My dish network guide not updating
How long did you have the unit off when you rebooted it?
Try leaving it unplugged for 15 seconds (no trickle power). Cindy Wells (if the phone line is working and the updates are enabled, contact DISH for additional troubleshooting help.) Hi, A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
(Menu - 8 - 5 is the appropriate part of the menu on one receiver to set the time and enable the feature.) You can also use the Inactivity Standby feature on some receivers to get the program guide if you leave the unit on all night.
(Menu Inactivity Standby) By default a prompt will ask you if you want it to go to the standby mode after 4 hours of no activity (remote or front panel).
Check if your phone line to the receiver is working via the phone line.
Make sure the receiver is correctly programmed for your phone service (outside line prefix if needed, rotary or pulse dialing. The program guide is downloaded overnight when the receiver is off.
As soon as the recording is finished though, it will do the reset. No ETA on when it will happen, but your complaints are being heard and considered.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
You get about a 30 second warning to stop it, or it shuts down and takes 3 - 4 minutes to reboot, and still needs to be manually turned back on.
If you are not watching, but listening, or ignoring because a commercial is playing, it shuts down.
For either case, here's a simple prescription that usually works. Move left to fill in your "Zip Code", then right to choose one of your satellites.
Press the following buttons in sequence: Menu, 6, 1, 1. Now use your up/down arrow to choose an option on the right side, and press "Select" to activate it. Check Switch (brings up "Installation Summary" screen)Test (which results in a 158 dialog box - wait until it finishes)Done (visually check that everything is OK)You may have to test another satellite.
When you're all done, press: Done At this point, press "0" three times. You should get a 015 dialog saying the dish is acquiring the signal(s). When it is done, you should see another dialog stating the Program Guide is being downloaded.
