Hi Lylell, Your LG Studioworks 221U Monitor's input uses either a D-Sub which is a standard 15 pin vga cable or a 13W3C cable which is for cad workstations. On the other hand the output of your Dish Network receiver is either RCA-type audio/video or an S-video output. Since all are not directly compatible you would need something in between and not just cables. Technically what you need is to convert composite video output to d-sub 15 pin video input. A fine example is COMP2VGA by originally designed for gamers. There are some in the market that are simple connector to connector such as in, please don't bother since it has been known not to work. To complete the setup, you would need a stereo amp/speaker pair for the audio out of your receiver. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

I own an insignia 42"

The TV resolution is set by the video sources, not at the TV, in this case, your Dish network box is the one that is sending out 480p so the TV will display what it is being fed with.
What does Dish TV say aboyt this problem? How about the setup menu on the Dish network box?
Your TV works the same as your PC monitor, except that your monitor does not have a tuner, you adjust the resolution at the PC not at the monitor. 480p in = 480p display.

Please leave rating if it helps.

I am getting black borders top & bottom on some channels and side to side as well on Fox on my Dish Net receiver 322 to analog TV.

Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here. The black borders are usually caused by watching standard definition programming on a high definition television. Try to change the format on your tv. Either by pressing the * button below the 7, or trying a format or display button on the original tv remote. Hope this helps!!!

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other

Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.

We would be happy to help you with this. Pressing either the "Cancel" or the "View Live TV" button located on the right side of your DISH Network remote should take you out of the programming guide. You also mentioned that the programming guide displays no data; unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in. By resetting the receiver this was it will prompt it to update the programming guide information.

We hope this helps in getting things set up the way you want it. Thanks for choosing DISH Network!

Can I watch TV (Dish TV) on my Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP ?

No. Monitors are different from TV's and are not able to connect directly to a Dish receiver. The frequencies the monitor uses are different that a TV. You can get video from a PC into a TV but not vice versa. You can use the second UHF output from the VIP 722 to connect an older TV without a digital tuner in it to that port. It will come out on channel 73 and will not be Hi def. You'll need to use the remote with the #2 on it to operate the receiver
