Yes. That is the correct work-around for channel scans at this time. Once all desired channels are scanned in by the old single tuner dongle, the receiver can be unplugged, replaced with the dual dongle and then you're good to go.I need to replace the Air TV dongle with the original Dish one channel dongle and scan yet again. With that dongle, I always get all 37 available channels. Every time.
AutoHop was one of the big features of the Hopper. Now, they have a "Hopper" (Hopper Duo) that does not include AutoHop at all, so it must not be a very important feature for a Hopper anymore.OK, watched an AutoHop show on 12.1 so AutoHop works on OTA with locals. Anyone without locals, does AutoHop work? I'd say my OTA is probably getting the info from my local subscription but AutoHop is one of the big features of the Hopper so you never know.
I 'heard' that they're going to start calling it the Smart DVR instead of the Hopper Duo. We'll see.AutoHop was one of the big features of the Hopper. Now, they have a "Hopper" (Hopper Duo) that does not include AutoHop at all, so it must not be a very important feature for a Hopper anymore.
As far as I know, that is what they have been calling it all along, in the advertising fliers I see in the junk mail. I don't think I have ever actually seen it advertised as a Hopper Duo.I 'heard' that they're going to start calling it the Smart DVR instead of the Hopper Duo. We'll see.
I'd say that the picture quality depended greatly on whether you were a Steeler fan or not. I can't imagine that the game looked good at any resolution to a Panther fan. What a slaughter.I too thought the OTA of the Steelers-Panthers game looked better even on my 722, but that could have just been the outcome.
So should we hope for more retrans disputes so Dish finally gets serious about making a usable OTA tuner?
Well, I really hate to say I told you so...Judging by recent uplink reports, the next big one may be with Tegna. Dish changed the OTA guide mapping for those stations to make them independent streams from the guide data for the satellite-delivered versions. That is usually a sign that Dish is preparing for a dispute. If I am right, this would impact my market, since WKYC (NBC) is one of the stations on that list.
