I started a thread related to this a few months ago. Often, when I go to Netflix, I will get the big Logo on the screen for several seconds, then my TV tells me the HDMI signal has been lost. Remembering what Bobby told me then, I disconnected then reconnected the Hopper HDMI cable and everything goes back to normal. A bit ago, following that, I selected a movie and watched the percentage circle increase, get to 99%, then start back to 0. After a few rounds of that, the No HDMI signal came back on, requiring playing with the cable again. It's a fairly new cable, so I doubt it's the problem. So far, my history with H3 Netflix has been frustrating. I just go back to my Roku. Any ideas? Also, does the H3 Netflix interface show groups of 4K shows on the main menu like on Roku?. I could not find anything.

I actually use my Roku or Vizio app only to watch Netflix simply because the H3 Netflix app is stereo only unless you use optical. I hate that! ;)

I stopped using it as well I use it on my PS4 and my son uses it on his Xbox One in his room as the Netflix app on the Joey even has problems little play about three episodes of whatever show he's watching and then it just stops and doesn't work anymore you have to restart the Joey to get Netflix to work again

Haha ! Remember all of the excitement about how great it was that Netflix was now available on the Hopper ? Granted, I know it's ideal for many people. We don't use it either.... We use our Roku.
Fire Stick access never hiccups like the Dish app often does.

  1. Turn on Fire Stick
  2. Open the Amazon App Store
  3. Search "dish"
  4. Select "Dish Anywhere" app
  5. Install
Give that a try....
Thanks. Fire Stick due today. Didn't know if there was a a complicated procedure or not. Thanks again.

I can't find a place to enter my activation code. If I enter dishanywhere.com/activate, it never takes me anywhere to enter the code .

that's the address it gives me but it doesn't work. Do I have to do some exotic sideload crap?

Yes, that's pretty normal. You typically go to a simple address, like "dishanywhere.com/activate", which will re-direct you to that page which handles the actual authentication part.
