The reason you are not able to get more channels is because the antenna port is an analog port and the cable was a digital one. If you have other inputs such as red/white/yellow or red/blue/green you can buy an RF modulator at most stores that will allow the cable to be connected to the modulator and convert the signal so it can be sent out using the red/white/yellow cables.

If this option is used you must know how to cycle through the tv inputs to receive the signal. Higher end models have a button on the remote or a screen in the menu to due this. Basic tv may require placing the tv into game mode as that is the only input source.

Hope this helps you and let me know if I can be of assistance again.

Can't get my westinghouse tv to recognize dish network


Happy to help get that fixed right away!

You mentioned that your TV is not recognizing the DISH Network signal, since wedo not know how many TV's your receiver is able to support, or whether it's theTV1 or TV2 having the issue I will address them both.

The first thing we want to do is ensure that all connected components arepowered on (VCR, DVD Player, etc.). Check what channel or input your TV iscurrently on by powering the TV off then back on and noting the channel orinput that appears on screen when the TV is powered on.

If TV1:

Check what type of cable is used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you areusing a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver'sback panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4Out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4,if it has "Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TVto channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, orHDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until pictureappears; most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or"Source" button. If the issue persists, check that theconnections between your DISH receiver and your TV are secure then reset thereceiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds then plugging it backin. If not fixed then connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to thesame TV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. Ifit works with the other component then call us at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) foradditional troubleshooting, if it still doesn't work with the other componentthen the cable should be replaced.

If TV2:

Access "Modulator Setup" from TV1 by pressing the menu button(on the top left of DISH remote) then pressing the numbers 6-1-5. Tune TV2 tothe channel that appears under "TV2 Out" on screen. If stillno picture, verify the mode (air or cable) that TV2 is on. Then change themodulator setup to match this mode (air or cable). After changing modulatorsetup, tune TV2 to the channel that appears under "TV2 Out" onscreen. Check that the connections between your DISH receiver and your TV aresecure then reset the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 secondsthen plugging it back in. If not fixed then connect another component (VCR, DVDPlayer, etc.) to the same TV, using same cable, same input, and same channel tosee if it works. If it works with the other component then call us at1-800-333-DISH (3474) for additional troubleshooting, if it still doesn't workwith the other component then the cable should be replaced.

New jensen jdtv-1020 won't see either air or cable signal as TV2 with Dish DVR 625. An older Emerson color TV sees cable 100 but the new jensen does not see it during auto detect.


Hello, Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service here. First thing to try is putting the TV on channel 73. At TV1, press menu on the remote, followed by 6-1-5 (system setup-installation-modulator setup), make sure that TV2 out is on cable mode, which should default to channel 73. If you're still not getting a picture, try performing a hard reset on the receiver. To perform a hard reset, unplug the receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds, then plug it back in. The receiver reboots (which can take about 5 minutes), then check TV2 again. If there is still no picture, make sure all of the cabling is secure, and bypass any other devices (VCR, DVD player, etc.). If this does not fix the problem, please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com and I will make sure we get this taken care of for you.

The tv is connected to Dish Network as TV2. I accidentally changed the channel & now I can't get it back to channel 90 - it only goes to 13 now. How do I fix this?


In the menu screen, you must find antenna connections. For example " TV Air "(over the air channels 2 through 13) or cable TV. You must tell the menu to select cable TV (with the original remote). This will allow you access to channel 90. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

TV will not turn on to channel 4 everytime. I have a cable box and need the tv to remain on channel 4.


As long as the tv is not unplugged it should stay on the same channel when turned back on. If you have the tv plugged into the cable box, when the box is shut off it basically unplugs your tv and the tvs memory is reset. The tv should be plugged in to its own outlet or leave the cable box on and turn off the tv. If you turn everything on, cable box and tv, and have a picture, go into the tv menu and auto program the channels, it should only lock in on channel 4 since it will be the only channel the tv will receive.

Frozen picture on LG LCD 37"


Try One of your working TVS and connect it to your cable outlet of the TV that is having problems. If that TV Does not work then there may be a degraded fitting or the Leg coming of the splitter to that outlet could have a Low Signal Problem
Next Take the First TV that was not working properly and put it on the cable outlet of one of the TVs that is working properly and if the TV set works on that Channel then you know it is not your TV that it must be the cable

Try resetting the TV. Here's how to do it - Unplug the TV's power cable. Keep the Channel Down and Volume Up buttons on the TV pressed and plug the power cable back into the outlet. You will hear a click when you plug it back in if the reset is successful. Hopefully this should restore your video and audio.
