Scott posted this in a thread about programming, which you wouldn't have seen if you don't read unrelated threads like that, so I'm putting this here about the upcoming dual tuner OTA adapter for the Hopper systems and Wally.

Dual Tuner OTA Tuner for the Hopper and Wally coming in February. :)

My thought is that a dual tuner OTA will be much appreciated. but as I said in the other thread...

Dual Tuner OTA device coming in February. Dual tuner function expected May 2017. I'm going to call B.S. on this, right here right now.

I hope Dish breaks from their typical vaporware of features on their equipment we've all seen before, coming soooooooooooon. (cough cough Joey 4k Netflix)

I hope DISH comes through with a winner and provides the full functionality without delays. Come on, do it for the kids.

My original Hopper OTA adapter stopped working a few months ago so I'm looking forward to getting this dual tuner and its functionality..

I look forward to specs and reviews. I'd like to know if it's more sensitive, maybe have better multipath rejection. I have no problems with mine, but I recall others wanting stronger stuff.

I guess they didn't expect to run out of the old tuners as fast as they did, so they have a new USB tuner that work like the old tuner, however the drivers (from the guys that actually make the USB tuner) won't be available until a later date.

That's my guess anyways...

And if it were me, it wouldn't surprise me to see the dual tuner support before May. ;)

the device will be available in Feb, but it won't have dual-tuners until May?
With either date, Dish should have just said "Available soon" vs putting a month (and year) on it. On Feb 1, we'll have posters asking "Where is it ? Where is it ? Dish said February and it's 12:01am on Feb 1. Where is it ?". Of course, before that, we'll have a countdown, reminding Dish of how many days they have left.
