    I want to set locks on my 622 but can not locate in the manual what the default password for the lock is. Anyone know?

    Don't try to change the password. Just Lock it and it will request to create a password the first time. I did the same as you. I tried to set the password and It wanted to know the existing password which isn't printed anywhere.

    So just set it to Lock and it will request you to enter a password the first time. This seems like a bug to me but no big deal.

    I bought a Dishnetwork Dvr 522 from eBay and when I tried to erase the recording I was prompted with a password. I called the seller for the password but he told me that he was not the original owner and does not know the right password. Now I got stucked with useless Dvr. Does someone out here knows how to unclock it? Really needs help. TIA!

    I think there is a way for Dish to send an unlock signal. You'll have to call tech support.

    I set a password but find that I don't really need it. But every time I try to delete a protected recording, I have to enter my password. I haven't forgotten the password, but I really don't want to enter it every time. Is there a simple way to turn it off or do I need to call a CSR?

    Thanks, Bill

    Going to Locks and unlock sytem.

    But I wouldn't recommend it. Without locks it is easy for someone to mistakenly purchase something or make some other undesired change.

    You could choice not to protect a recording. It won't be erased until you run out of disk space.

    I'm the only user of this 622, and I won't accidentally make a purchase or any changes that cause problems. And - I have run out of disk space, which is what happens when you program 26 HD movies for a 7 day period! :lol: I'd prefer that the system simply stop recording when I'm out of space rather than deleting movies that are already recorded.

    BTW - I did what you suggested, we'll see if it worked next time I delete a recording.

    If you protect your shows they won't be recorded over. Also if you record series tv you can set how many shows you want saved before it records the oldest copy of that particular show. So if you have a timer for a soap for Mon - Fri and you set it to save 2 copies it will save only 2 and record over the oldest copy each day. I use this feature for my sons kiddie shows and it saves the hard drive from filling up. I have it set up on my other series tv shows to and only save one. The other sure way to have it stop recording is to unplug it. Sorry I had to say it.:p

    While you might not, your neighbors could if thier UHF remote happens to be on the same address as yours. It is a good idea to always change the default address but it is also very wise to lock your receiver "just in case".
