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.

Hi there anil! My name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH, It is my pleasure to assist you. When watching an already recorded event and having a timer set up to record it should not interrupt your viewing of that DVR event. When this happened, did you get an error message on the screen?

Trying to program bose univeral remote to control vip622 dvr. I have tried the codes bose suggested.


Hi my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. I see you have a Bose universal remote and you want to program it to your VIP622 DVR. We do not have codes to setup other remotes to our DISH equipment. With our SD/HD receivers they are installed with a DISH universal remote that can control many different components including a Bose system. If you have any further DISH questions please e-mail me at michael.houston@dish.com

Hey russ fenton,

On the 625 receiver; the Dual mode allows you to record in one room and watch live TV in the other or watch live in one room and a recording in the other.

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other


Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.

DISH DVR doesn't respond to remote


  1. If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
  2. Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
  3. Press SYS INFO.
  4. Press Record multiple times on your remote.
  5. Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
  6. If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
  7. If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.

510 DVR has to reload sat signal when accessing recorded events.


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.

Problem with DISH DVR 625


You can accomplish this by either going to the specific TV and selecting the record option at the time the program is about to come on or you can press menu-8-5 and change the record preferences. You can either set the DVR to record programs to the TV2 location by default or TV1 by enabling the record plus feature. In dual mode without record plus enabled all programs you select to record default to the tuner you are viewing e,g, if watching tv1 and selecting to record a program in the future it will record to the tv1 location.In single mode all recordings default to tv2 so you can continue to watch live tv from tv1. I hope this answers your question and thanks for using Fix Ya. Let me know if I can further assist you.
