Im sure you have already solved this problem or won't be checking back for answers, but we had the same problem with our system and we called about it.  They said it was a problem with the remote and sent us a new one.  The new one is working fine

Do the batteries actually go out or do you just get a msg on the tv saying the batteries are low? It may be a software issue in the receiver.
Either that or you are pressing buttons more than you think.

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...

Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

What is DISH Solo DVR VIP 612 Limited Mode?

You can program your remote control in Limited Mode to keep from accidentally changing the channel on your TV or VCR and causing a snowy or blue screen.

  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for TV mode, you will only be able to use POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME functions for your TV.
  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for VCR mode, you will only be able to use POWER and the VCR functions for your VCR.
Note: Limited Mode is not used with amplifiers (AUX mode).

I hope that helps.

When using remote for the DVR there is a 10 second delay. There never used to be. There isn't a delay on the other receiver. Can you help?

Hi cadroste there is a few simple solutions to what's goingon. The first thing you want to make sure the batteries are no older than 60days. Then you want to make sure if there were any changes to the room there isno interference such as computer tower or florescent lighting. As well if it ison TV2 you want to make sure the Remote Antenna on the back of the receiver is screwedin hand tight. If it is the 2nd TV you may need to add a booster cable to theback, it will boost the signal to the 2nd TV. The last thing you will want todo is reprogram the remote, I will send a link showing how to do that.

DISH DVR doesn't respond to remote

  1. If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
  2. Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
  3. Press SYS INFO.
  4. Press Record multiple times on your remote.
  5. Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
  6. If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
  7. If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.

I can't get remote to work unless i am right next to dvr. dvr will not pick up commands from remote unless i am within 12 inches of unit most of the time. other times it will work from my bed about 15 feet...

Take you an alcohol wipe and clean the front panel of the sensor on the unit and the little bulb on the remote.  Take out the batteries and spray a little WD-40 on a rag and wipe the copper connections inside the remote.  Put new alkaline batteries in and you should be g to g.

My dvr skips after 2 minutes of playing then freezes completely on one remote location. I have switched receivers with a different and the problem stays with the original room.

If the problem is staying in the room Then yo may have a large magnetic force such as a subwoofer or a speaker to close to the dvr,

DVR's use hard drives like computers, which are a "magnetic" medium, There fore if you have too strong of a magnetic force next to the dvr, then you are casing read errors in the dvr's hard drive,

Another option is possible bad/dirty power to the reciver, one quick way to check is run an extention cord from a room that you know the dvr has worked in and see if the problem goes away, if it does then i would get an electrician to check out power in the "bad" room.
