If he would try to take your 40.0 remote, tell him you bought it to replace the original that went bad. You might want to keep using it over the 52.I'd use an EHD. Hopper to Hopper transfers, if they work at all, might take days. The installer isn't going to do that. Make sure to keep your 40 remote or transfer your timers before it goes away.
Get an external hard drive and transfer all your recordings over to it well in advance to the tech visit. He won't wait for transfers to finish. Some may leave the old receiver for you to finish transfers but I wouldn't count on it.Currently have Hopper with Sling, wanting to upgrade to new Hopper 3. Will the install tech be able to copy my recording to the new H3 while he is here, or will I need to use an external had for this?
I have an external HD I use on my laptop, if I use that to connect to my hopper w/sling and transfer my recording to it, the copy to my new hopper 3, will I then be able to take it back to my laptop, format it, and continue to use it in my laptop as an external drive there?
That's OK, I can live with that. There's really only one long list that I don't want to have to create on the new Hopper if I don't need to.BTW, the Favorites lists are saved, but not their names. At least, that's what happened when I replaced my failing HWS with a replacement. Did it twice and same thing happened both times.
I recently returned a bad Hopper. The Tech in replacement receivers, said Dish had a way to transfer your recordings . I got the impression he was not supposed to talk about it?Currently have Hopper with Sling, wanting to upgrade to new Hopper 3. Will the install tech be able to copy my recording to the new H3 while he is here, or will I need to use an external had for this?
