I called today and the guy tried to explain how you connect the Hopper to the Joeys. I assumed they were wireless. But he said you have one line in from the dish, then lines from the hopper to each joey. How do you have them run through the house? If acted as if I didnt know what I was talking about. But if you have cables running from the Hopper to each joey, where are the cables running?
He kept saying the house is already ready. Uh no i dont have cables running through my house from room to room. LOL

I think I remember the installer running cable through our attic/down the walls, but we weren't wired for cable in the room that got the Joey.

I have this set up (and love it, btw) and the joeys are connected to regular cable outlets. When we moved in this house was wired for cable in every room except the formal living room and dining area. I had one outlet installed in the dining area because that is my office/scraproom. Anyway, where ever you have or put an outlet, you can have a Hopper or Joey. It's 2 joeys to every hopper.

The part I like the best is the sling adapter. I can bring my TV with me, lol. I catch up on my DVR'd shows at the kids' sports practices.
