Question about Arris DSR922

1 Answer

Have a DSR 922 that I can not get W5 to program in the satellite list. When I highlight it and push enter it all ways returns to the current satellite I was on, insted of letting me move the dish to the W5 location to set it in memory and save. All the others work OK. Have not had any programming service for a few years. Only use it for the free service and a Pansat FTA receiver. Do you think it needs a hit and if so how can I do it since I have no provider.

Do not know if I solved the problem yet. Went on Skyvision site and somebody had the same problem. They told him he would have to do a Master reset, and reprogram all satellites and east/west limits. Just haven't had time to do this yet. Will let you know if it works.

VIP 922 wont start up


David J McClure,

I can definitely provide more information on this. There isn't a way to transfer the hard drive from the old receiver to the new one, but our HD DVR equipment does have the option of using an EHD to backup and store recordings.

If you are able to get the old receiver working temporarily, all you need to do is plug in an EHD and it will ask you to format. Once it is done, you can transfer recordings to the hard drive for additional storage space, and to back them up so they can be transferred to a replacement if it is needed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you have DISH Network equipment, you can try a check switch test on your receiver so the receiver can update its information from the satellite. With the DISH remote press the Menu button which will display Main Menu on the TV screen.

Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1(Point Dish). Highlight the CHECK SWITCH button on the upper right of the screen and press the Select button on remote. On the Installation Summary screen, highlight the TEST button at the bottom of screen and press the Select button on the remote. This will initiate the test. Allow the test to complete. Once completed, exit out of each screen till you get Acquiring Satellite Signal on TV screen. After acquisition completion, allow it to download the program guide. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a new receiver. I hope this helps.

DSR 922- to begin with it wouldn't shut off, no function will work with the remote, unplugged it and replugged it and now there is nothing but the inspirational channel on G3 217. H20


IF the receiver lost its sat settings you had, you best check the internal battery. the lithium battery should be 3.70 volts...if its dead you need to replace it, without interupting the power source...this will also cause you to lose your unit ID number. then you won't be able to subcribe to programming...the 922 can be repaired if the battery dies.

Dvr stuck on ''receiving satellite info'' when reset.


When it's rebooting, on the first blue screen press 02468 on the remote. This will force a software update. If you have trouble getting it enter at the right time or you just want to make sure, just keep pressing 02468 until it goes to the update. It won't hurt any thing. Hope this helps.

It has been a while since I worked on these kind of electronic equipment and I do not remember or kept any notes about specific troubleshooting. I worked for a company before that was repairing these motorola satellite receivers for starchoice Canada.
Are you using the audio/video inputs or RF input?
Where in Canada do you live?
