It depends on a couple factors. First of all, how many do you have connected already? Do you want to do it yourself or have Directv do it? It really isn't hard to do yourself and a little cheaper too. But if anything goes wrong, I dont think D* will fix it cheap. You have to have basic knowledge of the working of a satalite system, I.E. transponder settings and such. Answer those questions for me and I am sure I can help.

Television say check signal cable . I have a scientific atlanta cable box.What do I do?

How is the TV connected to the cable box (HDMI, component video, etc.)? Make sure that the cables are securely connected and that the TV is on the correct input. Try swapping the current cables for new ones. (The HDMI cable has come loose on my entertainment system at times.) If you route HDMI cables via a sound receiver (cable box -> receiver -> TV), try a direct connection to the TV.

For my TV, I have to turn on one set-top box before I turn on the TV to get the signals to correctly synchronize. (Try turning off everything connected to the TV and then turn on the accessories first. Then turn on the TV.) For another set-top box, it needs to be turned on before the TV. (So try both options.)

Make sure that your set-top box is on and try a different TV or input if possible. If a second TV doesn't work with the box, contact the provider and check for a service outage. (Also try a different set-top box (like a blu-ray player) to check if it is the input on the TV.)

Note: I've had mice or other things damage wiring; this takes out the cable and phone lines. If this is outside damage, your service provider should repair the damage for free.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your TV and the connections that you are using for additional support.

I do not know how to hook it up to Directv receiver or to my DVD

Hello Barbara,

I'm Joe, thank you very much for choosing FixYa for your technical support needs.

I would be pleased to provide whatever assistance you need with hooking up your Direct TV receiver to your TV, or with hooking up your DVD player to your TV.

In order to provide you with the proper specific detailed instructions, could you please COMMENT back here to this page and provide the exact model numbers of your TV, your DVD player, and your Direct TV receiver, since exact connection instructions can vary between different models.

Normally the model numbers are printed on a label on the back panel of each device.

You can use the POST A COMMENT button near the bottom of the screen to post this additional information and I will receive it right away. Then I can proceed to look up and provide you with the appropriate User Manuals for each device and also the necessary instructions to hook them up.

Thank you very much, I look forward to hearing back from you and assisting you further.

Pioneer PureVision 434CMX purchased from a friend who had it hooked up to a receiver, I just have it hooked directly into the cable box. Great picture, no sound.

The PureVision PDP-434CMX is a Plasma monitor. Speakers are not included in the unit (but were available as an add-on option). You will need to connect external speakers to the TV (soundbar or other type of speaker).

For additional information, see: . The direct link to the technical manual is . The available third party expansion products are listed here: .

I hope this helps.

Loss of all BBC programes during re-tune been done 3 times working the just vanish need to re-tune again Any advice This TV is not connected to Sky

This is impossible to answer without knowing which make and model of Freeview receiver you're using (or the make and model of TV if it's a built-in receiver).

In the meantime, check channels 800 to 810 as this is often where the missing channels get relocated to on some equipment which has a slight incompatibility with the recent retune. If that's where your channels have gone then you just have to live with it as it's a hardware limitation of the receiver chipset; the only cure is to buy a separate external Freeview box which often has the additional benefit of giving far better reception quality than most inbuilt receivers.

If this has answered your question then please return the favour by rating my answer; if not then please add a comment with the required additional details and I'll provide additional assistance.

Can't seem to add HD channels to Mitsubishi WS-65513

You need to run an external antenna feed to the air DTV input jack, bottom left. You can use your loop out if you already have an antenna connected to your antenna A input jack. Create a DTV device, then run your antenna setup for DTV.
