I just got a dish network HD 722K DVR.

I connected the TV 2 video output (analog) from the 722 directly to the video IN on the Philips DVDR 3575H.

I also tried connecting TV2 video output (analog) from the 722 to the Yamaha av receiver video Cable IN.

I have the audio (analog) going from the 722K to the av receiver audio Cable IN.


I can record sound but no picture. The video and audio OUT from the Philips DVDR is going to the Yamaha VCR IN jacks. The video and audio Yamaha VCR out jacks go to the Philips Video and Audio IN.


The TV Input 1 is using the composite video. Input 2 is using the component video connections. I am recording from E1 rear on the Philips DVDR. The 722 is in dual mode. I switch to VCR on the Yamaha and TV input 1 when I want to play back.


I have analog connections from the dish to the av receiver to the TV. And analog connections from the av receiver to and from the Philips DVDR (VCR IN and OUT).


I can't figure this one out.


I had a 625 DVR with recordings on it and I tried recording from it with the Philips DVDR on a TV that was not in use. I connected the 625 to the Philips to the TV but I could not see anything on screen. The Philips obviously has pass through and I should have been able to access the 625s hard rive without the sat signal hooked up to it but I couldn't see the 625 menus on screen.


It has been such a pain changing these dish DVRs out.


Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

I have no problems with my 722k and my recorder. You may just be unclear on how to select the line input or monitor what you're recording. Wajo covered the input part. Now just make sure you've selected the same input on your tv that you have the philips outputs connected to.


I've also found on the 722k, to get proper widescreen format, you need to use TV1, not TV2. Not ideal, I know, but that's what you have to do.

What about your prior post that your 722 output WS via TV2 after a recent update?


I changed my help file based on that post and directed people to it.

Sorry for the confusion. Dish gets complicated with TV1, TV2, single mode and dual mode. Everything stated so far is accurate. But since the OP is in dual mode, he can only get proper widescreen on TV1.


To summarize, here are the different scenarios for Dish 722/722k I've seen on my current firmware:


Dual mode: TV1 is WS, TV2 has bars

Single mode: TV1 and TV2 are WS

Thanks for clarifying, now I only need to know about the "firmware update" you mentioned in that other post... do you think that played a part in this at all, or will the 722 output WS on TV1 and TV2 in Single-Mode regardless?

I use single mode and connect the 722k composite video & audio directly to a Panasonic DVDR and it works.


To me Dish is confusing in their terminology. They refer to recording from TV1 or TV2. But of course you don't record from any TV.

Thank you all for those comments. I need to check the video input on the Philips, I don't know where that it and


Mike99 if you have your composites going directly in the Philips, do you have your components going to the TV or av receiver?

Video Input is in the General Setting > Video menu.

I had the Video menu on S-Video, that was it. I had four manuals I was juggling and unfamiliar with all of them. This might explain a lot. Thank you so much Wajo !!!!


I can't have the audio go directly to the 3575 because I need to run it through my av receiver. And I had to change it to analog to match it to the analog inputs to the 3575.


Can I have the component and composite videos of TV 1 on the 722 hooked up at the same time? One set going to the 3575 the other going to the AV receiver?

I have a 722K and I do know that all outputs are hot at the same time. So that should work. But remember, TV1 component and composite outputs share the audio (red/white) outputs. So you'll need a splitter for the audio. I run my TV1 via HDMI to my tv and composite to my Panny EH-75V dvd recorder, so I kave no conflicts with audio.

Update probably has nothing to do with it, but I've only had Dish a year, so I don't know the history. It's worked that way all along for me.

I've never used the optical out with the 722K. But I don't see why it shouldn't work.

I connect the 722k composite video & audio (the yellow, red & white) directly to a Panasonic DVDR.


The Panasonic DVDR connects directly to the HDTV using component video (red, green,blue). My component does not connect to the A/V receiver.


However the DVDR audio connects to the A/V receiver using an optical audio connection.

that looks like it might work, but if i have the SAT and the DVDR bypassing the av receiver using hdmi, I can out put the sound of both by using the digital audio out of the TV to the AV receiver, no?


thanks for your reply

wait, I can't use the hdmi out of the Philips to the TV because then the composite jacks will be shutdown.

I could never record from the second tuner on my non-DVR Dish tuner (the 322). Doesn't appear it's allowed, as the option to get to "VCR", and then the "Enable Recording to an External Device" (called "ERD") screen is completely greyed out on the menu (which you need to turn "on" to get the first tuner to record out, otherwise you'll also get a black screen, with audio-only).


I even tried it with a VCR, and still no go.


I don't know if the 722 works the same way, though, as I've never had one. But my tuner doesn't have any "mode" settings (it's just straight, 4:3 SD, each tuner outputs strictly to each TV, and no DVR involved), so I know that part isn't relevant in my situation.
