How to download update software to dish vip211k

I am not a home Dish user, I have a vip211k hooked to a Winegard Carryout Answer for my RV. MY receiver has been activated, but how do you download current software for the receiver? There is no phone line ine the RV and the Winegard dish can't be pointed until you have the correct software!

I saw your post and I'm wondering if you are still having problems with the 322 receiver. Do you know the software version of the receiver? We do not require the phone line connection anymore. You can check the software version by pressing the menu button on your remote twice. The fifth line from the top will give you the software version. It should be L4.85. I hope this helps.

    SOURCE: dish network vip211k stalls at check switch, cannot clear off old dish info


    I can understand the frustration. The check switch test can take awhile, so it may appear as though it has stalled. If it makes no progress after 5 minutes, then unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug it back in. If it continues, let me know!

    Vip211k skiping some recordings

    Hey silva_juanc,

    There can be a few reasons for recordings/timers to skip. To verify the exact cause enter the Daily Schedule and from there select the timer that didn't go off. It should give you a status with more information on what happened.

    If you have any other questions you can post them here, or email me directly at

    My gm-1518 sounds like it is lining up on a satellite, but my receiver shows no satellites picked up. It has worked perfectly the last time I used it (July 4th week). Do you have any solutions to this...

    This problem is a software glitch affecting 301, 311 receivers and the 5xx series DVRs. Even though the manual says not to, the solution is to select "Superdish" and "Alternate Dish" before doing a check switch.

    My vip211k receiver will not stay comes opn momentarily then shuts off.Please advise

    Bypass that surgeprotector, if one, try another outlet, if that does not work, call Dishnetwork to have it replaced. If under warrantee, you are covered if not, add the service plan, $6 a month and you are covered, free!
