I am having the same OTA recording problems. Signal strength is 100 and I can watch live OTA channels on the Hopper just fine. When I try to record an OTA channel, its unwatchable. Ive tried Dish Chat Support and have gotten no where with anyone there.
Has anyone heard from Dish? This problem has been going on for over a year it seems. I am getting pretty pissed at this point. THe main reason I got the OTA was to be able to record shows and have an extra tuner.
I also are having the same problem with the dual OTA adapter. Tried two different addapters. When selecting an OTA ch most of the time it would come up with an error message saying
OTA CHANNEL SIGNAL LOSS 739
ATTEMPTING TO GET SIGNAL
signal level would be 80-100 and would say SIGNAL OKAY
the circle in the middle of the message would go around and around as if it was trying to find a signal even though it says signal level okay.
I called Dish. Explained to a CSR. She dispatched a tech. When the tech arrived he had an old first virsion single OTA addapter so we tried it and it works perfectly. The problem is it is a SINGLE tuner OTA addapter instead of a DUAL. When i upgraded to the Hopper from the VIP722, witch had a dual OTA tuner in it, I expected to have the same flexabilaty of viewing while recording a second OTA ch at the same time.
HELLO DISH ENGINEERING.......YOU HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!!!! FIX IT!!!!!!
