Do we know yet what wiring changes will be required for Hopper 3?
You need the new Hybrid LNB, and a Single Node Hub.
Very Very simple.
I have a wing dish to get 129. Will my configuration be able to upgrade?
If you currently have an Eastern Arc 1000.4 I believe it will require a dish replacement to a 1000.2 with the new DPH to get the H3?
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.
There is a connector on the LNB for a wing dish connection.
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?
Me too. Also forgot to mention I have a DP33, so would my configuration still be upgradable?
Presently have 2 HWS & 1 wireless joey........what changes would I need for the Hopper 3 & wireless 4k joey?
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.
I think this is the maximum for a Hopper 3 & wired Joeys:
Correct. Honestly mind blowing that we will be able to get a 16 tuner whole home HD DVD system quite soon.
Your diagrams are excellent!
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
That would be a good assumption, until they come out with a Hybrid compatible switch.
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.
