I want to copy the programs recorded on my dvr 510.
I am upgrading to dish hd and want to copy all the programs I have recorded over the years on my dvr 510. is their a quicker way than just playing them in real time and copying them to dvd's on a commercial dvr? I have the drive full, so I guess that would take 100 hours. Even that would not be bad if I could just set it and walk away, but these are all half hour programs, so I would have to re-start the machine every 30 minutes.

Re: I want to copy the programs recorded on my dvr 510.
According to engineering aspects of the 510 it is not designed to allow the recordings to be transferred. The only option you have is the option you mentioned or purchasing the 510 and having it incorporated into the new system so you can access them. I am sorry I did not have any better news for you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.

Hi my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. With our Duo SD 625 DVR, it cannot receive HD signal, there will need to be an upgrade to our HD duo DVR systems. If you have any further questions about our DISH equipment please e-mail me at; firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi gehrlichman, my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network andI was going over your post and seen where you were asking about an externalhard drive to get the recordings off your 625 DVR receiver. To do that you willneed to upgrade to our VIP HD series receivers, if you get the HD DVR receiveryou will be able to add an External Hard Drive to get the recordings off. Iwill send a link to tell you all of what's needed.http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/use-ehd
To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.
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.
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
Be sure that a DVR timer is set to fire, instead of an auto tune. Also if it is a series then make sure you select new episodes, your dvr will not recor a program if it has already recorded the same program once, ( re run) you can also check your scehdule in your dvr to check if timer has been deleted or modified.
Unfortunately as a Dish Network Employee I must inform you that acording to Dish that is not possible however a good computer tech may be able to help you with a work around but keep in mind that if any damage occurs to the receiver that Dish will charge you for the receiver. When you do upgrade check into the receiver models that have an expansion port for an external hard drive. A 211 which is a solo hidefinition receiver without DVR can have a port activated for as one time charge of 39.99 and you can use the hard drive you supply as the DVR. Yoiu also will not be accessed the 5.98 DVR fee every month and if the receiver needs replacing you still have your recordings. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
It sounds as if your going to need to replace the receiver as the hard drive has an error on it. I assume you can record live TV. There are also few 510's in the Dish Network service area throughout the country so my suggestion is to have Dish send the receiver to your home as opposed to creating a work order for a technician to come to your home as it will be hard to ensure you get the 510 back.If you decide to upgrade to a HD receiver try to get a model that does not have the internal hard drive but also has the expansion port on it. There is a one time fee to activate this port of 39.99. This amount will be recovered in the first year by using an external hard drive eliminating the 5.99 DVR fee every month. This option also allows you to have better control of your recordings and makes them portable. They also will not be lost by replacing the receiver. If you are a real big tv fan check out the sling box offers. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
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.
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.
