20 Most Recent DISH Network DISH-2800 DTV Receiver Questions & Answers

The dvr , of which model you haven't said it, doesn't care where it is and what program is set to record; all it cares is to be connected to a source of signal and, if necessary, to be tuned to the channel in question.
So, if your dvr doesn't have 2 tuners or even a single correct/sattelite one , it will have to be connected directly to the receiver that receives the program you want to record - the one on the bedroom.

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!!!

Hey! Becki Barned with Dish Network customer service here! You have a couple options: You can just delete all recordings and start over that way, or you can format the Hard Drive to your computer, then reformat it to your receiver. But here is a link on our site for the hard drive. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/use-ehd Hope this helps!!!!

Hey there! This is Becki Barned, with Dish Network customer service! The problem that you may be having is with interference with the remote. Depending on how much light is shining directly on the receiver, such from a lamp in the evening, or the sunset, this can interfere with the remote responding to the receiver. If you have glass in front of your receiver, that can cause it too. Try to remove all objects or lights from the front of the receiver, and it should work fine!

Try pulling the power plug and leaving it unplugedd for an hour. This will allow all internal components to cool down and de-energize somewhat. Plug it back in and try again. If no luck take the receiver to another portion of the home and plug it in there. Try powering it down and see if you are sucessful. If so you have an electrical issue if not a bad receiver.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

You can Google the exact model number of your TV. One of the pages that comes up will be from the manufacturer and will contain the manual under SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

This may be what you are seeking.


I am assuming you have the DVD installed with the DISH. If not, the procedure can be googled.

Did you connect to the output of a box? If so then it will usually come through your him I and doesn't require a scan. If cable set your menu setting to cable and not antenna.
