Why MPEG-4?

Programs encoded using MPEG-4 do not take up as much bandwidth as those encoded using MPEG-2. As a result, we can provide more channels to

customers with the same amount of satellite bandwidth.

How does the ViP211 differ from the DISH 411?

They are essentially the same, but the ViP211 has an Ethernet port.

Can I watch analog or digital off-air broadcasts?

You can watch digital off-air broadcasts only1. The 411 does not have an analog NTSC tuner, but it can pass an analog signal through to your TV when the receiver is in standby (off).

Can I watch HD satellite channels using my SD outputs?

Yes, but they will be down converted to standard definition (480i).

How many Caller ID events will the 411 store?

It will store up to 50, but they will be deleted if the receiver is reset.

Can I use the USB 2.0 port2?

This port is currently disabled and is reserved for future use.

What’s the Ethernet port for?

This will be discussed in a future document revision.

What is the DISH Comm™ feature2?

DISH Comm is based on Home Plug 1.0 technology, which allows audio and phone data to be sent throughout a home over existing power wiring to other satellite receivers and compatible devices.

In a household with multiple DISH Comm-enabled receivers, only one receiver requires direct connection to a phone jack. All other receivers can transmit phone data over the power wiring to the receiver connected to the phone jack.

Other products are currently under development that use DISH Comm technology, such as allowing audio to be played in any room of the house with a power outlet.
