Regular channels not working on satellite

  • hi, my name is donna, my dad has a regular rca satellite disk (its about 6 years old) he gets all of his channels on the satellite except the local channels, he says that he just gets a blank screen and a message saying regular scheduling. Do you know how he can get these channels to show? any help would be appreciated. He lives about 100 miles from me so I am communicating to him by phone

This could be a number of things... Maybe he is out of any programming areas, maybe his antenna is setup wrong, maybe there is signal interference, maybe there is problems with the cable from the satellite to the TV or maybe the box is just bad.

I would just call a service tech from directv to come out a debug the problem. Being 6 year long client he might even qualify for FREE upgrades and installation from DirecTV.

You could try our Premium Chat or list here but 1.) you would need to physically be there or your dad would possibly need to be able to have access to the dish and 2.)you would need some tools. You are probable looking at $65 for a cheap coax tester and maybe additional $50 for tools and possible cable. The decision is yours but if you can justify the cost of buying the tools then let us know.

Hope that helps!

Tuning to pick up sky feed


Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.

Television only locates 7 channels????!!!!!


Hi there!
If you cannot receive all channels it may be a fault with the antenna or the tuner may be faulty. If you have a VCR, you can tune that into the TV first and then tune the VCR to see if you then receive all channels. If so, use the VCR position on the TV to view and select or change channels on the VCR only. Good Luck,JUS004

Cannot get DVD to Play on TV


Try the old RCA/GE channels of 90/91 or 92 to get to the inputs. Or try entering channel 00. Let me know if that works.
