Hello kskok68. Dish Anywhere could be limited on the Hopper/Sling as it needs a free tuner to stream remotely to you. If only one tuner was free, only one person could stream. With 16 tuners on the Hopper 3, the only limitation is the 5 devices you can assign to the account you'll be streaming on.
When streaming over the internet, most people do not have the upstream bandwidth necessary for more than one stream at a time. For example, I have charter cable with 60Mbps down and 5Mbps up. My upstream bandwidth of 5Mbps is just enough to stream HD nicely, but there is no bandwidth left over for another stream. I think that is a major reason why Dish has not implemented more than one stream at a time.Only one stream? That's pathetic.
Nothing resides on the Joey to stream from. Everything is on the Hopper.Lol, I got a Hopper 3 a few days ago and have had my sling adaptor plugged into front port since. Just realized sling is built in and no need for the adaptor! Too bad you can plug it into a Joey and have 2 streams.
No, only one sling adapter can be used on a receiver. So, if you have a built in sling adapter like with a Hopper with Sling or Hopper 3 that's all you can have.
Yes, you can. The restriction is one stream at a time, that's all.I'm curious about this Dish Anywhere restriction? I have a 722k with the sling adapter and using Dish Anywhere from a PC, phone or tablet, I can access all the recordings on my EHD. With a H3 or HWS you can't do this?
I think KAB is wrong on that one. When I upgraded from my 722k to the HWS, I lost the ability to play back recordings from my EHD when using Dish Anywhere. As far as I know, none of the Hoppers will allow you to play back recordings from your EHD when using Dish Anywhere.Yes, you can. The restriction is one stream at a time, that's all.
