Question about DISH Network ViP622 DVR DTV Receiver / 180-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Dish dvr 622 will not record two shows at once

I guess somehow we've managed to change a setting without realizing it because we can no longer program our DVR to record two shows at the same time. When I try to set the second recording I get a warning to confirm skip or cancellation of the recording for the same time period. I should be able to record two shows at the same time -- one on TV1 and the other on TV2 but the DVR is not allowing it anymore. Any suggestions for troubleshooting would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Deborah Haviland,

I can understand the concern with that receiver not doing the 2 recordings. There isn't a specific setting that stops it, so the receiver itself may be having trouble. Unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug it back in.

If the problem persists we would have to replace the receiver. If you can send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com with the account or phone #, I can definitely check into that with you.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dual transmitter DVR has stopped recording on TV2.

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres and I am with DISH Network Customer Service. I have never heard of receiver only recording on one tuner but not on the other but I would like to see if we can find a solution for you. The first step to try in order to resolve your issue is make sure that you do not have any timers conflicting with each other. If you do have two different timers that are set to record at the same time it can cause the DVR to record one show and not the other. Another trouble shooting step to try is a hard reset by unplugging your receiver for ten seconds then plugging the cord back in. After you have allowed your DISH receiver to reset try your DVR recording functions again. If both of these options are not correcting the problem please feel free to email me at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com so that I can ask you a few more questions about your issue and get this resolved for you as soon as possible. Thanks and have a great day! :)

The option to change the default Recording TV is not available for clicking. It is grayed out. I am trying to turn the default to record on TV1 not TV2.


C Dunn,

I can definitely assist with this. You'll want to access the Record Plus screen from the menu to make that change.

To get there go Menu > Preferences > Record Plus. Once there you can choose a default TV to record, or disable the feature so it will record on the tuner you are using, first. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Justin Warshowsky,

There is no way to change the format once PIP is in use. Try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. I would also recommend making sure your formats on both TV's are set correctly.

If the problem persists, send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and I can look into submitted a report to our Operations team to check it out.

Dvr VIP622 will only record up to 20 episodes, still has 148 free hours left...whats the cause and fix?


hmaddison21,

Our 622 receivers are able to record more than just 20 episodes. There is a setting you can change to ensure it keeps any recordings.

Press the DVR button 3 times to go to Daily Schedule. Once there select "Timers" and then manually select the timer that you're having problems with. Go to Options and on the bottom is a "Maximum Recorded Events" section. This is where you can tell the receiver how many episodes to hold before automatically deleting them. Delete the timer and reset it up, make sure that box has a # symbol in it. If the problem continues afterwards, let me know here!

Dish changing channel to new recording while watching *pre-recorded* program


rjvdw,

Try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds then plugging it back in, and see if the problem is resolved. The receiver should only switch if you are watching live TV instead of a recording.

If the problem persists, and you are for sure not on Live TV, the receiver may need to be replaced. If it continues you can send me an email at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com, and I can assist you further!

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.

My dish DVR HD control doesn't work


lumaes200,

You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

How do I transfer recorded programs from my 622 DVR to my home computer?


http://www.dishnetwork.com/downloads/user-guides/receivers/622_UserGuide.pdf
User guide. above.
You would have to connect up, using a PC & DVR software and some form of TV/Video recording Card, or USB device. Then connect up via AV, Composite, Yellow, Video. White & Red Audio. and "Capture" either live video & Audio, so basically whatever was viewed on the screen, would be "Recorded" on the PC, via the TV/Video interface device, if using a laptop, then a USB "Dongle" & software would be the best. In a Desktop, a PCI-I card would be Best, Then using the Software that comes with the devices, you "Record" with that and "Play" with the Dish DVR, and save, the Streamed Video & Audio to the PC. Now, If you have Component Out, on the Dish, then this is the one to use, If you choose this way, remember the Device you are going to use Must have a Component INPUT as well, as A Stereo Audio Input, so ensure the device you get has that feature.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr


The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.
