I have been having DISH DVR problems lately. The most recent is my recorded programs list is not showing anything in it. But I only have 13 hours of record time left, so I know they are on there somewhere.

You always want to ensure you have the updates being completed at a time that is most convenient for you, you can change the update time which is generally set to 3am, by going into your MENU selecting option 8 (Preferences) and then selecting option 4 (Updates) you will then be able to change the time the receiver completes updates if you desire and then please just make sure you are shutting your receiver off nightly to allow the updates to be successfully completed (this will help to prevent DVR issues). In addition, once you delete some of your recordings, powering it off nightly allows the hard drive to be refreshed and clears the deleted recording entirely. I hope this helps!

My dish network dvr stops recording some programs, i think its just shows that are to be recorded on tv 1. It will record only like 10 minutes or less and stops recording


jeff_rhondac,

Check the timers you have setup for the programs that are suppose to record. Make sure the timers are setup correctly. Do you have any timers setup to begin early and end late? A new software update rolled about 2 weeks ago. Did you start experiencing the problem after that? Also, how much available time is available on the HD? Please let me know so I can further assist you.

Thanks,

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres and I am with DISH Network Customer Service. I have never heard of receiver only recording on one tuner but not on the other but I would like to see if we can find a solution for you. The first step to try in order to resolve your issue is make sure that you do not have any timers conflicting with each other. If you do have two different timers that are set to record at the same time it can cause the DVR to record one show and not the other. Another trouble shooting step to try is a hard reset by unplugging your receiver for ten seconds then plugging the cord back in. After you have allowed your DISH receiver to reset try your DVR recording functions again. If both of these options are not correcting the problem please feel free to email me at [email protected] so that I can ask you a few more questions about your issue and get this resolved for you as soon as possible. Thanks and have a great day! :)

Dish DVR recording shows that haven't been programmed to record


This may be caused by as many as three variables.

The first would be that if your neighbor has Dish Network and they have their TV2 near yours it could be picking up their recording preferences. This would create a recording specific to let's say MONSTER TRUCKS.

The next is if you notice MONSTER TRUCKS when trying to view an intended recording at the beginniong or end of the desired recording. This can occur if the start time an end time for your recordings have been set to begin before your intended recording and end after the intended program completed. You can edit this by pressing the DVR button, my recordings, schedule, timers, pick a recording from the list and press select, now press options and you will see the timer options which will allow you to manipulate the start early time and end late time among other things.

Lastly is that your program guide is out of date or the guide is totally errant. Unplug the receiver from the wall for a minute and repower it. This will force the system to update itself if it is not intefered with during this process. If after this procedure the same issue is occurring and the guide says the program you want recorded but retrurns an unwanted one then the guide is corrupted on the Dish Network side and will be repaired as soon as possible.

I hope this assists you. Thanks fornusing Fix Ya.

Every program scheduled to record starts and ends five minutes early? So the end of the preceding program is recorded and the end of the selected program is cut off.


BigBillO,

One of the options for the DVR recordings is starting and ending before the program starts and ends. You can change this setting to your preference. To change , press the DVR button 2 times on your DISH remote. This will bring up the "My Recordings" screen on your TV. Go to "Schedule" button on the right side of the screen. Press select. You should be on the "Daily Schedule" screen. Go to "Timers" button on the right of the screen. Press select. You are now on the "Timers List" screen. Select one of the programs scheduled to be recorded and press "Select". You are now on the "Timer Schedule" screen. Go to "Options" button and press select. You are now on the "Timer Options" screen. This is the screen you can set your preference for the "start early" and "stop late" settings. Be sure to select the "Set as System Default" if you want to apply this setting to all your recordings. I hope this helps.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show


Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07
you can go into the DVR and replace the hard drive but I would suggest getting Dish Home Plan, Replace the receiver and then cancel the Home Plan. Talk to Dish Network and they will work with you.

Won't record in HD. DVR shows to be recording, but when you click on the programmed HD channel (the one that's supposedly recording) it's blank and says "searching for satellite". Just started recently.


Have you tried rebooting the DVR and removing the card that came with the DVR if its one that was provided to by one of the satellite company's such as Directv or Dish.

ArmyMason,
Unfortunately as a Dish Network Employee I must inform you that acording to Dish that is not possible however a good computer tech may be able to help you with a work around but keep in mind that if any damage occurs to the receiver that Dish will charge you for the receiver. When you do upgrade check into the receiver models that have an expansion port for an external hard drive. A 211 which is a solo hidefinition receiver without DVR can have a port activated for as one time charge of 39.99 and you can use the hard drive you supply as the DVR. Yoiu also will not be accessed the 5.98 DVR fee every month and if the receiver needs replacing you still have your recordings. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
