lparsons21, how do you like your Hopper w/Sling? I see you have both versions. Do you see much improvement in the new version?
I love it! Very speedy and it has settled down over a few days and I have very few issues with it. A little pixelation and skipping in VOD downloads, but not too bad. Other functions just fly, and that video! Absolutely the best PQ I've ever seen from Dish and every bit as good as the best that Direct is doing these days.
I don't use the 'old' Hopper as that is in my son's room, but the very few times I fiddled with it, it was a bit slower in operation but very much useable and faster than D* equipment by far.
For info, I have just recently returned to Dish, so I didn't have an original Hopper until this install.
