For those who are having problems with reception with these Philips antennas I suggest a possible fix for this. It may be an assembly problem with the phasing wires. I would still blame Philips for the very inadequate assembly instructions. The step in the instructions that tell you to connect the phasing wires from the rear boom (boom B) to the front boom (Boom A) should also state that the phasing wires should cross, but not touch. If you simply connected the phasing wire strait forward, sort of how the picture can be interpreted, you will get very poor performance of the antenna. I bent my phasing wires right at the point they leave the rear boom and then again at the point where the wire already has an S bend. The phasing wire coming from the right on the rear boom (Boom B) connects to the left on the front boom (Boom A). The phasing wire from the left on the rear boom (boom B) connects to the right on the front boom (Boom A). When done and looking from the top the phasing wires will make and X and then pass forward straight to the connections. I am sorry for the lengthy description, but without a picture it takes a lot to describe.

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.

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program TV VCR Remote Code


DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program TV or VCR Remote Code

7c06801.jpg

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR 612 to control your primary TV or a VCR? (Instructions to setup a receiver, tuner, stereo, second TV or second VCR are a little different, but can be found here.)

e818a57.jpg

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote, follow these steps to enter the remote control codes to control a primary TV or a VCR:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Find the brand name of the device you would like to control in the control code tables on page 112 of the Dish Solo DVR 612 User Manual.
  3. Press and hold the mode button (TV or VCR) until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The mode button will flash.
  4. Enter one of the three-digit codes from the tables in the manual.
  5. If you want to program Limited Mode, press 1. If not, skip to the next step. (You can add or remove Limited Mode later.)
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times.
  7. Press POWER to turn off the device. If the device does not turn off, skip to step 9.
  8. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If the code works, stop here.
  9. If the code didn't work, repeat steps 3 through 8 with the next device code from the tables in the manual.
Your device control codes for your TV or VCR are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR VIP 612.

Help for programing a tuner, receiver, 2nd VCR, or 2nd TV using the AUX mode button can be found here.

I hope that helps.

Sharp VCR hooked up to cable tv, i/p to vcr then out to tv.


I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

External Tuner Device for VCR/DVD player


Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

Troubleshooting vcr


Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]

Vcr trouble


this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.
