I was wondering if anyone knew...if you use dish anywhere app (with HWS) in your home on the wireless network that the hopper is on, will it count as a double whammy on bandwidth? i.e. upload show, then download show? Or will it just use the home network. I think when you actually download a show via the app, it uses the local network as I guess you can only do that from the network the Hopper is on. I have limited bandwidth and was wondering how this would affect my usage. Thanks.

No double whammy. There is some minimal handshaking going on to/from Dish servers. But then the video data stream will traverse your LAN from Hopper to... Whatever you have that can handle it. I've seen streams that top 8Mbps.
