A few months ago changed my programing package to the Flex Pack. I was told my old 311 receivers were out dated and had to change to the Vip 211K or go with the Hopper. I changed packs to reduce costs and got the ViP 211k as replacements.
Now, I like to program the receiver to auto tune or reminde me of upcoming daily/weekly shows but the timer funtion only works on the day I create it, even if it is a daily or weekly timer. I contacted DISH a month and a half ago about the problem and they told me to call back around 1 1/2 months while they look into the problem. They didn't, so I requested new receivers to replace the one's they replaced the 311's with. The timer function on these new ones still don't work.
Anyone else out there have the ViP 211k receiver and use the timer function, because a DISH tech supervisor told me they won't look into the problem unless more people report the same problem.
frustrated, With the VIP 211k you are still able to set up weekly timers. Have we tried setting up a manual timer by
Menu>Daily Schedule>Timers>Select Manual Timer>(chose the timer frequency you want)>Edit Timer>Set the desired time and date>Done
I've set up manual timers. My version is: Menu> Timers > Create Timer> "Choose Frequency" > "Choose Timer Type"> "Choose Channel"> Edit Time> Start Time> End Time> Create Timer> Done. I've choosen Weekly, Daily and 'Mon-Fri' timers. I've choosen VCR, Auto Tune and Reminder timers and every combination of the Frequency and Timer Types. The timers work on the day I make them, but after that they DO NOT WORK. The timers remain on the Timer List, but they simply do not work.
Thanks for the information! I'd like to take a look at your equipment. Will you send me a Private Message with your account/phone number and 4 digit security code, please?
