After you selected the tool button, did you not touch the remote or Hopper 3 till completion. Takes a long time.
Nope, I sat patiently while the large warning screen with a progress gauge downloaded with a warning not to touch. It did the usual update then a small warning screen came on telling me apx. 5" to find a signal. Then it went to a station I was watching.

Wasn't it already 1080? I cannot tell if it is sharper or not. Looks the same, maybe a little clearer?

It was 720 before this update. When you look at it side by side with the old version the difference in clarity is very, very noticeable.

I am confused. The Hopper3 had a setting for Video Resolution. I thought that if you selected 4K, 1080p, or 1080i, that the normal resolution was 1080i except for a few VOD that was 1080p, or the 4K content on Demand or channel 540. If you selected 720p Dish output everything in 720p.

Are you saying that the output changed to 720p when viewing the guide? I don’t believe that.

I do agree that the guide does look sharper with U527 but the resolution according to my TV display was always 1080i except when watching 4K Dish content.

I was told by somebody who knows at DISH that the guide was in 720 and now it's in 1080.

I see a much, much clearer display on the guide and all the menus. The DVR tiles look spectacular.

Beyond that, you can make whatever you want out of it. :)
