Why would a 722 and 211 (3 tuners) be any better than a Hopper/Joey (3 tuners + PTAT + autohop + whole home DVR + HD GUI + 1TB space)?
Right now with one 722 and an OTA module, I have 4 tuners, I can expand my storage if I need to, and when the heavy rains come, I can still at least watch something live. I'm not sure exactly what "whole home DVR" means, but I can schedule recordings from my bedroom and stop and resume recordings from either location. I don't really care about the HD GUI, but I suppose it's cool to have. I don't know what PTAT and autohop are, and I'm skeptical of slingbox technology. It's good that you're lovin' your Hopper, but I guess some of us are still Luddites.
