You have company, OTA isn't faring any better with the HWS either. It was very stable until the CUI.OTA recordings are breaking up just like before U500 and U501 which were fine. Now recorded video is tearing and blocking again making them unwatchable. I wonder why they keep tampering with code that works perfectly.
I have Dual OTA Adapters attached to both of my Hopper 3s and have no OTA issues on my H3s, two 4KJs, and two WJs.Count me as another person that has problems with OTA channels since U502 has come to my 2 hopper 3 receivers. This occurs on my 2 hopper 3 receivers and my Joey 2. I am using the original single tuner dongle.
Are you sure this to be the case? I believe the one you're thinking of, haven't been made in years:Channel master dvrs are made by Echostar.
How do you like them so far? What did you use for storage?I did.
A couple of brand new Channel Master DVR+ units!
The current Channel Master DVrs have been made by Echostar since about 2013.Are you sure this to be the case? I believe the one you're thinking of, haven't been made in years:
Antenna DVR: Analog HD Antenna DVR Recorder CM7000PAL - Channel Master Store
But it IS now 2017 & CM has made 2 more DVR's since they stopped making the one I posted - the CM7400 & the CM7500 - google them for yourself.The current Channel Master DVrs have been made by Echostar since about 2013.
It's not the OTA module, it's the U502 software. I proved it by duplicating the problem using old and new OTA adapters. I've found that the problem is most prevalent on receivers who's receiver ID begins with R191. I'd bet your's does too.My issue with U502 is that my OTA locals are erased every night since I got that software update on 8/30/17. I have to rescan for OTA channels daily, and it works fine until the overnight restart. I'm not having the glitches or audio drops that some have described. Everyone from Dish that I talk to seems to think it is the OTA module. I have an original module dating back to the first Hopper. I haven't had one problem with it until U502. I tried switching USB ports but that didn't make any difference. Any suggestions? This is becoming a pain
