I can't believe it would be hardware related, I've had techs out x3 and the last guy that was there said he checked every connection and even changed out a cable.
Update. Still having to reset the Hopper daily, multiple times. Have had tech out he replaced the cable coming from the satellite to the house, insisted this was the problem and all my issues should be resolved, he wasn't gone two hours, turned tv back on still shows 0 of 0 tuners error message and had to be reset in order to watch TV. Our 10 year old autistic grandson now knows how to reset the Hopper as he's usuallyl the one closest to it when it needs reset. Now they've sent me an Internet Hopper Connector but I have to wait until mid June for someone to come out and "install" it. I have 0 expectations anymore that this issue will ever be resolved. I'm at a loss of what to do. I simply wanted to upgrade from our old system which we'd had for 12+ yrs to the new and "improved" Hopper 3 system, it's been nothing but a pain in the **bleep**.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue, HANNASDISH! You should definitely have access to all your tuners at all times. Let's check a few things. Can you go to the Hopper and press the Home/Menu button three times? It will take you to a Diagnostics screen. Can you give me the Hopper's software version?
