I have a wing dish to get 129. Will my configuration be able to upgrade?
I'd like to see the wiring diagram for multiple dishes with an H3 setup. I've been thinking about bringing my wing dish back as rain fade has been bad lately on my single dish.

Awesome. I assume just 1, as the new will take care of 110 and 119, or could you in theory have 3? And also assume the wing has to have the new lnb as well?

Hello all, long time lurker and dish technician here. The hopper 3 will require the dish pro hybrid lnb on a 1000.2 dish. Eastern and western arcs are currently being deployed and BOTH have ports for a wing dish. It's a single line system for the hopper family. That being said, one line for one hopper with up to 3 joeys or two lines for two hoppers and joeys. If you have a hws with a sj it's now a 2 line system as well. As far as the hopper 3 goes, it's the same installation process as the previous hoppers on the dph system. As for a wireless 4k Joey, I haven't heard anything down the pipework yet. Personally I'm doubtful since wireless joeys are unreliable with signal strength depending on layout and placement of the access point.

Do we know yet what wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3?
I think this is the maximum for a Hopper 3 & wired Joeys:

I am assuming that there is absolutely no way to use three separate dishes with this system for 110,119 and 129?

I hope that you are incorrect about the 4k wireless joey. I presently have a wireless joey & have not had any problems

From my understanding all current joeys will support 4K resolution when connected to the hopper 3. The 4K Joey will be used to provide UHD to a single tv using the existing H2k and HWS.
