I fixed it by reprograming the remote. This is how! Point the remote away from the DVR and press and hold the TV power button and the Directv button on the remote at the same time until the red light at the end of the remote comes on and stays on when you release the buttons. Then press the thumbs down button on the remote (3) three times and press enter on the remote. This corrected my problem which set the remote as a new remote. You will have to reporgam your TV code into the remote to operate the volume on your TV .

Tv says receiver is not on and do not respond to remote control


Hi Jackiewes928, I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. It is my pleasure to assist you today. I understand that the only channel you are currently getting is channel 116 and that your remote is not responding. Do any buttons at the top light up on the remote when you try to change channels? If so, what button lights up in red or green? if any button other the SAT button lights up this means that the remote is not on SAT mode and this would be why is not responding. In order to put the remote in SAT mode press the SAT button for 3 seconds. Once you do this try using the remote. If you need further assistance please feel free to reach me directly at kimberly.escobar@dish.com

How do I progam my remote so it works with dish.. it seems to be stuck on only TV setting, not on SAT!


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. If the remote will not change from "TV" mode to "SAT" mode, try changing the batteries first. If changing the batteries makes no difference and you still can not get the remote to change to "SAT" mode, the remote is defective and needs to be replaced. If it does change to "SAT" mode, but is not working you can try putting system info on your screen, (power off the receiver using front panel button, the press "up" arrow on the front of receiver). When systeminfo is on your screen, on the remote press the "SAT"button one time, and then press the "record" button threetimes. Try pressing select to see if it is now working. You canalso try to hard reset your receiver. To perform a hard reset, you unplugthe receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds, then plug it backin. Try reprogramming the remote again with the first part of theseinstructions. If the remote is still not working, it may be faulty. If this has not been resolved please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com. Hope this helps!

The tv is jammed. Remote is fine but have pressed the wrong button


It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux modes. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

Hughes SD DVR40 suddenly "reboots"


It's most likely your hard drive. If it happens at the same point in the recording, or if you can delete a program and then record something else and it does it again, it is hitting a bad spot on the hard drive. Your best option is to replace the hard drive and you should be good to go.

You have to have a remote control to set the chanel to 00. You cannot set the chanel to 00 with the chanel buttons on the front of the tv.

Remote does not work


Do the buttons on the front panel of the unit work?

If so, try doing this:

Hit the tivo button, go down to messages and setup and into to system information. Go down a few screens until you see remote code. Hold (on your remote) the tivo button and pause button for about 5 seconds. Then hit 0-9 on your remote to set the code. It's a single digit code only. You'll see your remote light flash. Now, try hitting the back button and see if your remote works. If it does, great. If it doesn't that means one or more of the following:

1) Your remote is defective
2) Your IR receiver on the unit isn't working correctly.

If #2 is the problem, you'll need to open up the unit, powered down! and make sure the thin, greyish ribbon cable in the front of the motherboard is 100% in. If it's not all the way in, it will cause issues.

Hughes SD-DVR40 has video delays. the video stops every 5 seconds and when you press a button on the remote there is a delay for the response.


Video delays, running slow, and pixel glitches are indicators of Hard Disk Drive read and write errors. The shows you record are stored on a computer Hard Disk Drive within the DVR. If you have the original 40GB (35 hour) Western Digital Drive and it has never been replaced, it is a sure sign it is beginning to fail. You can either send it out and have it replaced or if you are electrically and mechanically inclined and want to try it yourself or have a computer genius living next door, the drive replacement is a simple process. You will need to obtain a pre loaded, pre initialized hard disk drive replacement for this Hughes DVR. You can purchase them online at www.weaknees.com. The smallest replacment is a 70 hour drive (80GB)They sell high quality pre configured Maxtor drives especially designed as replacements for DVR Drives. There are step by step instructions included with the drive. Any qualified electronics guru or computer tech should be able to replace the old drive with the new preconfiged drive. It is about a 30 minute job. Once installed and powered up the Receiver/DVR will act like it is a brand new receiver. You will have to call Directv to reauthorize your receiver again. If they ask, you can explain that you had a technician replace a faulty hard drive on your owned receiver and you need to reauthorize it. You will discover this when you power up with the new drive. The new drive should fix the delay problem. You will also need to set up your remote for your TV through the Remote setup menu again unless you remember the code (I can't). When you access the remote setup, the instructions will be displayed on the screen. Just scroll down to your brand of TV and input the different codes one at a time until you find one that works.
