Sat-go reciever purchased used.Have confirmed reviever/lcd and rg-179 cable work as have hooked up to my directv sat.The programming is not my subscription, appears to be previous owner in CT. I live in CO. Have been in contact w/Directv for setup confirmation, not a lot of expertise from rep. Never did ask for RID or card number, not sure if this matters. Numerous attempts to set up failed, have confirmed round dish single lnb and new zip (80503) w/ 164 azmith and 44 elev. as per directions. Have even pushed rest button, but didn't seem to affect any change. No registered response from any sat or transponder, if continue to set up end unit will cycle between searching for sat and downloading guide banners.D-tv rep says sat unit is steady state and w/no damage visible to unit- is working. Can moving unit across country cause it to get lost- like GPS?

ok explain a little more please. Make sure U have the coax coming from the Dish (outside) going into the back of receiver where it says SAT in. or if it is a dual tuner (ie: 322 etc) make sure the coax in hooked up to the Separator. also make sure u are using the correct dish and lnb to match ur receiver. I ALWAYS do a "check switch: every time I hook up to a new/different dish just to make sure the receiver recognizes the LNB.
If you are not using cable or Sat. TV, you need a DIGITAL outdoor antenna, preferably outdoors for better reception. Forget the garbage indoor window or set top systems as they will not pull in a good signal, unless you are near the TV Stations transmitters. Cosco or WalMart has TV Outdoor systems.
hello, try tightening your antenna connection this happens when your signal input cable is fualty or loose check that first. then try all other connection that come from your cable,sat reciever or antenna hook up. if your using a digital reception device or digital antenna check those connections to. and be aware that digital reception has interuptions and they depend on the distance between you and the digital signal broadcast station, sometimes storms and atmospheric conditions may cuase a brief lapse in the signal.(stutter) what are you using for a reception? satelite, cable or a digital antenna? hope this helps
Be sure the speakers are "on" on the menu......un plug it and your cable or sat reciever for a bit and re start them both. Lastly see if problem still there on a dvd player........if so............it may need a main board. You may be able to circuimvent by getting sound thru a surround or amplified spkr set up and hook to your cable or sat reciever too
Couple of items come to mind. In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB? Set the receiver to SAT Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT Check the TV is on Monitor RGB. Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV. Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues. Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work. You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)
Offhand, if the previous system/connection works then we should leave that as it is. Coax-Sat Receiver-Coax-DVD Recorder-TV and TV should be Channel 3 (or 4).
On the new Sat Receiver, coax from LNB/Dish to Sat Receiver, yellow, red & white to TV. TV should be set to Video 1 or A/V or Video. There should be no snow, rather if no reception, it should be blue indicating video has muted in the absence of a good signal.
it is multi sat multi sat compatable!My opinion is buy a powerd multi switch you can getem at radio shack or from a sat dealer that will clear p your prolem i belive also check all your rg6 coax ends u may have a a bad splice or a fraid shiel wich will make your reciever do the same thing but hope you can fix it
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
