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.
Connect as following
1. Set top box - RF cable from STB to antenna socket on TV.
2. DVD player output to Video1 on TV
3. VCR output to Video2 on TV.
May be you can route VCR through the DVD player or viceversa. That you can see and try on ground.
you will have some line loss (decreased audio signal) at the stereo
you may pick up strange noises, as the 50 foot wires are antennas that will pick up stray signals if they are present
try it, then you will be the expert, as you are in 'uncharted waters'
Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.
I was able to connect to my cable box. I used RCA (yellow, red, white) cabling. I connected the Video Out on the cable box to the Video In on the DVD/VC (to the DVD VCR cabling section). I then from same section used the Video Out using RCA Cabling to the the Video In connectors on my Phillips LCD TV. That left only to connect the TV to the cable box using regular TV coax cable. Everything works, although I am going nuts trying to dub from VCR to DVD-R or +R discs.
Hi, You use the video and audio 'out' from your cable box to the 'in' on your Vr357. You can use s-video, component video cables or the av cables that came with it. You can use your HDMI cable from the VR 357 to your television. That will be for upconvert DVD watching. The cable box connection will still go from the box into your television. Hope that helps.
I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck. Dawn
