Want six receivers at home

I want six seperate tvs to be able to view different channels at the same time. what is the cheapest way for me to get hd on at least 3 of these tv's? wireless through the wall does not work well here since my home has metal lath in all rooms, also i don't have but two phone outlets and dont't care to have anymore cords stapeled to my baseboards. i have no need for a dvr or pay for view. I currently have 4 301 receivers, none of which are connected to a phone line. long question, hope someone can wade through it and provide me with help.
(i am willing to purchase the extra receivers if needed) emma

The 301 is a standard receiver, so it wont give you HD programs. You will have to buy at least 3 HD receivers. (they're about $300 a piece:(). The vip222 HD reciever has 2 tuners so it will allow you to have seperate programs on 2 television.

HOW DO YOU GET PRIME TIME ANYTIME ON ALL TV'S


Hi, I would be happy to assist you with your question. Prime Time Any Time is a feature of the Hopper that allows your local channels to be viewed using one tuner. It also allows for the recording of all four major networks ABC, CBS, NBC, & FOX during prime time hours using one tuner. If one TV is set to a local channel than you can press the Red Hot Key on any DISH Remote and it will display the TV Viewing Screen and all the locals will be listed. You can scroll to and select any of the locals listed and it will play on that TV. If you are still having issues and need additional assistance, please feel free to PM DISH directly on facebook here: http://goo.gl/dgbNL Thank you!

Only recieve HD programs on my Vip 612 receiver. I want to receive non HD channels as well


Hello! The guide might be set to only HD. You will find this out by going into the guide. At the top Left of your guide, you will see that it says left to the right of the DISH Network logo. If it says ALL HD, then just press the GUIDE button again, until the list says ALL CHAN or ALL SUB. This way, you can view not only HD channels, but SD channels as well! Hope this helps!!!!

My VIP722 DVr keeps showing that I have a complete loss of signal. This goes for awhile and can receive no HD channels. By going to DVR I can then go to guide and get SD channels only. But then after...


Hello this is Nick Franta with DISH Network.

What error message are you receiving on your screen? There should be a 3 digit number in the top right of the message. Has there been any bad weather in the area which may have affected the signal?

If you haven't been advised to already, I would suggest doing a hard reset of the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds. When you plug it back in the receiver will reboot itself for you. If you are still getting errors hit the menu button then 6-system setup, 1-installation, 1-point dish, and then hit check switch and then test. All your satellites should show green. If not we would need to send a tech out to address the issue.

Hope this helps!

How to set a clock on a hd dual tuner dvbr dch3416


The clock should set automatically, synchronized with your cable provider's time. You can't change it, as far as I know. OR does it display the channel number and you want it to display the time? If so, go to your onscreen menu (home), choose setup, choose cable box setup, front LED display: current channel ----> current time.

Combining output from dish home distribution with ota antenna


You should have your system setup in the following manner below:

You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.

Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.

Pink and blue images occasionally on power up of DISH DVR


Tell me a little more about how the receiver is connected to the tv and if this is present on both tvs at the same time and lastly what brand and model of tv you have. I recently had an issue somewhat similar to this but need more information to make an educated hypothesis.

Hi


Have questions about your upgrade? We've got the answers. What do I need to do to receive my upgrade? Nothing! Just make sure your DIRECTV HD DVR is continuously connected to your land-based phone line and you will receive the upgrade automatically. When will I receive my upgrade? The 6.3 software upgrade will roll out over a period of several weeks. Customers with more than one DIRECTV HD DVR may receive their upgrades at different times for each receiver. We appreciate your patience while we deliver these new and improved features to eligible DIRECTV HD DVR customers nationwide. Are all DIRECTV DVRs receiving this upgrade? No. DIRECTV DVR models SONY SAT-T60, PHILIPS DSR6000R and HUGHES GXCEBOT will not receive the 6.3 software upgrade. Other models received a similar upgrade, 6.2, in the past. I have a DIRECTV R10 DVR with 6.1 software. Will I receive this upgrade? No. The 6.1 software on the DIRECTV R10 DVR already includes the 6.2 features such as folders and faster menu scrolling. Will any of my DVR settings be changed as a result of the upgrade? Yes, some of your settings or preferences will be changed back to the factory default settings as a result of the upgrade. These include: "Favorite Channels," "Channels You Receive," "Spending Limits," "Clear Channel Banner Quickly" and "Dolby Digital" recording and output. To change Channel Banners, Channels You Receive and Favorite Channels preferences: 1. Select "Messages and Setup" 2. Select "Settings" 3. Select "Channels" To change Spending Limits: 1. Select "Messages and Setup" 2. Select "Settings" 3. Select "Parental Control" To change Dolby Digital Settings: 1. Select "Messages and Setup" 2. Select "Settings" 3. Select "Audio" 4. Select "Dolby Digital" and "Digital Output" Will I be charged for this upgrade? No. We're upgrading your DIRECTV HD DVR as part of your normal DIRECTV® DVR with TiVo® service at no additional cost. What happens if I don't have my phone line plugged into my DIRECTV DVR? You will not be able to receive the upgrade if your DIRECTV DVR is not connected to your phone line. To install the upgrade, your receiver must successfully make a call to our servers. How will I know when I have received my upgrade? You'll receive an on-screen message the first time you visit DIRECTV Central after your upgrade is complete. It will also appear in your Messages section. You can also check your System Information screen to find out which software version you currently have. Will the download delete any of my currently saved programs? No. All of your saved programs will still be there for your enjoyment after the installation. Once your upgrade is complete... How do I activate the Grouping (folders) option? 1. Go to your Now Playing List. 2. Press Enter on your remote control. 3. Change groups to ON. SHORTCUT HINT: While viewing your Now Playing List, press number 2 on your remote control and your Now Playing List will change from the GROUPS view to show each individual recording. Press 2 again and it will switch back to the GROUPS option. How do I sort alphabetically instead of by date recorded? 1. Go to your Now Playing List. 2. Press Enter on your remote control. 3. Change sorting option to Alphabetical. SHORTCUT HINT: While viewing your Now Playing List, press number 1 on your remote control and your Now Playing List will change from alphabetical to date sort. Press 1 again and it will switch back to alphabetical sort. Some settings will restore to factory defaults when the new software is download
