    vip722 will not record OTA

    I tried these ideas, and it didn't work. One of the shows we were set up to record last night was Scandal. When 8:00 came and went, we looked at the DVR and there was no red light. We turned it on and took a look, and it showed that it was recording. But there was no recording in our list of...

    vip722 will not record OTA

    Thanks. I'll give these ideas a try. My wife did say that some of the programs are recording, and some of them are only recording parts.

    vip722 will not record OTA

    I have had a vip722 for a few years now, and it has a nice OTA antenna attached. On all of the channels that I record OTA, the signal is always between 90 and 100%. I noticed a week or so ago that some of my shows were not recording. If I go into history, it says that the show was recorded...

    Major guide issues on one of two vip722 receivers

    I got home tonight and turned on my downstairs receiver. It had no guide information available. So I did the standard check switch and let it download my guide info (appeared to be successful). Now sometimes it is showing guide info and sometimes not. Also, though all of my dish passes still...

    Does Dish own any satellites that aren't old? I've heard the same thing about 129.

    Southeastern sky

    Hi, I live near Chicago. I have a Dish 1000 pointing toward the southwest. My signal for all my local channels and pretty much anything else HD hovers around 45. I've had Dish out a couple of times to try and get it adjusted, because any time we get any kind of clouds with height to the SW...

    Special requirements for vip722k OTA

    Really? I gotta admit, that would be cool. Let me ask this. Is this something that can be used with the older 722, or is it only for use on the 722k?

    Special requirements for vip722k OTA

    No kidding? How does that work? I'm using two tuners through Dish right now, so that I can record two shows at once. How much does it cost? I can't believe that Dish would do that. Well, I guess that I can, actually. Anything to make an extra buck.

    Special requirements for vip722k OTA

    Hi, I've been running OTA with an indoor antenna on my 1 year old vip722 for about 8 months now with no problems. I decided to set up OTA on my new vip722k this afternoon. When I went to attach the antenna coax to the DVR, there was no connector where there is one on the older vip722. So I...

    Suddenly strange issues on 1 year old vip722

    Hi, Last night while watching TV, I started to get the message that my receiver lost the signal. But it was a perfectly clear night and my upstairs receiver was just fine. Every time I pressed the guide button or menu button, the picture would come back and then go out five or ten seconds...

    Dish 722k - Lots of problems

    I did try moving the tv back a little bit, but had no luck. I wish that I had a little more room to play with. I will see if I can pull the receiver forward a bit.

    Dish 722k - Lots of problems

    Unfortunately there is no antenna for tv1. TV1 is IR, I think. TV2 seems to work fine, but as I have a harmony remote that only does IR, I am kind of stuck with IR. Does anyone know of any ways to minimize or deflect the IR signal from the tv. I was thinking about tin foil, but I don't know...

    Dish 722k - Lots of problems

    Well, the responsiveness issue appears to be because of my TV. I have a Samsung A750. The last two times that the receiver has gone unresponsive, I shut off the TV and then changed the channel on the receiver. Both times, it worked perfectly. I'm not sure what I can do about this. I never...

    I was watching a recorded show. Not live TV.

    Dish 722k - Lots of problems

    I started from the beginning of the show, watched a few minutes, and then wanted to rewind a little to see something again. But it wouldn't let me. Each time I tried, it would let me rewind, but only to the same certain point. I had to start the show all over again and watch to the point that...

    Dish 722k - Lots of problems

    Hi, I've had a new Dish 722k for about a week and a half now. It's been nothing but problems. Often it doesn't respond to the remote control. Sometimes it does. It's quite sporadic. Also, there have been a number of times where I haven't been able to rewind past a certain point in a show...

    vip722k remote issues

    This has nothing to do with the Harmony remote. I probably shouldn't have thrown in that information about the harmony remote. This is happening with the remote that came with the DVR AND the harmony remote. Both are acting in exactly the same fashion. So ignoring the harmony, I still have...

    vip722k remote issues

    Hi, I've only had this DVR for about a week. The remote was working fine for it. Now all of a sudden, once I turn off the DVR with the remote, I cannot turn it back on. I have to go to the DVR and press either the power button or the select button. Sometimes when I press the select button on...

    dish.sling.com - unable to register DVR

    :) I can't get it set up. That's the problem I'm having. I guess it's not all that important. Life is too short for dealing with stupid computers.
