~serenity: I have been a dish customer for a whole * days, and I already regret it.**After being told by the sales person that the hopper could do exactly what Comcast could and stream tv*dvr to my ipad, I decided to make the switch. When the installer came out he told me to simply connect my ipad and my hopper to my wifi, download the app on my ipad, and I would be good to go.**He left. I connected everything and then received an error message saying I needed to buy an adapter for my hopper in order for it to work. Frustrated, I contacted online support who advised that it IS $** for the adapter and apologized for the misleading information I received, and then said that because I was only on day * with them they could switch out my hopper to the upgraded hopper which has the correct adapter built in to it. Then the chat disconnected so I had to restart with a new representative. This representative confirmed I could switch to the upgraded receiver and they could simply mail me the new receiver
