    The problem with the Dish Network 322/522 receivers is that after 6 hours of non-use or after the daily program guide update... the receiver goes into a standby mode. The only way to get out of this mode is to press "Select" on the remote. Pressing a channel does not work.

    The TiVO's Dish 322/522 IR routines do not support the "Select" button, so cannot get the receiver out of standby after it enters that mode.

    I see an easy solution. For the Dish 322/522 receivers, simply add the "Select" IR code before every channel change. "Select" only brings up channel identification when not in standby... so is safe to do at any time.

    I think improving support of these Dish network receivers will make a lot of customers happy! A simple search of Dish 322 will show how many customers are frustrated with this problem.

    How do you add this to your channel changing routine?

    You cannot. This is something TiVo has to code in, or Echostar has to fix in their firmware.
