Dish Joey

The little multi-room client, known as the Dish Joey, is just what you’d want in a streamer: compact, lightweight and replete with various mounting options. Its small removable base has holes perfect for wall-mounting or to wire tie it to the back of an HDTV. The base can be attached to the  Dish Joey vertically or horizontally, and can be attached after the mount has been fastened to make the installation easier. The outputs are much more sparse than on the Hopper, but while component HD outputs are missing, optical audio, HDMI and Ethernet are all there. Unlike the Hopper, the Joey has a wall-wart power supply. The coax is used to stream content from the Hopper for multi-room viewing, but an Ethernet connection to your network is still required for things like DLNA, some video on demand services and interacting with the smartphone and tablet app remotes. If you can’t connect the Ethernet, you can buy the optional Hopper Internet Connector to bridge the IP between MoCA to Ethernet since the Hopper can’t do it; standard MoCA bridges aren’t compatible. One last feature worth mentioning is SRS TruVolume (also offered on the Hopper), which helps spare you the pain of loud commercials.
