    Since I still have my Vip211k, any idea how long Dish will continue to authorize them? Either the one I am continuing to use, but if I bought a reconditioned backup, would it be worth it? I found one on Ebay for $40 recently. It is just a thought. I am still reluctant to upgrade until I am forced to.
    Thanks.

    You are aware of the caveats of buying a receiver from an unknown source. Check the Serial Number with Dish to make sure it is not a leased receiver and can't be transferred.

    Yes, I knew that. But I was just wondering if buying an extra back up receiver would be worth it? $40 plus shipping is not a bad price. But who knows when Dish will drop a line giving a time when all receivers from that era will have to be updated to newer ones.
