Bunches. Cable boxes don't receive per se. They unscramble a TV signal that the cable company puts on the cable. A satellite receiver takes a hi frequency RF signal that it recovers from the antenna(dish and electronics) converts it to a lower frequency. It then demodulates the signal and processes the audio and video components so you can see and hear the program.

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

Splitting a satellite signal to 2 tvs


Do you want to use a separate satellite receiver on each tv or just want to send the picture from one receiver to two tv's? It makes a huge difference. If you do it wrong you can damage both the satellite receiver and the tv, so be careful. Using separate receivers requires a multi switch near the dish. This is necessary because the satellite receiver sends a voltage up to the dish to operate the elecrtonics there. That voltage will damage the dish without that multi switch installed. an ordinary splitter will get the picture from one receiver to two or more tv's as long as the cable length is not too long.

My blu ray and regular DVD player have sound coming through the tv, but the tv itself on a regular chanel like ESPN, there is no sound. This is a Mitsubishi 73" DLP.


You have completed the proper troubleshooting, and by process of elimination you have determined that there is nothing wrong with your television's sound. The problem lies in cable. The next troubleshooting steps depend upon how you receive your cable channels. If you have a cable box (or a satellite receiver) you may just need to unplug it for 30 seconds to reboot it (or follow the instructions from a cable/satellite company representative on how to properly reboot your particular cable box/satellite receiver model). Also commonly the cable box/satellite receiver is not set to output audio properly. If you are connecting it to the television with an hdmi cable the audio output must be set to hdmi. Also there may be a setting pcm or bitstream. The cable box audio setting normally would have to be changed to pcm.The problem may be with the cable box/satellite receiver itself needing to be replaced or the cable cord connecting it to the television may need to be replaced. It is less likely that the television has a setting the one source input the cable box/satellite receiver is connected to that would affect the sound but confirm that there is or isn't. Last there may be something wrong with the source input you have the cable box/satellite tv receiver connected to.

If you do not have a cable box/satellite tv receiver then rescan your channels, try a different cable cord, and check with the cable company to make sure there is no internal issue at the moment.

How do you change the 480i to the 720p using the remote


That isn't how resolution works. The resolution is changed in the cable box or satellite tv receiver. The television automatically displays the resolution once it has been changed on the cable box or satellite tv receiver. If you are on input tv on the Sharp television then it will not display any other resolution besides 480i if you have a cable box or satellite tv receiver. If you are not connected to a cable box or satellite tv receiver and you are on input tv then the resolution will differ from channel to channel.

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...


You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

I have a 625 dual tuner from Dish. When I do a check switch it shows that I have signals on both satellites on tuner 1 but tuner 2 has none. When I disconnect the cables from the receiver and reconnect...


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service, I will be happy to assist with this. This receiver needs to have a Separator (splitter) that has one coax cable coming from the Satellite into the single side and then two cables out, which connect to the receiver box. The Separator is marked with a SAT1 & SAT2. They will connect up to SAT1 & SAT2 on the receiver box itself. If you are using a different typr splitter, it is probably not rated for the splitting of the Satellite feed. I hope this helps you, if not feel free to contact me.

Cant get my check swith to show satellite


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. If you are not getting satellite signal, the problem can several different things, but here are a few things you can try. First, try a hard reset. To do a hard reset, you unplug the receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds then plug it back in. The next step would be double checking you satellite cable. On the back of the receiver there should be a cable connected where it says "Satellite in", make sure this cable is secured from the receiver to the wall. After you do these steps, try running a check switch test (menu-6-1-1-check switch-test). If you are still not receiving satellite signal, a technician will be needed at the home to fix the issue. If this has not been resolved, please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com.

Can i get fm signal from a satellite dish we no longer use? This is still attached to the roof. I would like to use that coaxial cable from the dish and connect to my receiver.


No, you won't get significant signal in the FM spectrum from your satellite LNB coax. The dish is tuned to pick up signals of a very different frequency, and aimed to reject any signals not coming from a very specific direction -- up where the satellites are.

For FM, you need to receive signals from ground-based transmitters, in a different frequency range.

That said, you can totally use the coax to bring signals from your rooftop down to your stereo. To do this, you'd need to get up on the roof, disconnect the coax from your satellite dish and attach it to an FM antenna.

Best of luck!
