Autohop available only during recording?

New to Hopper 3. Doing a search for how to use autohop the instructions are clear at https://www.mydish.com/support/products ... vr/autohop

However it doesn't work for me. I contacted dish support and the tech claims that authop is available only for prime Time recordings and only when recording is in progress

Is this correct?

Auto hop is not available when a show is recording. The feature takes a few days to be activated due to our contractual agreements with channel owners. ABC takes 4 days for Auto Hop to become available, NBC takes 7 days, FOX takes 7 days, and CBS takes 8 days. Auto Hop is not available for live events (i.e. news, special events, sporting events).

Thanks for your response.
