Brand new to Dish as of yesterday and I am really impressed all of these cool features! Well done, folks.
Just one thing, thoigh. The notifications (press select to record, Live TV) continue to pop up even though I have disabled enhancements and am up-to-date with the latest software. It stays on the screen for several seconds and its driving me a little bit nuts.
Additionally, and perhaps more importantly; is there a way to disable the Dish Anywhere bottom banner that occasionally pops up when you switch to a channel? I know about Dish Anywhere and really don't need the constant reminders, particularly because it blocks the lower third of the screen and stays on for far too long. I could see showing these banners a couple of times when people first get Dish, but this is overkill.
Hopper 2, software version SWID U242

I saw elsewhere in this forum, by the way, something about turning off the EPG banner in my settings but it does not appear as though that is an option.
As for the Hopper 2 - I probably should have gone with the 3 but I really didn't even want to get Dish. I cut the cord years ago but the streaming tv services are just.. terrible. DTV Now is just awful, awful garbage. Sling wasn't bad but it lacked locals and some other things, learned it was owned by Dish, thought the pricing was reasonable and now here I am. Back with real TV. It really is so nice. I am in love with this interface and the really thoughtful features all over the place. It's been fun to explore. And maybe all of the things I'm so impressed by have been around for some time, but certainly not as of the last time I had TV, which would have been DTV around 2012. Loving it. Just gotta get rid of these bsnners!
