It also could be that the DVR is programmed for one satilite connection. I has the problem with a bad cable and it would still record but it was a blank screen. You need to go into the menu and setup area and check the setting.

If it is a new dvr then is was not programmed but if it just stopped then look at the cable. Some DVR's may block access to the SAT. connection with no signal but not all of them.

A slight change that the mulitplexer at the dish went bad.

Check the back of the DVR to make sure BOTH cables from the dish are properly connected to the receiver. Make sure they are properly tightened. It sounds like one of them has come loose, because if the receiver only has one working cable coming in from the dish it can only do one thing at once- you can only record one show at a time with one cable. You can also go into the receiver's setup menu and run a system test, which will help you diagnose the issue.

This is a problem that many have. If you are recording on TV1, and the receiver is in dual mode, then you are only able to watch what you record. But you can set your recording to TV1, and then put the receiver into single mode, and switch from the recording to live TV.

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 Network DVR 625 Problem with playback of recorded shows


It sounds as though the hard drive is about to go south on you soon and the receiver is going to need to be replaced however, in the interim you can change the options of the recordings and make it a default so that the recording continues past the end of the show. It is possible that extending this time will allow you to view the portion you want before it skips to the end. In order to do this press the guide button and select a program in the future. On the create timer screen select the option icon. You will now be at the timer options screen you can extend the time the recording will last after the end of the show and when it will begin recording prior to the show. I would also set this as your systems default so that it performs the same way regardless of what you are recording. According to the latest known receiver issues this is not identified as it is a common indication that the hard drive has an error internally. If this works I suggest that you have a replacement sent to you so that you do not lose the use of your DVR un-expectantly.Remember to watch all recorded events prior to replacement as you will lose that info when the receiver is swapped. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Shows canceled?


Make sure u have signal on both tuners on the DVR ( check it in your set-up screen). both tuners should have the same siganl strength. Directv's DVRs, if installed correctly, give u the option of recording one channel and watch another, or recording 2 seperate channels( 2 tuners). If you are recording 2 seperate shows and u change the channel one of your recordings will cancel .

DVR recording problems


i am not terribly familiar with these systems but there are probably two sattelite in ports on the back of the receiver, one is a line for watching one program or recording, the other strictly for recording, one of these inputs is probably no longer receiving signal
