Re: value: negative 1 next to the 7
Tom there has been some misinformation on this feature in the field. Acoording to Dish the only acceptable value for Value 7 is a four. Anything other than four is indicative of hard drive failure which IS why you are having issues recording. You need to have the receiver replaced. If you do not have the Digital Home Protection Plan you can subscribe to it for 5.99 a month and Dish will replace the receiver if it is leased at no charge to you there may be a 29.99 charge for the tech visit to replace the receiver. You can avoid this as well by having the receiver shipped directly to you if you feel confident you can re-install it yourself. I hope this is of some assistance to you and thank you for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Adjust your settings to continue recording when the hard drive gets full. If 'Overwrite when full' is enabled, the system should start overwriting the oldest data when new data is recorded. Note that these are two different settings: 1) Continue recording (or do not stop recording) when disk is full and 2) Overwrite when full is enabled.
Hello! For these issues, here are a few simple steps:
First, for the DVR recording shows, you just need to delete those timers. They may have accidentally been set up.
1. Menu, 7-Daily Schedule
3. Edit list
4. Select any timers that you did not create, or want deleted. This will stop them from recording!
For the program guide:
You just need to download the program guide. Here's a couple easy ways:
1. Pull up the Guide
2. Press 999 then the right arrow button (Browse) until the guide prompts a download,
1. Pull up a menu. Press 6 (Sys setup) -1(Installation) - 1( Point dish)
2. Highlight and select Check Switch on the upper right
3. Select test at the bottom left. (If a message comes up between steps 2 and 3, select yes. )
4. Press VIew live tv, and allow the Acquiring signal message and the guide download to go through.
Strange. Are you sure it's the TiVo at fault? I'm thinking when you turn off the unit and back on again you're actually forcing your TV/Monitor into the correct input. When it next goes into black and white, try selecting different TV AV inputs, normally a square or circle with an arrow in it on the remote control. If this fixes it, I'd suggest that you have another piece of equipment connected to your TV that's fighting for control.
Try this: Press the power button and hold it for about ten seconds and let the system reboot. Try to use the dvr again. If that was unsucessful try unplugging the receiver from the wall outlet for approxiamately 30 seconds and repower the systen and try again.
If these have not worked You can press menu-6-1-3 and view the system info screen. Go to the details options and select it. Once the details screen loads arrow all the way down until you see the values of which value 9 is the last one. If value 7 is not 4 you need the unit replaced. If all the above did not work the unit will still need replacing as the hard drive has locked up.
Dish has a new receiver called a 222k which has an expansion USB port that will allow you to use an external hard drive to use as the dvr as the 222k is not a DVR unit; it is a HD dual tuner. The external hard drive offers many advantages such as being able to take your recordings on the road, ability to keep recordings if the receiver fails, etc. Another awesome device they have also is called a sling box which will allow remote viewing of your Satellite from a remote location over a laptop, PDA, or cell phone.
I hope this helps you and thanks for using Fix Ya.
There is a simple way to determine if the receiver needs to be replaced just do the following:
1 Go to the menu on the 622 and press 6-1-3. This will put you on the system info screen.
2 Select details by maneuvering the yellow highlight and press select. This will bring you to the STB Health Lite. This screen will give you signal readings for all satellites orbitals you have such as 119,110,129, 148 ,61.5, etc. on the 14,15,16, and 21 transponders. These value differ depending on which area of the country you are in but as a rule of thumb generally should be above 70 for 110 and 119, and above 60 on the 129. It will also have a set of values if you arrow down all the way from 0 to 9. If value 0 is above 2 the hard drive is malfuctioning and receiver needs to be replaced. Value 1 above 10 indicates a hardware failure. Value 2 above 0 the same thing -hardware failure. Value 4
(which will be the one you will probably see above tolerance) should be 200 or lower. Value 7 should be 4 or it indicates the hard drive is malfunctioning. All other values currently are for engineering use only.
3 If any value is above the thresholds call customer no service and get a replacement shipped to you or service call set up.
If you have any trouble with this please give me your contact information and I will get it resolved for you. I hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further assistance.
I've had this problem before, and always fixed it by going through setup again, setting the zip code to another zipcode nearby, and turning it off overnight. By the next morning the time has fixed itself. This is the only thing that has worked for me consistently.
