On 9/5/18 my Hopper 3 failed to record the Bears Vs Packers. It was a 1 time recording (not a series timer) and the schedule list showed the event just as it was supposed to be recorded. It just didn't do it.
I had 1 other event scheduled to record at the same time (US Open Tennis) which is did recored. I believe it should be able to do up to 16 events at once? Maybe you need the "Joey's" to get to 16, but 2 is well within the range of concurrent recordings.
This is extremely frusterating, as now I cannot trust my equipment to do what it is supposed to do. Being able to DVR games is literlly the only reason I pay for the entire Dish package.
