After going from the VIP722 to the hopper and wireless joey I have had nothing but issues with OTA channels. The hopper keeps showing notifications that it has detected a OTA plugged in after already being plugged in and scanned for channels. I missed the whole fourth quarter of a sports game because of this and will not put up with that. I got suckered into a 2 year subscription with this so called upgrade that was supposed to be so much better but I totally disagree. I will be building my own PVR in the future for my home and will slowly get rid of Dish network as a customer after 20 years.
^^^^ A reason why I have a separate co-ax cable running from the antenna to the 'TV' input on the TV. When I want to watch a 'local', I change input on TV remote from HDMI1 to TV and use the TV remote for channel choice.
