The Dish Network User's Resource
The Joey is the “client module” in Dish Network's Hopper whole-home DVR full-HD solution. Built with MoCA 1.0 technology, up to 3 Joey clients can each supply HD to an HDTV on a video network over the home's existing RG6 or RG59 coax. It can also be connected with only Ethernet after taking its first software update over coax. The Joey allows each additional TV to share the same features as the main Hopper unit with the same look with the exceptions of no PiP, no component output,
and no Bluetooth.
