hello Sofia. The only signal coming to your tv, ever since the country went to digital signals is coming through your direct TV. For that reason you must use the input from direct tv to make the tv work.
Regarding your question about old fashioned tubes, no, very few of the old fashioned tube tv's are still in use.
I hope I have answered your questioins and solved your problem. Regards, Joe.
If you are looking for a "Big Button" remote call DirecTV and have them send you their big button remote, it is not worth the hassle of dealing with the cheapo brands (emerson, rca, sentry remotes). This allows you to also program your other devices using an on screen menu.
This could be a number of things... Maybe he is out of any programming areas, maybe his antenna is setup wrong, maybe there is signal interference, maybe there is problems with the cable from the satellite to the TV or maybe the box is just bad.
I would just call a service tech from directv to come out a debug the
problem. Being 6 year long client he might even qualify for FREE
upgrades and installation from DirecTV.
You could try our Premium Chat or list here but 1.) you would need to physically be there or your dad would possibly need to be able to have access to the dish and 2.)you would need some tools. You are probable looking at $65 for a cheap coax tester and maybe additional $50 for tools and possible cable. The decision is yours but if you can justify the cost of buying the tools then let us know.
Slide top button on remote to tv. Press and hold mute and select button until the green light on the remote blinks twice. Then press 991. Then press 1. Then press the tv power button once. If the tv doesn't respond hit the channel up button on the remote. If that works press select to store the code and slide the switch back to the left. If it doesn't work keep hitting channel up until it does. It can take up to 30 minutes but it works.
