I have a VIP622.
I used to have partial Dish Anywhere functionality.
* Also note at the bottom of the screen (far left of the Logout) is display of my DVR nickname and an clockwise animated moving circular icon. Hovering the PC mouse arrow over the DVR name displays "CONNECTION_INITIATED dish########" where ######## is 8 digits of the DVR number found in the receiver | MENU | System Setup(6) | Installation(1) | System Info(3) e R00 #### ####-38
I've reported to tech support, they first tried to tell me I had to have a sling enable receiver. The next time they said that tech support was aware of the issue.
I tried changing the DVR nickname in the receiver's broadband setup then the Web Activation but that process displays a Web Activation Number and states to go to http://dish.sling.com/activate within the next 15 minutes. That web address is not active.
Hello Art. With a non-Sling enabled receiver, customers are required to have a Sling Adapter and an Internet connection to obtain full access to dish anywhere. However, without the connections, you will still have some access via dishanywhere.com
If you do have the Sling adapter, are you able to disconnect it and hard reset the receiver? Once it comes back up, connect the adapter back.
Hello, Art. It looks like with the newer version of DISH Anywhere that some of the features on our older receivers are no longer compatible. Without a Sling adapter, you are still able to watch video on demand content and change setting on your receiver.
I used to have the limited functionality, but as stated in original post it is not working. Dish Anywhere is not working with my receiver..."Loading DVR Recordings... Loading Timers...,etc. and WATCH button is greyed out on GUIDE
I understand these features used to work, and I completely understand why this is very frustrating. The features you have outlined are no longer available on your current receiver through DISHAnywhere.com or the DISH Anywhere App.
You previously stated "Without a Sling adapter, you are still able to watch video on demand content and change setting on your receiver. "
How do I do that?
Thank you, Art. Video on demand content can be accessed by clicking on Shows/Movies and selecting the program. You can access your settings by clicking on the Settings in the upper right hand corner next to Log in/out.
