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.

I have a Durabrand tv. Model DWT 1304A. How do I get my Dish network to work on it. What do I set my tv. and how do i do it. Thank You


I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, here are some steps to get that working!! I hope this helps!

If you are at TV1, where the receiver box is located, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cable that is running between the receiver and the tv, the tv may need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2. If you are at the TV2 location, where there is no receiver, then the tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73.
If you are using an HDMI cable, then the TV will need to be on an HDMI input
If you are using Component cables, your TV will need to be on a component input. (Usually Comp 1 or 2)
If you are using RCA cables, then the TV will need to be on a VIDEO input (Usually Video 1 or 2)
If you are using COAX cables, then the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 (If you are at TV2, then the TV needs to be on channel 60 or 73)

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.

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!

Hopefully after 3 months this has been resolved, but if not, here are some simple steps to take. If you are in TV1, where the receiver box is, you want your tv set to channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cables you have, you may need to put your tv on an input. Usually Video 1 or 2. If you are at TV2, the location away from the receiver, you will want your tv on channel 60 or 73. If neither of these work, try to unplug the receiver from the power source for about 10 seconds. Hope this info helps.

I need to get to channel 73 to connect to Satellite Dish network, but it keeps telling me there is no channel in list ???? what do i do..Thanks


We would be happy to help with that. Some TV's are not ableto go as high as channel 73. This sounds like you're having an issue with yourTV2, this would be the TV located in a different room than your DISH Networkreceiver. Go to the main TV by the receiver, press the menu button located onthe top left of your DISH remote. Once in the main menu, press the numbers6-1-5, this will take you to the "Modulator Setup" screen. Once there we want to highlight the "Air"option located below "TV2 Out" then press the select button. TheChannel should change from 73 to 60. Change the channel of the TV you arehaving an issue with to channel 60; you should get the DISH Network programmingat that point. We hope these steps help you get that fixed. Thank you for beinga valued DISH Network customer!

I accidently changed the channel that I receive satalite tv on, dishnetwork can't solve the problem. TV will not take more than one number & dish tells me the channel should be 60 or 73 help


Is this a tv2 off of the primary reciver from another room?

If so there is a 2 step process to help you fox this.

Generally yes it is 60 or 73 but some installers do change it.

If it is on 60 The it will be on 60 AIR not 60 CABLE , if it is on 73 then is will be on 73 CABLE not 73 AIR..

To simplify this for you go into your tv's menu and select your air/cable type to air and have the tv do a channel scan. once complete use your remote and go up and down the channels in air mode it may find more than one. check and see if any of them are your dish box. If not then go back into the tv menu and select your air/cable setting to cable and repeat a channel scan. again once complete use the tv remote to go up and down channels untill you locate your dish box. If you do both of these and still do not have your signal verify that there is no VCR or DVD player "ON" at that location. They can be hooked up, just not on. Also some tv's have an antenna A and antenna B on the back of them , if your does make sure you test with both antenna connections. If you go thru all of this and still cannot get a signal then a line may have gotten cut or dissconnected and they need to send a tech out.

I have a Samsung 27" TV and need to set it on channel 73 to get a picture from my Satelite Dish. The highest channel the tv goes to is 69.


Set the TV to cable tuning mode and use that channel 73. You have it set for air now so it can only tune to channel 69.

You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer
