When we had the R15 (we have since upgraded) we could record two channels at once with no trouble. You have to have two satellite connections in the back (since it uses a separate tuner for each channel) and you cannot watch a third channel while recording two others - if you're going to watch, you have to watch one of the two shows you're recording.

My dish network DVR says it is recording a show in the guide but doesn't show up in my list of recordings. I have two tvs. I watch on tv 2. Why can't I watch my programs. I was told what ever...


Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see you can not watch recordings on TV2and you can't watch and record at the same time. The first thing you will wantto do is make sure the receiver is in Dual mode, I will send a link to helpwith these steps and if the problem still persist please e-mail me at michael.houston@dishnetwork.com. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/same-video-2-tvs

Can you record a program and watch live TV at the same time?


If you have a dual receiver, you can record to TV 2 and watch any program on TV 1. If you have 2 recordings taking place at the same time, you can only watch what is being recorded.

With a dual receiver, you can place the receiver in single mode and watch a different program even if 2 recording are taking place. In single mode both TV 1 and TV 2 will be watching the same program.

A solo DVR you can record to tuner 2 and watch what you want on TV 1. With the VIP 622 receiver, you have the Record Plus option, you can have all recording go to TV 2. If 2 recordings take place, then TV 1 and TV 2 are used.

Cant record two programmes at once


Well no matter the DVR, you should be able to record 2 programs at once...but you CANNOT watch a 3rd live while they are recording...also, if your DVR is hooked up to more than one tv and someone is watching something else in the other room, it will not record 2 at once, either. You can watch RECORDED programming while 2 others are recording, but not live tv.
You might want to check how many "inputs" your DVR has...most have 2 which allows the double recording...if you have an older DVR maybe you only can do one at a time. On my DISH box, they call these "TV1" and "TV2".

Hope this helps.

How to do 'timer' recording for 4or 5 hours instead of 'title' recording on 922 sling DVR?


bigelow100

The 922 receiver does not have the Time Based feature (Any program in the specified time frame will be recorded, regardless of name). You can setup timers with start early (up to 60 minutes) and end late (up to 90 minutes) for a/all timers. This would give you a 2 1/2 hour window plus the time for the program you want to record. I hope this helps.

Doesn't stop recording


Make sure there is no time overlap on any of the programs you have on the recorder.

That is the most likely problem

Problem with DISH DVR 625


You can accomplish this by either going to the specific TV and selecting the record option at the time the program is about to come on or you can press menu-8-5 and change the record preferences. You can either set the DVR to record programs to the TV2 location by default or TV1 by enabling the record plus feature. In dual mode without record plus enabled all programs you select to record default to the tuner you are viewing e,g, if watching tv1 and selecting to record a program in the future it will record to the tv1 location.In single mode all recordings default to tv2 so you can continue to watch live tv from tv1. I hope this answers your question and thanks for using Fix Ya. Let me know if I can further assist you.

Program prompting to be deleted before it was finished


Sounds like your DVR is running out of space try to free up some space on the DVR.Also there is a little bit of space at the end of the show after it prompts you to delete the show not much though.If you have plenty of space on the DVR simply increase the time it records by 3 minutes.that should take care of your problem.
