Got a Hopper 3? Notice DISH Anywhere stopped working? I’ll help you fix it.
Long story short, I moved. Went through guided setup. Told it to go from CableCARD to OTA-only mode (I’m having the installer out later this month). Now, my TiVo is trying to record shows using the OTA map in my old area. Even when I chose the channel in my new area, and select the […]
