If you have a wide flatscreen tv it could be that the picture size is in the wrong mode. under the mode button on your tv remote should be two buttons labeled wide and zoom. try pushing these buttons to adjust the tv screen size.

How do i make picture fit screen? top and bottom of picture is missing


Some receivers have the ability to do this for you, for instance, all ViP and Hopper receivers from DISH can stretch or shrink the screen to fit. Most HDTvs also have this feature, independent of the type of input, using your TV remote find the button that says something along the lines of screen size, picture fit, stretch, aspect, etc. While watching a program that looks unlike the way you want it to, tap the button until the picture changes to the style you most prefer.

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume of your receiver, tuner, or stereo instead of your TV's volume?

e818a57.jpg


The first step in using the Universal Remote Control that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume level of your receiver, tuner, or stereo is to program the remote to control your audio device using the AUX mode button.

Once your remote controls your audio device in AUX mode, you probably want to continue to control the volume of your stereo even if the remote is in SAT, TV or VCR mode.

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the AUX button until all the mode buttons are lit, and then let it go.
  2. Press the POUND (#) button.
  3. Press the PLUS side of the VOLUME button.
  4. Press 0.
  5. Press the POUND (#) button. The AUX button flashes three times to tell you the programming is complete.
  6. Confirm the VOLUME buttons are operating the tuner/amplifier's volume control by pressing SAT or TV, and then adjusting the volume. Your tuner/amplifier's volume should change rather than your TV's volume.

Your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote is now setup to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in

I hope that helps.

Fix split screen


There is no split screen option in a Comcast box. If your TV has a duel tuner you can get 2 boxes one for each tuner and still use that option in your TV. If you have a split screen on your TV and one is snow then you will need use your TV remote it came with to exit out of it.

Guide only takes up 2/3 of bottom of screen. Shouldn't it extend all the way across?


Confused....you say, 2/3 of BOTTOM of screen? Are you pressing the "guide" button on the remote or the "ok" button? Pressing the "ok" button gives you a mini-guide, only taking up top or bottom of screen, depending on what you prefer. As for it not extending across the screen (sideways/left to right?), you probably have the output resolution set to HD (720p or 1080i). That will cause the fullscreen menus to preserve their 4:3 aspect. The menus were not designed for widescreen resolutions. If your box is set to SD (and 4:3 override to 'stretch'), it would stretch it across the entire screen (assuming you have 16:9 TV).

Motorola Dual Tuner PVR - DCT 6412-III --- HELP


Hi.
The information provided shows that tuner 2 isn't working at all on at least the selected channel. This could be a problem on just some channels with this tuner or possibly all channels. You can verify this by hitting the "SWAP" button on the remote to switch tuners while viewing a live program on a problem channel. If you choose the same channel for each tuner, I expect you will see program on one and "one moment please" or freezing or pixelation on the other. The confusion about recording comes about because of how the DCT6412 chooses which tuner to use for recording versus viewing. If you activate record on a channel you are watching, it will use that tuner. If you see it, it will record. For future or series recordings though it will automatically choose to use the alternate tuner so that it won't have to change your channel selection. Since there is no input signal detected on the other tuner, it will actually record but there will be nothing to see on play back. What causes this? It is probably that tuner 2 has failed. There is a slim chance that your cable signal coming in is either too strong or too weak but this is unlikely since the DCT6412 splits and then amplifies the cable input signal before distributing essentially equal signals to both tuners (the plug on coax adapter on the back feeds the cable signal to an AGC amplifier within the DCT6412 and then splits and distributes that output to both tuner inputs). You could check the OOB AGC level as described here http://www.cable-help.com/ but I think your problem is more likely that tuner 2 has gone bad. JM Belleville Ontario

Aspect ratio, cuts off edges of picture.(NOT THE T.V, THE RECEIVER!)


Dilon, 311's have no aspect ratio adjustment and is not able to switch from the standard 4:3 setting therfore if it is connected to a TV with a large screen the TV has to stretch the picture to fill the screen thus cutting off portions of the picture. I suggest you get a HD receiver as they will be able to change the format and aspect ratio but even these make some sacrifices to fill the screen as well. Most notable of the losses will be the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen where sports scores usually are displayed. Thhis is all a result of the plethora of screen sizes on the market and will not be resolved anytime soon that I am aware. Dish has a 211 which is a one room HD receiver, 612 which is a one room dual tuner receiver with DVR, 222 which is a dual tuner two room receiver with HD capability to the first location and SD to the second, 622 and 722 which are both dual tuner two room DVR receivers with HD to the first location and SD to second. I am sorry I could not bear better news but I wanted to thank you for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.
