Extreme Hopper Technology

05 May 2015 - 04:00 PM

I have 2 DISH Hopper DVRs in my RV and maintain a DISH technology web page (DISH TV for RVs), but I wondered how many of these DVRs could be networked together. Is there a limit? How many would DISH let you have?
I asked around on Satellite Guys, discovered that some of my prior ideas were wrong, but finally came up with an "ultimate" network.
Though pretty much impractical in an RV, I was told by a DISH rep that "Though we have a 16 receiver limit for a single account, we could let you have 7 Hoppers" (2 leased & 5 purchased).
I quickly ended that conversation as the DISH rep was drooling at the possibility of selling me those 5 Hoppers @ $349 a pop. BTW, the street price is a lot cheaper.
Anyway, I was really just interested in the network technology and the fact that a lot of Hoppers could be networked from a single Winegard Travler.
So here's Nerdtopia . . .

Digital Cable TV Question

When the Feds mandated the OTA analog-to-digital conversion a few years back, was analog-to-digital cable TV conversion also a part of that? Or is something else driving the change?
