Re: Hooking a Wii to Dish Network reciever(not a hd tv)
It sounds like you have a pretty new TV. This means that there should be multiple AV jacks in the back for setting up your many components. Plug in the receiver into #1, the Wii into #2, and any other equipment you may have (DVD, VCR etc.) in the same way. You should then use the original TV remote to switch between Video 1, 2, 3 and so one for each compnent you want to use. The button on the remote will be labeled video, tv/video, input select, or input, something like that.

Hi Meagan, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet
Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could
help. Connecting your TV to your DISH Network receiver should be
fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are
using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD
receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to
want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using
either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input
in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding
a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input,
source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one
until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the
picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything
should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and
if you have further questions feel free to ask!
Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see youhave DISH Network HD the hdmi does not work. Depending on what the TV is set to;480, 480i, 720, 1080i will depend on what you have your receiver set to. Afteryou check your TV settings press the buttons of Menu-6-8 and it will take youto HDTV Setup. Make sure your TV settings match your DISH Network HD settings;if you have anymore questions please e-mail me at Michael.email@example.com.
To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.
should go from your satellite to dish box might say sat on bck of box then the next [connection think says tv that should go to tv itsself or dvd vcr whatever ur hooking up to it then from that point hook it to ur tv
In order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.
Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok 1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr 2. then other scart from vcr into tv 3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr. you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr. If the channels change then your on the right av channel. Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through. You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead. say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems. Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
