    Well I just ran into Charlie and he tells me he will have some interesting things for SatelliteGuys in about 6 months.

    He didn’t elaborate, so I am as interested as you are as to what it can be.

    I will be meeting again with Charlie tomorrow.

    Just had a nice chat with DISH CEO Erik Carlson and hopefully we get DIRT back the way it was.

    I explained how DIRT uses to work and how helpful they were. And he said he would look into it.

    If we could get DIRT back the way it was before then this trip was totally worth it.

    Two questions on Google Assistant on the Hopper3.
    1) Will the Hopper3 Google Assistant be able to control my Lutron Caseta lights like the Google Assistant Speaker in my Living Room does?
    2) Will the voice input on the 54 remote work with the Hopper3 Google Assistant or will I be forced to buy another remote? My hope is that the only difference with the new remote is the button label.

    I have Alexa throughout my house but I only have Google Assistant in the Living Room. Lutron Caseta switches throughout my house work with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. If the Hopper3 Google Assistant works with the 54 remote it would give me yet another way to control my 17 lights throughout my house.

    1) yes that should work.

    2) your remote will work fine. The new remote is the same it just has a google logo painted on it.

    They had the front row reserved this morning... so I am in the second row... but that's ok. Can't wait for thing to start!

    The music is loud and they are trying to wake us up after an awesome street part last night.

    Good morning (or good afternoon) depending where you are!

    The folks from DISH noticed I was sitting a little to far off to the side to get food pictures so they reserved me a seat in the second row center where I can get better pics.

    What hospitality! Thank you DISH!
