Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. To answer your question, yes the ViP211 will work with a dish 500. It will receive the standard channels as you asked, but if you wish to get HD, the dish on your home will need to be upgraded. Hope this helps!

Hi Vicki,
You may call them at
  • CALL US 1-888-615-3725 for DISH
  • You can also try this steps:
  • MISSING OVER THE AIR CHANNELS The quality of reception and number of channels available depends on the antenna's placement and the customers location. Weather conditions may interfere with channel reception. The Channel Display receiver menu option may not be set correctly.
    1. Check Over-the-Air Antenna ConfigurationCheck that the wiring between your DISH receiver and your over-the-air antenna is configured properly using Setup OTA
    2. Reset ReceiverIf the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
      Please note: It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed.
    3. Rescan Over-the-Air Channels to ReceiverAccess "Local Channels" select "Scan Locals" then "Save".

Can I use a dish 500 dish with a VIP722K receiver Ilive In eastern Pa.


If you have a clear view of the south western sky, the receiver will receive most channels (after running a check switch test, menu, 6-1-1). You will not receive most HD (which comes on Eastern Arc satelllites not on that antenna, or on satellite 129, not on that antenna) and depending on your DMA you may not get locals, but most cable channels will be available, at least in Standard Definition.

Will a 7yr old dish receiver work today on dish satillite


With an antenna that is pointed correctly to satellites 110 and 119, the receiver will function, but will not have access to paid channels without authorization from DISH (which you can get by calling 1-800-333-3474). You may have to run a check switch test after connecting to antenna by accessing the menu, system set-up, installation, check switch.

My remote control only works for tv on & off and volume but not to change dish channel


I experienced this problem as well. I have a dual receiver and had issues turning channels on TV2; but counld easily access the volume. After reading the Dish manual, I learned that my TV1 and TV2 remotes connect through different signals (IR = infrared for TV1; and UHF= ultra-high frequency for TV2).

Check your remote to see if there is a UHF logo at the very bottom (under the Dish Network logo). The UHF remote sends ultra-high frequency radio signals to a UHF antenna which is connected to the back panel of the receiver. Make sure that you receiver is properly dusted and then check to make certain that the UHF antenna located on the back of the receiver is positioned straight-up. When the antenna is not correctly positioned it can cause problems with your remote signals.

Sharp Aquos LC 32G4U not receiving any channels-


Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,
