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

1 Answer

Changing channels on its own.

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.

I have a foxstat -HDR humax box and I am getting no or bad signal on the TV downstairs. I can get some channels but not all.


I suspect that the box upstairs is a Freesat box; a Freeview box requires a feed from an aerial, not a dish.

The problem you are seeing may be caused by water in the cables, if they are not sealed at the LNB. The LNB may be failing, but dish misalignment is more likely.

As there is an unused output on the LNB, try swapping one of the feeds with a poor signal to it.

Hi, poog_23350, I caught your post! How a Duo DVR receiver works is that the TV you have it set to record on will not allow you to change the channel while the recording is in progress. The other TV, that isn't recording anything, can be used freely to flip through channels.

In this case, it's TV2, the one upstairs in your daughter's room, that's currently set to record on while the downstairs TV is free to use. This can be adjusted by pulling up the Main Menu with the Menu button on the remote, selecting option 8, then option 5, and changing the TV1/TV2 setting there on the Record Plus screen.

If you'd like a receiver capable of allowing channel changing while recording a program, our VIP 612 receiver is a Solo receiver that acts like a Duo. What this means is that it has one TV output and two tuners. Along with being able to change channels while a recording is in progress with this type of receiver, you can also record two programs on two different channels simultaneously.

Hope that helps!

Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here!!! If you want to do this! You would need a tech to come out and install the DVRs in the new rooms. If you try to move the reveivers, you will only get an Acquiring Satellite Signal message. If this has not been resolved, you can find us on Twitter, or blog back!

check that you have the sender plugged into the sky box and the receiver into the required tv and not the other way round. The wrong way round still allows the controller to change channels but you will see nothing also ensure that both sender and reciever are on same channel 1 to 4

Sky upstairs


Yes on the back of the box there is a RF2 output...

run a coaxil aerial cable from there to your required TV, you then need to tune the 2nd tv to the sky box.

You can also buy a 'Magic Eye' and a 'extra remote' this will allow you to change channels from the second destination with only 1 digi box.

Down point is that you have to watch the same channel on both tv's.

a second card and box and a dual LNB will allow you to watch seperate channels.

Digital television signals


What type of digital tv signal? Satellite or OTA (Local Digital Antenna Channels)?

What type of equipment is the split signal going to? Straight to the tv's or some sort of Satellite or HDTV Tuner box?

[2] 811 dishnet receiver


you need to program one remote with a different code, power off or unplug one of the receivers. Go to the other receiver and hit the system info button at the receiver. Now read the remote code at the bottom of screen would be a number between 1 to 15. Program the remote for a different code than what it shows. Push and hold down the sat button on the remote and leave go light will blink, enter code say 14 and the pound key. You will see the light blink 3 times on the remote. Now that code is entered in the remote now with that system info screen up on the tv watch at bottom where code is and hit the record key on remote and you will see it change to 14. All done . now just plug back in your other receiver.
