Hopefully as time goes on, new users will find this helpful and will reduce some of the duplicate questions that get ask from time to time and will get user quicker to typical questions and topics.

    If anyone feels I a link should be included, PM me with the link and if it makes sense I will add it.

    Question: What is the quickest way to access My Recordings?
    Press the DVR button twice to access My Recordings.
    Press the DVR button three times to get to your recording schedule.

    Question: How can I jump between Tuners?
    Answer: User the Pip Swap button on the remote

    Question: When you freeze(pause) the picture on the vip622, and want to see the detail(of the picture) at the bottom of the screen, is there a way to temporary remove this information?
    Answer: Press the Skip Forward button to move forward 1 frame. That will make the status bar disappear.

    Question: I scanned and added HD locals from my antenna to the channel grid. How do I delete the channels I no longer want, so they will not show up on my guide?
    Answer: Menu 6--9, then click the box next to the channels that you want to delete, then click the delete button.

    Question: How can I pause both of my buffers and toggle between them?
    Answer: Currently to pause and toggle between buffers you must have the pip window up and then use the PIP swap feature to toggle. Dish has indicated recently that sticky pausing will be include along with PIP side by side in the next release.

    Question: When switching between guides (all,sub,fav,HD), is there a button you can press to make the guide go to the channel you are currently tuned to?
    Answer: Since favorites consist of channels that the user has selected, there is no way to jump to a channel that is not currently in your channel list.

    Question: Sometimes I want my Recordings sorted by Date and other times I want it sorted alphabetically. Is there a way to toggle between the two?
    Answer: Yes. Press the PIP swap key on the My Recording page will toggle between your last two sort choices.

    Question: Is there a quick way to access Picture Side by Side?
    Answer: Yes. Press the PIP Position button
