In the Stone Age

So I guess I need to buy something .. questions
- if I get a dvr model (vip612) do I have to pay extra $$/month
- if I get a non-dvr model (vip211) are there external devices that will work (still without extra cost/month)
- I have Dish 500 ... will I need new lnb for the dish and which ones. Just a simple swap with the old ones??
Sorry for all the ignorance. I just want to watch Mad Men when it starts up again .. hahahaa
PS - if you know what part of the 6000 I need to smack to get it working again that info is also appreciated

I guess I will go with the vip211 as I see you can hook up a dvr later for $40 activation .. I can live with that.
So lastly I still need help on the LNB issue: do I need to change; which model for the Dish 500; is it simple swap out??

I spoke to them and they wanted to get me in a lease which in the long run would cost me more. So my question on the LNBs remain.

so the question remains whether my legacy lnbs on my dish 500 will work with the vip211 or I have to change them.
