So the other day I went on Amazon and searched for dish single OTA tuner. One popped up so I ordered it. My thoughts were if using a USB extension didn't solve my dual tuner ota issue with losing total signal and having to reboot the hopper than I was gonna just go back to a single OTA tuner(I had already sold my original single on eBay). The box arrived and what I got wasn't a single tuner but a new dual ota tuner in dish packaging. I didn't remember my first one coming in dish packaging. So at first I was a little upset that Amazon shows a picture of the old single tuner and what I got was a dual. Than I thought why not just try this new dual tuner out. I hooked it up powered down the hopper. It took a little longer than usual to boot up. Well the new one is working just fine. Maybe I had a faulty one? Maybe heat damaged it? I don't know but it's been running since 3 this afternoon and haven't had any channel drop out or had to do any reboot.
