I have dish network and am trying to watch tv on my gateway plasma. how do i connect my satelite cable to plasma to get picture?
We would like to guide you through the connection process,but depending on what kind of receiver and TV you have this process may vary.Visit our "How to connect receiver" page here:http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-receiver.
Once we have everything connected correctly, check what channel or input yourTV is currently on by powering the TV off then back on and noting the channelor input that appears on screen when the TV is powered on.
Steps for getting picture on TV1:
If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check thereceiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TVCH 3/4 out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel4, if it has "Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver):Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA,Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs untilpicture appears (this information may appear on the remote sticker), mostTVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source" button.
Steps for getting picture on TV2:
Access "Modulator Setup" from TV1 by pressing "menu"then 6-1-5. Tune TV2 to the channel that appears under "TV2 Out" onscreen. If still no picture, change the "TV2 Out" mode fromAir to Cable, or if it's already on Cable, change it to Air. Then change thechannel of TV2 to what is now displayed under "TV2 Out".
If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for10 seconds and plug back in. It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset processto be completed. If you still are not getting a picture, connect anothercomponent (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, using same cable, same input,and same channel to see if it works. If it works give us a call at1-800-333-DISH (3474) for additional troubleshooting, if you don't get apicture with the other component, replace the cable.
Hope this steps help, and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!
