Re: How do I record future programs using duel mode...
If you have a DVR with a dual tuner (you can check that your room is the correct room, by hitting menu twice in the TV2 location and it will show the receiver model number) the correct model numbers are 622, 722, 922. The default setting is to record all programs with the TV2 location unless two things are being recorded simultaneously. To set up a new recording from the TV2 location, follow the same steps used at the TV1 location: Find the desired program in the Program Guide, highlight the program that is not airing now, hit SELECT on the remote, verify that your settings are correct, and select DVR on the right side of the screen. You should then see a small window over the program guide that tells you that your receiver is searching for eligible programs to record, then you should see an icon indicating that the program is set to record (or is ineligible with a red x on a grey circle, based on your settings like only new episodes, or a scheduling conflict with other recordings).

Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. Icame across your post recently and wanted to see if I could help. It soundslike your TV2 remote is going to need to be readdressed. It could be possiblethat your TV1 and TV2 remotes are on the same frequency and remote address oryour TV2 remote may be on the same frequency as another remote in a nearby homeor apartment. I would like to list here for you the instructions on changingyour remote address so that it no longer experiences interference. This shouldbe an easy fix for the issue you are experiencing. I hope this works for youbut if it does not or you have any further questions or concerns about thisissue or any others feel free to email me at [email protected] and Iwill be happy to help. :) Instructions for readdressing TV2 remote
Take TV2 remote to TV1 location (in front of the receiver)
Go to System Info screen. You can do this by either pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver box or by pressing the power button once then the channel up button once on the front of the receiver. (You may need to open the little door on the front right side of the receiver box)
Once you are in the system info screen you will see primary remote address(TV1) and secondary remote address(TV2). For your particular situation you will locate TV2
Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.Change the number to something different then what is already listed in the white square.
Press the pound (#) button
Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 5 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
In order to do this with the 625 you must either place the receiver in single mode or change the Record Plus setting on the receiver.
To change to single mode you will need to pop open the small door on the right front of the receiver by gently pushing three to four inches from the right side of the receiver. Inside there will be multiple buttons press the one labeled mode. The blue light for TV2 will extinguish when it is in single mode and the amber mode light will switch from the duplex tile side to the single tile side.
The drawback to this is that the TV2 location now must watch the same program or something that was previously recorded on the DVR or utilize a peripheral such as an X-box or DVD player.
The other way results in the same outcome but to achieve this it will automatically default all recordings to be recorded at the TV2 location. Press menu on the TV1 remote then 8 - 5. You should now be at the Record Plus setting option. Use the arrow keys on the remote to manuever to the record preference setting and toggle up or down with the up down arrow keys to switch the preference to TV2. Now manuever to the activation option and toggle it to ENABLE in the same manner. Once comple select done and press the View Live TV button.
The reason you cannot watch and record at the same location and still have access to different programming at the second location is due to the receiver only having two tuners which means it only is capable of viewing two seprate programs at any given time. Once they both are in use by either TV1 or TV2 or both are watching independent programming the receiver is no longer able to access further tuners to display additional programs.
I could go into the technical aspects but it would not resolve the issue either. However if you desire this capability at both locations you can check into changing the receiver from a 625 to two 512's which will allow you the ability to so.
I hope this helps you out. Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a Dish Network customer.
ANT. passthrough for an ant. connected to your 625 receiver will only work on tv 1. The only way to do this is to RF modulate your tv 2 coax to an RCA and hook the RcA cable to your tv2. then use another ant. to connect coax allowing you to pick up dish programing on an input and then going to the channels to enjoy local over the air programming.
You can accomplish this by either going to the specific TV and selecting the record option at the time the program is about to come on or you can press menu-8-5 and change the record preferences. You can either set the DVR to record programs to the TV2 location by default or TV1 by enabling the record plus feature. In dual mode without record plus enabled all programs you select to record default to the tuner you are viewing e,g, if watching tv1 and selecting to record a program in the future it will record to the tv1 location.In single mode all recordings default to tv2 so you can continue to watch live tv from tv1. I hope this answers your question and thanks for using Fix Ya. Let me know if I can further assist you.
Your recording will record onto your one DVR box, for playback on either tv. On many satelite boxes you have to search for the program you want by entering the name. Then select the program and select to record the future broadcast.
If the blue light on the receiver is on then your tv is most likely on the wrong channel after checking cabeling i would do a reset on receiver first wait for it to come back on, then run a channel scan on your tv2 you can do this with orignal tv remote under the menu options. its also refered to as a auto search or auto program.
