Have you received a response to your question yet? You can have 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys. The 211k can be used on a Hopper account with an RV or Tailgater. Here is a link with information about our promotions: http://www.dish.com/entertainment/packages/?WT.svl=package-button Our dishes are 1000.2 for Western Arc and 1000.4 for Eastern Arc installations. The Hoppers use a single Node for 1 Hopper or a dual Node for multiple Hoppers for integration purposes. You should not need a switch. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.
