Last year I got (2) Dish VIP211Z's plus a Vuqube Flex Antenna for our RV. We have Cable at home. I am considering making the move to Dish for both home and RV. I called Dish to inquiry and the first thing they want to do was to sign me up for a 24 month contract with all new equipment. They push, push, push,! First I'd like some information please. So here are the questions I'm looking for answers to: 1) What kind of home antenna do I need to use the VIP211Z's (or any future equipment) with? 2) How hard is it to lock in the position of a home antenna? 3) What meter should I buy to set it? 4) Has anyone added a hard drive to one to one of these VIP211Z units to record programing? 5) Since we may want to go to a full internal DVR what is the most current model and can it be bought outright? And where is the best place to go to get equipment? 6) Are the three Satellites 110, 119, 129 the only main "Dish" satellites I need to get SD and HD on the home system? 7) Should I get a bundle of equipment and service from Dish why or why not? Thanks in advance for looking at this post and sharing your thoughts. I'm kind of tired of cable. We have in some cases several channels with the same programing on and the selection is not real great. Plus the cost is rising faster than I can keep up with. I do not watch much broadcast network entertainment (ABC, NBC, CBS). I watch mostly things like the Discovery Channel, Science Channel.
