Dvr VIP622 will only record up to 20 episodes, still has 148 free hours left...whats the cause and fix?


hmaddison21,

Our 622 receivers are able to record more than just 20 episodes. There is a setting you can change to ensure it keeps any recordings.

Press the DVR button 3 times to go to Daily Schedule. Once there select "Timers" and then manually select the timer that you're having problems with. Go to Options and on the bottom is a "Maximum Recorded Events" section. This is where you can tell the receiver how many episodes to hold before automatically deleting them. Delete the timer and reset it up, make sure that box has a # symbol in it. If the problem continues afterwards, let me know here!

I came across your post, andrea_paul_, and it caught my interest! I need to ask you a couple of questions to better understand the situation in order to optimally help you. Do you have DISH Network service? If you do, what is the model number of the receiver? That can be found on the front panel in the bottom left corner. If it says 'DVR' next to that number, is the TV screen giving you an error message? If so, let me know what it is.

candgr15,

It's possible that after it did the formatting of the DVR it just needs to be reset. Unplug it for 5-10 seconds and plug it back in. It will reacquire signal and the guide.

If that doesn't work run a check switch test from Menu-> System Setup (6)-> Installation (1)-> Point Dish(1). Select check switch then test. Once it's done exit out.

I would also check your timers after the reset to make sure they're setup as they made have been deleted during the reformatting.

Tech support tells me that hard drive failed, but I have valuable recordings that I need.


Hey there! Becki Barned with Dish Network here! I am sorry about losing recordings. :( That is an unfortunate event that can happen at times. You do, however, always have the option of connecting an external hard drive to your receiver, and keeping the dvr events on there! It is $40 to get it started on your account, then you are free to download anything after that! It is a great feature, and if you have to lose your recordings again, you could look into that! Here is a link on our website if you want to look into it further. Enjoy! http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/use-ehd

We keep losing shows! They record just fine, but then a few have disappeared, even when protected. Any ideas where they might be, and/or how to keep this from happening?


Check to see how full you DVR is. This happened to us and our DVR was filled up. When that happens the DVR starts to delete stuff, even protected things. It will first delete non-protected shows and then if there are none left to delete and room is still needed, it will delete other shows. Not sure, or can't remember how it prioritizes the deletion but it happens.
Check how full you DVR is and that may be where your problem lies.

I have been having DISH DVR problems lately. The most recent is my recorded programs list is not showing anything in it. But I only have 13 hours of record time left, so I know they are on there somewhere.


You always want to ensure you have the updates being completed at a time that is most convenient for you, you can change the update time which is generally set to 3am, by going into your MENU selecting option 8 (Preferences) and then selecting option 4 (Updates) you will then be able to change the time the receiver completes updates if you desire and then please just make sure you are shutting your receiver off nightly to allow the updates to be successfully completed (this will help to prevent DVR issues). In addition, once you delete some of your recordings, powering it off nightly allows the hard drive to be refreshed and clears the deleted recording entirely. I hope this helps!

Dvr won't record


Unfortunately there will be no fix for this, at one point your receiver might have asked you to delete all files when you tuned it on when it deleted your files it reformatted the hard drive incorrectly so you will need to contact dish network for replacment. if its leased it can be replaced at no charge maybe a shipping charge. If its purchased you can get dhpp warranty for 5.99 a month and that will cover replacement or repair.
