Depends what you're preference are. If you want a modern interface with internet related apps and the voice remote, then you may like a Wally better. If you want the things thaty you've come to appreciate with a 211K, then you'd rather have that
It depends on whether you have the dual-tuner OTA adapter to go with the Wally. In that case, I find the Wally to be better because of the two satellite tuners and two OTA tuners. Apps and VOD are also nice additions with the Wally, compared to the ViP211k. I have three ViP211k's, and I deactivated and disconnected two of them and replaced them with two Wally. I do keep the other ViP211k (also deactivated) hooked up though, because it still works for watching free preview channels and OTA channels, and I like the way ViP receivers scan OTA better than the way receivers with the new interface do.
I guess what I would like to know is: I have a Wally receiver, with an external hard drive, and a Dish Tailgater, If I buy a Winegard Pathway X2, will the Wally be able to record one channel while I am watching another?
