How can I find lost dvr recordings?

A DVR is basically a hard drive. Connect a laptop to it using a USB cable and see if you see the hard drive as a removable volume in Windows Explorer.

Tv programs freeze up numerous times during day. have to unplug, retart each time. what can be done? I HAVE VIP 222K MODEL.

There is an installation problem, and you need a technician. When the receiver reboots, it sends a boost of power to the LNBF until it gets a signal in return, or gets a response of no signal. If you have damaged lines, a damaged receiver, damaged LNBF, or low signal reception on your antenna, a rebooted receiver will, for a very short time, boost the signal enough to get reception. Then, the receiver will drop the power back to the correct levels, thereby eliminating the short term reception boost. A technician can repair your installation to improve the reception, as long as there is Line Of Sight to the correct satellites.

My receiver's Power light comes on when I aply power to the receiver but after 5 seconds goes off. Why?


When the receiver is rebooted, the power light will come on and then go out. This is normal. After several seconds the power light will illuminate again and it will acquire satellite signal. Again, when power is removed and restored to the receiver, it is normal for the green power light to go out and then illuminate again. I hope this helps.

Cpu fan problem

If you plugged the replacement fan into the power supply instead of the "male plug on the mother board" you will get that error message. You need to find a fan that has the female plug for the mother board. It solved my problem.

Phillips DVR Model works, black screen, no powing up

the power supply is bad.
I had to same problem with mine after a power outage. Luckily I had a spare TIVO series 2 receiver with an identical power supply. Popped it in the busted TIVO and I am back in business.

TiVo has power but something is up.

Replace the power supply.
Sometimes, it will just have enought power for the LED and Fan. But not enough for booting up the drive correctly.

Tivo HD displays ''hdmi connection not permitted''

This happened to me many times with my Sharp 40" LCD. I am actually running 2 tvs of of 1 HD Tivo. One in the bedroom with HDMI and then through the wall into my kitchen tv via Component. ( yes whatever is on in the bedroom plays in the kitchen).. So this AM my power dropped out for a few seconds then came back on. When the Tivo rebooted I got that " hdmi connection not permitted" message. In the past, I would just reboot everything and all would be ok.. But today I couldnt get the tv with the HDMI to display the programming. It would show the tivo menus, but when I tried to play anything or watch live tv, the message would pop up again. The kitchen TV with the components was working the whole time...
So finally I rebooted the Tivo one more time. But this time I left the HDMI cable unplugged from the Sharp in the bedroom untill the Tivo was fully booted and a live channel was playing in the kitchen. I then plugged the HDMI back into the bedroon TV, and it came back on. Im not saying this will work for you, But its worth a try

Power & fan issue

Officially I am bound to state that there is no way provided by Dish Network to make this possible via the ports on the receiver. If you own the receiver you could take it to an electronics repaairer that could possibly repair the power cycling issue. If this is done with a leased receiver it will void any warranty you may have on that piece of equipment.
