The shows show up under "My Recording" but they don't show under "My Timers".

We have one Hopper and 3 Joeys, but can only watch 3 different shows at any given time.

I called tech help and was informed that they were having a system wide problem.

I've had Dish for many years and was very satisfied with all aspects of their system. I foolishly signed up for Hopper about 3 months ago. I have four TVs (two Hoppers and two Joeys).

There are many things I like about Hopper such as;
1. Being able to record three programs at once.
2. The 2 terabyte DVR (I've been recording like crazy and haven't made a dent in it
3. The ability to attach my 2 terabyte hard drive giving me a total of 4 terabytes
4. Having HD on all my TVs
5. The many functions on the Main Menu

Things I don't like;
1. ICONs of programs I have recorded are difficult to read (do away with these or make them larger)
2. The text of all screens are too small for no reason
3. The gray text on a gray background sucks (all text should be black on white)
4. The old Dish allowed me to list 4 channels on Guide which made the text larger (restore this)

I believe the programmers were more concerned about creating a more modern format at the expense of functionality. The old Dish text was easy to read, so why fix something that wasn't broken.

I'm sorry I ever went to Hopper and am locked into a two year contract. Don't sign up until they fix the text problem (look at someone that has a TV the size of yours with Hopper installed and you will see what I mean). I guess I am fortunate, in that I have not had any of the problems others have mentioned such as black screens and lost recordings.

I would have rated Hopper five stars if it wasn't for the text problem. If you have difficulty reading what is on the screen, then what good is it?

I was quite reluctant to upgrade from a 2 DVR (VIP 722K)system to Dish Hopper after reading all the reviews. But finally I decided to take the risk because I wanted HD viewing in all TVs and also be able to watch any recorded show from anywhere in the house. I didn't have to pay any equipment fee with 2 year agreement. It has been a month since I switched to 1 hopper and 2 joey system and to my surprise I've no issues so far. Very happy with it. They keep on fixing the bugs as they find I guess. I also use sling adapter. And we also have external media with many recorded movies over last many years.

Only complaint so far is that we can't see shows on external media using sling anymore (that is why 4 out of 5 stars). This feature was available with VIP 722k. With hopper, you need to move your shows from external media to hopper in order to watch it via sling. Other than this, I love the new hopper !! Waiting for their wireless Joey to come in the market...

We were forced to upgrade when my receiver stopped working, and the only solution Dish provided was to upgrade ALL the receivers in the house. So, we purchased the Hopper system and honestly, I'd rather stare at the TV turned off than to have to deal with the Hopper. Here's a brief list of reasons why the Hopper is nothing short of a nightmare:

1. For some unknown reason it makes your TV glitch. Right in the middle of shows, the volume will cut out, the screen will cut out, and sometimes the thing completely shuts off.

2. When you're skipping forward, the volume will lower for no reason. You have to skip forward or backwards to get it back to normal, and sometimes you have to shut the whole thing off. Hope you recorded that show.

3. It performs system updates about every half hour. When I watch TV live, I like to pause it and let it gain some time so I can skip through the commercials. Usually I start doing other things, but if I don't watch the TV, it'll shut itself off for the system updates, especially at night. So much for pausing my TV show.

4. We have one Hopper and 3 Joeys, but can only watch 3 different shows at any given time. If all 3 open channels are taken, my brother has to watch whatever we're watching until a channel opens up. It's even more fun when you're recording things. Better hope that nothing's supposed to record while you're watching TV, because somebody's going to miss their show, and if you're not watching the receiver for the warning, it's going to be you.

5. It's just not user friendly. I'm very technically-savvy, and quite frankly, this interface is horrible. The DVR setup, and honestly, every setup is a nightmare. After endless hours of going through the guide, I realized we now get free movies.

We have had DISH for over 10 years. The Hopper system is a terrible upgrade in terms of the user interface. Yes it CAN do things that the older systems can't but the price you pay in extraneous graphics and clutsy menus is not worth it IMO. The interface seems to be designed for Bling not functionality.

My wife loves movies. Try to Browse for Movies and you get pages and pages of 15 icons which tell you the Title and nothing more. You must click on the icon to see any description. Then text overlays on the secondary icon tell you the date/time but its very difficult to read with the icon graphic in the background ... so you end up clicking again to get an actual text box that you can read.

Also Auto-tune feature is unnecessarily complicated to set. You MUST first choose to record a program and then go back and edit the timer to change it to Auto-tune.

They ought to make it a rule that the folks who design the software actually use it. They'd learn to make a clean and friendly interface.

I would NOT recommend to a friend.
