Why release it if it's not up to par. Why release things but they are not functional only to have to send updates to activate them (ethernet transfer of recordings from one hopper to another?)
I would wait. The 4k Joey is much faster than the Joey 2.0. This situation, although annoying, is pretty standard nowadays. Whether it's a cell phone or a coffee machine. The company can't win. Either way, people complain cause it's not released yet or people complain cause it's released and doesn't work correctly. I agree that everything should be released in a timely manner with limited bugs, but that just ain't gonna happen,.Return the 4k Joey and get a Joey 2.0 or wait? Just can't believe they'd release it without having the feature.
me too!!! I had 2 HWSs and each had PIP . I went to an H3 and 4k Joey to duplicate the PIP ability. I use PIP all the time to watch sports. So now I wait for 4K Joey PIP and the H3's promised settable 4HD multiview screen. I hope it will not be like the wait for the never happening full 2 Hopper integration.The only reason I got the 4K Joey is for the PIP. So I guess I'll gripe about that.
What works differently on the WJ and the 2.0?I don't think Dish is being upfront with people when they push products without full functions. Both Netflix and Amazon have 4k content. Isn't that what the 4k Joey is supposed to do? My 'other half' is so far beyond being technically adept at anything, she just found out what Bluetooth is. Still doesn't know how to set it up on anything.. Thought it was a dental disease.
I get so irritated w/ Dish - half the time customer service has no clue. Nothing has been added to the menu's or content on any part of the system since I upgraded almost a year ago. 1 H3, 1 joey, 1 4k joey, and one wireless joey. None of the same things are on any of them.
I don't think Amazon's receivers support 4K Amazon content, just Netflix and Dish's own at this point.Both Netflix and Amazon have 4k content. Isn't that what the 4k Joey is supposed to do?
Dish has pushed numerous updates to the 4K Joey, and all of their Hopper-family receivers. Just because you don't see a menu change, doesn't mean anything.Nothing has been added to the menu's or content on any part of the system since I upgraded almost a year ago.
