    Transfer Hopper 3 sling recordings

    Come on. They have a clear benefit, for those that are selling them. They are more profitable.

    Transfer Hopper 3 sling recordings

    Those just came up after a quick search. The cheaper one will only do SD video. The more expensive one will possibly not work for you due to DRM (it is HDMI). This one will record component video to USB drives. Note that you will need a component video cable, and an audio cable. View...

    Transfer Hopper 3 sling recordings

    PCs and Laptops just don't come with HDMI inputs. If you didn't buy something specifically to do this, then you don't have it. If you connect a recorder via HDMI to the hopper, yes it will more or less know what it is, and it will not output any video that has DRM restrictions against being...

    Transfer Hopper 3 sling recordings

    I would strongly suspect that your Dell has an HDMI out, and not an HDMI in.

    why won't Dish fix their idiotic guide issues?

    I think that the last time they changed guide providers we had to recreate all or most of our timers to get it to work again.

    Yes, I don't see any video inputs.

    Transfer Hopper 3 sling recordings

    No, sorry, not even that. It is a VHS video cassette recorder combined with a DVD player. It can not record to DVD, only to cassette tape. If you have any VHS tapes, you could record on those, at low resolution.

    Composite (one video RCA), or Component (three video RCAs)?

    Unusual H3 Problem

    I hope that does work out for you. I would have rather had that than a replacement H3. Anyway, the call went easier than I thought, and a no-charge replacement is supposed to arrive today. They also offered that I had some discounts available. I said that I would call back about those in a...

    why won't Dish fix their idiotic guide issues?

    I noticed last night that 60 minutes had the original air date listed as 1968.

    Well, scratch off that option then.

    Unusual H3 Problem

    No, it's the principle here. I'd sooner buy a new H3 (at least that way I would get a new one, not refurbished). Would I save anything on my monthly bill if I did (1 H3 and 1 J3)? If so, maybe I could justify that. Otherwise, they replace it at no charge, or it's time to jump ship.

    Unusual H3 Problem

    Well, this is great news. I assume that this number is normal business hours only? If so, I can try it Friday. Thanks again.

    Unusual H3 Problem

    So, I have a new discovery. I did think to try a streaming channel, and it was the same (blank screen). Also, I decided to try a streaming app from the H3 (I always use a Firestick instead). I tried YouTube on the H3, and that did play. Much to my surprise, after I exited the YouTube app...

    Unusual H3 Problem

    1. Yes, I am. It only lists 61 and 72. There is no third space. I think that this has been true since install, not just lately. Still, I did try to do the equivalent of check switch, but it crashes and resets before finishing, so I couldn't save any new results anyway. 2. No, and that is a...

    Unusual H3 Problem

    As an EE, I can assure you that it is not the cable. While I really believe that it must be the H3 itself, I am willing to concede the 1% or less chance that it is the dish or the node. (I'm sure stranger things have happened.) However, I am not on the protect plan. I have never had a rate...

    Unusual H3 Problem

    I respect that thought, but please be aware of this: It all works perfectly from the Joey. The problem when it happens on the hopper is every channel, even the OTA ones, and every video. At the same time, I can go upstairs to the Joey and every channel plays from it, as do the recordings. No...

    Unusual H3 Problem

    I have a very unusual H3 problem that started a few weeks ago. It quickly went from once every day or two to now being all the time. I changed nothing about my setup before or during the problem. Setup: Dish Hopper 3 to Onkyo TX-NR515 surround sound to Vizio HD TV via HDMI. Using Harmony hub...
