    HDMI Matrix switch compatible with DN receivers???

    I don't think I understand. I'm able to successfully get the HD DVD player, the WDTV Live and the PS3 to send video/audio to the projector through the HDMI switch and the Onkyo receiver. I only have problem with the vip722. And, remember that with my original vip722 my setup had worked...

    HDMI Matrix switch compatible with DN receivers???

    I was able to diagnose the problem. I had purchased a couple of HDMI cables with the built in ferite 'bulge' (not 100% sure that is correct) on either end of the cable. That is the type of cable I've been using with the 722 forever. Well, when I had the problem, I swapped one HDMI cable for...

    HDMI Matrix switch compatible with DN receivers???

    Yes, swapped HDMI cables, doesn't matter. Also, when I put the new switch into service today the VIP722 worked all day as I was checking output A on the switch. Then, when it got dark I started checking the projector side, output B. That's when I noticed no signal on the VIP722 output. The...

    HDMI Matrix switch compatible with DN receivers???

    I have one VIP722 feeding a JVC projector and a Samsung TV and have been using a matrix HDMI switch for at least 4 years. The switch went bad, I think, and took the HDMI port on the VIP722 with it. Replaced the receiver and bought another matrix HDMI switch and it is looking like the exact...

    Tennis channel??? Missing from all guides?

    Am I blind or did the Tennis channel disappear from DN??? Also, my 722 will not reliably record any OTA channels. Today, I had 4 programs scheduled to record. I only ended up with one recording. The other three simply disappeared from any record on my 722, no history or anything...

    vip722 and sling adapter

    Thanks fellas, it is not DOA. I can connect via ethernet fine. I can 'see' my recordings and live TV, some of the time, through the Dish Network website/sling interface. There is no option to watch content on the PC, only watch on TV. So, if I select a recording or live TV, the receiver...

    vip722 and sling adapter

    Is there a tutorial somewhere to get this working? I've contacted Dish numerous times w/o any luck. My receiver shows broadband connection ok. I log into DN website and click on the sling link in the menu and I get a no receiver connected issue. Sometimes, I do not see that problem and I...

    Dish deleting my HDPlatinum on 3/30???

    Has anybody else received this email from Dish? If so, what is the best way to get this resolved? In the email, Dish is claiming that HDPlatinum was a 3 month free promotion, but I've had it for years I think. What's going on here Dish?

    TV2 IR Converter Kit dish remote 1

    After you change the remote address for TV1 to 'anything but 1', all you have to do is relearn the commands with your Harmony. Will that work for you?

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    Update, received my TV2 IR Converter Kit... I have HD TV1 (main TV connected to VIP722 (non k model) via HDMI) and HD TV2 (120 feet away in bedroom connected to same VIP722 via Component (more on that later)). I didn't want to use DN UHF Pro 6.3 remote to control TV2 from the bedroom so...

    Update to my experiences with the DN TV2 IR Converter Kit... plus more

    Just thought I would post my experiences here (the old thread is too old to post in)... I have HD TV1 (main TV connected to VIP722 (non k model) via HDMI) and HD TV2 (120 feet away in bedroom connected to same VIP722 via Component (more on that later)). I didn't want to use DN UHF Pro 6.3...

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    Yes, I agree with Kevin. The one $48 device will allow you to control TV2 with your IR system from anywhere in your house on any TV, which is what you want/need. Sounds like you are like me, with plenty of money already invested in your system, an additional $48 didn't seem like so much to...

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    I am in the exact same boat as you! I've decided to go with the TV 2 IR Converter Kit from the DishStore. It was $39 with ~$8 shipping. I don't think you would need one for each TV but certainly for each dual tuner you wanted to access TV2 via IR.

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    I may be mistaken but I think that what DN means when they classify their remotes as UHF AND IR, they are referring to the ability of the remote to send IR signals to other devices, not their own equipment, at least certainly not the TV2 tuner on dual tuner receivers. The 722 can receive IR...

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    I've looked at that, there is a screw and I remove the screw but the 'chip-thingy' doesn't come out. I must be doing something wrong.

    vip722, TV2 (IR control?)

    Thx guys, picked one up for Claude here at the DishStore. I'm hoping there are instructions on how to 'teach' my learning IR remote. I'm a little bit fuzzy on that one. How does the 6.3 UHF Pro teach via IR... George
