Re: DVR keeps pausing

The pausing can be a sign that the DVR is having memory allocation problems. These are software issues and cannot be repaired, look for a software update to your unit. In addition if it is a hardare issue I would check the signal into the unit because when the picture freeze it could be due to a drop in signal. Now if these two are not the cause there is a third possibility, and that is a defective hard drive or memory storage device and its associative circuitry in the unit. I would suggest that you either have this unit replaced by the company that supplied it or take it to a qualified repair center.

Motorola DCT6200 DVR Recorder does not play stored video when cable signal is loss

My VIP622 keeps jumping back to live TV when I try to back up while watching live TV, or if I resume playing after pausing. But if I've recorded a whole program, I can play, pause, back up okay.

Hello, my name is Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service, I reviewed your question I have seen this before, t sounds like its possibly a bad hard drive try unplugging your reciever for ten seconds if it's persisting then we may need to replace it.

My dvr shows a 1hr program fully recorded, and begins playback fine. After almost 10 min playback ends but when paused, continues to show another 50 min available.

Hello! Daniel Busa with Dish Network here. That actually happened to me about a month ago a hard reset resolved it for me. If that doesn't do it try deleting all of the recordings that don't play back correctly,reset it again and keep an eye on things, it may be a bad box.

Are you still having problems with your receiver? Anytime you are not able to perform DVR functions, it is usually an indication of a hard drive problem. Are you getting an error message (maybe 024) when the functions are not working? Please let me know if you are still having problems and I would be happy to assist you.

DVR refuses to rewind or pause live TV or record


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.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show

Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07
you can go into the DVR and replace the hard drive but I would suggest getting Dish Home Plan, Replace the receiver and then cancel the Home Plan. Talk to Dish Network and they will work with you.
