That would just make it super inconvenient for me though. I've already told her the "rules" where she's not allowed to delete anything but she still does it. I made a new rule where she's not allowed to record anything, but she'll still do that as well. Thing is, she denies doing it but I was sitting there when she deleted one of my movies. She did it right in front of me. I said "LOOK YOU JUST DELETED MY MOVIE!" and she even denied it right then and there. It's not that she is doing it on purpose, she's just very careless with things. I am afraid to show her how to edit a DVR event. She will wind up deleting my upcoming recordings and such. It's like the more things I show her, the more things she messes up.Play hardball then. Set a passcode that only you know then go in the controls and set everything to the lowest settings so it requires a password to go to every channel. When you want to watch then you turn it off for yourself and THEY can watch YOUR shows with you. Tell them you'll unlock the gates to the TV once they agree to not do what you're telling them not to.
I'm obviously being sarcastic...but maybe you could try that for a couple of days?! Unless you wouldn't get a good night's sleep on the couch.
Good luck with all that!
<For the new and reruns setting, while I sat down with my wife and showed her the do's and don't's on the new DVRs as we got them (and she's great at it now), there are times where she rushes or the Hopper freaks out and the record option gets set to new and reruns by mistake, which is a pain.>
Didn't think two h3's were an option that dish would activate yet...This is why we are getting two of the Hopper 3's at my house. I don't want to scroll through endless episodes of "The Bachelor" and I don't want my wife and daughter "accidentally" deleting my stuff to make room for their crap. This is how we keep a happy family. Cheaper than divorce!
They will when you order two different accounts at the same address....
I wish we could get some kind of news for the new DPH42 switch so we can get more than one Hopper 3 on the same account. Has anyone heard anything at all other than by the end of the year?...and they cannot both be on the same network. Have to be independent of each other so no sharing (viewing) of recordings from one H3 to the other. Why a two account system may just be a good (albeit more expensive) option for the ones with a not-so-better half manning the remote!
I would have to get rid of the wife before paying for 2 accounts to get (2) hopper 3's....and they cannot both be on the same network. Have to be independent of each other so no sharing (viewing) of recordings from one H3 to the other.
