Question about DISH Network 311 DTV Receiver
My dish network receiver program guide never gets updated on its own. I have to every time scan ahead manually to get the message for updating the guide. Any idea why this is happening & how to fix it?
Thank you in advance.
Unplug your receiver from the power outlet and repower after 60 seconds. This should update the system and stop your issue. If it persists let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have never seen a Dishnet 301 or 311 automatically update, if you haven't checked guide for several days it will update before you can even view the guide. If you go out of the receiver Memory held guide it will update then to receive more future ward info. It will update again when you return to the present. Higher end receivers now advertise continuous updates on the fly.

You always want to ensure you have the updates being completed at a time that is most convenient for you, you can change the update time which is generally set to 3am, by going into your MENU selecting option 8 (Preferences) and then selecting option 4 (Updates) you will then be able to change the time the receiver completes updates if you desire and then please just make sure you are shutting your receiver off nightly to allow the updates to be successfully completed (this will help to prevent DVR issues). In addition, once you delete some of your recordings, powering it off nightly allows the hard drive to be refreshed and clears the deleted recording entirely. I hope this helps!
