Question about Directv (R10) DTV Receiver / 70-Hours Video Recorder

Direct TV DVR Recording Problem

I've got Direct TV, and I've got the DVR R10. I've got the dual tuner so I can record 2 shows at once, or record one channel and view another.

However, There are 10-15 channels that go immediately when I begin recording on another channel.

For example, when I watch a program on Fox Sports, and I have the recorder set on ABC, as soon as the recorder goes on ABC, Fox Sports goes black and says "Searching for Signal, etc."

Then I go in and test signal strenght, and suddenly I'm able to see Fox Sports again, however, I had to stop the recording on ABC in order to test the signal strength, so i start the process over again, and the same thing happens.

However, if I'm watching NBC at this time, I can continue watching NBC even when ABC records.
Just wondering why some channels can't be viewed when I've got the DVR recording on another.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Call tech support & ask them to hit your box to reset it, in the meanwhile unplug it for 15 seconds

Why does my R15-100 DVR Plus not record 2 programs at same time. What can I do to fix it?


When we had the R15 (we have since upgraded) we could record two channels at once with no trouble. You have to have two satellite connections in the back (since it uses a separate tuner for each channel) and you cannot watch a third channel while recording two others - if you're going to watch, you have to watch one of the two shows you're recording.

If it's your cable box DVR, you need to call your cable provider to reset your cable box.

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other


Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.

Our Dvr will only record on the channel we are watching. I cannot watch one show and record another? It says I have to be watching the channel I want to record?


for the dual tuner, if you are unsure what this is... please look at the back of the satellite box and see if you have 2 sat in cables. if you do, then you need to reprogram your satellite. if you do not have 2 sat in cables then you would need to contact dtv to get this installed.

Trouble recording on the DVR.


Do you have a Dual tuner DVR? If so, verify that you have 2 cables from the dish plugged into the back, one into each tuner.

If thats not the problem, go into your settings and verify that you do not have one tuner disabled. If both tuners are enabled, check the signal strength. If its good on both tuners and resetting the receiver doesn't fix it, its probably time to call DTV to discuss a new receiver.

Shows canceled?


Make sure u have signal on both tuners on the DVR ( check it in your set-up screen). both tuners should have the same siganl strength. Directv's DVRs, if installed correctly, give u the option of recording one channel and watch another, or recording 2 seperate channels( 2 tuners). If you are recording 2 seperate shows and u change the channel one of your recordings will cancel .

Tivo and direct tv


No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.

If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).

Good luck.
