Hello! The guide might be set to only HD. You will find this out by going into the guide. At the top Left of your guide, you will see that it says left to the right of the DISH Network logo. If it says ALL HD, then just press the GUIDE button again, until the list says ALL CHAN or ALL SUB. This way, you can view not only HD channels, but SD channels as well! Hope this helps!!!!

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume of your receiver, tuner, or stereo instead of your TV's volume?

e818a57.jpg


The first step in using the Universal Remote Control that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume level of your receiver, tuner, or stereo is to program the remote to control your audio device using the AUX mode button.

Once your remote controls your audio device in AUX mode, you probably want to continue to control the volume of your stereo even if the remote is in SAT, TV or VCR mode.

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the AUX button until all the mode buttons are lit, and then let it go.
  2. Press the POUND (#) button.
  3. Press the PLUS side of the VOLUME button.
  4. Press 0.
  5. Press the POUND (#) button. The AUX button flashes three times to tell you the programming is complete.
  6. Confirm the VOLUME buttons are operating the tuner/amplifier's volume control by pressing SAT or TV, and then adjusting the volume. Your tuner/amplifier's volume should change rather than your TV's volume.

Your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote is now setup to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in

I hope that helps.

My VP 612 will not give a signal to the 2nd TV. We had a have a VIP 211 and it works fine.


Hi there Rick, my name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH. It is my pleasure to help you. A VIP 612 is a single receiver, meaning it can only control one tv independently, if you do have a second Tv connected it is mirrored correct? (meaning it watches/shares the same programming as the main TV connected directly to the receiver) If so, the TV connected with RG6 cable must be on channel 3 in order to receive a picture. Feel free to reach me at: kimberly.escobar@dish.com if you have any additional questions or concerns.

I have an old echostar receiver, but i was going to buy the HD dish Vip 612 DVR. I wanted to knwo if the new DVR will take my saterlight card? and can i manually upgrade my LnB to a HD version?


Hey there, ihacharya! I saw your post and would like to offer you assistance. You are going to need to upgrade your dish satellite to a newer model as the LNBF on the one you have isn't capable of receiving HD signal. You can email me your account number so that I can look into that for you. My email address is michael.lemar@dishnetwork.com.

Hope that helps!

Hi edhayes27 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network Executive Office. This posting in FixYa shows you have the 311 receiver; this receiver will only show SD channels. We do have the VIP 211 which will show in HD and SD channels. If possible can you verify the model number of your receiver, which indicates you

When setting the timer frequency to ''Weekly'' on a ViP 612 Receiver, how many weeks does it record at that hour?


Indefinitely until it is discontinued manually. Or the program no longer comes on at that time. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Sounds stop working after about 1 to 2 hours of viewing.


We would be happy to help you with this. The volume levelingfeature that we have sounds perfect for this situation; it keeps the volumelevels consistent between programming and commercials and also prevents drasticvolume level changes when switching between HD and SD programming. The volumeleveling feature is supported by the following receivers: ViP 222k, ViP 612,ViP 722k, and ViP 922; the model number of your receiver is displayed onthe front in the lower left corner. Your receiver needs to be connected by onof the following: composite cable (green, blue, red cables), coax cable (singlecable with metallic tip), HDMI or optical devices that do not support Dolbyaudio.

Start by pressing the menu button on your DISH Network remote control, thenpress the number 6 for system setup then 7 for audio output. Once therehighlight the "Enable" option below Volume Leveling and press select.Once enable exit the menu by selecting done on the right side of the screen.

We hope this helps to get things set up the way you like it. Thanks forchoosing DISH Network!

Need to Frequently Reset Dish Network HD VIP 612 Solo DVR.


When you bring up your guide look at the top of the screen and you will see the LIST: if this says ALL HD then press the guide button until you see ALL SUB or a menu and select ALL SUB. If your guide keeps changing by itself its possible to have remote interfence since you have a UHF remote, especially if you also see channel changes as well. Try setting the guide and go from there. If you still continue to have issues call 1-800-333-3474 for tech support for extensive troubleshooting or at dishnetwork .com/tech.
