    Only one receiver, a 211K that has been ordered, will be on the account full time. My current receiver, a hopper, is going back to Dish when the 211K is in hand. I own a 211z for which I bought a OTA single receiver tuner and this receiver *might* be added to my account when traveling in my TT...

    So if/when I had the TT and 211z with its OTA dongle somewhere the tailgater antenna could see the southern sky, I could call dish, add the receiver as mobile, get service (guide) and go from there?

    Thanks. I have ordered a 211K to stay in the cabin (read above) and I'll use the 211Z as a playback machine only in the TT. Maybe I can test both soon. That is if I can use either without being hooked up to dish (read listed on my account) to test OTA reception?

    Fresh off the phone with Dish fyi. Regarding differences in OTA reception/record-ability with a 211K with its onboard tuner or a 211Z with a external single tuner. There is no difference.

    I suspect you are right about the K and I am leaning towards going that direction. I don't have much in the Z and its new to me tuner anyway. I looked at the Wally but, and certainly a topic for another thread, I ruled it out.

    Thanks guys for the replies. While I may still use a 211K eventually, there may be a slight change to my plan. Overnight I found and bought a single tuner that is reported to work with my 211z. This begs the question; which will work better. A 211K with its onboard tuner or a 211Z with a...

    I have planned to buy and use a 211k, because of its onboard ota tuner, all along. Since I already own a 211z, the z will be used as a playback machine only. Good to know re: multi EHD's. As of 4 days ago, D reps were quoting same price on refurbs. Thanks

    Hello, Haven't been posting here since I quit fooling around with C band. Today I am seeking help some help (read, will this work) with some changes to a dish system I currently have on a small, one TV cabin deep in the mountain woods of east TN. The system is very simple, a hopper with sling...

    Is 99W Galaxy 16 up and running?

    I tried this and it made so difference. Finally I moved the dish with the actuator until I was somewhere between 97 and 101 (not showing any signal from either that is) and in spite of not showing a lock on 99, I blinded scanned it anyway. Mysteriously, I got the channels from 99. I still don't...

    Huh. Thanks guys. I haven't had a problem before. I wonder what I am not doing right?

    Is 99W Galaxy 16 up and running?

    I set up a dish for a friend today. Got on the TS sat with no problem. Moved west and got 97W and 101W without problems but no lock on 99W. Quality meter bounces from 14 to 38. TIA

    Complete newbie

    If you can use this, come and get it, its free for the taking. It is a ChannelMaster 75e and I *might* have an LNBF and the bolts for it. It can be in SE TN about 118 miles from you. I'll be there the Fri after Thanksgiving for about 3 weeks. Let me know before Thanksgiving and I'll take it...
