    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

    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?

    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...

    I have a vip722 and the URC RF20 system with Power Blaster IR control. Is there any way that I can control TV2, normally controlled by DN 6.3 IR/UHF Pro remote, using my URC IR/UHF remote? Thx, George

    722 OTA tuner vs. stand alone OTA tuner

    I have the vip722 and a small Radio Shack UHF antenna in the attic. I have two feeds coming off the antenna (two of those little flat antenna wire to coax converters). The run to both my 722 and to my internal PCI-x PC tuner are very close to exactly the same length. My 722 cuts out a lot...

    vip722 does not record buffer

    I just noticed that my vip722 does not record the buffer like my other receivers have in the past. Example, watching a show and after about 30 minutes or so I decide to record the entire show. In the past with my 501, 510, 622(?), I could skip backwards and start the recording and it would...

    Nashville HD Local Networks down for over a week now???

    As the title says, my Nashville HD local networks, ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX have been off the air for over a week now. Calls to DN result in, 'huh?'. Email to CEO also elicited a phone call with the same 'huh?'. What's weird is whenever I try to select one of those channels, I get a looking...

    Lew 610 software and 722 record issues...

    My 722 has received the latest 610(?) software and now almost on every recording, I get loss of signal even though there should be no loss of signal. I had a very little bit of trouble with off the air recordings previous to the latest software download, but never on sat channels and only...

    For the last couple of weeks, Fox HD channel 6343 has been having a problem where any on screen movement, either camera or action, causes a 'tear' in the image. This tear is horizontal all the way across and half way between the top and bottom of the screen where the top part of the image...

    622 has name based recording correct?

    If the 622 does indeed have name based recording, why do they insist on starting 1 minute early and end 3 minutes late AND record sporting events for an additional 60 minutes??? Now, I know you can change the 1 minute early and 3 minute late setting, but it has already gotten old and I've...

    You call this an install?

    Had a 12-5 install window. Tech called at 8:30 that morning asking if he could come right away, I of course say sure. He shows up at 11:00 with D1000 and DPP44. Takes down my SW64, takes down my main 500 (pointing at 110 and 119) and puts up the D1000, peaks 129 I guess using 43/121 instead...
