Can I view my DISH recordings when not connected.

Recommended Posts

Is there a method to watch the programs I have recorded on the external hard drive connected to my receiver when not connected to the the DISH satellites?

We have the Hopper 3 and yes we can.  You just will have it saying searching for signal. Just press DVR and your set.

It depends on your receiver. We have not been able to do this with 211x or Wally receivers without the antenna connected and locked onto at least one satellite. I asked Dish and they confirmed this is the case for the single-tuner "RV" receivers with external hard drives.

I did like Bill suggested and it worked.  The Wally looked for satellites like he said but we were able to view everything on the connected external HD.  BTW the Wally's wireless worked too and I used it to watch Netflix.  Thanks again.
