My question was why does it work and most times it doesn’t. Sorry I thought my question was posted

When you say why does it work and then sometimes it doesn’t, do you mean the availability?

Hey smb, the AutoHop feature is available on all recorded PrimeTime events. Have you checked your PrimeTime settings to ensure that it is also set to record on Friday-Sunday? If not, below are the steps to check your PrimeTime settings:

  1. Press MENU once or the HOME button 2 times
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Go to PrimeTime Anytime
  4. Go down to "Days to Record" and ensure that says "All".

Hi, i guess it's not the DAY but the NETWORK i'm trying to watch/hop thru. My Sunday & Friday shows are on Fox - does that network count? I've never been able to hop. Thanks!

Yes, PrimeTime Anytime can record ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC if you're settings are set to record all 4 networks. On the same settings page from the previous steps, just check where it says "Channels to Record" and ensure the channels you want to record are selected.

Fox will take 7 days to enable AutoHop.

Ok thank you. Is this in Dish's literature about its features?
