New DISH Hybrid Pro Equipment


Zulu

Recommended Posts

No SWM is a DirecTV technology.

 

Dish uses DPP (Dish Pro Plus), an earlier technology, by several years, to SWM for bringing signals from the dish to the MOCA ( Multimedia Over Coax Alliance) network used inside the facility. DPP provided for the stacking of two signal streams on one coax cable. SWM provides for 8 endpoints.

 

MOCA has more end points than SWM but currently is only used between the Hopper and Joeys (clients).

 

The new DPH ( Dish Pro Hybrid) is changing the number of data streams between the dish and the MOCA network and will be used only in Hopper installations.

 

Dish tries very hard not to obsolete the equipment in the field and introduces technology in a compatible way.

Thanks for the info. Couple questions.

 

I currently have a Winegard Traveler, a Hopper with Sling with a OTA tuner, a Super Joey and two wireless Joeys, installed in my coach. If I converted the LNB to the PRO and switched to the HOPPER3 what would become of the WIreless Joeys and Super Joey?

I believe I'd gain more tuners, 16 vs the 5.

But what do I lose?

Does the Hopper3 support the same OTA tuner?

The wireless Joeys?

Also where did you acquire your PRO LNB?

TIA

You probably couldn't use any of your current equipment -- the Super Joey for certain.

 

Currently, Hopper 3s only work with Joey 2.0s & 4K Joeys. Plus, you can't have more than one Hopper 3 and you can't mix other older Hoppers.

OTA Tuner -- probably.

Wireless Joeys -- unknown

 

 

Also where did you acquire your PRO LNB?

 

Western Arc Hybrid Pro LNBF

 

Eastern Arc Hybrid Pro LNBF
