So... I'm on the Wally, is this so-called dual tuner for OTA ever going to work? Haven't heard much the past months and it was "promised" in May.

It has been available for months, Wally is only a single tuner so far, and they all seem to run hot.

My Joey 1 runs so hot I have a small computer case fan blowing on it all the time, if not - it is to hot to touch.

And this is supposed to be normal?

Can’t imagine so. If Charlie’s OTA dongle burns my house down, I’ll post my lawsuit filing here ;)

Yep, it's normal. Keep in mind that Dish did not sell you that OTA dongle. It's not Charlie's dongle, so to speak. Next, 127F is not so hot as to cause a fire. Think about it, as ChadT41 mentioned a while back on this issue, it gets really hot in the sun all over the country and you don't get spontaneous combustion.

It doesn’t get to 127 very often. 127 F On a computer CPU and goodby CPU eventually

I would never have expected this much interest and discussion on here about Charlie's "dongle" o_O
Which, of course, is alternative facts. Charlie didn't sell it although it just happens to work on some of his equipment...

I knew that and enjoyed your humor. I just wanted to ensure that people understand that they bought something that Dish didn't sell, or even support...
I thought I saw the Dual OTA Adapter one time in the on line mydish Order from Store section.
