Question about DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder
When my wife or I are watching events we have recorded, the recording will freeze up for 2-3 seconds and even longer sometimes. It will do this multiple times in a row and makes watching a show impossible. We have never had any problems with this but over the last few weeks it has been happening no matter the program we are watching.
One of two things may be occurring. The first is a Line Of Sight issue may have been created if you have a limited LOS by wind moving foliage interrupting the signal. This will usually be preceded by pixelization or blocking appearing on the screen. The other instance is the hard drive in the receiver is faulty and in need of replacement. I will almost certainly assure you it is the latter of the two. You can upgrade the receiver to gain the ability to use an external hard drive to download your recordings so that the next time you need a receiver replaced you won't lose your recordings. The other benfit is that if you get a receiver tht does not have a DVR but is able to use an external hard drive you will save the cost of the DVR fee each month which in a year will save you thirty one dollars as there is a 39.99 one time charge to turn this capability on. In the first year alone you will have recouped almost the entire cost of the one time fee and in the second year will have probably recouped the cost of the external hardrive also.
