The Hopper and Joey receivers are capable of doing 4X. Dish decided to eliminate this. I really miss 4X. I loved to watch Baseball and Soccer using 4X. I wish Dish would bring it back.

I miss 4X, too. I can't tell you how often 15X is just too fast for a relatively short REW or FF--and using skip FWD or Back for such a 4X job is highly USELESS. 4X is the Goldilocks zone.

ATSC 3.0 compatibility can be done with an external module or dongle. TiVo had demoed a small dongle connected to the DVR via USB and this allowed ATSC 1.0 DVR's to receive and record ATSC 3.0. Such a capability does not require new DVR's, a relatively far less expensive fix.

Thank you. I did not know that. Puts a huge add on to the life of those DVRs.
