How do I set the correct input channel for S-video from laptop
I have a 48" Mitsubishi projection TV, model #48311. I need to use the S-video cable input on the front of the set to connect to my Compaq laptop computer, in order to display a PowerPoint presentation. It appears from reading the TV owner's guide that the front input is referred to as Input 3. I have used the menu system to "turn on" Input 3 as far as I know, by selecting one of the various names. (The TV menu shows a variety of input names, such as AUX, DVD, etc.) I have tried several of them, with no luck.

If you're sure everything is connected correctly check your tv input, there is a special input channel for each cable. FOR TV1: RCA: input 1,input2,video 1,video2, if you're using a coax cable: channel 3 or 4. If the problem is on TV 2 you're using a coax cable and it has to be on channel 60 or 73. For a wiring diagram you can visit the official dish website (it's on your bill) & visit the technical support page. This link is for tv1, you will also find the steps for tv2 Black Blue Or Snowy Screen TV1
Hi there, my name is Kimberly and I form part od the Social Media Department with DISH. If you are at TV1, where the receiver box is located, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cable that is running between the receiver and the tv, the tv may need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2 (Our remote will not always work to change the input on your tv. We recommend that you use the original remote that came with the TV at the time of purchse or the Input/Source button on the TV itself). If you are at the TV2 location, where there is no receiver, then the tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73.
If you are using an HDMI cable, then the TV will need to be on an HDMI input
If you are using Component cables, your TV will need to be on a component input. (Usually Comp 1 or 2)
If you are using RCA cables, then the TV will need to be on a VIDEO input (Usually Video 1 or 2)
If you are using COAX cables, then the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 (If you are at TV2, then the TV needs to be on channel 60 or 73)

To whom it may concern,
As a technician whom has been in the field for nearly a decade, my suggestion is to contact Dish Network customer service and set up a technician visit.. I know that there are far too many variables that could influence my answer and how I structure it, likely leading to more issues.
its not always going to be channel 3, it depends on the input cable you are using, if you are using an HDMI cable you need to switch to the hdmi input, same with component, and if you are using RCA cables it will probably be called video. Try your other inputs dont just stop at channel 3. If you are using coax and its supposed to be on channel 3, make sure you are on the correct coax jack on the receiver, make sure its the "to tv" jack not the "to wall" jack.
If you're referring to your xfinity tv receiver (the cable box) there's a few different ways. Please keep in mind without much information, it's difficult to give a 100% direct answer.
There are four ways to connect it. We'll start with what will give you the best video quality, going to the worst.
HDMI cable: A single cable with a flat end. Your TV and receiver will have port labeled "HDMI". You plug it in, and then use your tv remote to set it to the HDMI channel. You may have source or input button on the remote. Press that, and a list of options will appear on your tv. Select HDMI. If there is more than one HDMI (as in HDMI1, HDMI2) try each one until you get a picture.
Component cable: A cable with 5 ends. They're color coded, so match up the colors. Then try that input our source button to select the COMPONENT option on your tv.
RCA cable: A cable with three ends. Color coded. Follow the same directions as above in regards to the correct "channel" to put it on.
Coax: A single cable, an end that screws in. Its connector will look like something can be screwed on it, with a hole in the middle for the pin to go into. Connect it, then tune your tv to channel 3 or 4.
Hi, I am sorry you are having a problem with your DISH video. A blue screen means you are on the correct channel or input on your TV. If you turn the Tv off and then back on, ehat channel ot input does it say it is on. You should be on channel 3 if at TV1 or 60 or 73 if at TV2. If the receiver is connected to the TV using the Red/ White/Yellow cables, then the TV needs to be set to a video input. If you any additional assistance, please email me directly. Thank you!

The TV is not on the correct input setting or channel. Depending on your TV model and the receiver, you have a cable coming from the receiver to the TV. That cable could be a coax (screws in), RCA (yellow, white, red tips), component (green, blue, red, white, red tips), or HDMI cable. For all cables except the coax, the TV should be on an input setting. With your TV remote, you should have a source, input, or TV/Video button. Press that button and it should bring up a list of input settings. Each time you press that button it will scroll you down the list. Try each setting until you find the picture. I hope this helps.
The static you are getting on your TV is because the TV is not on the correct channel or input setting. With the 311 receiver, there is either a coax or an RCA cable (yellow, white, red) going from the receiver to the TV. If you have a coax cable, the TV should be on channel 3 or 4 (usually channel 3). With the RCA cable, the TV should be on an input setting. You'll need to go through your input settings until you find the picture. Of course your DISH receiver needs to be powered on. I hope this helps.
Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal. Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly. This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs. I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.
Hope this helps. Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.
