YES THE 211z will work with a dish 500 and legacy LNBs. The problem your mother might have is the 211Z doesn't have a coaxial cable output. If her cable is connected with Composite (red,white.yellow RCA jacks) she will be OK.

If you have an internal DISH tech come out and do the install we can upgrade the LNB and install an RF mod if it is an older TV so you can guarantee everything works flawlessly
