We have a client that is a DISH network user. They have 3 HD receivers with Tivo series 2 boxes connected to them. Client is HUGE Tivo fan (as am I) and has to have Tivo. If DirecTV would get their heads out of their rears and put Tivo back in their DVR's would the world be a better place....

Anyhow, so the issue is that the Dish Network receivers go into a Standby or Hibernation mode every day. I am not sure if this is at a set time or if it is after a certain period of inactivity. If anyone knows, please let me know. We are taking over a project and the old Crestron programmer/Installer programmed the Crestron system to
"press select" every hour to keep the system from going into standby. As you are probably aware, this is a horrible solution as it presses select when they may be watching a program, recording a show, or while they are in the guide.

If someone has has this issue on Dish network and found an elegant solution to this, please let me know

Ideally, yes. You can also change the amount of time before it kicks in. BUT, I have YET to actually have it WORK! On ANY reciever! SUCKS! I like to leave HD demo channels on at the showroom when Im not there. Have to use DTV due to this "feature" w Dish.
No, I wont install your plasma with an orange extension cord hanging down the wall.

That is exactly what I was told. They turned this "off" but it kept doing it. Said the feature was Broke or didnt work.... Any one have a Crestron system or something and figure out a way to make this work..

This may be silly, but as opposed to the select command, can you send a volume command? One of 2 possibilities I see. Since your most likely using the volume output as a fixed volume the sat won't do anything, or, if the tv is using the sat volume you could alternate vol up, and vol dwn. It would seem to me that one volume level up or down would not change the sound level enought to even be noticeable..
I long for a better world. One in which a chickens motives will not be questioned when mearly crossing the road.

I believe the receiver still shuts down late at night to update the guide info.Any Dish
ir command will wake it from it's sleep.I dont think volume will work becuase its for the TV not the actual receiver,something along the lines of the cancel button should work.

Before it shuts down to update the guide it will ask to shut down,cancel will stop that from happening.

Just an idea

So, if I read the above few posts correctly, we should give it an exit command or select or something prior to this shut off time or after this shut off time to wake it back up?

ARRRGGGHHHH Damn DISH Network....

The receiver reboots every night which turns off the receiver. Simply set a timer to wake-up the receiver each day shortly after the reboot. It doesn't have to record anything it just has to tune to a program which will automatically turn on the receiver.
