Connecting DIshNetwork TV2 to a Panasonic Viera TV (Mdl#TH-42PD50U)
Hi and Thanks in advance for any and all help
I am trying to help a friend of mine connect her Viera TV as the TV2 to their exitsting set-up. The previous set-up was on an older TV through a DVD-VCR combo. When I have hooked-up the cable to the TV directly we either get sound and no picture or a fuzzy picture and no sound, this is frustrating as all get out. For the life of me I cannot figure out why, since it is a newer TV and works with no problem with the DVD player that is connected to it, and worked very well on just rabbit ears.
I have also tried to locate a DVD/VCR combo with and actual coxail connection that has threads but cannot find one of those either to try connecting it the way it was.
Again Thanks in advanced for any and all help

Re: Connecting DIshNetwork TV2 to a Panasonic Viera TV...
I am assuming you eliminated the vcr so if the cable is directly to the tv try changing the channel to a number beyond 69. If you are able to do this you will need to go to the tv with the receiver and turn them both on and press the menu button on remote 1 then press 6-1-5. This will be the modulator setup screen. Move the highliter to the left and select 73 cable. Move highlight back to right to done and exit ti live tv. Check tv2 now and see what you have ON CHANNEL 73. If you do not find picture and sound there try scrolling up to 116. Let me know the results.

Hi billabongwanmy name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and what you will need to do isreprogram the remote. You will need to take the TV2 remote to the TV1 location,on the TV1 remote press the MENU button two times and it will take you to theSystem Info screen. You will then press and release the SAT button and pressthe record button one time on the TV2 remote. I will leave the link to helpwith these steps.
Go to the tv 1 location with your TV2 remote. Turn TV1 on and using TV1's remote press menu-menu. You will be at the System Info Screen. Take TV2 REMOTE and press and hold the SAT button on the top left until all buttons on the top light up. Release the SAT button. Now key in a two digit number from 1to 16 and press the # key. The SAT button will flash three times. Now press the record button until the remote address for TV2 changes to the number you chose. When accomplished exit out of the screen with th TV1 remote and you should now be able to control TV 2. As a precaution ensure the remote antenna is on the back of the receiver. If you still have difficulty it may be required to move the remote antenna closer to TV2. I hope this answers your question. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can of further assistance.
