Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have 2 Dish Receivers. 1 of them is a DVR and I can store recordings onto an external USB harddrive. I'd like to be able to watch these recordings from my second receiver without having to physically unplug and carry the harddrive over. Anyone know if there are networking devices that allow me to achieve this?

Most receivers I have seen do not have a networking option. However let me know the make and model of both of your receivers and I will look up if there is a chance to do that.

Can i save all the recorded programs on my dvr to a memory stick\


Hello Anon,
The answer is both yes and no. Please, do not go to walmart and buy a regular memory stick, as they are NOT compatible with Dish equipment.
It is entirely possible to transfer recordings from your DVR to a storage device, but it will need to be Dish Network issued. Call into Dish Network and inquire about an "external hard drive" as they are available for individual purchase.
The external hard drive will be $99, but will store all you data without an issue. I sell these devices on a daily basis, they are easy to use and reliable. Don't make the wrong choice and pass up the right decisions, you spent a lot of time getting those recordings together. Do you really want to part ways with them over $99?I sure wouldn't, and that's why I have used one personally.

How do I restore deleted recordings from the DVR?


alsap111, we have no way of restoring deleted recordings. What I would recommend is picking up an External Hard Drive and you can use that to back up or store recordings. Just plug it in to the back of the receiver and follow the prompts on screen. It will be required to format so make sure everything is saved should there be anything on it.

Copy shows from dishnetwork 510 receivers to external hd


ic_technolog,

External Hard Drives are not supported on the 510 receiver. The 211, 211k, 411, 612, 622, 722, 722k, and 922 are all capable of having an external hard connected via the USB port on the receiver and a one time activation fee of $40. I hope this helps.

If you have a dish network system as listed in post a DVR 625 this is NOT possible, it will only work with VIP series Dish Network recivers. and they must be used on teh same model reciever such as Vip 722, tranfer to EXT HD then Watch on another 722!

How to attach an external hdd


Dish officially does not offer that service on the 625. It is only available on their Vip HD series receivers. You have to pay Dish a one time fee of 39.99 to have epansion port activated. Once that is done you just use a USB patch cable to connect the two devices.

Remove all the External Storage devices, make sure that you Un-Plug them Completely including their Power. After Resting the Dish Receiver, Plug-In everything back on and try.

Playback issues


Assuming that there is no loss of signal detected by the system and an 015 message being presented onscreen and that you have adequate record time available than your hardrive in the receiver is almost gone. You will need to have the receiver replaced. When this is done you will lose all recorded programs. The Dish Vip series of receivers offer a USB port that can be used to either expand the recording capacity of a DVR receiver with an external hardrive or if you get a non dvr unit e.g. 211, 222 you can eliminate the DVR fee each month by turning the option on for the external hardrive at a one time fee of 39.99. This will save you money by not paying the dvr fee anymore and alleviate having your recordings being lost if the receiver ever goes bad. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Dvr


It depends on the model of DVR you have. Some DVRs have USB ports that can be used to connect to one's computer, so theoretically you could also use an external hard drive. I haven't heard of anyone trying it, though.

Also, it is possible to link a DVR to a computer without the USB ports if you can find cable adapters for the inputs available on a computer.
