    I have a new VP211 that Dish TV says is not compatible with the new Hybrid system. Can anyone please tell me what dish (DishTV or DirectTV) I can use with the VIP211? Thanks

    Dish WILL NOT WORK DirecTv Satellites. A Dish 1000.2 East ARC or Dish 1000.2 West ARC

    VIP211, Vip211K & VIP211Z will work with any DISH LNB except the HYBRID.

    Ok - tell use which satellites your Hopper3 is seeing. From there, we can tell you what to get / install so your 211 can work.

    If the Hopper3 is seeing 61.5 and 72 - You'll need an Eastern Arc 1000.2. (2 lnb)

    If the Hopper3 is seeing 110, 119 and 129, you'll need a 1000.2 Western Arc Dish / LNB.

    In both cases - you need to put up a 2nd dish for your 211 to work. Unless you're using the 211 for an RV, Dish may not let you activate it, so that would be nice to know as well.

    How do you tell if you have a hybrid LNB by looking at it? I have one in my hand that says DP plus digital LNBF on it that I am hoping to use with a 211z.

    I don't see TS have it in his first post here nor in his profile. So, we will skip your route for now.

    If you have a Hopper 3 you have a hybrid LNB.

    The 211k will work with the hybrid LNB and Hybrid solo hub. Its my setup currently after taking the H3 out.

    I understand that much. I'm not using the same dish as our Hopper is on. I have purchased a 2nd dish to mount on the garage to use 211z's both there and on our patio. This new dish came with a LNB labeled DP plus which I'm hoping is ok for the 211z's.

    For folks out there who may want to downgrade, lets say get away from $15 dvr fee with 211K and EHD from H3 there is no need to swap the hybrid LNB or hub out. The compatibility issue isn't with the hybrid equipment its with the H3. The 211K works just fine with the new Hybrid system as long as the H3 is out of the picture.

    The DP Plus LNB will work fine with your 211z with no additional equipment needed. Just connect one of the output ports (NOT the 4th input port, if it has one) to the 211z sat port. The 211 series will work with most Dish LNB's, including even the single satellite 300 dish version.

    H3 seems to be the only Hopper DISH is restricting to one per account.

    As RBA said, the H3 is the only Hopper with the restriction. Instead, we have two Hopper w/Slings (H2's), and when we're at our upstate NY cottage, they're both connected to a single 1000.4 eastern arc DPP LNB using a Duo Node instead of a Solo Node. The Hopper that travels with us in our RV is connected to a portable 1000.4 using a Solo Node.
