    Will the Hopper 3 be the default for all Dish customers in the future especially when they sign up for regular programming (AT 120 and above)?

    This option applies especially if the customer wants DVR.

    I highly doubt it.
    Except that there are two DVR options that are cheaper for customers who only have one or two TV's: Hopper Duo, and adding a hard drive to a Wally and paying the one-time $40 fee. Obviously, customers who don't want DVR at all would also get a Wally. I have said it before: Hopper 3 for everyone is a non-starter.

    Are Hopper 2s (HWS) still being installed for new customers?

    After the EMTs revived me, and I was able to stop repeating “red LED, red LED...” they said the best thing for me now was to post:
    Could someone add a question mark to the thread title?

    A question mark would be nice I was thinking if the hopper 3 is now the primary receiver than we have some new one on the horizon.

    And both of those options have the same DVR fee as the Hopper 3. When I said that there are two cheaper DVR options, I did not mean to imply that those were the only other DVR options available to new customers.

    The Hopper model provided is based on the prospective customers credit rating, at least when it comes to any "free equipment" deals. As some have indicated, all three generations of Hoppers are still being installed today.

    A question mark was not enough to revive him.
    Now doctor is saying he will make a full recovery. :)

    Two points for naming the movie that brought that to mind.

    I remember something older, (80's??) and recall it was a strange movie, but can't think of the name. I was young.
    Or at least that is what I am remembering I could be confused with something else.

    I’d say it ain’t that old, but that’s relative to one’s age, ain’t it?

    1979.

    Ok, not so recent.

    <sigh>
