Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a mitsubishi HD1080 Ser.#Wf65809 It has worked fine until this week when DirectTV hooked-up their satellite dish and programmed the tv. When the tv is turned-on e the picture is great for about 6-7 seconds - then a large rectangular grey shadow comes on and makes it difficult to see the picture. There have been 3-4 Direct-TV techs scratching their heads over this and no-one can come up with a solution. When it is in the menu-mode there is no shadow. The tech who is running diagnostics etc. thinks there is someting in the mitsubishi that is blocking the signal. Any thoughts?

It may be an internal filter on the tuner board or in the cable line. Otherwise it may be a firmware problem that is causing this. Make sure tv is set for CABLE and not AIR

Pixelation appears. What could be the problem with the set?


I have had the same problem at times. First try out a dvd or Blu Ray disc to see if you experience the same problem. Also check your connections to make sure they are connected properly.

If the problem is not present when playing a disc then check out your Directtv system. Try resetting your Directtv reciever first. If that doesn't work, check with Directtv to see if they can run diagnostics. It might be your satellite dish or the receiver.

Get dish network to work with hp SR5505F COMPAQ PRESARIO COMPUTER


You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

Want to use just one remote!


This really is a question that Kenwood would have to answer and their phone number is 1-800-536-9663. Some remotes will communicate with the dish receiver but there are far to many manufacturers for me to be able to tell you who they are and their codes. It is much better if you go directly to the source yourself.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.

Copying recorded footage from the DWD490RE without DirectTV Service.


Make sure the cables that used to run from the satellite are still connected even though u dont have directv, the unit will still download any software updates it needs. if the dish is no longer available, wait until the dvr is trying to aquire satellite info before u hit the menu button. it will allow u to watch saved recordings while it searches for a signal. Also you can plug a dvd recorder to the unit and transfer recordings to dvd

HD Hookup on Dish Network 2nd Location


In order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.

Lost my picture when went to pip


Check your PIP source. I couldnt figure out my LCD pip, and why it wasnt working either until I was able to switch the source. It was automatically using a source that didnt have anything hooked up to, I had to switch mine in order for it to work. Try that and see if that might be the case. let me know. thanks!
