Question about GE SDVR-16 Video Recorder

1 Answer

Video loss I have 16 security cameras hooked up to this system and when I came in this morning all my screens had a V flashing in the top left corners. I started to notice that none of my feeds were live either. I think the flashing V stands for video loss. Any knowledge on how to fix this problem?

Re: Video loss

You're right... it is indicating video loss. from my experience, at least 90% of the time it's because the cameras aren't getting power.

Guide only takes up 2/3 of bottom of screen. Shouldn't it extend all the way across? say, 2/3 of BOTTOM of screen? Are you pressing the "guide" button on the remote or the "ok" button? Pressing the "ok" button gives you a mini-guide, only taking up top or bottom of screen, depending on what you prefer. As for it not extending across the screen (sideways/left to right?), you probably have the output resolution set to HD (720p or 1080i). That will cause the fullscreen menus to preserve their 4:3 aspect. The menus were not designed for widescreen resolutions. If your box is set to SD (and 4:3 override to 'stretch'), it would stretch it across the entire screen (assuming you have 16:9 TV).

Dvr not responding

There was a software update early this morning which caused your recvr to go to recovery mode until it downloads the new software which takes about 4 hours. Once this is done you should be just fine!

I need to program my new dishnet work remote

Turn the receiver off using the front panel power button and then press the channel up button and hold it until the unit powers on. This will bring you to the system info screen. There you will see the remote address the remote needs to be programmed to- usually 1. Now press and hold the SAT button on top of the remote until all buttons on the top lite up and release. Now key in the two digit number shown on the screen - numbers under ten will be preceeded buy a zero. Now press the pound sign on the bottom right of the keypad. The SAT button will flash three times and then you will need to press the record button . YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO MANUEVER THE HIGHLIGHT ON THE SCREEN AND EXIT OUT OF THE SCREENS . Thanks for using Fix Ya. ---and if you can not bring up the system info screen perform the steps on the remote itself until you reach the correct number that will control the receiver- 01 thru 16. if you need further assistance please let me know.

I had the same problem. Left the unit on overnight, next morning the unit was working fine. Also if you turn the unit off and back on it can take up to a hour for the system to reboot.

Hi,my brand new UHF remote wont operate the #2 tv??

Go to the tv 1 location with your TV2 remote. Turn TV1 on and using TV1's remote press menu-menu. You will be at the System Info Screen. Take TV2 REMOTE and press and hold the SAT button on the top left until all buttons on the top light up. Release the SAT button. Now key in a two digit number from 1to 16 and press the # key. The SAT button will flash three times. Now press the record button until the remote address for TV2 changes to the number you chose. When accomplished exit out of the screen with th TV1 remote and you should now be able to control TV 2. As a precaution ensure the remote antenna is on the back of the receiver. If you still have difficulty it may be required to move the remote antenna closer to TV2. I hope this answers your question. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can of further assistance.
