The Dish VIP722 is one of the DVR (digital video recorder) receiver models used by Dish Network to deliver its service to subscribers. The VIP722 is designed to allow you to record live video programming as well as set up future broadcasts for recording at another time. The Dish VIP722 can also handle all the basic operation function as other Dish Network set-top receivers, like the setting of your basic preferences. The process of changing the guide color on the Dish VIP722 is fairly straightforward.

Press the “Power” button on the VIP722 remote control to turn the receiver on.

Step 2

Press the “Guide” button to open the Programming Guide on your television screen; then use the “Up/Down” arrow buttons to scroll to the “Preferences” option. Press the “Enter” button to select "Preferences."

Step 3
