Recording weird stuff:

sounds like you have accidently created timers.

hit the dvr button 3 times then arrow up to 'Timers'

arrow up to 'Edit List'

here you can select the timers you do not want then select delete

Info Not Available:

run a check switch test

hit menu 6 - 1 -1

highlight 'check switch' and press select

highlight ' test' and press select

wait for the test to finish

if an error pops up there is probably a signal issue, otherwise exit out

you will get attn 015 message, allow this to finish and you will get 330

this is the guide downloading... if this does not happen go to
menu - 6 - 6 and select yes

if it still does not download call dish network

Just to clarify, if the receiver is not allowed to do its nightly update, you will get this message "info not available" after a few days. To update the guide information, simply unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. After the acquisition is complete, allow the download to take place. I hope this helps.

I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
Main Features:
DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
HDMI Digital Output
Digital Audio Output
CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
EPG searching and auto download
Recorded program edit
Parental Control
Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
Built-in WiFi
Network Playback
USB 2.0 Interface

It says no info on the programs I want to record and won't record them. The guide also shows no info in those areas.


Janette578,

Make sure the receiver is powered off each night so it can receive updates through the satellite to the guide.

You can force a guide download by unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, you can run a check switch test from Menu > System Setup > Installation > Point Dish > Check Switch > Test. Let it finish, then exit out of the menu and let it acquire signal and download the guide.

If you have any other questions, or need further assistance, let me know!

My DVR receiver is recording programs that i originally did not put on the schedule. My receiver is also showing the programs in the guide and my daily schedule as "No Info Available". I have...


Hello! For these issues, here are a few simple steps:

First, for the DVR recording shows, you just need to delete those timers. They may have accidentally been set up.
1. Menu, 7-Daily Schedule
2. Timers
3. Edit list
4. Select any timers that you did not create, or want deleted. This will stop them from recording!

For the program guide:
You just need to download the program guide. Here's a couple easy ways:
First way:
1. Pull up the Guide
2. Press 999 then the right arrow button (Browse) until the guide prompts a download,

Second way:
1. Pull up a menu. Press 6 (Sys setup) -1(Installation) - 1( Point dish)
2. Highlight and select Check Switch on the upper right
3. Select test at the bottom left. (If a message comes up between steps 2 and 3, select yes. )
4. Press VIew live tv, and allow the Acquiring signal message and the guide download to go through.

I hope these steps help!!!

I have an LG HR598D Blu ray hdd recorder but am having trouble working out how to program it to record tv shows.


Hit the menu button then go to timer recordings (I think. one menu item is for recording and one is for playing). hit new and enter the stations and times etc. To play back just go to

Another way is to do it through the tv guide but dont bother if the show runs early or late you will miss it.

Another is the one touch recording but it maxes out at 2 hours so not for movies.

One final caution - watch the time. i set it ot manual not auto as it stuffs up daylight saving in Aus.

Have fun!

Thanks Benimur. The first posted solution worked like a charm. I banged the bottom of the camera hard on a book 3 times (what did I have to loose?) and not only did it begin recording properly, but the things I recorded on the faulty setting played fine as well. Weird stuff, really............

Recording from guide plus


Recording from the guide requires that the unit be off to receive guide info regularly and copy it to the HD. If your reception is poor or your DVD on time is too great, the guide will not have any info, and the recording be nameless, except for channel and time info. You can force the EPG mode by removing the power plug from the back of the unit, but only do this after you have turned the unit off! While copying the guide to the HD, the display shows EPG while th unit is off, and you will hear the HD cycling.
