It already has auto tune as an option in the timer settings.
Isn't it interesting how many of the suggestions in these posts are things we USED to have on Dish DVRs, some of them up to and including on the H3, but were all removed in the name of "upgrades".
My wish list would be:
Return of 4X Trick Play
Decent Guide Data. I mean...I remember back to a time where episodes would all record as scheduled, would have accurate episode information, episode numbers would be attached correctly, season numbers would be attached correctly, and DVR folder would actually list said recordings in proper order based on those episode numbers. Wow...what a time that was to be alive.
Yeah...but you have to press "record" and then go into the timers page to change it to auto-tune. (or is there an easier way I am unaware of?)
No easier way that I know of but I've never looked because that way is pretty easy already.
I agree. It may be the very tip-top of 1st world problems (after the missing Red Light, that is.)
For OTA, it would be nice to be able to add a channel to the list of already scanned channels. Some of us get OTA signals from different directions, making it impossible to scan in all the channels at once. (We have been waiting/hoping for this for years).
I also wish for 4X fast forward.
I agree on the OTA thing.
I use a rotor to move my antenna and have to rescan every time I move it.

GIVE US BACK OUR 4X FAST FORWARD!!
If Hopper 3 had all the features on the wish list it would be so bogged down it would be unusable.
People would be saying it is a POS instead of the Boss Daddy of all DVRs.
Like the TIVO Bolt a fast play function with sound. This could allow watching an hour show in 20 or 30 minutes or less if you could also auto skip commercials.
1. A built in OTA tuner for the 4 primetime networks so we can get Primetime to work with the OTA antenna and save the $12 and the carriage disputes.
2. A selectable Primetime for non network channels . Could work like multichannel with auto recording.
3. Multilevel file management for internal and external drives very similar to computer file management.
4. 4x fast foreword.
5. Amazon Prime App.
6. Multiple H3s through Dish without buying the 2nd H3.
Some of you may know that DISHanywhere (DA) began to change its technology in late August 2019, starting with dishanywhere.com. Because of that...
1. Let the Hopper 3 stream its contents for DISHanywhere over the local home network to DA devices in the home, without passing the stream up to and down from to the Internet. (Just from the Hopper, through the home router/switch, over to the DA device.)
It used to do that just fine. The whole point of having satellite television is that you don't need a fast broadband connection. If you had a fast broadband connection, you would have switched to streaming television, like everyone else.
Did that change? Really?
Yes, it did, around Aug 25th. A member in the DISH communities forum has satellite Internet access which is metered, so he has the ability to watch the network activity through his home router. He knew from before August that dishanywhere.com was initially reached through the Web site, but as soon as streaming started, the activity stayed only on the local network between the Hopper and computer/tablet/phone. (That's how it worked for me, too, getting about 8Mbps streaming on a wirelessly connected PC.)
After the change, he can see that the entire dishanywhere.com stream went from the Hopper up to the Internet then back down again to his home devices. (That's what I suspected on my home network too.) In his first report, he said that the DISHanywhere apps on his iOS and Android devices still worked the old way, with the stream staying strictly on the home network.
In a later report, I think he said the iOS and Android apps had been upgraded, and now they also sent the entire stream up and down. But his Amazon Fire tablet still worked the old way, so I was preparing to buy a new Fire 10 as soon as they are released. But if DISH "upgrades" the Fire app too, then my money on the Fire would be wasted, and my reliance on DISHanywhere undeniably broken.
Just ran a test with DA watching ESPN for 5 minutes with Chrome browser on my PC. My traffic status on my router only showed 2 MB of data traffic in a 5 minute interval, so I'm calling the claim that DA traffic goes through the internet bogus.
Followed up with a high school volleyball match from a radio station's streaming TV that was through the internet and the traffic was jumping 10MB at least every 10 second interval.
I'd like to see them move to a chassis the size of the Hopper Duo. Newer M.2 SSD SATA drives would reduce the need for HD space for older HDD Drives, for one thing. And that includes the removable power chords
I’d hate to see them use SSDs for video. We would not see any speed increase and I think they’d be shorter lived.

Not so much with the M.2 dives.
This is a drive that’s also built to last, with the 1TB model of the Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Pro M.2 having a guaranteed lifespan of at least 800TB, while the 2TB is even longer at 1.2PB (which is 1200TB). It has a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 1.5 million hours, while a warranty of 5 years also backs up the drive. - Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Pro M.2 review | TechRadar
HDDs do the job cheaper.
