Multiple-Hopper users: after you receive the new software, be sure to post here whether or not it fixes the remote Hopper playback issues caused by the last software version.

I'm making a prediction. The titles in the DVR screen will be restored but only display in Chinese.
No, that is not it. I wish I had more details on this. Also, multiple-Hopper users: sorry to get your hopes up. Maybe it will be the version after this one.

Don't ask me where I got this information from, but the new version fixes the problem with delayed SD channels freaking out in MultiView.

Didn't Microsoft write the software for those? Dish does seem to be on the same software release schedule as Microsoft lately. I started having a problem with my laptop due to a software release around the same time last month that Dish released their software. Then, right before this new Dish software version was announced, the problem with my laptop software magically was fixed. Coincidence?

And me.

They know who has two Hoppers. They could contact X of them, and some portion would sign the NDAs and do the work. For free.

But that would require some Dish personnel to collect, collate and present the data. An expense. Which someone must calculate the trade off.

At one point, Scott posted the contact info, so members here could volunteer. Perhaps they (Dish) should do that again.

If they want, they can contact us. Easy enough. PM or post a request for a few hours. Those of us that check the site frequently are no doubt serious users who must be good candidates.

But I’m sure they have their criteria and concerns.
