    I have a DP311 receiver. Can I make it wireless using a co-ax to HDMI adaptor and an HDMI wireless sender? I'm trying to connect a 5 year old flat screen wirelessly.

    311 is SD and I assume your flat screen is HD why not just switch to Hopper/Joey?

    There are all sorts of wireless solutions that use the composite outputs of the 311. They aren't widely available as people are no longer interested but if you search Amazon for "wireless tv extender", you can find several in the $40-60 range..

    You CANNOT economically get from modulated NTSC RF or composite to HDMI.

    Thanks, Harsh! That's exactly what I was hoping to find. Problem solved!

    The Hopper Duo is low cost compared to Hopper3 and even better is the Wally. You might get a free upgrade on the Wally and it has 2 tuners if you connect a Hard drive.

    The other good reason is DISH is discontinuing all the VIP receivers except the 211 series. The Wally also has a UHF remote.

    Call CSR, perhaps they would exchange your old 311 to 211/k/z/wally for free
