Hopper using all 3 Tuners for 2 programs

Hello.  I’ve only had Dish for a few weeks, but I’ve noticed that often when it records, it will be recording the same program on 2 of the 3 tuners.  Is there a way to get it to stop?  Why would it do this?  These are new DVRs and a new 4k Joey.  Also, I’ve read where you can record up to 16 programs at the same time, but I don’t see how.   I’m only seeing capabilities to record 3.  Any help on this would be appreciated.

Sounds like you got the Hopper2, which only has 3 tuners. The Hopper 3 has 16. What channel are the shows recording from?

It’s different channels every time.  If it were one specific channel, it would be easier.  So I’m flummoxed as to what to do.

 

As to the Hopper, I wasn’t even given the option of choosing a different one.  They just brought one out and hooked it up, so of course, I believed at the time that it would be capable of recording more than 3 programs, since the ad didn’t specify that I had to have an upgrade.
