Can you self install a Hopper 3 or do you have to pay for a service call?

You can self install if you purchase all of the equipment from a 3rd party, such as dishdepot.com. It requires new LNB, new hub and Joey 2.0 atleast.

But apparently not if you rent it? When did the Joey 2.0 come out and how do I check if I have them?

I also already have two Hoppers wouldn’t my dual LNB be enough?

Having 2 Hoppers, if you wanted two H3’s, you would need a DPH42 switch. The DPP44 will not do. Also, the Node needs exchanged for a Hub. The current configuration on 2 Hoppers is no longer valid for the H3. Also, you’d have to upgrade both, and atleast one would have to be purchased. Leased upgrades require the technician.

My plan would me to go from two Hoppers and 3 Joeys to one Hopper 3 and three Joeys. From what you said before I take it my Joeys are not compatible.

The Joeys are likely fine, but I would just do the leased upgrade and get Joey3’s. They’re faster and better.
