Does Dish 211z/Tailgater combo support high end (4k) TVs?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope I am stating this correctly. I plan to get a new 43" TV for our 5th-wheel. I subscribe to Dish and have a 211z receiver and a Tailgater antenna. Quite often I see an on-screen message to the effect the system is switching from HD to SD. It seems to usually occur when the sky is at least a bit cloudy. I assume that the clouds attenuate the signal enough that HD isn't possible. Regardless of whether my assumptions are correct, we often have to watch TV in SD. So, does that mean I should save my money and NOT pay for a new "4k" capable TV? That I should just get a lower-end TV because even if a 4k signal is present, my Dish system can't handle it? Or am I screwed up in my thinking? Thanks for any info.

When 4K programming becomes available,there will be a 4K Joey working with a Hopper to deliver it. So unless you plan on getting a Hopper in the future, which won't work with a Tailgater, then spending the extra for 4K wouldn't make much sense.


Unless you plan on getting a 4K Blu-Ray (or whatever technology) when they become available.
