Fair point, but then again, how many homes currently would need BOTH 4K at more than the primary viewing location (where H3 would be) AND require a Wireless Joey at those add'l locations? Seems like that would be a relatively tiny number at present.
That’s what my installer said when I got my 4K Joeys. It’s the first one he installed. I’m not sure why they aren’t any more popular.. they are much faster than Joey 2’s. It’s probably because they don’t come by default and cost extra.
And I don’t have a 4K TV either. They are going to have to rip my Samsung plasma tv out of my hands before I give it up. I think plasma’s have the best picture. It’s a shame they don’t make them anymore.
I think my two 4KJs are faster than my two WJs. I got the 4K Joeys for the speed. And my 4KJs do not have 4K TVs yet. Don't have a Joey 2 to compare. I would think the next step for DISH is to come out with a wireless 4K Joey.
That, and the average person signing up for Dish would have no idea (or, to be honest, care) that it's faster than the regular Joeys. The average person is going say "No" when asked if they need 4K, and that will be the end of it. Heck, a large percentage would probably still ask, "What is 4K?" Us SatGuys are generally not the average Dish subscriber.
You would get Joey 2 with an H3 install. They are usable, if not speed-demons. If slow hardware bothers you, you might consider 4K Joeys at higher-use Joey locations. I think there is still an upcharge for them though. I know it was $50 per 4K Joey for a while, not sure if that is still the case.
