Hi, new here. I called DN last week the day of CES and ordered a Vip 211 (swapping for my 811). Somehow I got a CSR that knew what a 211 was. The box came from Denver and the shipping label said vip 211 dish promotion on it. So they have a stash of these receivers , but probable not enough to keep up with the demand. Well it got here yesterday and hooked it up. It has a slimmer profile, cool new menu and progamming screens, OTA signals seem to come in better (not all OTA channels are mapped though), have not checked out all of the features yet. The bad things are the remote is IR not UHF and SD pq is the same as the 811. (tried both HDMI and Component) HD is still good. MPEG-4 channels are not up yet, though advanced tech told me they may be up before FEB.1st.
