Antena and direct tv is on one coax feed. Misplaced a splitter that I used before. No TV will receive the sat. signal. I can get it to receive antena feed but nothing from Satalite. Coax connection to TV not separate plugs for sound & vidio. Receiver will work in different location with plugs for sound and video. Different receiver will not work in this room.
Re: Used receiver at different location for 3 months.
Had repair man come. The coax connection going to TV from receiver had went bad in the receiver. The other connectors in box worked but not the coax anymore that is why the box worked on other TV since using video and sound cables. Got new box for signing up for another 18 months with Direct TV. Didn't have to have splitter to just get Satalite so that wasn't the problem at all. Any of the splitters I had would have worked.

If I understand your problem the Y splitter is a passive splitter which mean that the centre pins are connected via capacitors this will degrade the picture on one or both outlets, the Sky box should be connected via a scart or HDMI connection
The tuner on the LG TV may be right on "the hairy edge" of being able to receive that signal. Therefore the processor won't acknowledge and display it. You may want to try the LG on one of the other antenna feeds were the TVs DO display that channel. You might want to try the LG with no other sets hooked up. You may have a problem with any of the following. - staple through a wire - cracked lead-in wire or damaged coax - problem with a distribution amp/splitter.
Is there a set top cable box, or are you feeding the cable directly to your HDTV (coax directly to the TV). If you are feeding cable directly to the HDTV then you don't need HDMI. There maybe exceptions, but most TV's don't have HDMI output. The only thing you need to run from your TV to the Yamaha is an audio cable. I assume your HDTV has an optical audio out (either TOS or coax.... Your Yamaha will accept either). Connect the optical audio cable to the AV4 input on the Yamaha. This way when you hit the TV scene button on the Yamaha remote, it will select the AV4 audio input (the default for the TV scene). The optical cable will feed the full audio signal, so that the Yamaha can pass through the surround sound or use the decoder as appropriate to feed your 7.1 or 5.1 speaker system.
If you have a set top box, you may be better off moving that near the Yamaha. In this case, cable goes to settop box, output of set top box via HDMI or component video (RGB) and optical audio to the Yamaha (if you use HDMI Input 2, and AV4 for the optical audio (if necessary), the TV Scene will select the appropriate inputs) and then an HDMI to your HDTV.
In case one, you may need to setup the TV to process the audio appropriately. I have experience with Panasonic Plasma but thats about it.
We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. Theissue that you are having sounds like it is affecting the TV that is closest toyour receiver; we call it your TV1. The first thing we want to ensure is thatall connected equipment is on. Check what type of cable is used to connect theTV to the receiver. If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver toTV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver hasa "TV CH 3/4 Out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel4, back if it is labeled "Home Distribution" (ViP Receiver):Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) toconnect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears; MostTVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source"button. We want to ensure that the TV and the receiver are connected properly,please visit this link to for more information:http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-receiver-totv. Once we havemade sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10 seconds thenplug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still not getting apicture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, usingsame cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If you get apicture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) forsome additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the other componentthen replace the cable that was used.
We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valuedDISH Network customer!

I should be channel 3 or 4. This assumes that this coax cable is coming out as a TV R.F. connection of a Dish Network Box (Satellite Receiver) intended for direct connection to an old fashioned NTSC (channels 2-13, 14-83, possibly even has cable channels depending on how old?) TV.
If this coax is the output of a coax going directly to the Satellite Dish or through what might might look to you like some kind of fancy splitter (called a Multi-Switch) the you WOULD NOT want to hook that to your old NTSC tv. The frequency is too high ... etc. etc... you would need Dish Box (as you call it) a.k.a. a Satellite receiver - with a good and active satellite card from your provider.
If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.
Your upstairs tv is connected via a coaxial cable and you can do a few things to get programming to the third room.
The first is to locate the wire that enters the upsairs room that currently has tv and insert a splitter by cutting the line to that room and running the out ports to the rooms and the in port to the other end of the wire that you cut. This will give you the same picture in both rooms.
If you have a system that does not use diplexers to backfeed the second TV you can backfeed the 3-4 cable going to the TV1 by cutting the line and adding a splitter with the inport running to the 3-4 port on the receiver and one of the out ports going to your tv1 and the other outport going into the UHF side of a diplexer. You will need to cut the Satellite feed into the back of the receiver on the back side of the seperator and connect the seperator to the SAT port of the diplexer. The IN/OUT port of the diplexer will connect to the end of the sat feed cable that goes to the wall plate. This will allow you to go into the attic of outside of the house and find the sat cable that feeds the TV one and break it there and put the IN/OUT port of that diplexer facing the TV1 room and the SAT port connecting to the other end of the cable you broke. The remaining UHF port will be the feed for the new room that you wish to connect. This set up will allow for viewing the same program as that at the TV1 location however you will need to change the channels at the TV1 location or buy an IR to UHF converter to allow you to be able to work the system independently from the receiver.
