I believe the Hopper only has 3 tuners. If you use prime time that counts as one tuner and you can record on the other two. With out prime time you can only record on three tuners.

You were right about the joey. Dish came out with the super joey in the month of march It has two tuners in it and brings the amount of shows you can record up to 5 at one time. It will require a higher bandwidth coax according to Dish.

I have an older coach which does runs coax cables everywhere instead of HDMI cables. To get connection between the single node and the joey I used the cable for OTA connection going back to the back TV. I have the OTA adapter you were talking about running between the OTA and hopper so I can access OTA channels through my hopper.

I personally think the Dome Sattelite dishes are a waste of money. Actually the cost between the inmotion dome and the dish traveler is very little. When I had a problem with my new in motion and told them to replace it with a dish traveler the traveler was on sale and it and the winegard inmotion was the same price

^^^^ The hopper has 6 tuners. 4 are used for prime time. It's true you can only access three tuners. And like I said, you can use the rg75 installed in most rigs to carry the OTA antenna signals to the rear tv to send signals from the node to the Joey. But be sure to check behind panels as some manufacturers install a second amp in the line to the rear tv. This amp must be bypassed. From what you are saying, if one installs a super Joey another coax will have to be run from the node to the Joey. Even standard rg6 won't pass the necessary signals.

We would not be without our Traveler dish and Dish network. You can record multiple channels at once. You can not do that with a dome. Do yourself a favor and just get the Traveler with a Dish network dvr. We've been using ours for years with no issue.

Two dome satellites?

This thread was the information I really needed -- we just recently got two Wally receivers with one Playmaker Dual Dome and replaced our factory TracVison dome which will not work with DISH any longer since that connection to the sky was stopped.

Yep - just as mentioned on a previous thread, we could not watch TV on the second TV (bedroom) unless a station that was on the exact same satellite as the LR (main TV). We are new to this, so it was extremely frustrating. My Question: Since the Playmaker Dome is relatively small, can we purchase another dome, install on the top of the RV also and connect the secondary satellite cable which goes to the bedroom to the new dome? Leaving the LR TV on the original dome? Will it then work independently as another primary receiver?
