i want to view live tv on my ipad and wondered if i get a sling what receivers does it need to work, can i use it with a vp211 stand alone box or do i need a vp222 that has the antenna for another room? thanks for any insite.
The Sling adapter will only work with a 722, 722k and Hopper. The 922 has built-in sling as well

IF you want Sling on a non-adapter-supported model, like a 211 for example, then you certainly can buy a standalone Slingbox... but I believe you would also have to purchase the Sling app from the app store... The Dish Remote Access app doesn't work with a Slingbox last time I checked.

so it will work on either of these the 722 or 722k or the hopper ? i don't need all three correct? sorry new to me , thanks
You would only need one (722, 722k, or the Hopper) with an internet connection to be able to use the Sling Adapter. The Sling Adapter will not work with the ViP922 as it already has Sling technology built in.

SlingTV, Tablo and Plex to Roku 3s and Chromecasts on a Vizio 42" in the living room and a Toshiba 32" in my bedroom. Xbox 360 client on a Westinghouse 42" in the game room. Tablets EVERYWHERE!
I used to update the Dish Network FAQ but not anymore.
