Dear Sir or Ma'am,

Unfortunately to utilize a DVR, it is required that you have current services through Dish Network. (I.e- Pay for programming.)
My suggestion is to call in directly to Dish Network and schedule a technician visit for your earliest convenience to get your services rolling.

Best of luck,
Dish Guy

You are not able to use the DVR unless you have Dish Network services. Cable operates at a different frequency than Dish Networks Dish Pro Plus Receivers.

Why wont my surround work with new Dish network dvr.


Hello,

When the DISH Network installed hooked up their DVR, did they connect it via HDMI? If so, then it could be a bad HDMI connection. I would bet they simply bypassed your receiver and went straight to the TV, which is why no audio comes out of your receiver. You can test this by turning on your DVR and TV. If you see picture with your receiver OFF, then they bypassed your receiver. You'll need to hook up and HDMI cable from the DVR into the receiver and then out of the receiver to the TV.

Same Place I got one from, Free DVR and setup with a contract. DirecTV was not as good and more expensive. Better Customer Service with Dish Network and the DVR is awesome, best one I have ever used. I sincerely recommend this system. Check them out.

I have surroundsound. I have dish network with hd dvr. I have a sony bravia hd tv. I have a dvd player, and cd player. I have a magnavox dvd recorder. I want to record from my dvr to my dvd recorder. ...


To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Network here. I know you've probably gotten this up and running by now but just for reference to anyone on this site. Any cabling or connectors used to carry signal to the receiver should be rated for 2,150 mhz if this is not the case you will typically get signal loss messages.

5shades690,

Are you still having problems with your TV 2 off the 625 receiver? You have a cable off the back of the receiver, TV 2 Home Distribution. That's feeding to your TV 2 location. You might check to make sure it is secure. You can also see if that cable screws into a diplexer if it is being back feed through the satellite cables. These are all potential problem spots, especially since you said it was working before. I hope this helps.

My Sanyo DVW-6100 does not work afterchanging to Dish Network


Sounds to me very much like the installer messed up. I would begin by confirming that there are absolutely no cables to the Sanyo, which if you checked the back is unlikely. I have never seen connections anywhere but teh front and back of anything other that a TV or game system. Once you are confident that the system is not connected, contact his company and inform them that he failed to hook that piece of equipment back up. It is their responsibility to make sure that it gets done.

TIVO HD DVR


OK, I had Dish network come out and install DVR HD. Had pixel des torsion viewing everything I recorded. They came out 3 time and replace DVR and check everything 3 time with no improvement. I had them remove everything.
I called Direct tv and they did the same thing. installed there dish and cables and DVR. Same problems. My question is? Is this the nature of this equipment or is there something they are missing.

Lines on TV with DVR-625


try using a better cable from the receiver to the tv. sometimes less expensive cables dont "ground " as well as they should after a few years. the more shielding the better. the cable here will sell you the cable much cheaper then going to any store and its better quality, even if your not a customer of cable.
hope this helps
