Is this a tv2 off of the primary reciver from another room?

If so there is a 2 step process to help you fox this.

Generally yes it is 60 or 73 but some installers do change it.

If it is on 60 The it will be on 60 AIR not 60 CABLE , if it is on 73 then is will be on 73 CABLE not 73 AIR..

To simplify this for you go into your tv's menu and select your air/cable type to air and have the tv do a channel scan. once complete use your remote and go up and down the channels in air mode it may find more than one. check and see if any of them are your dish box. If not then go back into the tv menu and select your air/cable setting to cable and repeat a channel scan. again once complete use the tv remote to go up and down channels untill you locate your dish box. If you do both of these and still do not have your signal verify that there is no VCR or DVD player "ON" at that location. They can be hooked up, just not on. Also some tv's have an antenna A and antenna B on the back of them , if your does make sure you test with both antenna connections. If you go thru all of this and still cannot get a signal then a line may have gotten cut or dissconnected and they need to send a tech out.

I accidently changed my tv channel i have dish how do i get my dish back


Meshell Coles,

I would be happy to help get this fixed! If the TV is connected via a Coax cable, try changing it to 3 or 4 if TV1. If it is TV2 try 60 or 73. If the receiver is connected via a RCA (Red, Yellow, White) cable, HDMI cable, or Component (YPbPr), make sure the receiver is on the correct input.

If you have any other questions, just let me know!

When I change the channel on tv2, it also changes the channel on tv1. I have changed the address for tv2's remote, but it still changes tv1's channel.


Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see your TV2 changes TV1 as well, thereis an easy fix to this problem. You will want to make sure the receiver is inDual Mode and then make sure the TV2 connection on the back of the receiver isin the right port.

When I change the channel on one tv, it also changes the channel on the other tv.


Hello this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. When both TV's are showing the same thing, normally the receiver is in "Single Mode". You can confirm this by looking at the front of your receiver and seeing what the orange light is under. If it is indeed in single mode, you can press the "Mode" button on the front of the receiver, which should allow you to watch separate programs on both TV's. If that does not correct it, the next step is to double check cabling. Proper cabling diagrams can be found at tech.dishnetwork.com. If you are still having this issue, please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com and I will make sure we get this issue resolved.

Satalite dish


i don't think they sell stuff on this website, but if you are looking for a good deal go by some of your local satellite dealers and ask if they have any used dishes they would sell cheap. the thing to do is to go to a place that sells dishnetwork ( or direct if you need a dishnetwork dish) because many times when an installer goes out to install a system there is already a dish from the other network there. often the customer doesn't want the old dish anyway and we end up taking home the old dish. personally, i just give an old one to anybody that needs one.

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?


if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.
