Dish hopper guide not updating
However, the Hopper is hardcoded for that time and despite Dish promising to change it for a year now, they still haven't.The work around is to have it actively recording during that time.If you are not watching, but listening, or ignoring because a commercial is playing, it shuts down.As a night owl, I am typically watching TV and it is a PIA to say the least.The Hopper will shutdown to download updates and the guide.You get about a 30 second warning to stop it, or it shuts down and takes 3 - 4 minutes to reboot, and still needs to be manually turned back on.
Keep the receiver plugged into a phone line at all times.
DISH sent me a thick envelope yesterday filled with all kinds of offers and freebees. Inside the 'We value you as our customer and appreciate your business' card, it states 'programming package price will be increased by starting in February. x 12 million subscribers= million more revenue per month. You can't honestly sit and say there is always updates every single day at - am, if this is the case, then it must be the biggest pile of junk on the planet. However, if it wasn't for being roped into a 2 year contract, I would have ditched it after the first week over this.
I'm finding it hard to believe that channels have to charge more because of their cheap to produce reality programs. Not for program updates as I own [as in purchased] my receiver 15 years ago. The shut down is to validate the smart card that you are paying your bill."We are working on a software update for the Hopper system to where customers can change the update time." Of course no other respectable software developer requires a complete reboot of their software on a daily basis. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.
