It's been a long time coming, but only a week after being made official, a tipster lets us know DISH Network subscribers with a ViP 211 receiver are now able t.
The 211z is a hd non dvr. You won"t be able to watch recordings from another receiver on it. If you activated the DVR feature, you can connect and external EHD to it, and record to that. To activate that, there is a one time $40 fee. Also, even if you do this, the VOD feature is not available at all on a non dvr receiver.
The VIP 211K is compatible with Dish Network HDTV service. Works on most new Dish Network satellite antennas designed for Dish Network TV.

My 2nd Dish TV thread. My HD upgrade [tow vehicle and TV] involved a new Vip211z receiver from Dish. Doing some reading on other forums, I found out you can change the 211z into a DVR by simply
Hopper and Joey (HD-DVR) ViP 722k (HD-DVR, Dual) ViP 612 (HD-DVR Solo) ViP 922 (HD-DVR Sling) ViP 222k (HD, Dual) ViP 211k (HD, Solo) 625 (SD-DVR, Dual) 512 (SD-DVR, Solo) 322 (SD, Dual) 311 (SD, Solo)
Well, I tried calling a different tech. Same result. This tech seems to think that there might be a problem with the drive. However, the previous tech had already arranged to ship a 211z. So, I'm going to disconnect the drive and wait for that receiver. Thanks again for the dialog/input.

The real beauty of Dish or Direct is that you can get a receiver for your RV or Mtn cabin or whatever and not pay for a separate service like you would with cable. An extra receiver with Dish is $7/month. The 211z with the EHD adds DVR for no extra charge. I"m pretty much a TV addict and like to keep up w/ the Nascar races and Ducks football.

Just in case it helps anyone, I have been looking for an external drive for my ViP211z receiver that does not require an external power supply (Dish documentation on the subject varies, sometimes saying that an external power supply for the drive is required and sometimes saying "recommended.") This is because different self-powered drives draw different amounts of power from the USB jack and Dish probably doesn"t want to try to support problems related to this issue so they just say "use an external supply", however I wanted to avoid the extra wires and connections if possible. Anyway, just wanted to note that I have been using a WD My Passport Ultra (1 TB) self-powered drive with my ViP211z and it has been working perfectly. They are available at any Walmart. Just fyi for anyone interested.
