I have provided the codes and instructions on how to program your DISH remote to your Bose receiver. I hope this helps.

Remote codes:761 and 780

Instructions on programming:

Address To Other Equipment Using Code
  • Remotes: Multiple Mode Buttons (TV,VCR, AUX)
    1. Press and hold the desired Mode button until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
    2. Use the number buttons to enter the device code corresponding to the equipment. AUX Mode: Before entering the device code:
      • Press 0 for a TV
      • Press 1 for a VCR/DVD
      • Press 2 for any other device.
      Note: The light will blink off after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.
    3. Press the POUND (#) button.

      If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

Our DVR jumps to the suggestions screen and we

mwe71704 -

I saw a similar problem with a vcr and it's menu years ago. It turned out to be the remote. If you can operate the unit without using the remote, try that to see if the problem happens again. If not, the remote is the issue. You don't say if there were any factors that could be traced directly to the remote (like the jump happened when you pointed the remote at the unit or pressed a button). You might also have a button that is stuck.

You'll have to do some experimenting to see if the remote is the cause, but it might be worth it. If the unit can't be operated without the remote, reboot it with the remote pointing away from it. Then turn the remote towards the unit. then try some of the functions. If it jumps to the suggestion screen, note which button you had just pressed and repeat the entire process. If a particular button always causes the issue, that's the culprit. You may want to just use the unit as you have been, rebooting as necessary, but pay attention to what happens right before the jump to the suggestion screen.

You can tape 2 and watch one that is recorded, it has a dual tuner to record 2 shows. you can record one and watch another channel at the same time.

We have Directv and the dish is about 200 ft away

unfortunately there is no way to hook it up independently w/o connecting to the dish. the only other option you would have is to run an analog splitter but that would only allow you to watch the same program you are watching where the receiver is located.

Can't play back recordings


We just discovered the same problem and we called Dish Network. After pushing to go deeper and try harder to solve the problem the customer service agent had us go to the system info screen. On that screen she asked the color of box "f", which was green, and that told her that the unit was defective. They are replacing the unit. I hope this helps. As for getting your recordings back, I think they are toast.

Our Dvr will only record on the channel we are

for the dual tuner, if you are unsure what this is... please look at the back of the satellite box and see if you have 2 sat in cables. if you do, then you need to reprogram your satellite. if you do not have 2 sat in cables then you would need to contact dtv to get this installed.

Problem with playback on DVR - R15-500 receiver.

Check your signal strength on your second tuner. Dont forget to check all satellites and, if you use the signal meter instead of system test, a few odd and a few even transponders.

It sounds like it may be low.

I recently hooked up my dtv box, tuned the antenna

If there is a volume control on the remote that came with the converter box, use it to make sure the box volume is set to its maximum. Many models allow you to control the volume out from the box to the TV, and the levels are set about halfway. When you turn up the volume on the TV cause it's too low, you can get the kind of audio problem you describe. Make sure you turn the volume down on the TV first before starting with the box.

Can't watch anyother shows while recording another

Check the back of the DVR to make sure BOTH cables from the dish are properly connected to the receiver. Make sure they are properly tightened. It sounds like one of them has come loose, because if the receiver only has one working cable coming in from the dish it can only do one thing at once- you can only record one show at a time with one cable. You can also go into the receiver's setup menu and run a system test, which will help you diagnose the issue.
