That's a yes and no question. Yes you could do your own install if you actually own it or you don't care about voiding the warrenty. More than likely, I'm thinking that if it's an internal hard drive then your going to need to let the manufacturer reinstall the hard drive so that you will not void the warranty. If you don't care about the warrenty then you can.

    I have to do some reserch but more than likely you can replace a hard drive if you need a new one. Most hard drives come blank and will be formated by the system you install it on. Let me check this model and see what I can dig up and I'll get back to you on what you can and cannot do.

VIP 922 wont start up


David J McClure,

I can definitely provide more information on this. There isn't a way to transfer the hard drive from the old receiver to the new one, but our HD DVR equipment does have the option of using an EHD to backup and store recordings.

If you are able to get the old receiver working temporarily, all you need to do is plug in an EHD and it will ask you to format. Once it is done, you can transfer recordings to the hard drive for additional storage space, and to back them up so they can be transferred to a replacement if it is needed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see you want to get your recordings offyour DVR receiver to a hard drive through your USB slot. Depending on thereceiver and external hard drive or device you have and you will need to makesure it meets all the requirements, if you are using the 522 or 625 DVRreceivers you can only use the Pocket DISH portable media players. Those modelsthat are compatible are; AV402E, AV500E and AV700E, if you have any questionsplease e-mail me at michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

My VIP622 keeps jumping back to live TV when I try to back up while watching live TV, or if I resume playing after pausing. But if I've recorded a whole program, I can play, pause, back up okay.


Hello, my name is Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service, I reviewed your question I have seen this before, t sounds like its possibly a bad hard drive try unplugging your reciever for ten seconds if it's persisting then we may need to replace it.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show


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.

You must be talking about the 522 DVR. If so then there could be issues with your hard drive or a cableing issue. be sure to connect all sat in connections and if you conitune to have this issue call 1-800-333-3474 for tech support as your issue could take extensive troubleshooting. More than likely your will get a replacement DVR and if you still have the same issue then a tech will need to come out to check cableing, ground and lnb's on your dish.

Dvr not recording


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.

Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive


usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$
