Hello, so I have owned the Dish hopper for many years, it does a good job of tuning in my ota stations. The issue like many is watching ota on the joeys. This is a problem that has been going on for way too long. I know they have a new usb tuner out but from what I read it is riddled with issues. So what is the top tuner now? I ordered a homerun hd to mess around with. I am hoping it is as good or better than my dish tuner. If any thing it has a good signal diagnostic screen.

As far as the Hopper goes, what I would do is scan in your OTA channels with the old single-tuner OTA adapter, then power off the Hopper and swap for the "new" dual tuner adapter to watch the channels. That's the newest tuner Dish offers. It can be found for about $50.

I have 2 of the HD Homerun Connect devices. They have very sensitive tuners (much more sensitive than the Dish dual "new" tuner). However, they don't interact with a Hopper.

Hope that helps.
