Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.
The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.
Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!
Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)
When you get "No Signal" flashing across your TV screen, it indicates that the input channel the TV is set on is not communicating with any device. Your receiver is plugged into a jack on the back of your TV. Trace the cable coming from the receiver to your TV and make a note of the port. Should be something like: AV 1, Comp 1, Video 1, HDMI 1 - something like that. Which ever port it is connected to, put your TV on that input setting and you will get your picture. I hope this helps.
Hi carltonmarcumy name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and for the TV2 you want the Modularset to cable and channel 73, and then make sure the TV itself is set to channel73. After you have the modular set to channel 73 and the TV set to channel 73and you do not see a DISH Network picture you will then make sure theconnections from the wall to the TV are tight as well as from the receiver tothe wall. Then you will want to unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug itback in it will power up and acquire the signal and once you see that check TV2and you should see the same thing on the screen. I will send a link that will helpout with these steps. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/black-blue-tv2
A distorted picture display soon after the Plasma TV is powered on has two indications. First, a picture display of pixels when the TV is powered on is usual prior to signals of video movies are acquired from broadcasting station. The movie from braodcasting station should display without noticeable objects of distractions. For example, the movie displeyed on the TV without obstructions is indication that the problem is from the display set. Alternately, movies with poor capability to display on the set is indication that the media from which motion pictures are acquire from is malfucntioning. For example, a TV connected to cable network or disk network or satellite broadcasted signals with receptive compromises are diagnosable from two areas. First, a clarification from the network station that has setup connectivity of devices. Perhaps a device in the setup is malfucntioning. Second, attempting the adjust the phsical connections that are attached to the TV is capable of resoving the problem. Refer to the user guide for what is default expectation on powering on. Thereafter consul technical experts if required. Good luck
Are you getting a snowy/blue/black screen on your TV? To get your picture back, you need to get the TV back to the correct channel or input. If the receiver is in the same room as this TV, the TV should be on channel 3/4 (normally 3) or an input setting depending on the TV. TV 2 (away from receiver) would be on channel 60/73. If you have the TV remote, put the TV on one of those channels. If you get a picture when the TV is placed on the correct channel, press and release the SAT button. This puts the remote back in SAT mode and will now operate the receiver.
If you don't have a picture, unplug the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire Satellite signal. i hope this helps.
I saw your post and I'm wondering if you are still having problems getting a picture on your TV. Is it TV 1 or TV 2? What type TV is connected? If it's a HD TV, you will need to go through your input or source list on the TV to find your picture on TV 1. TV 2 is generally on either channel 60 or 73. I hope this helps.
Best call the cable or setalite companies for set up wirering,best no complication later,need a network hub box,for distrubution,have one box each tv for recieve the signal for each tv.Best have each box each tv deal with that box for that tv,no need worries the about the network hub box all the signals prob.
Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A MotorolaCable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some DishNetwork boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
You didn't say if you are receiving an off air picture or cable or satellite. The reason the commercials look good is because the local station (or source) transmits them "in the clear", that is, without any enhancements to the video signal. Network programing or local newscasts are sent through a device which inserts a reference signal in what's called the "vertical interval". You may have seen this as a series of flashing dots or pulses at the very top of the picture. There's a lot of information packed into the VITS (Vertcal Interval Test Signal). One of the lines contains a reference pulse for video which is set at a certain level. Your TV sees that level and automatically adjusts its circuitry accordingly. What I suspect is that your set is out of calibration and is pushing down the video signal because it is not "seeing" the level properly. A video alignment should correct this and can be done by a good repair facility. Hope this helps.
