RCA 32'' TV .....Good Picture but No Sound

I have DISH Network satelite tv service. TV is located in the master bedroom. The problem is when I connect a coaxial cable to the antenna input and turn on the DISH unit, I get a good picture but static hissing sound. I cannot hear the program's sound at all. I even tried the DVD player through the same connection and get the same results. So what I do to get some use out of a ''good'' tv (while watching a DVD movie) is goto the audio menu and set the tv to ''external speakers with fixed output mode'' and send the signal through my receiver. This works just fine but I cannot watch DISH satelite on this tv because of the static noise. I have have the service technicians here at the house on three separate occasions with no solutions. I had DIRECTV before DISH and the tv worked just fine. The veiwing channel was 3, as opposed to 60 for DISH. Please help if you can!

I have a dish 625 receiver and i wanted to know if i could use an rca to hdmi cable to connect receiver to hd tv


ashlinlow,

You can definitely use an RCA to HDMI converter, though since our 625 receivers do not have HD capability it won't improve the picture at all. If you would like to look into upgrading to HD equipment, you can reach me directly at thomas.faust@dish.com!

Dish Network remote and receiver problem


Hi Tracy, my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. With the TV2 remote working for both TVs, you will want to make sure the TV1 input on the receiver is connected to the TV cable (RCA or Coax cable) and TV2 input is connected to TV2 port on the back of the receiver. I will provide you our link explaining in more detail about connections. If you have any further questions I will provide you my e-mail; michael.ouston@dish.com. Here is the link I promised you: http://www.mydish.com/support/same-video-2-tvs

I want to connect dvd recorder to dish network solo dvr vip 612 that is split for two tvs.


Hey! This is Becki Barned, with Dish Network customer service!!! You may have already gotten this taken care of, but either way, here are some steps if you still need some help! How I imagine you have this set up, is that you have RCA cables going from the receiver to the main tv. In this case, you will want to take the RCA cables from the receiver to the DVD recorder to a port that says IN. Then you will want to have either coax or RCA going from the DVD from a port that says OUT to the tv. If you use coax, the tv needs to be on channel 3/4, and the DVD on an input. If you use RCAs, the tv will also need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2. Good luck! Blog back if any troubles!! :) Happy troubleshooting!!!!

Just purchased RCA HD Tv. What is the RCA code


We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Network remote to control your RCA TV. We're going to start by pressing and holding the TV button located on the top of your remote until all mode button back lights come on, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter the codes for your RCA TV here are some of the codes we currently have: 503, 627, 633, 725, and 505. Press the pound (#) button. To check that the code works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV. Remember that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is the case, try the other codes listed for your RCA TV until you find one that is compatible with it.

We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

TV ''Dish'' not working on second TV


check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.

Universal remote


only a uhf remote will work from that location, you will probably need to get a dish network 6.0 or 6.3 remote

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?


if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.

Wavy lines and jogging TV picture


it could be any of the things you listed, the coaxial output on the dvr, where it says channels 3-4 out, the cable , or the coaxial input port on your tv. the dvd player is probably hooked up with rca cables (red white and yellow) so the reason you dont have the issue with it is because its on a different port, one solution would be to hook your receiver up to the tv using this kind of cable, this would also get you stereo sound, you would then watch dish network programming on a video input channel,
if you want to narrow the problem down, i would suggest hooking a vcr up with the cable thats connected to 3-4 out, play a tape and see if the issue continues, if not the issue is with the dvr, if so try a different coax cable, if this resolves the issue, the issue was the cable, if not unfortunately the issue is your tv
