Which satellite receivers besides Hopper DUO are being installed for new customers these days?

I sure don’t recommend Hopper 2000s because I heard they are very slow in performance and people are getting where they don’t care for Hopper 2000s.

Hopper 2, hopper 3, joeys and Wally’s.

God I wish they would drop the kangaroo names and go back to model numbers
I do look forward to the Dingo, though. I hear the logo will actually be a hybrid mix of a kangaroo and a puppy. ;)

Are the 211’s still being activated for new customers?

How about 722's for non-Hopper users? I have one I expected to sell for not much. But my local Hopper installer claimed Dish wasn't activating any VIP equipment any longer. :crying

Don't know about 722's but from what we're told 722K's can only be used as replacements for existing customers who have a bad one.

I don't know about 211's but 211K's and 211Z's are.
I tried to reactive an account with a 211, after it was turned off for about 6 months, they wouldn't allowed it, I have to removed the receiver from off the account
