Your problem is a combination of calibration of your TV and signal strength of your Dish system. Proper color calibration will remove the motion blur and SD issues in the average home. If you continue to have poor quality on your dish system after calibration, then Dish needs to check your signal strengths again. (AND fix it.)

AOC PD4264 Screen fault


Extremely blue color temperature that cannot be adjusted; some false-contouring artifacts in dark scenes; no picture-in-picture; limited connectivity with just one DVI and no HDMI inputs.
If use as a TV monitor:
The number of colors you can display is controlled by the video card installed in your computer. In order to display more than 16 colors, the proper video card driver must be installed. Contact your computer or video card manufacturer to obtain the latest driver from them.
If you are watching standard-definition or Cable/RF signal on an HDTV, the picture may appear to be of poor quality. This is because the TV is designed for viewing HD or at least digital content. Your best bet would be to upgrade to a Dish Network HD receiver and connect it to the TV with an HDMI cable. Similarly inputting analog signal to TV from your DVD player will not appear to be of great quality. A newer DVD player would most likely have component video output which would look much better. To get even greater quality, an upconverting DVD player connected with an HDMI cable would look the best. You could also upgrade to a Blu-ray disc player, which is capable of playing HD Blu-ray discs as well as DVD's at higher resolution. A less expensive choice could also be a streaming media box.

How do i install a dvd player with dish network


Hello, if your receiver and tv are HD you want this hooked up separately to get the best picture. If you just want it hooked up to standard definition then take the cable going from the receiver to the tv and connect it from your receiver to your DVD then connect one from your DVD to your tv.

Box does not recognize hdmi


Hello, Daniel Busa with Dish Network here. The easiest way to tell if your box has a bad hdmi port onthe backm, is to remove the hdmi cord from the receiver and connect it to a blue ray player or other device. If it works the port is most likely bad. Otherwise I would recommend a hard reset, if you have a surround sound receiver cycle the inputs on it and make sure everything is on the proper input/source.

Distorted color on hdmi output


If you haven't already stumbled across the fix: I just had the exact same problem after about eights months of casual use. Unplugging the DVD player for about 15 minutes and then plugging it back in "solved" the problem. Until next time it happens, anyway.

My tv has several video inputs & this is the way I did mine. I ran the red,white & yellow cable from the dish box to "video 1" on the tv. For the Magnavox I ran a coax cable from the dish receiver out to the rear of the Magnavox & the red,white,yellow from the magnavox to the tv "video 2". Check the dish box to see if the switch in the back reads channel 3 or 4 & set your magnavox to the same. Make sure in the setup you have it set to rear connections. If you have picture on both video settings on the tv everything is golden. Hope this helps.

Connecting DVD to cable only TV and Modulator box and Dish Networ


Without knowing the actual ports on each of these devices, all I can suggest is that have you tried connecting your DVD to the Dish box (thru VCR scart connection at the back of the Dish box) and then the Dish box into your modulator (and then modulator into your tv.

I have a similar system set up but we have a Sky Digital box here, no idea if its the same as a Dish box but im assuming so.

You need to upgrade to HD. Sd is going to look like you are playing 8-track quality sound on a cd player. Just not a good mix. You should be able to receive some HD chanels via your over the air antenna. Anothr great way to experience HD is to get a Blu-ray player and connect it with a HDMI cable.Your older DVD player may have 480p capability. That means it has a component cable on the back(Red Green Blue). You will still have to hook the audio up after that. Then go into your DVD menu and set it to progressive scan for a 16x9 widescreen. And buy widescreen DVD's from now on. They are made for that TV Good Luck. I reccomend Dish Network, or Direct TV. They both ave well over 100 HD channels and provide all the equipment for free. Once you go HD, you won't be able to go back!

Hook the DVD Combo unit to the Video input of the TV. Not through your Dish Box. Then to View the DVD/VCR, switch the TV to the Video Input. Good Luck and have a great weekend
