SOURCE: does not pick up cable satellite signal

Do you have the satelite hooked threu the regular cable input? If so hook it thru one of the video inputs instead; composite video or component video. the picture and sound will be better and you will be by-passing the problem area of your Tv ( the tuner).

what is your cable provider? they are the ones to contact with this issue. you are paying for cable service and you should have them come and make sure the signal is strong enough for you to get a pure and clean signal.

What kind of cable are you using to connect it with (coax, HDMI, RCA (composite), component, s-video)?
This may be a grounding problem. Either the cable from the satellite dish is grounded to something with a little electricity running through it or you may have a hot ground in your electrical outlet. Or the cable may be on a different ground than your electrical outlet and by connecting the two it has created a slight electrical current. You can try using a plug adaptor to remove your receiver from the electrical outlet ground. These adaptors are meant for older homes and electrical outlets that do not have a third hole or ground plug. The outer metal part of all video connectors is the ground and this may be causing the tv to act strangely.

I hope this works.
