This is a piece of crap!! Wish I had never gotten it!! Can't record and watch over three programs and that is in three rooms!! I want to get rid of it and go back to what I had and I still have to pay the $100 and dish keeps changing my appointments. If I could get rid of Dish I would do that too, but they made me sign up for two more years just to get the hopper. Don't get the hopper!!
