Question about Directv HR10-250 DTV Receiver

1 Answer

Reciever Not Recording

My Direct TV DVR is periodically recording only parts of shows. Sometimes it stops after 10 minutes, sometimes much longer like 45 minutes. It looks like it has one full hour of a show recorded, but at some point, it stops and asks if I want to delete. Any ideas?

    Does anyone know why this thing only records just from the middle to the end or just the end credits. I'm really frustrated!

Turn off the receiver, unplug the receiver, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, and go through the setup again. This hard restart clears the memory and restarts the DVR software(clears any software glitches) This should fix this problem assuming that your satellite signal is good. Check that during the resetup. Most transponders will show between 70 to 100 signal strength. (Minimum is 70 for error free reception) Several transponders will show 0 as they are dead on the satellite, and not a receiver problem) If your satellite signal is in the 70's or less, you either live in Maine or you may need to realign the dish or something is blocking the signal like a tree or bush growing that is partially blocking the signal causing the signal to drop out(partial recordings)

Dish dvr 622 will not record two shows at once

Deborah Haviland,

I can understand the concern with that receiver not doing the 2 recordings. There isn't a specific setting that stops it, so the receiver itself may be having trouble. Unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug it back in.

If the problem persists we would have to replace the receiver. If you can send me an email at [email protected] with the account or phone #, I can definitely check into that with you.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...

You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other

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.
