Question about DISH Network ViP622 DVR DTV Receiver / 180-Hours Video Recorder
This may seem alittle freaky, but w have two dvrs in our house and the downstairs one works fine, but the upstairs has some werid problems. no one can be upstairs all day and the dvr lights for upstairs will be on. there also have been times where you could be watching a show and the remote is not near, and it will start changing channels on its own. i am not really sure what is going on here,but if anyone has any idea of what to do please let me know, thanks.
Provided the receiver is in dual mode than the problem lies in the remote address for your TV2 remote. Take the TV2 remote to the TV1 location associated with that system. With the TV1 remote and TV on press menu menu on the TV1 remote this will bring you to the System Info Screen. Near the bottom of the screen there will be two remote addresses- primary=TV1 and Secondary=TV2. Make note of these and go to the other dvr receiver you have and do the sam as you did before. It is important that the address for the secondary remote at the first location and the remote address for the secondary at this location if on a duo receiver are not the same. Now go back to the TV1 location you were oiginally at and using the TV2 remote press and hold the small clear SAT button until all light across the top light up. Now key in a two digit number that is different from the original secondary address at this location and also different than the address at the other location. Now press the pound key and the SAT button will flash thrice. Now press the record button a few times until the secondary address changes to the number you selected. Once this is doone you can exit out of all screens on all receivers and go to the TV2 location that was having the issue and it should be resolved. More than likely either a neighbor had their remote address the same as yours if they are within a 100 feet or the remote address defaulted to the same as the other dvr. I hope this helps you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If you need further assistance please let me know.
