Question about DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder
I have some shows recorded on my DVR and none of them will work.
When I play them it won't work, and it says I have the show recorded with the right amount of time.
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.
