Dish DVR-625 won't record

Tried to demonstrate recording capabilities to a customer after install...any request to record came up with an error that said in essence...can not access the program guide(or some similar nonsense). Didn't matter where in the program guide we tried it(present program...future...etc). Any ideas? Receiver had just been activated...but program guide appeared to be whole on the screen. Thanks

More than likely the download was interrupted. Take bot remotes and turn off both tuners. When this is accomplished the blue and geen light will be extinguished. Now you will need to wait about thirty minutes for the receiver to turn back on. When it does it should immediately go to downloading software when this completes you should get a new program guide to download. The process is a bit time consuning but should resolve your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Dvr box wont record


Are you able to access any of your previous recordings?

Try unplugging the receiver for 10-15 seconds and plug back in. The receiver will reboot itself for you and should restore functionality of the DVR. If that doesn't work the hard drive has likely failed and we would need to send a replacement receiver.

My Dish DVR 625 does the "program guide download"


Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Networks customer service department. This sounds like it may be a signal issue, I would make sure the cabling is tight and in good condition. You also want to enable your inactivity standby having it disabled will only make this worse. If everything seems ok you may need a technician.

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.

Can I record antenaTV on my Dish PVR-625


Officially, no you would not be able to since you no longer pay the $5.98 DVR fee which Dish charges for the DVR. Wish I could have given you better news. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.

Problem with DISH DVR 625


You can accomplish this by either going to the specific TV and selecting the record option at the time the program is about to come on or you can press menu-8-5 and change the record preferences. You can either set the DVR to record programs to the TV2 location by default or TV1 by enabling the record plus feature. In dual mode without record plus enabled all programs you select to record default to the tuner you are viewing e,g, if watching tv1 and selecting to record a program in the future it will record to the tv1 location.In single mode all recordings default to tv2 so you can continue to watch live tv from tv1. I hope this answers your question and thanks for using Fix Ya. Let me know if I can further assist you.
