The $10 DVR fee only covers the Hopper and each Joey is billed $7, is this correct?

You also should realize, any recordings on the EHD with the 211 will be lost once Dish takes this receiver off your account.

Can't he just keep the 211 as a tailgater until she has watched all her recorded programs and then cancel it from their account and return it to Dish?

This is probably what I would try to do anyway.

I believe you have to file for RV usage to keep a 211 on contract with Hopper/Joey system.

Unless he owns the 211 I do not think he can keep it on a Tailgater account. It's my understanding a leased receiver can not be on that account. With the end of Distants from Dish for RV's I don't know if that policy will change, or if it was related to that.

And just to make it clear, if you have one VIP DVR receiver and it is independently feeding two TV's now, then a Hopper system will cost $11 more to feed two TV's independently, and you are getting HD at both TV's and any other new features such as PTAT etc...
That $11 is the $4 whole home fee and the $7 Joey fee. The $4 whole home fee has been rolled into the DVR fee. The DVR fee is $6 on a VIP system.
