It's slower on the Hopper 2 so it is sure to be bad on the Hopper 1. We upgraded from a H1 to a H2 (and later, to an H3) and the performance of the H2 was certainly noticeable over the H1.Crap, I "upgraded" my Hopper (original) 2 days ago, what a mistake!
...but this is slow!
The original Joey was damn near worthless the day it was released!original Joey more or less worthless
Honestly...if you only have a single Hopper, whether you only need 3 tuners or not, you'll wish you had upgraded sooner once you get the H3! It is SO much faster in operation than the original Hopper ever was, regardless of UI.Hate to give in and get the h3, but looks like that's what Dish is forcing us that were happy with 3 tuners to do.
Suddenlink or DirecTV, maybe just cut the cord and save $100+ per month.or else what?
This is exactly the way that I feel. Why do I want to be force fed an "upgrade" that is worse than what I have? It makes no sense for the customer. We continue to have increased prices & fees, yet channels disappear & never replaced or replaced with 1960's games shows. I don't want to watch a square boxed picture on my tv. I want a quality picture. If Dish can't or won't understand this, then I can switch to another provider & become another loss for themSuddenlink or DirecTV, maybe just cut the cord and save $100+ per month.
If Dish thinks so little of its customers as to foist a crappy OS off on us when we had a decent one - a 14 year customer is gone.
I don't want a slower response, I don't want my hoppers to no longer be able to record for each other, if the new OS is not an improvement, I already have 3 TiVos with cable card capability so I can go cable or I can go DirecTV or I can use them OTA.
In that case, the contract would be extended by a couple months (if Dish requires a contract for the equipment upgrade) but the guaranteed price would still run out when it was originally scheduled to. At least, that is the way I understand it.So I guess the price guarantee does move with the contract... I've only been on 2 yr price for a couple months.
