Hopper 3 Installation

Recommended Posts

  I am 75 and have been trying to understand everything to get it to work but guess i'm not smart enough to figure it out.I have looked at the drawings and don't understand if I have to change other cables on the dishes wiring or what.Been on the roof of the fifth wheel six times and that's six to many.Would love a easy answer.

Some people watch TV more than others. I record Meet the Press every Sunday. Sometimes it's Friday before I get time to watch it. I guess I just like being outdoors more than watching the boob tube. My 211K with two tuners is more than enough for me. To each his own.

This is another situation where I am getting conflicting information from Dish.  You refer to 2 tuners with your 211K - presumably one for Dish and one for OTA.  Can you record from both with an external hard drive?  Dish says NO so I am coming to the experts for the TRUE facts.

Yes, you can record from both at the same time...............and watch a pre-recorded program while you're doing it.

Thank you for the response and for your information.  Wouldn't it be nice if the Dish Customer Service/Tech Support people were as knowledgeable as you and many others in this forum.  This is very helpful in my decision.

Exactly. I did that many times when I had a 211K.

I have a Hopper 3 and just purchased the DPH eastern arc LNB.  Do I only need to connect the 62.7 feed?  Also do I need to use the Dish Network Dish Pro Hybrid Solo Hub or can I connect directly to the Hopper 3 if I only plan to use one TV at the tailgate?  Any help is appreciated!  Thank you!

I am assuming you are talking about a tripod.  Yes, just one coax to the left coax port (looking at at the ports).  I believe you can connect straight to the Hopper 3 if no Joeys are used.
