Sanyo DS27880 27" TV, Dish signal lost after tv turned off, doesn't return
I have a Dish Network dual tuner DVR. Tuner 1 is my bedroom, tuner 2 the living room. A few weeks ago, the living room tv (Sanyo DS27880 27") began showing static (audio and video) upon turning the tv on. But what began as a few seconds delay, began to grow into several seconds to a minute. Now yesterday, the tv stopped showing the dish signal entirely.
I tested a different tv on that coaxial cable connection and it receives the dish signal great. The Sanyo tv also recognizes the vcr and dvd players okay through that same coaxial cable. Dish requires the tv channel be on 60, and it is, but still no signal.
I don?t have any idea what is causing this, it appears to be a problem with the tv. However, about the same time this problem started, I did install a splitter to send the tuner 2 signal to a third tv. Currently the first and third tv?s are working fine with the dish signal, but the living room Sanyo (tv 2) does not.
So I did go back and remove the splitter just to try it direct (the old way) and still nothing on the Sanyo.

If you have a dual receiver, you can record to TV 2 and watch any program on TV 1. If you have 2 recordings taking place at the same time, you can only watch what is being recorded.
With a dual receiver, you can place the receiver in single mode and watch a different program even if 2 recording are taking place. In single mode both TV 1 and TV 2 will be watching the same program.
A solo DVR you can record to tuner 2 and watch what you want on TV 1. With the VIP 622 receiver, you have the Record Plus option, you can have all recording go to TV 2. If 2 recordings take place, then TV 1 and TV 2 are used.
Is TV 2 off the 322 receiver being back fed from the receiver or do you have a direct connection to the 3rd room? If it is a direct connection, you would screw the coax from the 3rd bedroom directly to the TV 2 Home Distribution channel 21-69 out port.
If you are back feeding, you need 2 diplexers that connect 1) by the receiver and 2) between the receiver and the 3rd TV. The back feeding will use the same cable coming from the dish to the receiver.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service, I will be happy to assist with this. This receiver needs to have a Separator (splitter) that has one coax cable coming from the Satellite into the single side and then two cables out, which connect to the receiver box. The Separator is marked with a SAT1 & SAT2. They will connect up to SAT1 & SAT2 on the receiver box itself. If you are using a different typr splitter, it is probably not rated for the splitting of the Satellite feed. I hope this helps you, if not feel free to contact me.
To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.
Are you still having problems with your TV 2 off the 625 receiver? You have a cable off the back of the receiver, TV 2 Home Distribution. That's feeding to your TV 2 location. You might check to make sure it is secure. You can also see if that cable screws into a diplexer if it is being back feed through the satellite cables. These are all potential problem spots, especially since you said it was working before. I hope this helps.
Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.
Hi benray there is something else youcan do on that to make sure your getting the strongest signal possible. Youwill need to press the MENU-6-1-1 buttons on the remote. Select Check Switchand Test, after the test is complete select done and then check the signal andif there is still a weak signal we will need to re-point the Dish.
Do you have a Dual tuner DVR? If so, verify that you have 2 cables from the dish plugged into the back, one into each tuner.
If thats not the problem, go into your settings and verify that you do not have one tuner disabled. If both tuners are enabled, check the signal strength. If its good on both tuners and resetting the receiver doesn't fix it, its probably time to call DTV to discuss a new receiver.
