Question about DISH Network ViP722 DTV Receiver / 350-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

We have Dish Network VIP722 on only one HD tv at this time. When recordng HD PPV, we are unable to change channels without getting message that recording will stop. Menu>Preferences>Record Plus> showed TV2 selected, but that could be because we've been trying to figure out how to record and watch another channel and may have changed it from TV1- as all our recordings are on TV1. How should it be set up to record a HD PPV and be able to go to a live channel (like the local news)?

This is a problem that many have. If you are recording on TV1, and the receiver is in dual mode, then you are only able to watch what you record. But you can set your recording to TV1, and then put the receiver into single mode, and switch from the recording to live TV.

Partial solution: I have had rabbit ears sitting on my roof, somewhat tied in with my dish, for close to two years. It's just a matter of running a coax out.

Cant get 1080 HD picture


Doug Stanton,

I hope this has been resolved by now, but if not then I would be more than happy to assist.

There is a setting where you can change the HDTV Format to display in 1080i. 1080p is available only on select PPV/VoD's. To check or change that, access the Main Menu. From there select System Setup, then HDTV Setup. Go to TV Type and change it to the resolution you want, and make sure Aspect Ratio is 16x9.

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

Go into the Main Menu. From there go to System Setup (6) -> HDTV Setup (8). Make TV Type 1080i and Aspect Ratio 16x9 and select Done. Your picture should now be showing a HD picture.

We would be happy to help you with that. The first thing we would recommend checking is if the "Record Plus" feature is "Enabled", this can be found to the left of the "Record Preferences" on the "Record Plus" screen. The other thing we would recommend is to ensure that the tuner that you are viewing is for the TV1. You can swap between the tuners by pressing "Input" button while in SAT mode.

This should get things set up the way you want it. Thanks for choosing DISH Network!

My VIP722 DVr keeps showing that I have a complete loss of signal. This goes for awhile and can receive no HD channels. By going to DVR I can then go to guide and get SD channels only. But then after...


Hello this is Nick Franta with DISH Network.

What error message are you receiving on your screen? There should be a 3 digit number in the top right of the message. Has there been any bad weather in the area which may have affected the signal?

If you haven't been advised to already, I would suggest doing a hard reset of the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds. When you plug it back in the receiver will reboot itself for you. If you are still getting errors hit the menu button then 6-system setup, 1-installation, 1-point dish, and then hit check switch and then test. All your satellites should show green. If not we would need to send a tech out to address the issue.

Hope this helps!

Does the sharp Aquos LC-52 support HDCP? I have Dish Network and for some reason can't watch any HD PPV channels, Dish Network says it's a TV issue. Can you help?


DISH Network blocks multiple video outputs on all PPV and most premium content to prevent recording, and they will tell you it is a TV issue. Ensure that your receiver only has one video cable coming out, to only one device (ie HDMI to the TV) and try again.

Dvr has been replaced once. still problems with recording program


thebeach1580,

With the Service Plan, which is $6 per month, it will reduce the technician visit from $95 to $15. From what you have described, your dish may need to be realigned.

Program sony remote to operate dish vip722


The Sony RM-YD029 Remote control will work with the Dish Network VIP722 DVR HD Satellite Receiver, but the Dish Network VIP722's Primary remote address must be set to 1.

The procedure below will allow Sony RM-YD029 remote control to operate Dish VIP722.

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the primary remote address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates you the channel your remote control one is configured. The Sony RM-YD029 will work when this primary remote address number (in the white box) is set to 1.

If the Primary Remote Address of your VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your Sony remote control per the instructions in the manual or Sony's web site. My 722 works with Sony IR code - 01775.

Need Dish DVR ViP722 remote code.


If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.
