Question about DISH Network ViP 211 DTV Receiver
I am starting to get NO SIGNAL blue screens using HDMI with the VIP211 . sometimes the green light will flicker on / off real fast , then jsut die off , sometimes it will turn on , and actually acquire sat signal , then bam 5 min later, off to blue screen again . I gave it a good hard tap on top of the unit and it turned back on and has been working since, think i just need to get em to bring me a new one ? somethin must be loose in there...... I've tried running the power from it straight to outlet , ran through power surge protector , and through extension cord , all 3 gave me same results. Also it seems alot of channels the lyp sync is way off . this vip211 sucks or just dish network sucks with HDMI hdtv , what do you think ,
Hi Krichel Thereis a couple of things we can do to fix these issues so you can watch yourprogramming without interruption. The first thing you want to do is make sureall connections are tight and secure. Then push MENU-6-1-1 on the remote andyou will see Check Switch tab on the top right and select Test. After the testcompletes you will want to clear out of all the menus and let the receiverrequire the signal and you will have your programming and the lips will be in sync.

Your vip211 may have been forcing a software update if the green light was blinking but you for sure have problems if it still has the same issue, just call dish and have them send you a new one. The vip 211 is a great recvr, you can hook up an external hard drive and have a DVR with no DVR fee, however there is a one time cost of 39.95 to activate your Hard drive but witht eh issues you have ben having they would more than likely waive this cost for you. i would for sure ask if you need to replace the receiver.

Hello, my name is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. I'm sorry about any inconvenience, but the ViP211 is not a DVR receiver. If you have an external hard drive, you can activate the feature on the 211 to allow you to record movies to the external hard drive. It is a one time $40 to activate the external hard drive feature. Also, we can always look at getting a DVR receiver installed to replace the 211. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
