The receiver is more than likely in single mode. Go to the receiver and ensure the green and blue lights are both on. If not press the door on the right of the receiver and press the mode button until the amber light illuminates closest to the green light. If it will not do this you can press the front panel power button and see if that will allow you to be able to do so , if not try unplugging the unit from the electrical receptacle for thirty seconds and try again. if these fail you will need a service call to have the receiver replaced.

As for the other receiver recording on all four tv's I can not answer that as I do not know the cabling system at your home and whether there are switches etc. It is really an issue that needs to be addressed with more specifics as to all hardware in the system or dealt with by a technician.

I will be more than happy to troublleshoot this for you if you can tell me the other receiver type and if there are any switches in the system and what type of dish you have e.g. 1000.2, Super Dish, or a two dish solution.
Hope to hear from you soon.

SOURCE: I want to record shows

The dvr , of which model you haven't said it, doesn't care where it is and what program is set to record; all it cares is to be connected to a source of signal and, if necessary, to be tuned to the channel in question.
So, if your dvr doesn't have 2 tuners or even a single correct/sattelite one , it will have to be connected directly to the receiver that receives the program you want to record - the one on the bedroom.

My dvr worked fine for several months and then all of sudden it stopped recording Could it be that the hard drive just stopped recording because of failure?


Hi there,
the HDD is a common component to fail in a DVR.
The DVR Itself should actually tell you the status of the storage device if you navigate the menu.

I could probably assist you remotely to find out if you like?

Can't get my 21 1 ir/uhf pro remote to work with dish network dvr 625


If you are attempting to program it to tv-2 on a 625 receiver it has to be set to a odd number for example number 7 instead of 2 or 6.
The reason for this is that the 625 receiver only supports band A frequencies for UHF and on a 21.x remote odd numbers are A band and even numbers are B band.

Dish Network remote and receiver problem


Hi Tracy, my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. With the TV2 remote working for both TVs, you will want to make sure the TV1 input on the receiver is connected to the TV cable (RCA or Coax cable) and TV2 input is connected to TV2 port on the back of the receiver. I will provide you our link explaining in more detail about connections. If you have any further questions I will provide you my e-mail; michael.ouston@dish.com. Here is the link I promised you: http://www.mydish.com/support/same-video-2-tvs

I have direct tv dvr my remote wont work,but remote works on my other recivers,has the ir gone bad and can it be fixed


Hi,

It's possible that the IR receiver in the DVR has failed. It's unlikely to be the remote as it works with other devices. If the remote was working with the DVR before, then in most cases the problem can be corrected by resetting the DVR as follows:

Press the RED RESET BUTTON behind the access card panel on the front of the DVR. Wait for the program guide information to update then try the remote again.

Try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,

My dish DVR HD control doesn't work


lumaes200,

You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

DISH DVR doesn't respond to remote


  1. If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
  2. Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
  3. Press SYS INFO.
  4. Press Record multiple times on your remote.
  5. Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
  6. If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
  7. If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.
