Re: dish dvr 625 can't get dvd/vcr player to work with...
If you have the coax hooked to the VCR in you will need to change the VCR channel to 22 and leave the TV itself tuned to 3 or 4.. I recommend setting the vcr to 60 or 73 to see if you can get reception on there as that is usually the two channels that TV2 is modulated on. You can check the modulation by going to TV1 and pressing menu-6-1-5 on the TV1 remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

To whom it may concern,
As a technician whom has been in the field for nearly a decade, my suggestion is to contact Dish Network customer service and set up a technician visit.. I know that there are far too many variables that could influence my answer and how I structure it, likely leading to more issues.
Hello, Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service here. First thing to try is putting the TV on channel 73. At TV1, press menu on the remote, followed by 6-1-5 (system setup-installation-modulator setup), make sure that TV2 out is on cable mode, which should default to channel 73. If you're still not getting a picture, try performing a hard reset on the receiver. To perform a hard reset, unplug the receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds, then plug it back in. The receiver reboots (which can take about 5 minutes), then check TV2 again. If there is still no picture, make sure all of the cabling is secure, and bypass any other devices (VCR, DVD player, etc.). If this does not fix the problem, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure we get this taken care of for you.
I will assume it was installed to two rooms when installed otherwise it will need to be wired to the second TV.
If it was indeed installed to two TVs at the first tv location with the TV1 remote press MENU-6-1-5. You should now be at the modulator set up screen. Note what channel TV2 is modulated to generally 60 air or 73 cable.
Now go to the TV2 location and run a cannel search. If it does not find the channel go back to tv 1 and change the TV channel to the opposite setting of air or cable based on what it was previously set to and try the channel scan at TV2 again.
If it still does not pick it up then most likely it is not wired for that room. If the receiver was installed to one location Dish will need to wire the second location for you in order to achieve the desired outcome.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a valued Dish Network customer.
ANT. passthrough for an ant. connected to your 625 receiver will only work on tv 1. The only way to do this is to RF modulate your tv 2 coax to an RCA and hook the RcA cable to your tv2. then use another ant. to connect coax allowing you to pick up dish programing on an input and then going to the channels to enjoy local over the air programming.
Hi copperiamthere is some things that can be done to get your TV2 working. The first thingyou want to look at is the Modulator Setup (MENU-6-1-5) and make sure TV2 isset for channel 60 AIR, after that you will want to select done and then makesure TV2 is on channel 60 and if you still do not have a picture you will wantto make sure the connections are hand tight from the wall to the TV and thenyou will go to the receiver and unplug it for 10 seconds to reset it and afterit acquires signal you will see a picture on your second TV.

I am assuming you eliminated the vcr so if the cable is directly to the tv try changing the channel to a number beyond 69. If you are able to do this you will need to go to the tv with the receiver and turn them both on and press the menu button on remote 1 then press 6-1-5. This will be the modulator setup screen. Move the highliter to the left and select 73 cable. Move highlight back to right to done and exit ti live tv. Check tv2 now and see what you have ON CHANNEL 73. If you do not find picture and sound there try scrolling up to 116. Let me know the results.
I am probably stating the obvious here but here it goes:
If the 625 is connected to the tv using coax directly try using the RCA jacks to connect directly to the tv. If the 625 goes through a peripheral first, eliminate that peripheral and conect directly to the tv.If the problem exists with different media connections still at the same tv you can remove the coax off of the TV1(3-4) output on the back of the 625 and attach it to the TV2(CH60-73) output.You would then change your tv channel from 3 or 4 to ch 60air or 73 cable(which will be the same channel that TV2 is normally on in the remote room without the 625) Once you are on the right channel you will be able to tune TV1 to your local channel using the TV2 remote. If the audio is good here it eliminates the TV coax input on the TV1 and the coax cable connecting it as the source of the problem. You will have already eliminated any other inputs on the same tv as being faulty by using the other connecting media leaving you with the internal components of the receiver as being faulty. In this situation I know of no recourse except the obvious.
FIRST TRY CONNECTING THE RECEIVER TO THE TV VIA A DIFFERENT MEDIUM SUCH AS RCA INPUTS IF CURRENTLY CONNECTED WITH COAX.
If the problem is still evident you can send the TV1signal to TV2 or vice versa. This is accomplished by switching the output cables from tv 1 to tv 2 and changing the tv you want to use as your "monitor" to the proper channel. If viewing tv1 on tv2 change the TV channel from 60 air or 73 cable to 3. if using tv1 to view tv2 the process is the oppposite from 3 to 60air or 73cable.
To check which channel tv2 is modulated to do the following:
go to TV2 and with it on press menu, 6, 1, and then 5 on the Dish remote. That will dispay both tv output channels. You only need to be concerned with TV2.
This should isolate the problem by either it being present on both TV's using the TV1 output, which would mean the internals of the receiver are faulty, or if it is fine on the other TV it would indicate that the problem lies with the TV itself which is unlikely.This is assuming the FIRST method did noyt resolve the problem.
You may also want to try running the medium source from the back of the receiver directly to the TV.
This is all assuming you receive your locals through the satellite and not an off air antenna. Hope this helps you out.
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
