This doggone new software update to my Hopper is really annoying. The menu is very slow, and connecting to the Hopper in the kitchen to play DVR recordings takes 20 seconds before it will play. The joey in the bedroom is now about worthless. I'm out of contract and am not in the mood to get the Hopper 3 and sign another 2 year contract. My wife is not happy at all. I wonder if there are any deals to be had by upgrading. If not, I might just have to go back to our local cable provider.
