Yeah, for $5, sure ...
I called Dish, they agreed to replace my (owned) 508 with another receiver that I will also own. After I told them I would not sign into a 24 month contract, they would only offer me a Solo ViP 211k. I can live with DVR in the camper.
It will work on all satellites.
I can turn it off when ever I want.
It's $3.00 cheaper per month then the 508.
If I put an HD TV in the camper I will already have a HD receiver.
locals will be letter box (on SD TV) if I aim at 72/61.5.
IR remote only (UHF remotes can be a problem in crowded campgrounds anyway )
Also they said I can sell the 508 if I want to.
thanks for the help everyone. The receiver should be here this week. I can activate it on my EA/DPP44 at home, then take it to the RV next weekend and setup the dish.
You missed one good feature - for $40 one time fee, you can convert it to DVR !
