    Only when a hard drive attached and the receiver connected to a DPP or higher switch. At that point one can watch live while recording another channel.

    I think I have the 1000.4 set up, if I remember correctly. Whatever one in for the Western Arc.

    The 1000.2 is most commonly used for the western arc, but the 1000.2 and 1000.4 can both be equipped for either arc. Either one will work with a Wally with an EHD to activate both sat tuners.

    Thanks. At least I do have something with no fees I can upgrade to. I like the vip211k, but it might be nice to have something newer. In my case, what would be improvements in upgrading to the Wally? I already have the Roku/Firestick, where I can get Dish Anywhere and a zillion other apps.

    If you're not going to add an external HD to enable the dual sat tuners on a Wally, I'm not sure the Carbon GUI is worth doing the upgrade at this point.

    Yes, I am going to add the outboard HDD like I have on the vip211k. Will this give me two tuners like I have with the 211k?, the OTA guide via the module, as well as recording dual tuners at the same time?

    With an EHD, the Wally will give you two satellite tuners, and with the current USB OTA module, you'll also have two OTA tuners. The 211K only gives you one of each.

    I should correct that a bit. With an EHD and a DPP or DPH LNB, the Wally will have two sat tuners.
