To fully test the unit you would need to have a DISH subscription. However you can do a simple test to see if it can find satellites.
IN THIS ORDER:
Turn ON the TV
Turn ON the VIP211K
Turn ON the Tracvision Antenna
See if it automatically runs a setup routine, and then says it's loading the program guide. This will take several minutes to complete.
Or it might say that the 211K is not authorized.
Anyway use the DISH remote, select MENU, then option 6, then option 1, then option 1 again.
This will bring you to the signal strength screen.
Using the DISH remote set the system for DISH 500, use the dish remote to move to the satellite selector and arrow up/down to select sat 119, and see if the antenna will move to find it and show a signal strength green reading.
If it does the above it probably works.
