Please be patient! ViP722 DVR question
Posted 27 November 2011 - 08:21 PM
So, here is the question(s):
We have the ViP722, currently setup for dual mode. TV2 is the default. We have a show set to record on TV2 at 8pm (8-9pm). Wanted to record another show to TV2 at 9pm, and it would not allow it (it would not allow an option for TV1 either). Anyone seen this issue?
I am getting setup for the Blockbuster plan and was curious if it is possible to get the movies streamed in via the net? I have chosen several movies, but they all have the option of DVD only.
Thanks for your help!

I can't help you with the Blockbuster question, but I'm sure someone else will.

If you want to record sequential shows, and they overlap because of the addition of minutes to the beginning and/or end of either or both, the receiver should switch the second recording to the alternate tuner, i.e. TV1.
Also, make sure your new recording does not conflict with another timer that you have set.
Dish 1000.2 @ 110, 119, 129; dish 500 @ 61.5

In dual mode.., from the TV2 remote I believe you will only be able to set one satellite timer recording. From the TV1 remote you can set multiple timers and set it to try the second tuner before the main one.
In solo mode, you can record two channels at once much easier... Also you get PiP as well.

Here is what we have:
ViP722, running (2) HDTV's, 1 in living room, 1 in Master bedroom
211, running (1) non-HDTV in a spare bedroom.
The idea behind the switch was to be able to watch recorded shows in both the living room and master bedroom. The 211 in the spare is used very rarely.
Now I am curious if there is a way to combine the 722 and 211 with the 2 HDTV's to get more flexability. Also curious if I would get any reception at all on the spare tv without a receiver....
