I am thinking about purchasing a 211K to hookup in my bedroom. Currently, I am able to watch TV in the bedroom from the 722K from the den. I was thinking about hooking up the 211K myself, so how easy would it be to accomplish this? I am pretty technical, so doing something like this does not scare me. No matter how hard the task is.

Run a cable from the dish to your 211k. That's about it. Make sure it is a direct line from the LNB on the dish to the satellite in port on the 211k. Let the receiver go through all the downloads and when that's done you can call Dish and activate it.

Two good sites to order your 211k from are dish depot and solid signal. I've delt with both and both are good company's to deal with.

A family member has two. I like them because you optionally turn them into DVRs for a one-time $40 fee and an external hard drive. You can also avoid a monthly DVR fee with the 211 unless you have another DVR receiver.
