I got the 722 replacement and kept my owned 942 in order to watch previously recorded programming. The 942 is off the account and only hooked to an OTA antenna. Is there any way to access the OTA tuner and set manual timers to record OTA? When I try it tells me I can't. I assume this is because I'm not paying the fees for the program guide for this box. Anyone know of any work arounds for this?

Good luck. I had a 942 and for the last year and a half had to subscribe to the local channels in my area to even set a manual timer, on any channel, due to a software glitch that Dish never fixed. Once I subscribed to local channels, the problem went away. Fortunately I got them credited fr 6 months.

A deactivated receiver will not have the correct time, even if you kept the receiver connected to an active LNB. So a DVR would never get even manual timers right. There is no way to manually set the clock.
