Can't transfer shows from Hopper/DVR to iPad mini4!

I just got a new I-pad mini, and everything works fine except trying to transfer shows from my DVR to this iPad. Dish anywhere shows I am connected to my hopper living-room1 but won't allow downloads to my iPad from DVR (stays in "waiting to transfer" mode and pressed various buttons including edit on the transfer screen. One time it said it was not connecting with the hopper, even though the rest of the dish anywhere APP said it was connected. Here's what I tried to do to fix this problem with no results:

1. Restarted the hopper
2. Restarted my iPad
3. Restarted Dish Anywhere APP
4. Logged out and in of Dish Anywhere and tried putting in IP address of my hopper which was rejected.
5. Called Dish Technical Support to look at this but no fixes were found.
6. Both iPad and dish internet were connected with dlink-A726 wifi.

Anyone here have any suggestions on how to get transfer to work with my iPad? Thanks

Are both connected on the same network. I have two networks in my house. 2.4Gz and 5Gz. Both named very similarly and switch between frequencies depending on what I am doing.

I just tried doing this also and it doesn't work. I can watch live tv or DVR recordings but can't transfer programs. I wanted to do this to watch on a long airplane ride. Called Dish and was told you can't transfer to mobile devices but need to purchase the HopperGo for $99. If I can view the program on my iPad don't understand why it can't be transferred to the iPad. OK, the HoppeGo allows several (5) people to connect at once but I don't really need this. Not customer friendly to force a person to purchase an item not needed and maybe unsed once in a while.

When you go into the DISHAnywhere App on the iPad, does it let you select on "Transfer" at all, after selecting a recording you want transferred?

Once you go into your DISH Anywhere App and click on Recordings, after clicking the show that you want to transfer, you should get at least four options. They are Watch, Delete, Transfer, and More. What options come up instead?

Has anyone received a recent answer to this issue? I have been trying to transfer a show recorded on my DVr to my ipad and for hours all I see is "transferring" by the movie I'm trying to move to the ipad. Does this actually ever transfer? 
Why should it take sooooooo long and does it actually work?
