Since I've went to the Hopper and 3 Joeys, need to sort through what I want to do for the Motor Home.
Best option appears to be to go to the Tailgater and a 211k.
Some questions though.
I understand I pay in advance for when I need it.
I understand it will be a separate account due to my home set up.
I'm a little confused by what I read on the receiver saying you have to connect it at the house first to get it to download and set up. (Can't do this because of Hopper).
Here is what I keep seeing:
THE 211 RECEIVER MUST HAVE THE MOST CURRENT SOFTWARE DOWNLOADED TO WORK WITH THE TAILGATER, THUS YOU MUST HOOK IT UP TO YOU SYSTEM AT HOME FIRST. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DISH NETWORK ACCOUNT AND WANT US TO DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE, PLEASE CONTACT US VIA EMAIL OR PHONE AFTER PLACING ORDER.
Is this true no matter where you buy the 211 rcvr at?
Won't it download what it needs from the satellites when you set it up.
Trying to look on dish.com to sort through options, and not really clear.
Really just looking for the big 4 and ESPN more than anything else.
Other question I'm not quite sure about, is if I'm outside of the spot beam, can I call and just have them change my service Zip Code to where I'm at?
Might need a DIRT member to help answer these, but sure somebody has this set-up and can help.
