I have rca cables running thru the walls to my TV set over the fire wall. My TV received the pictures from a Directv HD-DVR and for some reason is loosing the signal, I do not know if is the distance the cables run from the closet to the TV set or any other interference. The TV screen black out every 5 minutes for a second and then the picture comes back up.

This sounds like it could be an issue with the drop located on the outside of the house where the signal come in from the pole. typically if the drop is old or weathered or if the cables inside the house are old the audio and visual with cut in and out. typically a good resolve without spending a lot of money is to call your tv provider and ask for a wire maintenance program and details should be under a 10 dollar charge per month. after setting up the wire maintenance ask if they can send a technician out to check the signal and the drop. this will save you the 45+$ an hour and after they find a solution you can cancel the wire maintenance and will no longer have to pay the additional fee's every month.
hope this fixya

To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.

You may be able the settings of your directTV box to stop frustrating you. If you help me identify the model you are using, I can research the proper menu choices you will need to choose to select the correct features. There are many different directTV set-top boxes available.

My own home theater setup did the same thing, and my solution was to use component cables from the PVR instead of HDMI cables. It is too bad your blu-ray doesn't allow for this configuration.

My work-around until I realized that using different interconnects fixed the problem, was to turn the TV off and then on again whenever switching from HD to non-HD sources. This fixed my problem, maybe it will fix yours.

I hope that helps.

I am having connection issues with an LG 55lh40 television, a HD DVR from Directv, a PS3 and a DVD/VCR combo. The TV seems to be working good, but does not seem to be picking up an HDMI cable of any kind....


No picture
when connecting HDMI:
Check HDMI cable over version 1.3.
The HDMI cables don’t support HDMI version 1.3, it cause flickers or no screen
display. In this case use the latest cables that support HDMI version 1.3.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.

Wrong aspect ratio!


It was the zoom !! I lost the tv remote, I went to Radio Shack for a Universal remote and they didn't have one with a Zoom button,
The tv menu doesn't have a Zoom button either...Finally found one that works and all is WELL! Depending on what the tv station transmits, the screen size changes in the auto-matic selection in the menu.

Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)


Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.
