Question about DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Problem with recorded playback

Almost all the shows that I have recorded show recording for the correct time. but as soon as i start watching it the digital picture is constantly crackling and has pixelation and distortion and suddenly stops and shows 0 minutes left. i often get a window that shows recording lost due to signal loss... sometimes that does not appear but the same problem occurs. While watching live i don't seem to have pixelation distortion problems. I do watch and record almost 8hours minimum daily and have used this 625 for 18 months approx. it was a refurb piece to begin with.Do you think it could be a problem with the hard drive or the cables?

It is possible that during a set time of day this problem can occur due to aged hardware such as a barrel or the LNB becoming overheated during that time of the day. If you are home during that timeframe and the weather is consistent and the problem does not exist then I would order a replacement receiver.Dish has some new receivers that allow one to use an external hard drive to increase record capacity as well however they are HD receivers. Currently Dish has a shortage due to production in the 625 model and you may be able to get a 722 rx with 300hrs of record time and external hard drive capability at no additional cost to you do to inventory shortages. If you do opt to get a new rx and get an HD model Dish shoud waive the HD fee for not having HD programming due to this. The key to getting this free upgrade if you will is not to ask for the 722. Let Dish's inventory dictate that unless you just want to upgrade your system in which case ther may or may not be additional charges. Hope this helps you out.

TV responds to on-off, channel & volume changing buttons, but nothing else on remote. Screen is dark, but the station and show listing appear at bottom. Sound of show works, but no picture.


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

Just bought a new smart tv and my panasonic recorder keeps saying not connected - why


Usually this message is because there is no direct connection between the recorder and the TV!

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,

Lock message


Hi!
My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!


Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!
