As always thanks for all the info...
I have the Wally and it has some bugs yet. It loses the satellites at night. It makes me rescan about every morning. Just a nuisance and Dish claims that they are working on a fix. If you want to use the Wally with the OTA signal you will need an adapter that requires a USB port. There are only two USB ports on it but I had a USB splitter with four ports. I used the two ports on the Wally to power the splitter. I have the blue tooth adapter, the external hard drive and the WiFi adapter plugged into three of the four ports on the splitter and they all work fine. I run a Dlna server on the network I have running in the RV and the Wally has a compatible media player built in. The remote buttons for fast forward/reverse, pause, etc only works for the DVR function. There is a software solution that works but Dish support knows nothing about it though. Supports Netflix as well as several other online services but you will have to buy the WiFi adapter and have Internet access. I got my Wally from Solidsignal.com for about $70. If you have other questions feel free to ask.
