Using a Hopper 3 with the Winegard Travler

After about two months of testing, it looks like DISH’s new 16-tuner Hopper 3 will work with the automatic rooftop Winegard Travler dish.

Though a standard DISH Travler will have to be modified, this allows a game-changing satellite DVR system to be used in an RV.

As of today, it looks like I am the only person to test DISH’s new Hopper 3 with a modified Winegard Travler. Though I claim bragging rights, consider this . . . you may want to wait until other folks report their success (or failure) with this system before doing it yourself.

For details, see Hopper 3 & the Winegard Travler.
