Dish Network DVRs operate in both Single and Dual Mode. In Single Mode, the same programming signal will be sent to all the televisions on your system. Meanwhile, users have the flexibility to enjoy numerous programs on different televisions connected to Dish satellite under Dual Mode. You cannot cancel one mode to switch over to another. However, you can switch between the two modes on the DVR box itself.

  1. Activate your Dish Network DVR.
  2. Press the “Mode” button to switch between the two modes.
  1. Look at the front of the DVR and see if the “Dual” light is on. If so, that means your DVR is in Dual mode. To view the menu, press the “Menu” button on your remote control. The screen will show the mode below the date and time.
