Hello robertadamson. I hate to hear that you're experiencing an issue with trying to set recording using the DISH Anywhere app. We are aware of this issue impacting select shows and are collecting information that will help our Engineering team find a solution a bit quicker. Can you send a Private message with your phone number and 4-digit PIN please? If you're not sure how to do that, we have a great guide right here: https://communities.dish.com/t5/Communities-101/How-To-Send-a-Private-Message/td-p/15039

I submitted a thread several months ago about this same problem with Dish Anywhere.  In my case, it will not record anything via Dish Anywhere, no matter if I am using Firefox or MS Edge browser.  I submitted my information to a DISH employee and was told technicians were working on a solution.

 

I guess they are still working on it since the problem remains.

I too have had this exact same issue for about two years now. I never submitted a ticket because I assumed it was a known major issue and would be solved quickly. But as of this week I keep trying to set Bravo’s ‘spy games’ on my iPhone, my iPad, my Mac, on Safari, On Chrome, on MS. I’ll get the same result of recording error’. Dish please fix as this has been happened by way too long.
