I recently switched from Dish network to Direct TV. I think the new picture looks inferior to the old and as I was doing some settings searching, I noticed that my input on my TV didnt say HDMI any more? (I had installed the HDMI expansion card 1 year ago). Instead it said Component/RGB? I am getting picture and sound, and the only cable hooked to my tv was the HDMI cable, why would it say component/RGB? I run an HDMI cable from the direct tv box, through my pioneer reciever, then to my tv HDMI card. I THOUGHT the TV input used to say HDMI, but am wondering if anyone can shed some light?
If I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps

Hi Harryward_26, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. In order to comply with movie industry standards, DISH network, as well as all TV
providers, must enforce content protection standards when required. This message
indicates that your TV or connection is not High bandwidth Digital Copy Protection (HDCP) capable. It is likely your TV
was manufactured before industry standards required HDCP. In order to resolve this issue you would need to replace your HDMI cable with component cables (red, green and blue). Once you do this you will be able to view the content. If you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email me direct at Cheri.Torres@Dish.com. Thanks!
Hello Al, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. Connecting your LG TV to your DISH Network receiver should be fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your LG TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input, source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and if you have further questions feel free to ask!
If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities. Daniel Busa DISH Network Customer Service
Try unplugging the receiver from your electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire the satellite signal. After this, you should get your picture back. I hope this helps.
You have settings in your TV and satellite receiver to set the resolution for the picture. I would first go into the TV settings and use 1080p for the TV resolution. Also, in the receiver setting, you have the HDTV setting. From the main menu, press 6 (System Setup) and then 8 (HDTV Setup). For TV Type change to 1080i. The Aspect Ratio should be 16:9. I hope this helps.
Vizio panels are especially delicate when it comes to under or over voltage spikes, I would say that the LCD panel has failed and will probably cost approx. 80% the cost of a new television, I have experienced that Vizio TVs are a tuff one to get service on in my area, so you might call vizio direct and talk with one of their service reps.
GOOD LUCK !
