A Magnavox DTV TB110MWG was hooked up through an amplified antenna and the DTV burned up. Was the DTV defective or is this hookup not possible?

If the input of the tb110mwg was "overdriven" like though an external amplifier; then it IS possible to burn up the receiver.

More than likely you just bought a bad unit. Then again, I would not try to amplify the input signal to the Magnavox unit. This is just not a good idea.

Accidently blew away recorded events, can they be restored?


mike wendt,

Once an event is deleted, we do not have a way to restore it. Since you have a ViP 722 I would recommend hooking up an EHD to the receiver. The external hard drive will allow you to backup recordings, and also provide additional space so you can hold more.

If you have any questions about hooking up an EHD let me know! This link http://www.mydish.com/support/use-ehd can provide more information!

Hey Jeff Koons, it sounds like it might be an interference issue if it works occasionally.

Check the remote antenna on the back of the receiver; if it is standing up right try turning it to be parallel with the receiver. If it is parallel turn it to be standing up right and see if the problems fixed.

If the problem persists after that verify good batteries. If this is TV1; look for possible light or heat interferences, and if this is TV2 check components near the receiver and see if they're causing interference or even try pig tailing the antenna by hooking up a coax to the antenna and moving the antenna way from the receiver.

Let me know if the problem continues after that. You can reach me directly here or at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com.

My itv channels keep breaking up or freezing since the switchover


I'm guessing the signal from the antenna is too weak. With digital, it will not get fuzzy as with analog, but rather will pixelate, go blank, or freeze. You need to figure out how to get more signal to the TV by moving or re-aiming the antenna, improving the connections (clean or repair), or amplifying the signal.

After installing the receiver box I can only get some of the channels. CH 7 is one that I cannot get and I used to get it all the time before installing the box?


In some situations, DTV signals can be more difficult to tune in. In your location you may need a larger antenna to tune in the digital channels. If you are using and indoor antenna, you may need to relocate the antenna near an outside wall or window or you may need an amplified antenna. If you are connected to and outdoor antenna, adjusting the direction it is aiming may help or in some cases you may need a larger antenna. Visit the AntennaWeb website (http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Welcome.aspx) for information about the stations you should be receiving and the type of antenna you need.

I can't get past the ''searching for Sattellite'' display


Doublecheck your connections. The connection from the dish should be on "Satellite in", NOT "In from antenna." That is the most common mistake that is made.

On the converter box that we hooked up we are geting every channel except 5-1 5-2


Any -1, -2 channles considered as a off-air antenna channels. I assume you have the off-air antenna and good reception on it. So make sure your off air antenna hooked up to your receiver.

If everything is hooked up right and your reception on antenna is good, try to trace the line for your antenna. may find any visual problems such as loosen up, dog chewed the cable etc :D

Last thing if you don't find solution by yourself is call your service provider for service call.

Good luck
