HAVE THESE TWO RECEIVERS 1 DOWNSTAIRS AND 1 UPSTAIRS WHEN YOU GO TO CHANGE CHANNELS ,IT CHANGES BOTH SETS. I TOOK ANTENNA OFF 1 SET ,BUT DOES;T WORK ON THAT SET WITHOUT ANTENNA HOW CAN I STOP IT FROM WORKING BOTH SETS AT THE SAME TIME THANK YOU D.S.
You need to program one remote with a different code, power off or unplug one of the receivers. Go to the other receiver and hit the system info button at the receiver. Now read the remote code at the bottom of screen would be a number between 1 to 15. Program the remote for a different code than what it shows. Push and hold down the sat button on the remote and leave go light will blink, enter code say 14 and the pound key. You will see the light blink 3 times on the remote. Now that code is entered in the remote now with that system info screen up on the tv watch at bottom where code is and hit the record key on remote and you will see it change to 14. All done . now just plug back in your other receiver.

Hi, poog_23350, I caught your post! How a Duo DVR receiver works is that the TV you have it set to record on will not allow you to change the channel while the recording is in progress. The other TV, that isn't recording anything, can be used freely to flip through channels.
In this case, it's TV2, the one upstairs in your daughter's room, that's currently set to record on while the downstairs TV is free to use. This can be adjusted by pulling up the Main Menu with the Menu button on the remote, selecting option 8, then option 5, and changing the TV1/TV2 setting there on the Record Plus screen.
If you'd like a receiver capable of allowing channel changing while recording a program, our VIP 612 receiver is a Solo receiver that acts like a Duo. What this means is that it has one TV output and two tuners. Along with being able to change channels while a recording is in progress with this type of receiver, you can also record two programs on two different channels simultaneously.
Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here!!! If you want to do this! You would need a tech to come out and install the DVRs in the new rooms. If you try to move the reveivers, you will only get an Acquiring Satellite Signal message. If this has not been resolved, you can find us on Twitter, or blog back!
check that you have the sender plugged into the sky box and the receiver into the required tv and not the other way round. The wrong way round still allows the controller to change channels but you will see nothing also ensure that both sender and reciever are on same channel 1 to 4
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be.
Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas
Since the antenna is on the roof the signal has further to travel to get to the downstairs antenna and as a result the signal is weaker. Install a device on the antenna line before the first TV called a signal booster. This unit plugs into the wall and gets connected to the antenna wire too. It will improve the signal for both televisions.
Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.
yeah that is a software download, if it does not progress it may have an issue, those receivers are being discontinued, call dishnetwork and they will provide you with a replacement leased receiver and a new dish install to receive all current hd programming
