Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

1 Answer

Dish Network DVR not totally controlled from PC (Win Media Ctr)

I have a PC with Windows Vista and a TV Card. I can watch and record TV perfectly well, but the problem is that Windows Media Center only includes the most basic functions like channel up, down, type the channel number & volume. I'd like to use other functions, like turn the DVR on and off, watch my recorded shows in the DVR, see the guide, or change the language.

I only want to use the PC for this, NO RENOTE CONTROLS, becuase I'm connecting remotly to my pc at home. Is there any software that would emulate the Dish Network DVR and send the right commads thru my Infrared blaster? Something like Slingbox, but I don't want to buy the slingbox, since I have my PC alredy connected to my DVR

Thank you

Alfonso,
I do not know if you have received an answer to your post by other means but I know of no way that that is possible with the current configuration of the receivers Dish has out presently. You have already opted out of the slingbox option so that leaves me with one last suggestion which is that Dish is coming out with a new receiver SOON that will have the slingbox incorporated into it so that you connect it to your ethernet connection and you are in business. I will send you all info on the new receiver if you like.

How do I get to my list of programs already set record?


Wayne,

It is easy to access that list. It can be accessed by pressing the 'DVR' button 3 times to access the daily schedule. This will show you all of the timers set up in a day.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Was watching recorded events, left the room and came back to a black screen, with no sound....tried unplugging dvr and back in with no luck...changed tvs still same result


christy39467,

When you had the black screen on your TV, did you have a banner on the top of the screen displaying the channel and information about the channel? If so, then unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back in will resolve that issue.

If you had the black screen without the banner, it is a different issue. Please let me know if you had any other messages on your TV screen (No signal, weak signal, etc.).

Hello, you will probably will just need to try to program your remote to your tv. You can follow the steps to get this working. This may have been resolved, but you can do this in the future, or if you have any questions. I hope this helps. You will want to follow steps 6 and beyond.

Remote control interferes with second TV


si24

It is possible that the 2 remotes are on the same remote address. This generally is not possible if one remote is IR and the other is UHF but with some receivers you can have an UHF remote for you TV 1. To resolve this issue you would need to readdress on of the remotes to a different remote address. I have provided instructions on how to readdress the remote. I hope this helps.

  • Remote: All Other Remotes
    1. Go to System Info screen
    2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
    3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
    4. Press the pound (#) button
    5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

topscrew2002

From what you have written, when you try to record on your DVR the remote stops working, is that correct? How long has this been happening? Have you received a new remote? If yes and it is still happening, you are probably getting IR interference from some source in that room. It could be from a florescent lamp, another player, or even the TV. Is the receiver in a open space or in an enclosed area? The IR sensor has to have a direct line of sight to work properly. You may also check on the receiver if anything is obstructing the sensors, maybe dust. I hope this helps.

The rewind/ff/record and pause buttons won't work. Everything else seems fine.


This will be due to either your Hard Drive crashing if you cant also access your recordings. if so then i would reccommend call dish At 800-333-3474 bercause your 721 DVR is outdated and discontinued. It also is in patent dispute with tivo. When you contact dish they will offer you a new dual tuner DVR reciver with way more recording time. this upgrade should be free of charge as well.
