Hello, Nick Franta with DISH Network Customer Service here.
The main difference between the 211 and 211k in terms of everyday usage would not be noticeable. The variation in model number is mainly used just in the type of equipment needed in the set up for installation.
If you have any further questions just let us know!

Hi jo_If,my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and if you want to reset your receiver unplugit for 10 seconds and plug it back in. It will power up and acquire the signaland download the program guide.

If the dish is a 1000.2 or 1000.4, these satellites are designed for MPEG 4 receivers (VIP 211) and will work fine with these dishes. The 1000 or 1000+ dishes require certain LNBs and/or switches to work properly - the LNBs will control how many receiver and satellites are included with the installation. I hope this helps.

Hi jesterr9 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network Executive Office. When you receiver is showing internal communication and keeps resetting the can be a couple different things making this happen. It may not have the current software downloaded as well it may have a bad smartcard inside as well. The current software as of 1/12/11 for the VIP 211 is L5.61. To find the current software press the MENU button two times.

Hello, my name is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. I'm sorry about any inconvenience, but the ViP211 is not a DVR receiver. If you have an external hard drive, you can activate the feature on the 211 to allow you to record movies to the external hard drive. It is a one time $40 to activate the external hard drive feature. Also, we can always look at getting a DVR receiver installed to replace the 211. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com.

Hi orly227217 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network customer service. And when the receiver is not accepting commands from the remote we need to re-program the remote to the receiver. What we do first is go to the VIP 211 and select the "system info" button and then we want to press the "menu" button. Then you will see the remote address in the white box at the bottom of the screen, then press and release sat button 1 time then press the record button 1 time. After that you will have seen the remote address change.
