If their are any original Hopper 1 users (AKA H2K) out their who plan on keeping their Hopper 1 and would like to help improve the software by being a tester please reply here.

I will be making a list of people interested and sending it to DISH later next week. YOU WILL NOT GET ANY REPLIES OR MESSAGES FROM ME UNTIL THEN SO PLEASE DON'T PM ME EVERY DAY ASKING WHAT'S GOING ON. :)

(UPDATE - I have a small amount of testing spaces open for Hopper 2 (Hopper with Sling) as well so when replying please let me know what kind of Hopper you have.)

Thanks! :)
I’ll be a tester for the HWS. I love beta testing.

The "Home Media" feature works fine until we play a file from our network server. The movie or show plays in a tiny box in the upper right of the screen (like a picture-in-picture). This feature worked fine until the 'upgrade'. This feature is now useless.
I have the exact issue. After the update, when my daughters wanted to watch pre-recorded animation movies, they were disappointed to see this bug. It's been two weeks or so without being able to watch their recordings.

By the way, that small box is similar to the size of the box that appears when switch from Live TV to menu or DVR. It seems like in the Home Media it forgets to resize the screen after starting the video, etc. It would be great if there is a way to go to Home Media directly, bypassing the Menu where it makes the screen small. I have a feeling it might work then, but I could be wrong.

I hope Dish fixes this mess soon... I'm eyeing the H3 to address the lag introduced in this update. Ridiculous.
