The 6.3 remote has a blue number two key tab on it when it is shipped from the warehouse. If you remove the battery lid you will be able to remove the tab by pulling it out.You will need the other keys that should have come with the remote and use the black colored uhf key and insert it into the remote and put battery cover back on. Ensure the UHF antenna on the back of the receiver is tight and in the upright position. Now turn the TV on and using the buttons on the receiver press menu twice. This should bring you to the system info screen. There will be a remote address toward the bottom of the screen and usually this number is 1. Now take the new remote and press and hold the clear SAT button on top until all the lights across the top illuminate. Now release and key in 01 and press the pound key. The SAT button should flash three times. Press the record button and noe try to navigate the highlight to the done or cancel option using the left and right key. You should now have control of the receiver if not the antenna port which receives the commands could be faulty. If you were successful with the remote remember you will also need to program it to the TV itself to enable you to turn the TV on and off and control the volume with the remote. The FINAL issue that may be causing your issue is that the part number you gave does not match a 6.3 remote. A 6.0 WILL NOT WORK WITH THE 510 EVEN IF YOU DO ALL OF THE ABOVE as I tried it the other night to verify the accuracy of information that is put out internally. I hope this resolves your issue and if you need help programming the remote to the TV itself please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Will dish network 510 receiver work in uhf with dish 21.1 remote


No, the 510 receiver does not have a UHF input. http://manuals.solidsignal.com/DVR510.pdf You can upgrade to a 512, 612, 625, but would need your installation upgraded to be compatable (Dish Pro to Dish Pro Plus).

Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Network here. I know you've probably gotten this up and running by now but just for reference to anyone on this site. Any cabling or connectors used to carry signal to the receiver should be rated for 2,150 mhz if this is not the case you will typically get signal loss messages.

Guest,

The receiver may be developing a hard drive problem. Have you seen any error messages pop up on the TV screen (024 or 311)? The receiver may need to be replaced. You can call 1-800-333-3474. I hope this helps.

Copy shows from dishnetwork 510 receivers to external hd


ic_technolog,

External Hard Drives are not supported on the 510 receiver. The 211, 211k, 411, 612, 622, 722, 722k, and 922 are all capable of having an external hard connected via the USB port on the receiver and a one time activation fee of $40. 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.
for tech support go to: tech.dishnetwork.com

Nearby TV is not working - no picture. We tried to check switch under the Point Dish menu option however we received error message 836. Please help


It may be that your dish has been blown out of alignment or struck by something resulting in the misalignment. The dish will need to be repointed. Please call Dish for a service call to rectify the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Receiver 510 error code 836


err 836 means you have changed your recvr to a different dish or LNB's or your missing one or more satellites needed for your installation or programming needs. if this has been in the same location and connected tot he same dish and you dont have sats 105,or 121 listed in the install summary then you will need a technician to check your dish. It could be out of alignment or a faulty LNB.

510 DVR has to reload sat signal when accessing recorded events.


There was not a software upgrade in the last month for the 510 according to Dish Network. With that being said the issue is more than likely a bad hard drive. If you have to replace the receiver ask about a non dvr model that supports an external hard drive. This will allow you to keep from paying the dvr fee every month and allow you to have better control of your recordings eg. more record time, saved recordings if receiver needs to be replaced etc. There is a 39.99 one time fee for Dish to enable this feature but it is well worth it in my opinion. You may also want to check out the line of Sling media they have available also if you are an avid TV fan.

Have dish receiver 510, channels i need are on transponder 21, reciever changes to transponder 4 and there is nothing!!! this is on satellite 129 only, 110 and 119 work fine


Donna,
I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I am assuming you have another receiver in the house that is an HD receiver as the 510 is not and it would not make any sense for you to have the 129 orbital without it. If you go to the other receiver and are able to get transponder 21 on the 129 bird then the issue lies in either the cabling, connectors, barrels and or wall plate, or the 510 itself. Assuming you were good to go with the hi def receiver move it to the 510 location and see if you are able to still p/u the 21 transponder. If so, the 510 is bad and needs to be replaced. If not the problem lies in the aforementioned areas. if yoou are unable to get the 21 transponder on the hi def receiver also then more than likely the dish needs to be repeaked. If I can be of more assistance let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

DVR 510 WON'T WORK ANYMORE


Did you have a power outage last night or lightning strike? If not unplug the receiver for approxiamately 30 seconds and plug it back in to the wall plate. Try to turn it on now. If it fails to power up it may indicate that the receptacle is bad or the receiver. Swap the plug from the receiver to the known good outlet the tv plugs into and try to power it up. If it fails the receiver is dead and you will need a new one. 510 are due to be discontinued with Dish so your local provider may not have one to replace yours with and you may be left with the option of upgrading the receiver, seeing if Customer Service can send you one out if you have a warranty program or buying one from a retailer or online.
Hope this helps you.
