we do not have dish service at all...for those that have it already how easy is it to set up and call in for activation with no previous service? anything we should know of? thinking we will set it up at home and call in to activate before we get to our seaonal site...we don't get good cell signal to call ...sound like the right thing to do?

I activated my from a campground without a problem, but doing it at home would have advantages. Just stick it outside, run the RG6 into the house and into your 211, run HDMI if you want to be sure the HD is good, or coax for SD if you aren't worried, call 800-333-DISH and activate. They require a physical address to activate local stations. Keep that in mind when you travel into another area and want their local stations. Again, just call, tell them you want locals in your current location, and in a few minutes it's done. We had the Hopper installed in the home Sunday and while there the tech told me if I purchased the 211 rather than leasing it as I do, DISH will shut off charges for it and restart without charge. However, since it's just $7 monthly in our total plan, I won't do that. But if you have cable or home service other than DISH, that's a possibility as you'd save the whole subscription charge while it's not in use.
