I would like my HWS to startup at a favorite local news station, but it won't start at the last station watched and I can't find a setting to select a fav default. In fact, it seems to want to go to a station I don't like.

There's probably an easy way to set this that I'm not seeing?

Set a daily, morning auto tune timer on your preferred station. There is no other way around. I agree, it is a frustrating H3 feature that should be kicked to the curb.

Is that the one where if you leave the channel on for more than 30 seconds, they charge it to your room bill?

This feature would drive my sister nuts, so I convinced her to downgrade from the original Hopper to a ViP612. This also saved her a couple of dollars per month, going from a grandfathered $12 per month Hopper DVR fee to the newly grandfathered $10 per month ViP DVR fee. I got her switched right before the deadline to avoid the increase to the ViP DVR fee.

So, all in all, it was an upgrade. :)

Which does not work consistently.

It works fine for me. H3 and (3) Joey's all set up to work that way. Every time I turn the TV's back on they each tune to the last channel we were watching on that particular TV.

Then you H3 and Joeys are better than mine.
