I think the Joey limit per Hopper 3 is six or least it was was six. My daughter in Texas has one Hopper 3 and six Joeys. She wanted another Joey but DISH said no. So I got her a Firestick for the eight TV and she uses DISH Anywhere on it.
As far as I know...
If you had a 7th Joey that is a total of eight TVs supported counting the Hopper. I am pretty sure the limit per Hopper 3 is six Joeys, leased and/or purchased. Firestick with DISH Anywhere will work for the eight TV. See my post #2,Last I knew, it was the following:
B. Dish will subsidize up to 6 Joeys with a H3, but a single H3 is capable of supporting up to 7 TV's for a unique viewing experience, but the subscriber has to pay for that 7th Joey if they want one at the 7th TV.
Maybe future 4KJ will be out soon. I hope it has those features and HDR too.I only have 1-H3 but I'm tempted to get another just for the Multi-View/PIP Feature. What are the odds that the feature will be rolled out on a 4KJ in the future?
I have two Hopper 3s and four Joeys and use a RF modulator for my other six TV locations.Wow, I have 1 Hopper 3 on my big tv and have two other tvs hooked up thru HDMI cables thru an AV receiver with an HDMI splitter on my 2nd HDMI output. I only watch the same programs when I am in the other two rooms with tvs, so I do not need a Joey. Plus I only get the Welcome Pack and Prime Video streaming, which gives me more than I care to watch. Plus other than football, I never watch anything live, but record everything that I care to watch. I cannot imagine needing 2 Hopper3 and six joeys.
LOL. No motel however it feels like one sometimes. Four bedroom home and I do have TVs at some different locations so it all adds up. The different locations I have are the kitchen, garage, loft, backyard deck, dinning room that turned into my wife's Zoom room, and two in the basement,What are you running, a motel?
Many of those members (maybe all of them) purchased their second Hopper 3 from some place other than directly from Dish, such as Solid Signal. There are fewer restrictions if you do it that way. If you absolutely must purchase your second Hopper 3 directly from Dish, just add the required number of Joeys long enough to get that Hopper 3 installed and activated. Then, you can turn around and deactivate the unneeded Joeys, and return those to Dish.I called Dish the other day to inquire about adding a 2nd Hopper 3. I currently have 1 Hopper 3, 1 4K Joey and 3 wireless Joeys. When I got to the right department, I was told that I would have to have a total of 6 Joey type receivers befor they would allow me to purchase and add the 2nd Hopper 3. I see a lot of members here with less than 6 Joeys on their account. What gives?

jerryez, charlesrshell’s Avatar is his home’s TV coax distribution panel, if I recall correctly. There may be a better photo of it in this Forum. I bow in awe to this setup…LOL.
