Exclamation Dish DVR 722K and remote problems.

We just got a 46' sony bravia LCD HDTV and we just had dish come out and put a 722K DVR to replace our old receiver dish hooked it up and everything worked well at first now the remote will no longer communicate with DVR . It will work for a little bit then it will no longer communicate with it. We don't understand whats wrong. What is causing this and is there a way to fix it? Thanks!

Make sure the batteries are not weak. If it works sometimes then the remote address must be correct, or check p. 73 in your User's Guide.
You can also set up remote for TV2 to work on IR only as see if it works for TV1, if it does, then maybe the original remote is defective.
Sometimes things do block the IR path that are not obvious, as JLV pointed out. Bright lights in the room, especially fluorescent, can interfere.

Default 722k IR Problem

I have noticed a IR problem with the 722k. When I turn off the TV (Samsung LN52B750) the dish remote works fine. If I have the backlight adjustment on the TV too low, the remote stops working. Seems like the IR sensor of the 722k is beiing swamped by exterior IR. The B750 does not suffer from the same IR problems as its predecessor.

This has happened with various LCD TV's for several years.

The backlight is causing IR interference with the remote.

It is a problem with the backlights, not a problem with the remote.

After 30 -40 minutes the problem is usually reduced when the backlight tube is warmed up and stabilized.

Try creating more seperation between the display and the receiver.

My problem may be different. The lower the TV backlight setting causes problems and warmup does not help. All other IR sensors on my other Audio components work ok.

Default Dish 722K and Samsung LN52B750

I recently purchased the Samsung LN52B750 to replace my old tv. I started noticing problems with the Dish remote within a couple of days. As mentioned in a previous post, changing the backlighting settings does seem to make it better (in my case watching in standard mode instead of movie mode). However, the solution is to call dish and ask for a UHF remote. They will send a new remote package that includes different "receivers" for the 722k that will not be counfounded by the IR emitted from the Samsung TV. Hope this helps!

If both remotes are put on UHF A and B then the IR problem goes away. Lights in room can also cause problems, especially the new CFL lights. By going to UHF that problem is eliminated.

No. You are doing exactly the wrong thing. People who report this problem say that it works best at full backlight brightness, and that low brightness causes problems like you report.

A lot of factors play into the quality of picture received on your TV. Although I see a better picture on my 922 compared to the 722 I replaced, how the program is being broadcast, the settings on your TV, and the quality of your TV factor into the picture. Not all TVs are made the same.

Question Vip 722k or 922

Hi,
I just bought a LG 47" T.V/ H.D. 3D it goes up to 1080p and the picture of the air is really good quality and the Blue Ray player is even better quality. What receiver would I use to get the best quality picture as my T.V. can get Good quality pictures. I have a Vip 22k right now and the H.D. isn't bad but I am looking for a much better quality picture on H.D. Which one is the Best to get and one that I can use on 2 T.V.s Please let me know and Thank u.

Are you looking for DVR capability? The VIP 222k has the same chip set as the VIP 722k and the 922. I have a 922 (which is a DVR receiver) using an HDMI cable between my receiver and TV (Samsung LED 47"). I notice a better picture with my 922 on some channels compared to the 722 I had before. The 722k has the same chip set as the 222k so the picture should be the same. As I stated before, PQ depends on how it's filmed, broadcast, settings, and the TV.

I like the PQ of my 922 (the PQ on some channels blows me away) but as I said, the 922 is a DVR receiver.

You're not going to get a better quality picture than you get OTA because all of it is compressed, some more than others. Also, there is little 1080p available and it's only on a few movies not on any of the regular channels you are watching which are all 1080i. Not all BD is even as good as most OTA HD.
