Hi my mom is having Dish installed right now. I knew she was not going to get a Hopper 3 but I thought that the other option was Hopper with Sling. The Hopper that was delivered is called HOPPER REMAN STANDALONE. She will never use the Sling feature so I don't mind that it is missing but I want to make sure that the internals are modern and it will perform well over the next couple of years. Let me know what to expect. Thanks

Remanufactured.

I would not accept a H1, if that's what it is. Old and slow.

Find out for sure which model.

Look at the white label on the back of the receiver. It will give the model.

Yeah, insist on a newer model. The H1 refurb may be OK as far as reliability, but performance will be laggy. Now is when you have leverage to get what you want.

Well, I guess in that case, she doesn't know any different (as in, no previous Hopper experience). Giving NEW customers remanufactured, Hopper 1 units ? Ouch...

Makes you wonder if an installer was trying to take advantage of a situation to clear some old stock. o_O

In either event, It's good the OP was around to look out for her!

She ordered the Flex Pack + Locals so they probably give Hopper 1 to keep costs down.The phone rep said that the fee for the Hopper 1 had been credited back before we were charged for the HWS. Hopeful that it will all show up correctly on the next bill. :)
