2 Hoppers w/Sling / 2 Hopper 2000s / 1 Joey
1 ViP722k (separate account)
Dish didn't want to pee in their pool, which is why they made the cartoon.
Dish didn't do a side by side comparison of the Hopper and Genie because the Genie guide and channel changes are just as fast as the Hopper.
CES took place during day time hours, which at that time, the Hopper is only capable of recording 3 programs, ptat could not be done because of the time CES was going on. The Genie can record 5 programs all day long.
Dish couldn't do a 1H/3J comparison to a 1G/3C setup because it would of shown the limitations of a 1H/3J setup. It would shown how one of the Joeys would been stuck watching what the Hopper or another Joey was watching or be stuck watching a recorded program and no recording could happen without having a viewing conflict. A 1G/3C setup would of had the Genie and all three clients all watching different live programming and still have one more tuner free to record a 5th program.
