Is there any other way to isolate joeys to be independent, I had the impression that each joey would be it's own entity. We have a mother in law suite and do not like that the residents have access to everything we are doing watching and recording.The Joeys were able to access the TV activity screen on other Hopper systems as well. My only though is maybe set up locks at the Joeys
This brings me to the thing I have been asking Dish to provide for many years: the ability to at least install a SEPARATE DVR like a Wally on our account for that person we DO NOT want on our Hopper network
Well, someone has to ask. Why are you so paranoid/restrictive about your Mother-In-Law's access?I originally spoke with dish several times and I told them my situation,they never explained that everyone would have access to everyone else's viewing as well as recordings. I asked if each joey was attached to each tv and never dreamed we'd all be interconnected. I explained we had as mother In law suite attached to out home and we had 6 tvs. One of the customer service rep said we would probably want 2 hoppers and 4 joeys. The installer called before he came out and said it would work better to have 1 hopper and 5 joeys. Each time I called them I was told something different regarding how It could be set up. WStill not knowing about the interconnection situation I went along with it. So now I'm stuck with it unless someone can come up with a solution.
For one reason if my husband would watch the Simpsons for example that would be something they would look down on so I constantly feel like i have to be conscience of everything that might pop up on the tv activity which mean I have to make sure we don't leave the tuners on certain channel where something comes up on the activity even if we aren't actually watching it. I didn't think I would have to worry about those types of things when I signed up for this. That would be the reason.Well, someone has to ask.
