Can I buy a seagate to DVR shows on my winegard T4 road trip with VIP211z boxes? I was told no way to DVR on these boxes.

Yes you can. If you haven’t already, there will be a 1 time $40 EHD activation fee to turn the non DVR into one, and there will be no monthly DVR fee that applies to this receiver. You cannot move the EHD to a DVR and watch whatever you record.

I would recommend getting a Wally instead, it has 2 tuners compared to just one in the 211z.

Gcorwin, that is correct. The VIP211Z's are non-DVR equipment. You are able to add the hard drive to the VIP211Z for a one time fee of $40 to have the ability to record while out on the road. Here is a link that will give you more information on the requirements needed for the drive: https://www.mydish.com/external-hard-drive.
