it sounds like the tv is already in cable mode, and that it is a older tv. some older tv's will only tune in so many channels. yours going up only to channel 69. if you have the remote for this tv, try punching in channel 73. if it doesn't tune in, then the tv will not recieve channel 73.
good luck

In 1998, UHF-69 was highest channel. you need that TV which has today's technology.

SOURCE: settting tv to a higher channel for cable`

Most TVs have a choice of air or cable in the menu portion of the tv. press menu go to setup and from there you should see an option that says air/antenna or cable. You will have to either toggle to get the air selection or highlight it. Then you should be able to get to channels you need.

An easier solution may be to go to the Dish receiver that controls the image on the tv you can't get to 73. With tv and satellite on (make sure both green and blue lights are on) press on your Dish remote #1 with the green tab on the bottom the following sequence: MENU - 6-1-5. tHIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MODULATOR SET UP PAGE. Move the highlight from cancel to the mode section an highlight AIR and press select. Then move the highlight back to the right to DONE and press select. Press cancel three times or view live tv. then go to the other tv and put it on ch 60.
Hope this assists you.

Why will my rca trflat not go past cannel 69


Hi there. Maybe your TV is not equipped for S channel reception.
Channel 73 falls into the S band; (21-69 is the normal UHF band.)
However in most cases, you must choose in wich band you scan your channels; (H, or S) I cannot imagine that this modern TV should not be equipped for S channels. Try manual channel search, where you'll probably find this possibility.

Need to change channel to 73 so my dish tv will work, it seems the highest channel tv set will go is 69


We would be happy to help with that. Some TV's do not havethe ability to go as high as channel 73; this may be the case for your (enterbrand here). We would recommend changing the channel that your DISH Networkreceiver outputs the picture for your TV2. Start by pressing the"Menu" button, from the main menu press 6 for "SystemSetup", then 1 for "Installation", and then 5 for"Modulator Setup". Under TV2 we are going to change the mode to"Air", the channel displayed beside it should change to 60, selectdone on the right side of the screen to save the changes. Now change thechannel of your TV2 to 60 and you should get the DISH Network programming. Wehope this helps. Thanks so much for being a valued DISH Network customer!

I need this older magnavox tv I bought to go to channel 73, at this time I can only go to 69. It is model # 27TS73-C104. I have sat. reception and need the channel 73. Thanks!


I am assuming you have a dish network duel tuner. You can actually use any channel under 60 for the second t.v.. You can find all that information in that big pamphlet that your remote comes in. It also sounds like your in antenna mode, (please make sure your tv2 side is on before you do this) go to the second tv go to menu system set up scroll through until you see input type or something along those lines, make sure you select cable, then do a channel scan/ setup it should pick it up.

Our power went out last night and I cannot get the tv set back to channel 73 which is the channel set for our DISH network. It only goes to 69 then starts over at Vid 1 and Vid 2.


Channel # 73 may have been deprogrammed from your TV's memory. Follow the instructions in your manual to add the channel back in.

how old it the t.v. - most t.v.s are at least 181 channel compatible..hodge-podge words..in lay terms you have to have the capability on the t.v. to support X nbr of channels...also check to see if you have the menu set at cable or air...setting needs to be on cable

I have a Samsung 27" TV and need to set it on channel 73 to get a picture from my Satelite Dish. The highest channel the tv goes to is 69.


Set the TV to cable tuning mode and use that channel 73. You have it set for air now so it can only tune to channel 69.
