I would start with the DirecTV unit first and set the resolution back to 480i. This can be done in the menu or with a button on the front of the receiver, all modes are shown on the front of the unit. It's not uncommon to get that message when using the DTV input on MITS tv's, it's just a formatting glitch...but a bit annoying. Your set may not decode 720p resolution so I suspect those channels that broadcast that format may be your problem.
Convergence ICs are STK392-110 you will need two of them they are available at the link I am posting and they give free instalation instructions with pics and free tech support so you can do the repair yourself.Heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
Your computer is set to a resolution supported by your dell monitor but not the flat screen tv.
The easiest way to get it working is to turn the computer off, connect the flat panel to the computer and then turn the computer on.
To change the resolution of the flat-panel or monitor, right-click on the desktop, click on properties and then select the settings tab.
play with the screen resolution and find one that works best by trying each one and clicking apply. If you select a resolution not supported by your flat panel, computer will automatically revert to the previous resolution in 15 secs.
I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white.
There are different resolutions now.
The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal.
Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution.
If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input.
Hope this helps.
