Re: 3 rooms with dish works on 2 on 3rd i get no sync
This problem could be caused by a weak signal amplifier in the tuner section of the Television. You can try putting the television in a location where it will receive a stronger signal from the Dish. Closer to the source of the signal. You can also try getting a signal amplifier to increase the signal strength to the television tuner.These amplifiers are usually sold at the local electronics stores like Fry's or the Micro Center. You can call the stores and ask them if they have signal amplifiers for cable and satellite signals. You can also find them on line by using the search engines looking for signal amplifiers for cable and satellite signals. If all this fails to solve your problem, Call the Insignia customer support at this telephone number 1-877-467-4289. Tell them the model number of you television and the problem you are having with the loss of signal reception. They should be able to tell you how to resolve the problem. The customer support website is www.insignia-products.com. you can use the customer support section here also to explain your problems. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.
Hey there, this is Cheri Torres with DISH Network customerservice. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could be of someassistance. I do have few questions about your system that would help me togive you a better answer on what you will need to do to resolve this issue. Iwould first like to know what type of DISH Network receiver you have; youshould be able to find the model number on the front left side of your receiverbox. Is the type of receiver you have a dual receiver (plays two TVs from onereceiver)? Did you also move the receiver into a different room along with yourTV? If you are working with TV1 (the TV that is in the same room as yourreceiver) you are going to want to make sure your TV is either on channel 3 or4, or that it needs to be on a input (i.e. video 1, video 2, input 3 etc.). Youcan usually determine this by checking which type of cables you have. If youhave coax cables (black cable with silver end that you can screw into the TV)the TV will need to be set to channel 3/4. If the cables are RCA cables (yellow,white and red) or a HDMI cable (black cable with thin end) the TV will need tobe set on an input. For TV2 the second TV off of your receiver which should neverbe in the same room as the receiver the channel should be set for either 60 or73. I hope you find this information useful and if you are able to answer thequestions I would be able to help you a lot more with this issue. Feel free topost back here with a response or you can also email me atCheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com. :)
This has hopefully been resolved for you, but if not, here are some steps to go through. The black box that comes on the screen is usually signaling that closed Captioning is activated on the tv. Closed captioning does not run through the DISH Network receivers, so you can turn that feature off in your tv settings. The fuzzy picture could be a few things. You will want to check that all of your cables on the back of the receiver box and tv are tight as possible, and also make sure that the tv is on the correct channel. If you are in the room with the receiver, the tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and sometimes an input; usually video 1 or 2. If you are in a number two room, where there is no receiver, than you want to make sure that the tv is on channel 60 or 73. I hope that this helps!!!!!
Rescan all the channels?Hook the tv and the satalite signal cable in the tv and dish network box correctly check?Go to tv menu.Goto SETUP,pick CH. pick option CABLE enter to rescan all channels.This should have all the channels,belong to the package u order.
The static you are getting on your TV is because the TV is not on the correct channel or input setting. With the 311 receiver, there is either a coax or an RCA cable (yellow, white, red) going from the receiver to the TV. If you have a coax cable, the TV should be on channel 3 or 4 (usually channel 3). With the RCA cable, the TV should be on an input setting. You'll need to go through your input settings until you find the picture. Of course your DISH receiver needs to be powered on. I hope this helps.
I will assume it was installed to two rooms when installed otherwise it will need to be wired to the second TV.
If it was indeed installed to two TVs at the first tv location with the TV1 remote press MENU-6-1-5. You should now be at the modulator set up screen. Note what channel TV2 is modulated to generally 60 air or 73 cable.
Now go to the TV2 location and run a cannel search. If it does not find the channel go back to tv 1 and change the TV channel to the opposite setting of air or cable based on what it was previously set to and try the channel scan at TV2 again.
If it still does not pick it up then most likely it is not wired for that room. If the receiver was installed to one location Dish will need to wire the second location for you in order to achieve the desired outcome.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a valued Dish Network customer.
Make sure the cable you now have hooked up to TV is actually hooked up to the dish. If you're sure it is then take the TV back to original location and hook it back up. If it works in that location you have a bad cable. If it still doesn't work it's the TV. The only other thing I can suggest is that some TV's must autotune before a picture can be shown. If you're sure you have a ggod signal go to the TV menu and do an auto tune or auto search. The TV will then go thru all the different possibilities looking for signals. Once it has completed the search it will then give you a picture. You can then go and add/delete channels and set it up however you want.
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. Hope this answered your question. IF you need further assistance please contact me and thanks for using Fix Ya.
You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote.
Hope this helps!
