I had to unplug my super joey and plug in back in last night to get it to reconnect after the update. So naturally I checked the hopper to see if it updated and saw u239 showed up yesterday afternoon. Haven’t noticed any changes so far.

U119 for the original hopper fixed my external hard drive. Recordings now play on the first try.

did a Rescan and now everything is slowed down to a crawl. It finds the channels but when you tune to them, it causes a reboot.
Big mess. I am using the older model OTA adapter that has not exhibited any of these problems before. For all intents and purposes, OTA through dish Hopper w/sling is no more. Any suggestions?

I opened the upgrade app, but when I pushed the key, the HWS went dark and after two minutes went to starting up mode three times, but when I clicked on the version it still shows U238. Oh well, I guess sooner or later Dish will download it, I just wonder why they added the self upgrade button?

Yea, forget about ANY OTA thru E* at all & get an OTA Tivo Roamio w/Lifetime...new ones are now under $400, come with 1 TB HDD's, have NO ongoing monthly fee, do 4 recordings at once & normally give you guide data for ALL your OTA channels. You can also find used or refurbed ones on Ebay for even less...I got mine for under $300 a couple year's ago & really like them.

PLUS, if you ever decide to cut the (satellite) TV cord, you'll be all set to still DVR local channels. ;)

it takes about 30 minutes to do the upgrade. You can't touch any button or it stops. Try again and leave it alone . It should work.

Upgrade to a dual tuner ota dongle and a Hopper 3 .
Or for a slightly cheaper option, switch to a Wally and an external hard drive, and use the dual tuner OTA dongle. :)

I also have U239 and it is painfully slow........ Also the "ready to scan for ota stations" pops up randomly throughout the day. :oldmad
