What do you mean you 'typed in a channel'? You can't do that on the Dish app. And I'm not trying to watch a DVR program. I'm simply trying to watch ANYTHING! I can't get it to do anything. And the strange thing is I can't get Dishonline to do anything, either. What gives? Neither of them connect for me!
Relax - there's no need to wig out just yet.
Open the dish app, wait for it to log in. Click menu, guide. You should get a full program guide. Then wait 30 sec or so. Click on a channel, any channel, then click watch. It will probably tell you your dvr is not connected. Click back. Wait 10 or 15 seconds and click refresh. Then click menu, my DVR. If it says you're not connected, click back and wait 15 more seconds and repeat. At some point it your DVR programs will show up. Then click menu, guide and select live tv on some channel. Wait 15 seconds or so and it should work. That will get you off the xm radio channel.
Once you successfully get something besides the radio, you can watch live TV (via the guide) or a program (via my dvr). Also, once the program starts, it may take 5 or 10 seconds to switch to the proper channel so be sure to wait.
The real issue is that it takes a long time to get the initial connection and for commands to actually take affect. So you will get a lot of "you're dvr isn't connected messages" - the key is to have patience - at some point it will connect and then everything is fine. The Dish online web site is similar - it takes a long time to get the connection set up.
