Simple Tips for Changing Channels and Menus on a Standard DISH Receiver

June 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

Here are some simple tips for changing channels and operating a standard receiver's menu. Things that aren't obvious must be introduced. Otherwise, how is anyone supposed to know these options even exists. Let's go over operating procedures for changing channels and using the menu.

  • Changing Channels

There are three basic ways to change channels while watching a program:

Press the remote control UP or DOWN ARROW button to get to the desired channel.

Use the remote control number pad buttons to enter the desired channel number.

Press the GUIDE button and select a program from the Program Guide.

Press the ARROW button to the right to view the browse banner without changing the program that you are watching.

  • Using the Menu

Menus displayed on the TV screen make using the receiver and selecting programs quick and easy. Use the menus to control the receiver and to use its features, such as setting locks, choosing a program, or creating a Favorites List.

  • Opening the Menus

You can open the menus in either of two ways:

Press menu to open the Main Menu, select any of the other menus from the Main Menu.

Use the matching button on the remote control. For example, to open the Program Guide, press GUIDE.

  • Closing the Menus

To close a menu and return to watching a program, press the remote control VIEW TV button, or the remote control CANCEL button.

NOTE: The menu closes if you do not do anything in a menu for several minutes. Any unsaved changes you made will be lost.

  • Menu Options

When you select a menu option, that option takes effect right away. You can select a menu option in either two ways:

If the option has a number next to it, press the number on the remote control number pad that matches this number. If you do this, you do not need to highlight the option first.

Move the highlight to the menu option using the remote control Arrow buttons. Then press the remote control SELECT button.

Lists of Choices in the Menus

When you make a choice in a list, the receiver does not apply the change until you select the Save or OK option. If you do not want to save any changes, select the Cancel option to discard all the changes made in the menu.

There are two types of lists:

A single choice list allows you to select only one choice at a time. If you select another choice, your previous choice is deselected.

A multiple choice list allows you to select more than one choice at one time. If you select another choice, your previous choice(s) stays selected.

Highlighting a Choice in a menu list

Use the remote control ARROW buttons to move the highlight to the desired item in the list. The black arrows on the list show you where you can move the highlight.

Selecting a Choice in a Menu list

To select a choice in a list, highlight the choice and then press the remote control SELECT button. Make sure you select the Save or OK option to save your choice. Select Cancel option to discard your choice.

Canceling a Procedure

To cancel a procedure, you must press the remote control CANCEL or VIEW TV button before you do the last step of the procedure. If this does not work, you must finish the procedure.

The view TV button is the fastest way to get back to watching TV. Tips like these can help you operate the menu and navigate the channels. I emphasize studying steps like these to increase the user experience. I believe everything in life is better once we understand its true purpose.
