I believe 211 & 211K have a 1TB limit on HD.:)

Wrong believe. Actually you should use Search and find latest info.

For these of you who are not capable use Search with "211 EHD limit" keywords, here is the info: http://www.dbstalk.c...5&postcount=330 or http://www.dishuser.org/byodvr.php

IMHO.It might be better to buy from a Dish approved site so warranty and protection plan can cover the receiver once activated. Especially using the receiver in a portable way like this.

Just wanted to update that I received the receivers on time (despite having to truck around a train derailment). The receivers are brand new, and the only thing that I noticed pertaining to Intellian was a flyer enclosed in the box, which read:

"Congratulations on the purchase of your new Intellian/Dish Network marine satellite TV bundle. You are now ready to activate your new account. It's simple. Just call 866-726-xxxx.... Promo code: Intellian....Your representative will answer all of your questions regarding programming available, incentives and special offers that you are entitled to as an Intellian Preferred Subscriber." The Dish Network logo is at the bottom. I did not call that number, but instead called Dish.

I also got the external hard drive activated, and it works great! (I had read through the thread on the hard drives in this forum, so I believed the 1.5TB drive would work. It says I have 147 hours, 45 minutes of HD and 591 hours of SD recording available.

Fosterjaka, I'm not sure that Boater Barn isn't an authorized dealer for Dish, but your point is well taken. :)

I told DH that I would like to get one of those fancy Tailgaters, and he seems to think we will be just fine with the "portable" setup we already have (an antenna attached to a shortened railroad tie). At least no one is likely to run off with it. lol
