Also, you should be able to use them on a Pay-as-you-Go system (what we're using for our vacation home). We have our old ViP 211 & 211k receivers running the Flex Pack since May.

Probably because the user interfaces are different. It might confuse the user having two different ways of doing things....

Yeah, it's considered different receiver model families
I think it might be deeper than that. The 211 uses the old interface while the Wally uses the CUI. More than just the interface they are two different operating systems. Think Windows and Mac...

As “touched on” before: It’s a different software set. They what to phase out old ViP software. Cheaper that way.

Time marches on.
