No S-video out on 722?

    I just had Dish installed on Wednesday of this week. So far, I am really enjoying it. My question is the 722 DVR. My old D* DVR (R22) had an s-video out as well as HDMI and component. I used this to hook up to my receiver for subsequent recording on my DVD recorder. The 722 does not have an s-video output now. I had the install tech hook the rca video output - but I do not seem to be getting a video signal. I have audio, but no video. Any ideas?

    I guess I also just have a basic question - is there any setting that I have to do on the DVR to "enable" the output to the connections on the back? I only have 1 TV - and it is currently connected via HDMI in the connector section labeled TV1. The tech installed the composite (yellow rca jack) to the video out in TV1 as well (it also has the red/white audio hooked up as well). I get audio, but no video. Is that because of a SW bug, or is there a setting in the setup that I have to enable? I really wish there was an s-video output on the back, but there is only HDMI, Component, and Composite video - and only composite video for TV2.

    Have you tried resetting the receiver? A lot of issues can be solved with a reset.

    My mind is drawing a blank on how to get there via menu... but I believe you will need to enable "Shared viewing" on the 722 so that the other video outputs will be live while in single mode.

    Is this a ViP722 or a ViP722K?

    It is important that you be accurate when giving us the facts.

    As the analog outputs are all tied to TV1, what would tinkering with shared view change?

    Well, here is where we are now. I had a message on the screen this morning about configuring my receiver (press and hold 0 message). I did that, but it appeared to go into a loop - detecting then download guide, then back to detecting then download guide, then back... So - hit the reset button. Wehn it came back - I tried again to record from the composite output - still had audio - no video. The hookup is from the TV1 composite RCA jack.

    The unit is a VIP722K

    Have you done a "hard" reboot - unplug the unit, wait 20 seconds, plug it back in, let it do its thing which takes time.

    The 722k has a composite video out for TV1 and also a separate composite out for TV2.

    No - since there are world cup matches that my son wants to see (as do I!) then I will wait to do that. Does that reset the settings (favorites, recording timers, etc.) as well?

    NO, just will take little more time as Soft Reset, but will clear all internal registers and memory for sure.

    On my setup, the analog outputs for TV1 were not active unless I enabled Shared View. In dual mode this setting means nothing... but in single mode, those TV1 SD-outputs are not active unless you have shared view enabled.

    On my 722, I used to feed those TV1 analog outputs (S-video and RCA audio) to a second TV with Shared View disabled as all the TV1 outputs were hot. I haven't tried it with the latest software release. Did they change it?

    The OP has a 722k. Do you? Does Stewart?

    Yes - it is a 722K and it does NOT have s-video out, only composite/RCA. I did check and shared view is enabled, but there still does not appear to be anything coming out.

    If you are not getting any video, you have a hardware problem, either the receiver or the cable you are using.
