Hopper 3 H373 update 04/24/2024

Not sure this has been mentioned before but... On H373 I have seen the same movie recorded twice, possibly due to my own mistake, and they show up as they should on the same tile with a "2" in the lower right hand corner of the icon. But here's the change. Upon selecting the icon with a "2" in it, I do not get a list of the two shows, allowing me to delete one of them. I can only Watch or Delete. If I delete what's there, then that works, and the icon for the remaining recording shows up elsewhere. But I would like to be able to delete the recording I want, rather than leaving it up to chance.

Go ahead and delete the recording. It goes to Trash. If what you deleted is not the one you wanted to delete you can always Restore it.
 
I tried to download H373 Sunday night but it just rebooted and came back to programming - twice. I tried again last night and after the second re-try it did download and install H373 and the signal protector is there now.
 
I received H373 yesterday. One thing I noticed is a "Signal Protector " popup during weather related signal loss. The popup offers to switch to streaming instead. There is a check box to make it automatic. Works quite well so far. I haven't found a way to uncheck the box that makes it automatic.
I know my Mother has that feature with her Directv satellite.

"With our Signal Protector feature, Internet-connected Hopper receivers can stream select live TV channels* until your satellite signal comes back (or until we can get a technician there if needed.)"


 
Got the Update on my Owned H3 right after posting above. After using it for over a week with no issues, the other night it went into a Boot Loop.

Not sure if the Update had anything to do with it. But I'll get it dealt with, but not sure if I'm going to put it into service . . .

Wow it works super. I guess one could call it hybrid streaming. or hybrid satellite.

Now, if they made all the channels available for streaming and the H3 could record for delayed viewing, they would open up an entire new market.
Customers would have the power, speed and best in class user interface of the Hopper and not need satellite dishes and all stuff that goes with satellite reception.

How do you put the Hopper into streaming mode?
 

Auto Hop?

Will MAV ever come back?
