    can't move PTAT shows to external?

    My original Hopper (installed in the first week it was available to customers) is dying - keeps stuttering/freezing, originally started with just the Joeys then the main receiver too. Dish is replacing it (arriving today) and I've been trying to get everything moved off to an external drive but...

    Migrating from 722 to Hopper

    I want to get my Hopper installed ASAP and I'm wondering how I can migrate my current recordings to the Hopper. Can I just plug in an EHD (I don't usually use one), move the programming over, then copy it back to the Hopper once the install is done? I'd rather not use an EHD permanently if I...

    Hopper/Joey IR?

    Reading through the specs it looks like both the Joey and Hopper use UHF remotes, do we know if they both support IR as well? I'm a long-time Harmony user and would be upset if I couldn't continue to use the Harmony in my living room (direct IR to the 722) and upstairs (using the TV2IR...

    New Sling Adapter/DishOnline.com message

    Today when I try to play anything from my DVR through DishOnline I'm seeing this message - "Your retail Slingbox is not compatible with Dish Remote Access (Error 27)(27)." I don't have a retail slingbox (well I do, but not on this receiver), I have a Sling Adapter connected to my 722. As...

    Dish Online TCP ports

    Does anyone know which ports the 722 and 222 would use for Dish Online? I've read in a few places that 5101 and 5102 are used by the 722 but that must be dynamic otherwise what happens if you have 2 x 722s?? I know the receivers will usually use uPnP to open the right ports but the Dish...

    Slingbox on 222 through DishOnline?

    Hi guys, I have an old slingbox pro that I currently have connected to my 722, but I just ordered a sling adapter to take advantage of the rebate. I'd like to keep the old slingbox connected and use it on my 222 but for some reason my 222 always shows as "offline" even though it's hard-wired...

    722 loses audio for 10-15 seconds

    My 722 has recently started losing audio at random intervals for 10-15 seconds at a time. It happens on both tuner 1 (HDMI to TV) and tuner 2 (backfed coax) so it's not TV specific. I've tried soft and hard resets and I'm not sure what else to try. I'm on the service plan so could probably...

    The iPad app, 222 and Slingbox Pro

    ok, so a little background :) I was given a Slingbox Pro by a friend who upgraded to a 922. I have it connected to my 222 on tuner 1 which was dedicated to my HTPC but is now just for the Slingbox. It works great using the SlingPlayer software and the $30 Sling iPhone app, but the quality is...

    722 keeps disconneting from dishonline

    My 722 is acting weird. I have it connect to my router, with a reserved dhcp address. If I go into the system menu and reset the network connection, I can connect to it with dish online or the iPhone app, but then I'll try again later (a few hours or so) and it not connect, and I'll have to...

    DishOnline "connect a slingbox"

    Hey guys, I have a 722 and a Slingbox Pro. The Slingbox works fine through the Sling Player desktop app. Signing in to DishOnline in the My Account section there is a "connect a slingbox" option. It prompts for my sling account details, but when I click "submit" nothing happens, it just sits...

    BBC HD needs a 3rd dish??

    ok, I'm a little behind the times and only just realized that Dish Network now has BBC America in HD. I noticed I wasn't getting that channel, so I contacted Dish Network and they're saying I need a 3rd dish in order to receive that channel. What's the deal? Is there any way to do this...

    722 problem(s)

    Hi guys, A couple of days ago it looks like Dish pushed out a software update for my 722, because pressing the guide button twice now brings up a menu instead of cycling through the favorites lists. However, this isn't the problem - the problem is that every the box reboots at night, it's...

    722 shows channel but 222 doesn't

    Hi guys, A couple of weeks ago I added HBO (for True Blood) and on my primary 722 all of the channels work fine. However, on my 222 I am missing channel 308 (HBOZ), it just doesn't appear on the guide and I can't tune to it. Both of the receivers are in dual mode, and both tuners on the 222...

    Force a recording onto a specific tuner

    I'm sure this must be simple but I can't find it. I have a 722 and when I schedule recordings, they automatically go to tuner 2. This is fine unless I happen to be in bed watching tuner 2 when a recording happens. Is there any way to force a recording to a specific tuner so that it won't...

    ViP 722 audio settings

    Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with my new 722. When viewing tuner 2 via coax backfeed on channel 65, the audio seems to fade in and out especially when loud music is playing during movies etc. It's not a huge problem, just a little annoying but I'm wondering if there are any settings I'm...

    Dish ViP 222 no picture?

    I'm brand new to Dish Network, I have a ViP 722 that's working perfectly and a ViP 222 in dual mode that's causing me problems. Tuner 2 on the 222 is working fine, it's a backfeed into my home cable and outputs to a 2nd floor TV. Tuner 1 is putting out audio and things like the guide, menu etc...
