Set your timers and turn it off yourself. When the timer fires, it will turn on, play the program, and turn off again.bhmorehead said:My new VIP211 automatically turns itself off after a while, and leaves a Dish logo screensaver wandering around the screen. It says "Press 'select' to continue".
If you don't send it a "select" first, it won't turn the video signal on and it won't change channels. I have already turned off the auto-off feature in the vip211 menus and that doesn't help. It still turns itself off and starts the screensaver. Has anyone figured out a hack or a workaround?
