    The tv used to be on dishnetwork and never did this until it was hooked up to direct tv. We were thinking it must be something with their box

First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

My Westinghouse LTV-27w6-HD picture is scrambled periodically

Before you bother to read the text below, you might be better served looking at this thread:
Westinghouse troubles
If you aren't nauseated yet, continue with my original reply:
If the picture seems 'pixelated,' broken up into randomly sized and placed blocks, then it is losing synchronization with the digital signal coming in. This is certainly repairable and may be due to lousy assembly quality rather than a failed part. Most of our modern sets are assembled by robots but there is a degree of manual soldering still to be done and this can result in 'cold' solder joints that can fracture and fail due to heating and cooling of the innards of a set.
Unfortunately, unless you have a semi-retired TV service man in your neighborhood who is already financially independent, the labor costs could run fairly high for this kind of service since it requires methodical searching of the circuitry and could eat up some time.

take your tv to a w/shop and have the following
tunner voltage pulse variation on a avo meter has you change channels. if the difference of voltage is not unform when you are changing from to channel then you should change the control ic on the rf stage or check the capacitors a round the rf ic for variations in value.

TV picture scrambled and getting worse

This can be a fault in the tuner, IF, or primary part of the video processing. With age and use some of the parts, and especialy capacitors, in these sets can become thermo sensitive and unstable.

To service these types of faults can be very time consuming. On top of this would be the cost of the parts.

Considering the age and type of set that you have, I would suggest that it is time to be looking for a new set.
