HYBRID 1000.2 LNB and the Hybrid Solo Node IS REQUIRED for use with the Hopper 3. Previous LNB's and previous Solo Node WILL NOT work with the Hopper 3.
Dish's upcoming Hopper 3 is one turbo-charged, feature-packed DVR. Not only does it have 16 tuners and Netflix integration in its universal search results, but there's a new proprietary "Sports Bar Mode" that allows you to play four live HD channels simultaneously on one 4K screen. The thing is fast, too. Powered by the Broadcom 7445, a quad-core Arm processor, the company says the new DVR operates at seven times the speed of Hopper 2. It's got 2 terabytes of internal storage, enough to save up to 500 hours of HD content, and is the first DVR to use USB 3.0 connectivity for external storage expansion, which allows for 10x faster transfer speeds. Or, you can watch Netflix, which is integrated into the Hopper 3 and even its universal search. YouTube is coming later this year to do the same thing. Watch Netflix, play games, or listen to Pandora. Hopper 3 is packed with tons of apps for everyone in your family. If you can think it, you can find it. Look up titles and actors across your channel lineup, recorded programs, Netflix, and On Demand shows with just one search. Hopper Remote with Voice coming soon. With built-in 4K support, you can watch a variety of On Demand movies, shows and Netflix in 4K quality. Hopper 3 has all of your favorite features from Hopper and Hopper with Sling, plus new features you're sure to love. Allows additional USB external storage. -The Best of CES 2016, Best Home Theater Gear-PC Magazine -CES Editors' Choice- Reviewed.com -"The Hopper 3 Is the Most Ludicrously Powerful Cable Box Ever"-Wired.com

Good for home use. Not RV
Pretty neat. Much better interface and nice recording time
This just isn't ready for prime time. It is very buggy. While it has great recording capability, other aspects just do not work well. Fast forward & rewind blow past where you expect them to land. They probably intentionally deleted the 4x speed as there is a lack of precision here possibly due to the inability of the Joey units to communicate well with the Hopper unit. We have paused live television only to have the system feel that it should un-pause for us and go to live TV. No problem you'd think but the number of times these Joey units freeze up or blow past the intended spot when rewinding is unbelievable. DISH, please get the bugs out and then release a functional product. The much older "VIP" equipment was far more reliable & functional. Per DISH reps, this system was delayed 1 1/2 years from its original intended release date. It still isn't ready. DO NOT "UPGRADE" TO THIS EQUIPMENT UNTIL DISH FIXES THE BUGS.
