Hi tdarnold90my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and with the guide not showingprogramming there are some things that can be done. The first thing you willwant to do is unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and it will power back up and reacquirethe signal and download the program guide. After the guide finishes downloadingmake sure you see the programming listed, if there still is no programmingpress the MENU-6-1-1 buttons on the remote and on the Point Dish screen selectCheck Switch and then the Test button. After the test completes exit out of allmenus and it will reacquire the signal and download the program guide and checkthe guide again to make sure programming is listed. If you have any questionsplease e-mail me at Michael.houston@dishnetwork .com.
Hello! For these issues, here are a few simple steps:
First, for the DVR recording shows, you just need to delete those timers. They may have accidentally been set up.
1. Menu, 7-Daily Schedule
3. Edit list
4. Select any timers that you did not create, or want deleted. This will stop them from recording!
For the program guide:
You just need to download the program guide. Here's a couple easy ways:
1. Pull up the Guide
2. Press 999 then the right arrow button (Browse) until the guide prompts a download,
1. Pull up a menu. Press 6 (Sys setup) -1(Installation) - 1( Point dish)
2. Highlight and select Check Switch on the upper right
3. Select test at the bottom left. (If a message comes up between steps 2 and 3, select yes. )
4. Press VIew live tv, and allow the Acquiring signal message and the guide download to go through.
The first would be that if your neighbor has Dish Network and they have their TV2 near yours it could be picking up their recording preferences. This would create a recording specific to let's say MONSTER TRUCKS.
The next is if you notice MONSTER TRUCKS when trying to view an intended recording at the beginniong or end of the desired recording. This can occur if the start time an end time for your recordings have been set to begin before your intended recording and end after the intended program completed. You can edit this by pressing the DVR button, my recordings, schedule, timers, pick a recording from the list and press select, now press options and you will see the timer options which will allow you to manipulate the start early time and end late time among other things.
Lastly is that your program guide is out of date or the guide is totally errant. Unplug the receiver from the wall for a minute and repower it. This will force the system to update itself if it is not intefered with during this process. If after this procedure the same issue is occurring and the guide says the program you want recorded but retrurns an unwanted one then the guide is corrupted on the Dish Network side and will be repaired as soon as possible.
what you will need to do to correct this problem is delete the series recording. in your list (push list button) highlight the program you wish to delete, push select go to "rec. series" press select. and delete ALL push select... get "ok" message, select again. and reset receiver on front panel of receiver there is a door you can open, hit the red reset button and then setup your series record again by going into the guide and pressing record twice. this will fix the problem by deleting ALL of the series record and resetting, and resetting up series record
You probably will be able to for a little while, until the headend your DCT talks back to gets around to polling it. Polling is when the main computer checks all of the cable boxes in its' domain for channel auths, pay-per-view purchases, and other behind the scene info. If the DCT isn't registered on the system, the headend will send a disconnect signal...eventually.
This may happen in either a couple of days, or a few days, (hedging here) depending on the polling schedule.
You may also find that while the DCT is operating, initially, the channel map maybe different, if your box was from another city or state.
As to whether Comcast will allow registering a box that was bought, and not rented properly through them, that is highly debatable. There's no rule I am aware of against that, however.
