To whom it may concern,

You can do this, yes, but it will not increase the quality of your picture.

Ashlinlow,

You can definitely use an RCA to HDMI converter, though since our 625 receivers do not have HD capability it won't improve the picture at all. If you would like to look into upgrading to HD equipment, you can reach me directly at thomas.faust@dish.com!

SOURCE: I have a ViP 722.

Okay I am not positive I have this right as far as the configuration of the system but I will give it a shot. If you run the 722 to the tv using rca's you get the hum. I assume this as there are no inputs on a dish 722 receiver. I can suggest one possible solution which is to buy an rf modulator. It will convert the signal from rca to coax so you can connect as you wish. There are several types out there so ensure you get the one that converts from rca to coax. I would suggest the following configuration: Remove all connections from tv and hook 722 up via rca's to rca input 1 on the tv, check for hum. If it is present now you need a new 722 as it is passing to much power thru the connection. If there is no hum connect your cable and tivo to the tv via whatever inputs you have remaining. Lastly connect the DVD player to another input that is free. You will have to system through your inputs to view the three sources but should not have the hum. I hope this solves your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: Hi guys, I bought new

This is a really difficult problem to answer correctly on the first try but here we go. Some tvs will not recognize the introduction of a new component without unplugging the tv for about 30 seconds with the component connected and powering the tv back on. The issue I believe Dish was trying to convey was to make sure the port you plug the receiver into is turned on in the tv menu. Since the dvd works in any of them this seems to be the case. I f you have further difficulties you should contact the tv manufacturer for assistance as they are more familiar with teaching the tv to communicate with the receiver than Dish personell will be in most cases.

SOURCE: connection to TV by HDMI cable

The 625 is not a high definition receiver and therefore does not support hdmi. You can use RGB or S-video to provide a higher quality picture than the coax output. If you need more options let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

SOURCE: I need to connect my Dish Network 625 DVR to a JVC

Providing you have enough input ports on the surround run you a red and white audio RCA jack from the receiver out port for TV1 and connect to the same colored ports on the satellite in ports on the surround. If you do not have enough ports then you may have to use the in ports on the DVD etc to run the TV through to utilize the surround system. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

To whom it may concern,
As a technician whom has been in the field for nearly a decade, my suggestion is to contact Dish Network customer service and set up a technician visit.. I know that there are far too many variables that could influence my answer and how I structure it, likely leading to more issues.

How to record to vcr player/recorde from dish 625 dvr


Hi, Mari!

You can definitely use a VCR with your DISH 625 receiver. To set this up you would need to connect your VCR between your receiver and the TV.

The easiest way would be to run RCA cables from the TV Out to the VCR's TV input. From there, all you would have to do is run cables from the VCR's Out to the TV. Make sure the VCR and receiver are powered on and change to the input on the TV based on where the cables are plugged in on the TV.

If you have any questions let me know!

I have a zenith tv older model, and have dish network, i need to know how to hook it up and switch it over so i can play it


If you have an HD receiver you will want to use one of two types of cables; you can use component cables which have five ends red, blue, green, red and white, or you can use an HDMI cable which will have one flat connection. If you have a standard definition receiver you will want to use RCA cables these have three ends red yellow white. The connections will be labeled on the television as well as the receiver. Once you get this connected hit the input/source button on your TV set if you're using RCA cables you want the TV set to video 1 or video 2. If you're using an HDMI cable then set the TV to HDMI 1or 2 using the input /source button. If you use Component cables set the TV to Y/PB/PR or component 1/2.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

How do i use the ant. passthrough on tv2 in dual mode w/ dish dvr625


ANT. passthrough for an ant. connected to your 625 receiver will only work on tv 1. The only way to do this is to RF modulate your tv 2 coax to an RCA and hook the RcA cable to your tv2. then use another ant. to connect coax allowing you to pick up dish programing on an input and then going to the channels to enjoy local over the air programming.
