SOURCE: Hi. I need help finding 119!

I looks like you are picking 110W with the LNB on your left if you are facing the dish.
Try to get 119W first if you connect the cable to the 119 LNB, once you find 119W that way, you will also have 110W.
Good Luck.

DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,

SOURCE: New TV hookup

I have a ViP 722. It has no rf output for TV1, just the hookup for TV2. The multi RCA hookup for HD. HD is not as important to me as is a clean picture and audio on my TV. No matter how I do it, I get a 60hz hum - low volume - but still annoying. I have reverted to my original sd receiver/DVR to eliminate this hum.

My system includes: digital cable programming with TIVO; Dish sd Receiver/DVR, a Panasonic DVD/VCR tuner/player/recorder.

When I series all my outputs via RF coax from the TIVO to the Dish receiver/dvr to my DVD/VCR tuner/player/recorder to my TV there is no hum. When I introduce connections via RCA video/audioLR I get hum. Without the Dish receiver in my system operating with just digital cable, TIVO, and my DVD/VCR tuner/player/recorder I connect it any way I wish; through RCA out/in or rf out/in.

I can also remove my DVD/VCR tuner/player/recorder and connect any which way.

I personally would prefer to eliminate HD and stay with standard definition than to eliminate my DVD machine but the lack of an RF output on the ViP722 seems to prevent that without removing my TV2.

Any solutions out there?

Hello! My name is Becki Barned, and I am from Dish Network customer service. The problem that you are having is simple to fix. Although your remote works for the volume, and power, it is not working for the satellite. It does need to be reprogrammed. Just take it to tv1. With your tv1 remote, press the menu button twice. Then with the tv2 non-working remote, hold down the SAT button until all the mode lights light up at the top, then release. Then press the #9 on the remote keypad, then the pound (#) button, then record (above the number 3 on the keypad) 3 times. This should resolve your issue!!! If not, you can blog back, or find us on Twitter!!!!

    Hi bevybab!

    I would need more information as to which TV (1 or 2) you're experiencing the problem with, but if this is a new TV it sounds like you may need to change the modulator setup.

    You can find the setting under Menu -> System Setup -> Installation -> Modulator Setup. If this is TV1, change the TV 1 Out to channel 3 or 4 depending on what you have listed. If this is TV2; change the mode from air to cable or cable to air and then put the TV on the channel it shows after selecting done to save the settings.

    If you can provide more information or have any other questions let me know!

    Join dish1000.2 with dish322receiver

    Hi nganhoang54,

    A 1000.2 dish is mainly used on HD equipment to bring in the 3 satellites required. For a 322, the best choice of dish would be a Dish 500.

    To hookup a 1000.2 dish, you would need to point the dish, and run the line into a Diplexor. From the Diplexor side with one connection, run another cable into the single connection of another Diplexor, and from there one cable into a splitter for the Sat In connections. Take the TV2 Home Distribution cable and put it into the other port on the Diplexor, and connect TV2 from the open port on your first Diplexor.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I have the dish network box which is HD although I can get a video feed on the television I get no audio

    The first step you want to try is unplugging the receiver for ten seconds. After that check the cabling if you have component cables (red, blue, green, red, white) make sure the red and white are connected firmly. Also make sure they are connected right next to the red blue and green cables on the back of the TV. If you have an HDMI cable try connecting it to another port on the back of the TV. If that fails try replacing the cable.

    Hey my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see there is a problem with the Sony hometheater system connecting with the DISH receiver. To get the full surroundsound you want there are two different options you can use, the first is to usethe HDMI and connect the RCA cable or you can use the Optical cable for sound.If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me back;

    HDMI 1 imput keeps jumping to TV input

    I assume you are connecting a Dish Network receiver (model?) to your Sony TV with an HDMI cable. I also assume this happens daily. At a certain time (default 3AM but changeable) the Dish receiver (modern models) will reboot and the "screensaver" it normally outputs will be turned off for a minute or so. Some TVs, in obeying the rules for high definition connection (HDCP) will unlink their connection. Some are fussier than others and some will not automatically recover on power up. Since the Dish receiver must reboot to maintain its stability and then refresh its guide, you should be able to do this if the TV is turned off overnight.
    If you still cannot get the connection maintained, I recommend that you connect with component cables--RGB+RW cables (the red-Y, the green Y=luminance, and blue-Y signals and audio right and left.) You may have to select a different input before turning the TV off, or maybe just changing source input will recover the one you want. I have no problems with my VIP722 receiver and my Samsung DLP TV. You might be able to get some more specific advice from the message board for you TV.

    HDTV Converter hookup with sat. and antenna

    Hi there Phil...... this switch from analog to digital has lots of folks scratching their heads. Fortunately I have some great news for you. The signal coming from the Dish network does not need a converter as it is already digital.

    Dish network box hookup question.

    Are you sure that the antenna in isn't threaded? You may be looking at the wrong jack... All antenna inputs are threaded co-axial "F" connectors. If you ARE sure, could you post a pic of the back panel?
