Does anybody know the rules for auto hopping? How many days do you have to wait on each network for auto hopping to activate?

Hello jsdvis. I know the rules and I'll share them.

AutoHop is not available for live events (i.e. news, special events, sporting events)
Certain networks require a delay on the availability of AutoHop, AutoHop restrictions are required as part of our agreements with local networks.
ABC (Unrestricted Markets) (1 day delay), ABC (Restricted Markets) (4 day delay)
NBC (Unrestricted Markets) (1 day delay), NBC (Restricted Markets) (7 day delay)
Fox (7 day delay)
CBS (8 day delay)

What I do for shows I like, I also record them into another folder on my main DVR page. This way I can just wait the number of days and auto hop without worrying about them being deleted by the next week episode.

So based on this information I've taken a DOWNGRADE by coming to DISH from Tivo!? This is very upsetting because I was severely misled into thinking that your "Auto Hop" feature would have the same or simiar usability as Tivo's.

Tivo has a LOT more channels that qualify and there is NO restriction as to how many days you have to wait..

 

Here's their list:
