My video has started to lock or recorded. It stutters before it locks

And I have to reboot the unit to get it back. The time before it locks up again is decreasing rapidly. It is unusable at this point.

SOURCE: humax digital recorder picture freeze every 10 minutes

Humax are having problems and are starting to send out software upgrades (night-time updates) - seems to be related to the new formats on the MUXs for the digital switch-over. Our 9150T hasn't been fixed yet but due any day (I hope)

The channel master locked up so I unplugged it. Now, when I plug it back in it just sits and says loading Chanel master tv but does not load. What should I do?

I have 3 of these 7000pals and 2 have done a similar thing, one of them did it twice. After the loading channel Master screen hangs for a time, they would restart. Then the same cycle would keep repeating. It seems like after years of adding and deleting timers, the DVR's software gets "confused". I've noticed twice it happened on the hour just as a program timer started while I was watching a program through the DVR. ZAP...Locked up! The power button would not even work to turn it off.

The steps below fixed all three instances of this failure.

To unlock the Channel Master CM7000PAL DVR:

1. Unplug the recorder from the wall outlet and DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA. Now plug it back into the wall power outlet.(This will keep the recorder from freezing and rebooting)

2. let it go thru it's normal bootup, tv guide search, etc.

3. When you are able to, hit MENU and then go up to TIMERS. Delete all of the record timers. Unplug it, reconnect the antenna, and plug it back in.

4. After a now a proper bootup, re-program you timers and you will be good to go.

5. And the best thing is, all of your pre-recorded shows will still be there on the hard drive.

I would suggest that you do a yearly "TIMER CLEAN" to avoid this trouble in the future.

DVR refuses to rewind or pause live TV or record


If you are still experiencing problems with your 625 receiver performing live DVR functions, try unplugging the receiver for about 10 seconds and plugging back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and acquire satellite signal. After the picture returns, then try to pause. If it still doesn't work, then we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show

Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07
you can go into the DVR and replace the hard drive but I would suggest getting Dish Home Plan, Replace the receiver and then cancel the Home Plan. Talk to Dish Network and they will work with you.

TV showed "Problem Detected" with a possible solution of unplugging my unit for 60 secs. and allowing it to reboot. I do this routinely (Once a mo), but did it again. This time it cleared ALL recorded...

Hi ljdubas myname is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and if youare getting the "problem has been detected" and it still comes up after youunplug the receiver and plug it back in there is a problem with the DVR and itwill need to be replaced.

None of the buttons on the front do anything... locked up

Couple of possibilities here, could be a stuck button, could be a fan dragging and pulling the voltage down, check the PSU, low voltage can do this. Could be a disc problem, replace HDD and download latest software version from DM site reload and try again. Could also be "frozen", and if your PSU and HDD is healthy a reboot should solve this. No definitive answer.

DVR not playing.

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.

Freezes; sometimes resets by itself?

Most likely, it's your hard drive. It can be replaced, so you don't have to junk the unit.
