DISH's New HD DVR: Learn Why the Hopper Is More Than Your Average DVR!

June 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

Digital Video Recorders (DVR) are nothing new but it's good to know that providers continue to innovate and integrate their products. Traditionally, a DVR is generally known as a large bulky set-top box that sounds like an old desktop computer. It can store all your favorite movie and TV shows. Recent breakthroughs have made technology more advanced allowing manufacturers to produce more efficient and attractive models by bringing new technology into the product.

Ten years ago you could get a DVR that would record about 30 hours worth of programming. Today's hard drives can store up to 1000 hours or 2 Terabytes worth of recordings. While the DVR comes with a limited hard drive, it does have the ability to add an external hard drive and expand its storage. Note, once a recording is moved from the internal onto an external hard drive the placement is permanent.

The latest DVR is labeled, "The Hopper." This unit is a three-tuner whole-home High Definition DVR that allows recording on up to six high-definition channels at once allowing playback in any room. Also, provides the ability to operate four TVs simultaneously from one video recorder. Additional benefits include the ability to watch a show while recording another at the same time. Plus, the option to pause, record and playback TV shows On-Demand.

This receiver has a feature called, "Prime Time Anytime or PTAT." PTAT allows instant on-demand access to shows on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX in high-definition where available the day after the initial showing. On-demand shows are available for up to 8 days. The new Auto-hop feature seamlessly skips over the commercials so there is no pushing a skip forward button.

This is the first model I've seen that has a remote locator. The button is located on the front panel of the receiver. A signal is sent to the remote causing it to beep, so it's easy to find. The feature is available on all the receivers connected to the Hopper.

Link up a Bluetooth like wireless headphones and multimedia devices. Have access to SIRIUSXM Satellite Radio, Pandora Internet Radio, Facebook and Twitter; along with interactive games, news, sports, weather and stock quotes.

(PIP) Picture-in-picture isn't new but it is a rare find these days. PIP allows viewing of two shows at once from the same screen. Great feature, for those who like to watch more than show at once.

Stream movies with DISH Cinema or Blockbuster at Home. Blockbuster at Home package includes 17 premium movie channels and options to download over 10,000 titles. Take your programs with you by hooking up a Sling Adaptor with TV Everywhere. TV Everywhere allows access on mobile phones, PC's and Tablets. Remotely control the DVR recordings at DISHonline.com or with the DISH Remote App.

With all the latest developments, it's easy to see why consumers are choosing the Hopper. DISH is the fastest growing and second largest satellite provider in the United States. New technology can be overwhelming so always make sure you understand what you're getting.
