How does on fix the tv so that it works properly.
By this I mean, we have both cable and satellite dish.
The cable is hooked into the back, and when the tv is on, the channels do not change. However, when the satellite is hooked up, and you toggle to front port, or other input, it has no problems recognizing the signal
My guess is the tunner, is not recognizing the signal, and is only on channel three, and that's the only cable channel that will come through.
How does on fix the problem?

When we see the No Signal message moving around our TV screen it means our cable TV service is not available. If you have a satellite dish for your TV, the "No Signal" also probably means there is no service.
If yours is cable TV service, if you have not already done so, I suggest you pick up your phone and make a call to the number for your cable TV and ask to be connected to a technical service representative. You will probably need to have your cable account number and other ID handy when you make the call.
If yours is satellite dish service, again, call the TV service number. If you reside where there have been strong storm winds, the reception dish may have been blown out of alignment and it will need to be set back in the proper direction for signal pick up.
Typically there will be a single line of Coax (TV Cable) running from your dish to your receiver. There will be a connection on the back of your receiver with a little picture of a dish. It might also be labeled LNBF or LNB. Make sure the power to your receiver is unplugged before connecting it. If you have more than one cable coming from the dish, or I've misunderstood, you may need to provide more information such as what cables, and what model of reciever.
Most TVs don't have a built-in satellite receiver. You'll need to buy and install a suitable satellite receiver box for the signals that your dish is capable of receiving. The dish connects to the satellite receiver. Then the sat receiver connects to the TV via either AV cables or HDMI. Hope this helps.
I really need to know the model number of your Insignia TV and which connections you are using between the Dish box and the TV to give you the correct answer. If you are connecting both cable and satellite, I believe it should be set-up as follows:
1. Connect cable feed to TV
2. Run auto channel scan on "cable" setting
3. Connect Dish box to TV and then try changing the "input" selection.
With the Dish box switched on to a channel number you know, try pressing the "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button on your Insignia TV remote repeatedly until you find the satellite feed. Once you have done so, you should be able to change satellite channels using the Dish remote.
If you need further assistance, please post back with the model number of your TV and details of the connections you are using on the back of the TV.
In the USA broadcasts are not analog any longer they are digital. So if you have an antenna hooked up to your TV you will need a digital converter hooked up to your input wire (from antenna) and then an output from the converter to the TV. Most satellite and cable companies use RG56 cable which will work fine with an antenna set up as well, so cabling should not be a problem. Make sure you set your TV mode (input or source) to the proper input where you have hooked up the cable to the TV as well. It is unimportant which input you use, but the TV has to have it set to the same one. If you are outside of the USA, the above should be the same because broadcast over the air and antennas set ups are universally the same in nature and design. I hope this helps and good luck!
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.
The TV is working, the message is coming from the dish box. What you need to do is to determine if the dish box is connected to the dish and that it has signal at the box, because the message it is delivering to the TV is that it is not receiving signal from the satellite. so you have to check the connection at the satellite and at the box because those are the only point that can generate the error you are getting.
I hope this helps,
