    I have a 722k and want to add an used 211 in the basement. I got the 211 from the yard sale and is not activated. I suppose that I can connect the 211 directly to the LNB, right? The 211 has a OTA port too, how does it work? And how to activate the 211? How much more I need to pay to have 2nd receiver? Thanks.

    $7 per month

    Yes you can connect directly to the dish if you have a free port

    Connect an ota antenna to the ota antenna jack on the 211 and scan for locals

    Call dish to activate

    After you have it connected to the dish, call DISH and give them the S# and R# so they can address the receiver. Cost of additional 211 is $7/mo.

    - you can connect coaxes from LNBF and OTA
    - call CSR
    - $7

    cross your fingers, the box could have a balance or stolen

    If you get it successfully installed and activated you can also make it into a DVR (of sorts) by adding an external hard drive.

    it will cost you one time fee $40 and you must supply your own HDD (up to 2 TB) and USB 2.0 enclosure.

    If you have the wiring already in place the entire process of attaching it and calling it should not take much more than a 30 to 45 minutes. Pretty painless, unless you get a CSR that does not understand you and tried to schedule an appointment, as I had once. She kept insisting that I needed to have a tech come out to run the wire and setup the receiver. I finally had to ask for someone that understood ME!

    I can check the availability of the receiver to add to your account. Please PM the receiver number to me if you would like me to check. As mentioned in a later post, if there is a balance or if the receiver was leased, you won't be able to add this receiver to your account. Please let me know. Thanks.
