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.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper/XiP813 via HDMI & 360 via VGA to basement 42" Westy and both via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with an Apple TV, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Review. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.
