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!

It's not working what can I do to program one for all controller to rca tv


HI,
The One For All 3 Device Universal Remote Control is preprogrammed at the factory to operate an RCA TV, a Toshiba DVD player, and a Motorola cable box. To control devices other than the default brands, perform the following steps; otherwise skip this section:

HOW TO PROGRAM

1.Turn on a desired device (e.g.,VCR or DVD player) and, if applicable, insert media (e.g., cassette or disc)

NOTE: Please read steps 2 through 4 completely before proceeding. Highlight or write down the codes and device you wish to program before starting step.

( CHECK THE BELLOW ADDED LINK TO FIND THE CODE )


2.On the remote control, press a device key once (i.e., DVD/VCR, CBL/SAT, or TV).

NOTE: To program control of a VCR, PVR (or DVR), TV/VCR Combo, or TV/VCR/DVD Player Combo press DVD/VCRonce. After programming a VCR Combo device, you will be able to control channel selection, volume, and VCR functions.

Find the user guide for your universal remote and use the RCA cable tv/satellite codes, and one should work for your RCA DTA800B1 converter box. My Sharp Aquos remote liked the RCA satellite code.

I can't get channel 3 to show satellite channels. They only show up on Video 3. I need channel 3 to work for surround sound. I checked wiring diagram and it looks like everything is hooked up the way it...


Hi there Guest, what you will want to check is what type of cable is hooked up to the TV. To broadcast on channel 3 it needs to be connected from the receiver by a Coax cable instead of RCA/HDMI/Component cables.

Programming a ATSC DTV tuner on a RCA Universal Remote


Try a code for a "satellite receiver" of the same manufacturer of your DTV tuner. I've heard of a cross-remote complaint with the DirectTV box and the DTVPal box. Note, your DTV tuner may say RCA, but it could be manufactured by a common DTV tuner maker. The system looks very close to a Zinwell. Don't have an RCA model to try the codes out, though.

RCR311W Rmote will not change tv channels


It appears you need to program the satellite device code back into the remote. Has this worked for you before or just started this trouble out of the blue?
You can some times have the satellite providers install the remote or insert the code information for you [for free most of the time] otherwise you can contact the satellite provider directly for the discrete coding based upon your remote control.

Keep us informed on how things go for you. Thanks!
