Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that there is probably nothing you can do as a lightening strike will have no doubt fried the electronic components inside the unit.
The only thing you can try and it's not guaranteed to work is to unplug the unit from the wall and leave it off for a couple of hours to see if the unit will reset, also make sure you reset your surge protectors if you have any.



Regards.

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.

If I don't have a cable or satellite television service how to install a VIP 622 DVR HD Antenna


Mount the dish on a pole or house using a mast perfectly plumb. Ensure it will give you an unobstructed view of the sky based on the information that should have come with the dish regarding your zip code for skew, elevation and azimuth settings. You will now need to run one line from the LNB on the end of the skew arm to your 622. Remember to use a seperater inside or you will need to run another line into the back of the receiver. Run a hardwire off back of the receiver's home distribution port to . Connect a line from 3-4 on back of the receiver to your TV 1. ....More to come if needed drop me another line.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Phillips dvr won't power up. Lost power at house


Try hooking it up to another (working) electrical outlet. If that doesn't work, there's several possible problems.

The most likely is that the box was fried when a larger-than-usual current traveled down the line (or even down the coax if lightning struck and your system isn't adequately grounded); the electrical outlet is either pushing too much or too little power; or your house's ground polarity is reversed.

More than likely your box is bad. If you don't know very much about electrical systems, don't go messing with your ground or any outlets without a wall plate.

Connecting a Dish 622 Receiver to the HTR500 and a Sony HDTV TV


I haven't researched to actual manuals for your equipment, but I'm guessing that the optical may be disabled when the HDMI is used. You could try using the component video outputs to the TV and then the optical to the Onkyo.
