    I have a second Hopper3 4k receiver and 4k LG and the only thing that happens when I tune to DISHes 4k channels when they are supposedly transmitting is a receiver that locks up. I was told by two different tech support people that this is an ongoing problem.

  2. Yes, but to watch the World Cup in 4k, you need a Hopper 3. Extra TV’s without the Hopper 3 attached still can with the 4k Joey.
