How to stop a DVR recording on dish?

Can you stop or even cancel a primetime anytime recording on the dish DVR?

If the show is being recorded - hit the stop button on the remote and you will be given the option to stop the recording.

If you want to remove all future recordings use DVR->MyRecording->Schedule->timers

Find the entry for the show you no longer want to record and select it, then choose the Delete button.

How do I cancel an automated recording on a DISH Network DVR?

We have DISH Network service, with one box servicing 2 televisions. There are a few weekly automated recordings that we no longer want but we do not know how to cancel them. We are currently skipping or deleting the scheduled recordings, but is there any way of canceling the scheduled recordings altogether? Thanks

Hit the DVR button on the remote, and then go to the Timers button. This lists the programs you've told the DVR to record for you on a regular basis.

If you delete an entry here, that show will no longer be recorded, ever.

You can also reorder the priorities of your programs here as well. So, for instance, if you want to make sure a certain show is always recorded, move it higher on your list.

Making any changes on this screen will cause the DVR to rebuild its schedule of shows to record - which will take a few minutes. During this time the DVR won't be responsive to your commands.

(unfortunately, mine tends to crash, and then reboots...but it's fine after that, and at it implements my changes so it's just annoying as opposed to completely broken.)

How to cancel AT&T home phone/TV/Internet services?

Hello! My family is switching to Comcast this weekend, and I need to cancel my current services with AT&T. We have their home phone, Internet, and TV (Dish Network) service. What number do I call in order to do that? Haven't been able to find a number online! Thanks!

We are sad to see you go! Please be sure you contact DISH as well if you are going to disconnect, not just AT&T. Most times AT&T cannot disconnect the DISH service just their phone and internet.
