Question about DISH Network DVR 510 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

510 DVR has to reload sat signal when accessing recorded events.

It's a DISH Network 510 receiver that frequently 'fritzes out' when accessing recorded events. First the entire TV screen will turn a solid color (green, pink, white - usually green) and then the receiver has to reaquire the satellite signal before being able to access the recorded event. This problem only started within the past week. My guess is that it was either a software upgrade or the receiver is dying. Any ideas?

There was not a software upgrade in the last month for the 510 according to Dish Network. With that being said the issue is more than likely a bad hard drive. If you have to replace the receiver ask about a non dvr model that supports an external hard drive. This will allow you to keep from paying the dvr fee every month and allow you to have better control of your recordings eg. more record time, saved recordings if receiver needs to be replaced etc. There is a 39.99 one time fee for Dish to enable this feature but it is well worth it in my opinion. You may also want to check out the line of Sling media they have available also if you are an avid TV fan.

Hello, my name is Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service. Whats probably causing the issue would be that either you're not getting high enough signal strength on the 61.5 satellite. Otherwise there could be an issue with the box if you swap it with another reciever in the home, and the issue follws it you'll need a new box.

DVR refuses to rewind or pause live TV or record


ruukasu2005,

If you are still experiencing problems with your 625 receiver performing live DVR functions, try unplugging the receiver for about 10 seconds and plugging back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and acquire satellite signal. After the picture returns, then try to pause. If it still doesn't work, then we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07

err 836 means you have changed your recvr to a different dish or LNB's or your missing one or more satellites needed for your installation or programming needs. if this has been in the same location and connected tot he same dish and you dont have sats 105,or 121 listed in the install summary then you will need a technician to check your dish. It could be out of alignment or a faulty LNB.

Want to copy shows recorded to DVR onto computer Howto...


ArmyMason,
Unfortunately as a Dish Network Employee I must inform you that acording to Dish that is not possible however a good computer tech may be able to help you with a work around but keep in mind that if any damage occurs to the receiver that Dish will charge you for the receiver. When you do upgrade check into the receiver models that have an expansion port for an external hard drive. A 211 which is a solo hidefinition receiver without DVR can have a port activated for as one time charge of 39.99 and you can use the hard drive you supply as the DVR. Yoiu also will not be accessed the 5.98 DVR fee every month and if the receiver needs replacing you still have your recordings. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I want to copy the programs recorded on my dvr 510.


According to engineering aspects of the 510 it is not designed to allow the recordings to be transferred. The only option you have is the option you mentioned or purchasing the 510 and having it incorporated into the new system so you can access them. I am sorry I did not have any better news for you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.
