Equipment: ViP722k DVR-HD (R01)
Receiver CA ID: R01 XXXX XXXX-20
Smart Card CA ID: S19 XXXX XXXX-19
Software Version: L652
Router: Linksys WRT54G Wireless G (hard wired)
ISP: Comcast
Phone: None
Customer Type: Direct DISH Customer (Non-Bundled)
Issue: DISH Remote Access web page registers Vip722k DVR-HD (R01) as "Offline" while the on screen menu confirms unit is "Online".

I've been dealing with this issues since my initial install on 7/18/2008. After blasting off several angry emails this past Friday, I received multiple responses this morning acknowledging the fact that this is indeed a software issue at DISH that affects users with the ViP722k DVR (R01) and NOT an ISP issue. I’ll be waiting on them now to fix it and will post again when/if resolved. See below for copy of the email thread with DISH responses.

BxxxxVxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx : DISH Remote Access web page says my 722K DVR is "Offline" but the on screen menu says it is "Online". I am finding allot o chatter online that the 722k DVRs that begin with a serial number of "R01" (which mine is) has issues with the DISH Remote Access website. I've spent nearly an hour on the phone with a DISH rep already with no insight to the cause or a solution. I've been cut off by Jxxxxxx P during an online chat a few minutes ago claiming I was unresponsive which is not true. She didn't even give me enough time to type in my 16 digit account number. I am really getting aggravated with your service and support. I am not even close to being %100 satisfied. You advertise these great features that do not work! I will cancel my service for Direct TV and tell all my online friends and fans why, if someone does not rectify this ongoing complaint.

Sincerely,

Bxxxx Vxxxxxxxxxxxx
BTW: I do not have any online fans and few friends but I have heard a comedian use the approach on "glamazon.com" with great affect : )
PROBLEM SOLVED!!!! 10 minutes after posting the reply above DISH Remote Access on my ViP722k DVR-HD (R01) is working with Software Version L652

works now!

I just went to the Dish remote access, where it had shown my receiver was offline, now takes me to the Dish Sling page.

I guess they got the R01 receiver thing figured out now...

I could get to the Sling site before but not through my Dish account page.
