How do you keep the hopper from changing to a channel you want to record while you are watching another show?

Hi there, krieken. The Hopper has floating tuners. If you are currently using a tuner and there is an open tuner available, the program recording should automatically record on a tuner in the background. If the other tuners are being utilized, typically the Hopper will prioritize used tuners on live TV instead of already recording tuners.


Make sure to check that you do not have other tuners, to help with this you might check out https://my.dish.com/support/products/receivers/hopper/how-to/conflict-resolution-screen
