How to stop a recording in progress on Dish network?
As stated earlier, it is not difficult to set your Dish to record a show in other to watch it at your convenience, but some subscribers have reported certain challenges they usually face. For instance, a subscriber might decide to record a particular show but later changes his/her mind because of lack of interest, or they might decide to wait for it to be aired. In this situation, remember the timer has been set already to record the show. Meaning the DVR will automatically start recording.
As the show is being recorded and you intend to cancel it from recording, press the stop button. But this is for recording a show manually. For instance, if you’ve decided to manually record a show but later decided not to, pressing the stop button puts an end to it, and the program won’t be recorded. But in a situation where the program is set to record automatically by the DVR, the stop button won’t end it due to the present timer. In a case like this, the timer needs to be deleted. This can be done by
- Navigating to the menu>>>>then timer.
- Go to hi-lite prog to stop the recording.
- Here, press delete >>>press yes from the option, press yes again.
- The timer will be deleted, and the recording will also stop.

Navigate to a channel you’re not recording>>>open PIP>>>SWAP PIP>>>change channel. You’ll get a prompt, and the recording will stop. Next is to return to the live mode.
