Dish Network DVR

I have a receiver in my room. It does not have its own box. I works off the reciever from the front room. I recently unpluged the receiver in the front room. Now my tv in my room is snowy. I have checked the assigned channels but still have not been able to fix it.

Re: Dish Network DVR

You have what is called a diplexer in the back of the the receiver in the front room.It looks like a splitter.If it is put back on in the wrong way you will have a fuzzy screen.look at the diplexer,you will see in/out which would be the input on a regular splitter,then you will have one side that would be one of the 2 outputs that will say SAT,the other side is UHF/VHF.The chances are that when you plugged them back in you had them swapped.Try changing the 2 cables around.If that doesnt work try changing the assigned channel to 68.You can also try doing a auto channel search on the tv in the room without the receiver.this will find the channel that the front room receiver is broadcasting the signal on.Chances are though that your diplexer wires are configured incorrectly.remember,the in/out should plug into the back of the receiver (satellite in)and the UHF/VHF should be going to the other room with the problem and the SAT side of the diplexer should be wired to the satellite dish.GOOD LUCK! rate me with the outcome please.

My dish network reciever vip622 dvr fan runs all the time. Is this normal

I have the same issue and find it unbelievable that the Dish Network DVR is so noisy. It's virtually a deal killer, except now I have the damn dish on my roof. Why can't Dish commission a better quality product?

Dvr box wont record

Are you able to access any of your previous recordings?

Try unplugging the receiver for 10-15 seconds and plug back in. The receiver will reboot itself for you and should restore functionality of the DVR. If that doesn't work the hard drive has likely failed and we would need to send a replacement receiver.

Hello, my name is Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service. Whats probably causing the issue would be that either you're not getting high enough signal strength on the 61.5 satellite. Otherwise there could be an issue with the box if you swap it with another reciever in the home, and the issue follws it you'll need a new box.

What would cause reciever 2 to have a much lower singal than reciever 1 on a 625 reciever foe dishnetwork

Hello there! Becki Barned with Dish Network customer service here! There are a few reasons for this. There could be a problem with the receiver itself, cabling, or a component on the dish itself. Normally, it is due to a corrupted cable, or the receiver not being able to pull in signal. Unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds in most cases, will help. Blog back if any other troubles!

Light in the set box is not changing red light is flickering. Green light is not coming inspite of changing the batteries in the remote control. I am having Dish TV in my house.

Hi, this is Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. It sounds like you are experiencing a power issue with your Dish network VIP622 DVR. You can try resetting the Receiver box by unplugging it for 10 seconds (if it is plugged into a surge protector, for the purpose of troubleshooting, plug directly into a wall outlet). Wait for receiver to reacquire satellite signal. If you are still having an issue, you will need to contact Dish Network because the receiver box will probably need to be replaced. I hope this information helps you.

Are you still having problems with your DVR receiver? Try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds and plugging back in. The receiver will reboot and acquire satellite signal. If this doesn't fix the problem there may be an issue with the receiver. I hope this helps.
