I have a Hopper 3 and fixed dish at home and purchased a VIP211z paired with a Tailgater for use with my RV. I mainly use the VIP211z at my property and have an old Dish 1000 dish with a DP Plus triple head that is pole mounted. I would prefer to use the VIP211z with the pole mounted dish for ease but am having issues aligning it. I spoke with Dish and they wanted me to create a second account and have a technician come out and align the dish. I see where they are coming from but since I am not using both receivers at the same time it doesn't totally make sense. Is there a trick to aligning and setting up the VIP211z with my OLD Dish 100 dish? What is the easiest way to get reception on all 3 satellites (I am only really interested in the HD English channels)? What dish do I choose (superdish?) and should I select a specific transponder? Thanks in advance!
