NOTICE: If you think you have a 2018+ unit, please see my NEW video. If it turns out you do not have a 2018+ unit, you would still be able to use the method below as it will work for any Winegard DISH Trav’ler. 

So you have a Dish Winegard Trav’ler and would love to use the very powerful and fast Hopper 3 but have been told you could not.  Well, you were told wrong!  You surely can do it and in this video, I show you how. 

The Hooper 3 is Dish’s top of the line receiver with 16 tuners!  Yes, you read that right…16! As such, you can record A LOT of shows even if they are all on at the same time.  It is a very fast and friendly DVR right down to being voice activated. (Internet access is required for some functions such as that.) 

There are three parts you will need…

Parts Needed:

Hybrid DPH42 Switch:
Solo Hub:
1.5 Foot Patch Cables 3 Pack:

IMPORTANT NOTE: A DVR uses a hard drive to store things like a computer does. The hard drives in DVR’s, any DVR as of this writing, is a mechanical device with moving parts. As such, you want to be sure you unplug or power off the DVR when you travel. If you do not do so, you run the risk of damaging the hard drive to the point of system failure.
