HOW DO YOU GET PRIME TIME ANYTIME ON ALL TV'S


Hi, I would be happy to assist you with your question. Prime Time Any Time is a feature of the Hopper that allows your local channels to be viewed using one tuner. It also allows for the recording of all four major networks ABC, CBS, NBC, & FOX during prime time hours using one tuner. If one TV is set to a local channel than you can press the Red Hot Key on any DISH Remote and it will display the TV Viewing Screen and all the locals will be listed. You can scroll to and select any of the locals listed and it will play on that TV. If you are still having issues and need additional assistance, please feel free to PM DISH directly on facebook here: http://goo.gl/dgbNL Thank you!

We have Dish Network VIP722 on only one tv at this time. When recordng PPV, we are unable to change channels without getting message that recording will stop. Menu>Preferences>Record...


We would be happy to help you with that. The first thing we would recommend checking is if the "Record Plus" feature is "Enabled", this can be found to the left of the "Record Preferences" on the "Record Plus" screen. The other thing we would recommend is to ensure that the tuner that you are viewing is for the TV1. You can swap between the tuners by pressing "Input" button while in SAT mode.

This should get things set up the way you want it. Thanks for choosing DISH Network!

I have a 625 dual tuner from Dish. When I do a check switch it shows that I have signals on both satellites on tuner 1 but tuner 2 has none. When I disconnect the cables from the receiver and reconnect...


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service, I will be happy to assist with this. This receiver needs to have a Separator (splitter) that has one coax cable coming from the Satellite into the single side and then two cables out, which connect to the receiver box. The Separator is marked with a SAT1 & SAT2. They will connect up to SAT1 & SAT2 on the receiver box itself. If you are using a different typr splitter, it is probably not rated for the splitting of the Satellite feed. I hope this helps you, if not feel free to contact me.

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other


Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.

No signal on one tuner for dual tuner box.. neither tv works.


Hi benray there is something else youcan do on that to make sure your getting the strongest signal possible. Youwill need to press the MENU-6-1-1 buttons on the remote. Select Check Switchand Test, after the test is complete select done and then check the signal andif there is still a weak signal we will need to re-point the Dish.

Our Dvr will only record on the channel we are watching. I cannot watch one show and record another? It says I have to be watching the channel I want to record?


for the dual tuner, if you are unsure what this is... please look at the back of the satellite box and see if you have 2 sat in cables. if you do, then you need to reprogram your satellite. if you do not have 2 sat in cables then you would need to contact dtv to get this installed.

Trouble recording on the DVR.


Do you have a Dual tuner DVR? If so, verify that you have 2 cables from the dish plugged into the back, one into each tuner.

If thats not the problem, go into your settings and verify that you do not have one tuner disabled. If both tuners are enabled, check the signal strength. If its good on both tuners and resetting the receiver doesn't fix it, its probably time to call DTV to discuss a new receiver.
