    Question about 211/411 HD SOLO Receiver

    Hello, I will be getting HD Dish Network installed at my apartment next week, and on my e-mail, it says that the receiver that will be installed is 'RCVR 211/411 HD SOLO', and I am wondering what cables come with it? Is it component cables? Is it an HDMI cable? Because if it doesn't come with an HDMI cable, I would like to order an HDMI cable from monoprice.com so I can have it by the time my HD Dish Network is installed.



    Thanks!

    Probably will NOT come with an HDMI cable. Experience varies. Monoprice has very good prices, you can get what you need quite reasonably.

    DO NOT accept a 411. Go out to the truck and demand (politely) to see what receiver he brought, before ANY work is done. It should be a ViP211. The 411 was produced in small quantities, is almost orphaned, and IIRC has no Ethernet port. You may one day want/need that port. Do not let the installation proceed if it's a 411. Do Not accept any promises that it'll be swapped out later.

    Unless Dish has changed, you'll only get composite, and maybe s video. Go ahead and order from monoprice.

    The 211k's in our region now come with an HDMI cable in the pack out, along with composite (RCA) cables. Also starting to see them in 222k's and some 722k's.

    For the couple of bucks that an HDMI cable costs at Monoprice, I'd go ahead and order one, if for nothing else as a spare....
