My Hopper w/sling worked fine untile the "upgrade" several months ago. Now I have to go thru the drill twice to view the programming on the external drive. I have three HD's hooked up and they work great except for the viewing. Maybe I need to try a different "network". I talked to dish about this last year and they gave me the "we're working on it".
