Thanks. Can you send me a private message with the phone number and 4 digit security code on your DISH account so I can add you to our feedback of those experiencing this error?
When I try to access VOD, it says "streaming error 006 (or 008)". I tried to do it from the main hopper and from a joey, same thing. I did the "unplug, wait, re-plug" and reset the hopper, no luck. I'm paying way too much and can't watch what I want. Please advise!!
janeb63, that error usually points to an issue with the Hopper connecting to the Internet to be able to stream the VOD. Is your Hopper connected wirelessly to the Internet or with an ethernet cable?
That's a direct connection to the Internet, which is good. Let's test the speed and see what that tells.
Depending on the remote that you have, you will either need to press the Menu button twice or the Home button three times. This will take you to the Diagnostics screen. From here, you will want to select Status > Check Status > Yes.
After it runs the check, what does it have listed next to the field "Internet Status"?
Thank you for checking that, janeb63. I would like to send your account to our Engineering Team to add this to the list of customers that are experiencing this error. Can you please send me a Private Message with the phone number and 4 digit Pin on your account?
