Most TVs have a choice of air or cable in the menu portion of the tv. press menu go to setup and from there you should see an option that says air/antenna or cable. You will have to either toggle to get the air selection or highlight it. Then you should be able to get to channels you need.

An easier solution may be to go to the Dish receiver that controls the image on the tv you can't get to 73. With tv and satellite on (make sure both green and blue lights are on) press on your Dish remote #1 with the green tab on the bottom the following sequence: MENU - 6-1-5. tHIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MODULATOR SET UP PAGE. Move the highlight from cancel to the mode section an highlight AIR and press select. Then move the highlight back to the right to DONE and press select. Press cancel three times or view live tv. then go to the other tv and put it on ch 60.
Hope this assists you.

If the TV needs to be on channel 73 [TV tuner] for the dish to work then do a channel serch in the tv's menu.
If you had a power outage when you were gone the TV will need this scan done.

Most sattelites use the inputs not the tuner. make sure your on the right input channel,

This set isn't capable of going over 68, this is all it's programmed for. You will need to get a channel box that overrides the tv's programming in order to add the channel 73.

What channel to set for dish network


Depending on the type of cabling your using the input may vary. If you are Connected using a digital cable such as an HDMI or component (y/pb/pr) cable then you want to set the TV to the HDMI or component input by pressing input or source on your TV. If this is connected using coaxial cable tune the TV to channel 60, 62, 73, 75, 3 or 4

Hey murphypat321,

Sounds like the TV may need to be on ch 73 cable rather than 60 air. Try switching the TV to 73, if it goes to 69 then put back on 60, if goes to 73 good. Once you have that set go to your TV1 and bring up the menu. Go to System Setup (6) -> Installation (1) -> Modulator Setup (5) and change the TV2 setup to either cable if on 73 or air if on 60 and the picture should come in if everything's hooked up.

Hope that helped! You can email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com if the problem persists.

I bought a new TV for my #2, but is says I'm not getting a signal when I hook it up to the cable. I have it on channel 60

You can go to TV 1 to make sure TV 2 is suppose to be set to channel 60. Did you run the auto setup on your TV? If you have already run the auto setup on your TV, unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. This will make the receiver reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Then see if you get a picture on your TV 2. If not, the last thing you can try is changing the channel from 60 to 73 through the receiver.

With your DISH remote at TV 1, press the Menu button - Main Menu will display on the TV 1. Then press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 5 (Modulator Setup). On the Modulator Setup screen, move over to TV 2 Out and select Cable, then press select on the remote. This will automatically change the channel from 60 to 73. Highlight Done on the right and press select. Cancel out of each screen till you get back to the TV screen. Go to TV 2 and put the TV on channel 73. You should get a picture. I hope this helps.

Then you will want to unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug itback in it will power up and acquire the signal and once you see that check TV2and you should see the same thing on the screen.

No picture! The Dish TV guy programmed the tv on channel 60 but there is no picture. He said its a tuner problem in the tv. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Can the tuner be replaced or is it some other...


Wewould be happy to help get that fixed right away. The first thing we want toensure is that all connected equipment is on. You mentioned that your TV is on channel 60, to confirm this turn off the TV then turn is back on and note the channel or inputthat appears on screen when the TV is powered on, if the TV is not on channel60 or 73, tune to 60 or 73. Then Access "Modulator Setup" from TV1 by pressing"Menu", 6 for "System Setup", 1 for"Installation", then 5 for "Modulator Setup". Tune TV2 tothe channel that appears under "TV2Out" on screen. If still no picture and the mode for TV2 isset to "Cable", change it to "Air" and change the channel on yourTV2 to 60, if it is already set to "Air" then change it to"Cable" and change TV2 to channel 73. If the issue is only on one receiver, unplug the DISH receiverfor 10 seconds and plug back in. The next thing we want to check is theconnection on the back of your receiver labeled "Home Distribution",this cable carries the picture all the way to your TV2. Start by removing theconnection and screwing it back in, make sure all the connections going to yourTV2 are hand tight. These steps should get your TV2 up and running.

We want to thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

Need to change channel to 73 so my dish tv will work, it seems the highest channel tv set will go is 69


We would be happy to help with that. Some TV's do not havethe ability to go as high as channel 73; this may be the case for your (enterbrand here). We would recommend changing the channel that your DISH Networkreceiver outputs the picture for your TV2. Start by pressing the"Menu" button, from the main menu press 6 for "SystemSetup", then 1 for "Installation", and then 5 for"Modulator Setup". Under TV2 we are going to change the mode to"Air", the channel displayed beside it should change to 60, selectdone on the right side of the screen to save the changes. Now change thechannel of your TV2 to 60 and you should get the DISH Network programming. Wehope this helps. Thanks so much for being a valued DISH Network customer!

Unable to to get cable channels in modulator. Set to cable, channels 73/75 but "connection" grayed out. Cable signal strong. Able to read Digital channels on Local set up with same i/p.


mfbmeb,

The connection button is not utilized from the "Modulator Setup" screen. When changing the channel for TV 2, you can arrow over to either air or cable and pressing select. This will select that option and change the channel to either 60 for air or 73 for cable. Once this selection is made then you would move to the "Done" button and press select. You will return to the "Installation" menu, then cancel out till you are back to the TV screen. I hope this helps.
