Hooking up my x-box 360 through Direct TV

I recently had direct tv installed and now I would like to use my x-box 360 through the Satellite receiver. Right now I have to unplug the sattelite from the tv and plug in the x-box every time I want to use it. I've tried plugging the x-box into the Satelite with the red yellow and white connectors but that isn't working either. I want to switch back and forth without having to get up and unhook everything. Please Help!

I hooked my tv to my direct tv cable box and it keeps displaying no signal. Also, my remote control doesn't work.


Try hooking it to another tv and see if it works then, if not then it's not your tv but your satellite system cable not connected inside or outside, or your dish is not pointed n the right direction

Digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver


I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

Prior to the recent installation of Direct TV I was with DISH. I switched to Direct when Dish attempted to charge me for a new full package cost because I wanted to re-activate a Dish receiver which I had...


After it is hooked up, it should have a white screen saying "searching for satellite signal." After fifteen or twenty minutes, it will go to a black screen saying the same thing in a blue box. Once you are there, you can prerss the LIST button on the remote and record and copy your selected shows. This is assuming you have a newer DVR. Model R15 or higher. thanks keep updated

I can't get past the ''searching for Sattellite'' display


Doublecheck your connections. The connection from the dish should be on "Satellite in", NOT "In from antenna." That is the most common mistake that is made.

Off air with SIR TS160


Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
Good Luck
Ted
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.
