Question about Philips Televison & Video

2 Answers

Prior to the recent installation of Direct TV I was with DISH. I switched to Direct when Dish attempted to charge me for a new full package cost because I wanted to re-activate a Dish receiver which I had purchased 10 years earlier and deactivated because of lack of use. My problem now is that I want to have my direct TV signal fed from the Direct TV DVR into my DVD for copying as I did for years with Dish. No one at Direct TV has been able to make this happen. When Coupling from the Direct TV DVR to the Philips model DVDR72 the DVDR72 indicates there is no signal in. Can someone in Tech Support give me some guidance. None of the Techs here in Albuquerque have been able to assist. I can play DVDs from the Philips unit to the TV but I cannot produce DVDs from the Direct TV DVR. Thanks for you assistance.

    The problem is not with the Direct TV DVR or with acquiring the satelite signal. It's with the DVDR. Go back and read my initial post.

After it is hooked up, it should have a white screen saying "searching for satellite signal." After fifteen or twenty minutes, it will go to a black screen saying the same thing in a blue box. Once you are there, you can prerss the LIST button on the remote and record and copy your selected shows. This is assuming you have a newer DVR. Model R15 or higher. thanks keep updated

There is no picture on tv


1.is the tv plugged in & getting electric?
2. Does the tv show a raster,a blue screen.
3.is the tv getting an input signal , assuming that the answer to 1 &2 was yes.
4. Is your cable box plugged in.
5. are all the connections into your cable box connected
or did one fall of
6. did you pay your cable bill on time.
If your cable box is bad , the cable company should fix or replace it for free. If you or someone else unhooked the connections,say by tripping over them,the cable company will restore the connections and chatge you a service call fee.
7. do you have dish or direct tv? either of those services will loose picture if it is raining out and picture wont come back until after the storm passes.
8. if you have dish or direct tv, and a branch,a person or an animal, a bird, has fallen on the dish/direct tv antenna, it may have misalligned the dish and it will no longer recieve the satalite signal. THere is a reallignment service
available;dish network charges $95.00 unelse you have insurance,like i do,so it only cost me $15.00 I never had direct tv soi could not say, but dish net claims direct tv is more expensive

You can allign the antenna yourself ,if it is not on a steep roof. You need one person moving the antenna & another person at the tv telling him if the picture is getting better or worse. The dish box comes with a built in signal strength gague for that purpose.

enjoy considering these options and they next time you ask
please enclose all the information that you can so that we have something to go on and work with.

We recently moved our dish ( we are in an rv) and now we get a signal on one tv only. we have dish network and a 625 DVR. we have moved many times and have never had a problem before. in order to switch...


5shades690,

Are you still having problems with your TV 2 off the 625 receiver? You have a cable off the back of the receiver, TV 2 Home Distribution. That's feeding to your TV 2 location. You might check to make sure it is secure. You can also see if that cable screws into a diplexer if it is being back feed through the satellite cables. These are all potential problem spots, especially since you said it was working before. I hope this helps.

Dish net 311 no power


Dish Network (Echo Star Communications) is a problem company. The best solution to your problem is to switch to cable or Direct-TV.

Dish Network should be avoided at all costs.

SATELLITE DISH


Sure you can, if you have Dish Network go to the receiver and turn the TV and receiver on. Then press menu-6-1-1. This takes you to the point dish screen. You will come out with better results using a compass to find the azimuth the dish should be pointed toward and bore sighting the dish by pointing it in that direction. You then will need to move the dish in very minute increments pausing for 15 to 20 seconds after each move to ensure the satellite signal can be found. If you have ran a check switch prior to this and have lost all satellites you more than likely will not receive a signal until you run another check switch and have found the signal of at least one of the orbitals. If this proves to be to tedious and many times it will you can usually find an inexpensive signal pointing device at a store like Radio Shack. Hope this is some assistance to you. Let me know if I can be of additional assistance and thank you for using Fix Ya.

Digital ready?


That model is not DTV capable, however if you switch to Direct TV or Dish Network, then the receiver takes care of the conversion for you. Else, you will need the converter box.
