    If I might make another suggestion please do not give me a two rating. I would prefer none.

    You can also try leaving it pluged in and removing the card then re-inserting it. You should get information on the screen if not a picture.

Failed tv reception after about an hour????


Witout knowing your set up I can only guess at the set top box getting hot and failing.
Is the Teac box well ventillated? If not, put it somewhere where it can get cool air (ie not enclosed in a TV cabinet for instance).
I doubt it's your antenna if it works for a while, but you maty want to have your coax connection checked out. If you use a booster, that may be failing.
Sorry I can't be of any further use.

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

Can't get reception. Unplugged everything...EVERYTHING...including dish..reconnected, cleaned card and in dish pointing cannot regardless of respondent, cannot get reception HELP


Getting reception for you is not something we can conjure up. Therew could be a million resons why u cant get reception including a damaged TV receiver or a damaged Disk receiver, broken coax etc etc etc.

You can buy a meter that connects in line between the dish and the Tv that will measure any signal being received for about $20. But is no guarantee that the TV is not faulty even if you see a good signal on the display.
Often better to engage a Tech on site than fall off the roof and become a para or electocute yourself playing around inside the TV.

Life is more valuable than saving a few bucks on a tech!

Since all TV chanels went digital, the TV Channel reception and the Weather reception are lost. I only get a recorded message about the T.V. conversion to digital.


Try using the menu function to re-search for channels. The digital changeover moved many channels and you may just need to have the set search for them all again.

After the digital transition, I lost one of the local channels. When I rescan, all of the other local channels come in no problem. ABC Channel 12 in Flint Michigan is gone. I had it no problem on...


Try the recommendations in a document posted on the FCC site (http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-291403A1.doc)

Also be aware the several stations have had problems with the transition. Some changed frequencies on which they were transmitting and encountered area coverage issues that didn't meet their expectations. They have been working with the FCC to remedy the problems and many stations have temporarily increased output power to compensate for the issues. Some of these stations may be difficult to receive and you may need to get larger antenna. If you are still having problems call the FCC DTV transition hotline at 1-888-CALLFCC (1-888-225-5322) or the TV station for advice.

Over air reception


Unfortunately, I'm in Australia and not familiar with New York TV transmissions, however, the reception principals are the same.

Your signals are most likely bouncing off walls etc in your apartment with several 'reflections' being picked up by your indoor antenna.

This 'multipath' reception causes errors in the digital signals.

Your receiver can correct a certain amount of errors, but if there are too many, your picture will pixelate and the sound will make loud noises and then you will lose reception altogether.

The fix for this problem is connecting to a roof-mounted antenna and signal distribution system. Most apartment buildings have one, however some only distribute cable channels.

There is a possibility of a fault with your TV, but from what you describe, it sounds like a signal issue.

Have a chat to your building manager and ask what system they use for FTA reception in your building.. perhaps there's a fault that they are not aware of.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck.
