Tibo, if you have more than one orbital you will not be able to do this. The way satellite technology operates each receiver must have a dedicated line to it unless you are operating in a QAM environement. QAM'S are usually found in hotels that offer a specific channel line up or large apartment complexes of thousands of units. If you can be more specific about your system such as receiver type, dish type, and LNB and orbital setup I might be able to assist you moreThe short of it is if you split the signal you will only be able to view half of your channels if at all.

How to change to screen size on control what button


Hello, on the Sony remote in the darker gray area is the "wide" button (second row, second button), press it until your set is in the "full" mode. If your screen is still not filled out, it may be the cable box or satellite receiver that needs to be set. With the tv in "full" mode, then set your cable box or satellite receiver to the proper screen setting by using the "format" button on your cable box or satellite receiver remote. 80c70867-1f89-4715-95f8-6e187b94054c.jpg

Are you saying that this happens only when you are using the RF input? Is it not happening when you use the video input from the satellite receiver? Try a DVD player on the input of the video where you now have the Satellite receiver connected. Let me know exactly what you mean as i need a little more information so I can assist you.

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture


Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

Ticker along bottom of screen for news channels and sports channels is being cutoff along the bottom. That is, the ticker moves right to left and I can read it but the bottom 10-15% of the letters is...


Hi,

I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Will I be able to receive HDTV programming on my TV?


Your HDMI Cable or Component Cables will plug right into their receiver box. You won't need anything else and they should supply the cables too.

Unit is on Dish Network. Timed out during nite. "Locked" message on. Experimenting with remote was usless. No picture. Unit is small flat screen. Gift, no manual.


First, power down the Receiver and remove the card, disconnect your dish networking data cables. ( All )
Power down your TV.
Allow 2 minutes for the dish receiver to set, before powering up.
Next, reconnect all cables to dish Receiver and power on the TV and Receiver.
Next, plug in the card for Receiver.
The unit should cycle and show network accessing satellites.
If you have used this system before, you should know any setup steps or configurations.
Hope this has been of some help and your system now works.
Please rate kindly.

You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
Good Luck!

I have got 2 cables coming from my sat dish


Well if you have two horns sticking out on the dish it means that those are your different angles 91 and 82 degrees I think thats right anyways those two cables should go into a box that splits the signal into one and then one cable from that would go from the box to your receiver.

if you are wanting you can also just hook up the 91 its the most used but you probably will be missing a few channels until it is set up properly.

if you only have one horn and two cables coming out of it it just means that you have the setup to run two receivers off that dish.

if you need more info please describe your setup a bit more for me.

Thanks hope this helped
