I attach an External Hard Drive and view its stored contents, the artwork images for random movies and shows has now been replaced by generic logos of the channels they were recorded on. (Ex: All episodes of Revolution now have the NBC HD logo). This...

    Hopper with Sling Software Version S502 is Out

    As reported earlier, my HWS has had S502 since May 16th (the morning it was rolled out). The living room HWS finally got updated on May 30th and it now has S503 after still having had S342 until then. My HWS also updated to S503. I'm hoping it finally fixed the issue with tuners being stuck as...

    Season number and episode number now being listed

    You did miss it. I brought it up in this thread along with some of the other immediate changes I first noticed with S502: http://www.satelliteguys.us/threads/336915-Hopper-with-Sling-Software-Version-S502-is-Out Displaying the season and episode number is fine for recordings left and stored on...

    Hopper with Sling Software Version S502 is Out

    Several issues introduced from the last update are still happening. The biggest pain for me is tuners getting stuck with '...is about to begin recording' which treats it as if it is recording when it's actually not and ties up the tuner so you cannot use it until a reset -- had it happen twice...

    This morning at 4:30 a.m. while watching live TV with no recordings active, the pop-up message asking to allow an update did appear. Since my show had just ended, I told it 'Yes' and it promptly went into standby mode and updated. As stated earlier, I've been observing the pattern of the nightly...

    It's not the worst. While it's still not ideal, I prefer this over how it was handled before. What they should have done is still have the pop-up message but have it appear only when there isn't any recording. Every weekday I'd be watching/recording shows until about 4 a.m. and it would...

    Super Joey - Weird

    I have a two Hopper setup and during one of my calls to advanced tech support, I recall one guy actually asking if I was considering adding a Super Joey. I told him that I don't have any Joeys, and also added that I don't believe it's allowed anyway. Obviously no one had informed him. This was...

    I've had S502 for a few days now but I wanted to be absolutely certain before posting this. The nightly updates have changed. The pop-up message asking for permission to allow an update (whether you're recording or not) during the hours of 1 a.m. until about 6 a.m. is completely gone. This...

    No, it doesn't matter how the Search is executed. I always perform search using the Search button on the remote, but the # button has the same results. The other HWS in the living room still has S342, so it's easy for me to compare. Once you get S502 you'll understand that what I explained is...

    Now when you make a new timer and there is a timer conflict with something previously scheduled, instead of showing the program you're trying to create the timer for that has the conflict in the pop-up message, it shows the event causing the conflict. (Ex: Created a timer event for Rio on FXX...
