Does the receiver work for AM? I need to isolate the problem circuit. Please try an AM station and update this.

SOURCE: TV Guide onscreen is the wrong time

I've had this problem before, and always fixed it by going through setup again, setting the zip code to another zipcode nearby, and turning it off overnight. By the next morning the time has fixed itself. This is the only thing that has worked for me consistently.

SOURCE: My Sony KD28DL10U digital TV will not tune into freeview

I think this is one of the TV's that wont work as part of the Digital Switchover as it's too old. My Brother has the same TV and has had to buy a new Set top box to get Freeview.

Not receiving signal

Do you have all connections hand tight? Are you getting an error message on the screen? What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, Coax or RCA?

If you're not getting an error message what type of cable are you using? If it's a Coax Cable, you will want to make sure the TV is on channel 3 or 4. If you're using an RCA Cable, you will need to check the Input channel.

My VIP722 DVr keeps showing that I have a complete loss of signal. This goes for awhile and can receive no HD channels. By going to DVR I can then go to guide and get SD channels only. But then after...

Hello this is Nick Franta with DISH Network.

What error message are you receiving on your screen? There should be a 3 digit number in the top right of the message. Has there been any bad weather in the area which may have affected the signal?

If you haven't been advised to already, I would suggest doing a hard reset of the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds. When you plug it back in the receiver will reboot itself for you. If you are still getting errors hit the menu button then 6-system setup, 1-installation, 1-point dish, and then hit check switch and then test. All your satellites should show green. If not we would need to send a tech out to address the issue.

Hope this helps!

I have 2 Tivo HD XL boxes with CableCards and I receive all channels one one box but am missing channels on the other box.

Missing channels are a sure sign that your CableCard is not paired correctly or is defective. Sometimes, the issue can be as simple as a clerical error, where the serial number of the CableCard was not entered correctly into your cable provider's system. Call your cable company and have a tech come out to take a look at your CableCard configuration.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr

The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD

As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def

Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

Off-air antenna volume issues

Make sure you have the correct audio settings set on the HR10. Go to messages and setup, settings, audio and play with the different settings and see if you can't get any audio to come on.

If you are able to get a dolby 5.1 audio signal through your receiver on another hd channel, then you should be getting and audio signal on your locals.

If you aren't able to get any dd 5.1 audio on hd channels, then I'd suggest (if you can) bypass the receiver and go directly to your tv (if it has speakers).

Sci Atlanta 8300 DVR HD sound in HD channels soft - analog channels OK

Experience has shown that with this relatively new mode of transmission, audio levels can be quite dynamic. If your set provides it, you may try turning on "Audio Compress" or whatever the name might be. Could also be called Dynamic audio also or some such. Reason for all the hubbub is that along with HD, mixing engineers are also providing the most range for the audio dynamics as well the most video composition info in the new broadcasts...Accordianman.
