Check your remote..do you have either an "Antenna" button or a "TV/VCR" button? If so, the next time it happens, try pusing that button.

How do I set the T.V.? I have Dish Network. A message comes up stating "No Signal".


You need to have the input on the TV set to what ever the "Dish" cable uses. If the dish box uses HDMI then find which HDMI port it is plugged into on the TV and set the input to that.

My sat box is connected to hdmi tv with hdmi cable and scart lead, but when i switch on in morning will not go to tv


You don't need the scart if you're using HDMI. However, the TV will not auto-switch with an HDMI connection.

If your TV does not switch on remembering its previous settings, you'll need to reselect HDMI each day.

The dish cut out today. the satalite took hours to reset now it is on a dish infomerciall channel and our remote is not able to turn channes but still functions with the tv. we have an old box style...


Hey Ryno4606,

It is possible, while rare, for a remote to no longer be programmed to the receiver after a reset. To fix that a simple readdress should fix the problem. I have provided the steps below to assist you with that!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hughes direct tv receiver (director pack)


get new ones i just had 2 boxes replaced 1 was sd-hbh and the other was a hi-def box both were fried cause the nit wit that set up the system didn't ground the dish and we got a lightning strike that fried them.... i would call direct tv or whoever your sat provider is because mine were replaced for free with 2 brand new boxes.... and you should check to see if your dish is grounded it will usually be grounded to a water pipe somewhere in the area of where your multi-switch is located
