There is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.

Step 1: Check that TV or Stereo is not muted
Make sure that your TV or Stereo has not beed muted and that the volume is turned up loud enough to hear.
Step 2: Reset Receiver
If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
Please note: It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed.
Step 3: Check Receiver-to-TV Configuration
Check that the wiring between your DISH receiver and your TV is configured properly.
Step 4: Secure Receiver-to-TV Connections
Check that the connections between your DISH receiver, your TV, and any component(s) (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) in between are secure.
