We have dropped DirectTv after 30 years of service and I am installing Dish in our RV. I purchased a conversion kit from Wineguard for the roof mounted sat dish. Now I have to install two 211z's in our coach. The DirectTv receivers had three threaded cable hookups on each one and the 211z has one HDMI out put coming out of the back. I know that it has to go to the splitter box but I believe it also has the threaded couplings not an HDMI input. Is there a way to make these receivers work in our unit?

Exactly what do you have for equipment, what are you trying to connect to?

If you want a coax RF output to connect to your TV or switch box, because they don't support HDMI, you'll need to add a component level modulator that outputs an RF signal on channel 3 or 4. Walmart, Amazon, etc, have them for less then $20 usually. If you want to connect your OTA antenna to the 211z, you'll need a Dish USB OTA adapter available on Amazon, eBay, etc. Then, if you want limited DVR capability, you can also add an external USB hard drive and have Dish activate it for a one time fee. The 211K model that preceded the 211z had all but the EHD built in.

Composite connections not component connections
