Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

We have a Toshiba 27AF45 color TV. We receive our programming through Dish satellite. When the switchover to digital occurs, will we be able to coninue our reception through Dish without the addition of the $40 box? If our reception will continue without the box, will it actually be digital? In other words, would we get better, clearer reception if we purchase and connect the $40 box that we've heard about?

You cannot receive digital signal with your analog dish. Therefore you will need to switch to digital box soon.
I think they will lnitially leave both analog and digital for a little while, so that for sometime you should be able to use your old equipment(not sure).
In any case digital signal is usually better than analog then you should get a better picture if you switch to digital box.

Yes ofcourse you will get a clearer reception on any kind of televisions. I have seen Bulky flat screen tvs' give a lot better output after hooking up the box and with projection and Plasma tvs' its just mind blowing.. By the way i own a box too..

It could be the cable from the receiver to the TV. Check to see if the cable is an RG-6 and NOT RG-59 cable. Are you able to use RCA cables? They get much cleaner pictures and sound. If this still is a problem, you can get a small TV and connect it to see if the problem is still there! If it is, then your cable coming for the Dish could be bad. I believer the Cable Company will warrant that! I hope this helps...

Are you saying that this happens only when you are using the RF input? Is it not happening when you use the video input from the satellite receiver? Try a DVD player on the input of the video where you now have the Satellite receiver connected. Let me know exactly what you mean as i need a little more information so I can assist you.

Will I be able to receive HDTV programming on my TV?


Your HDMI Cable or Component Cables will plug right into their receiver box. You won't need anything else and they should supply the cables too.

Unit is on Dish Network. Timed out during nite. "Locked" message on. Experimenting with remote was usless. No picture. Unit is small flat screen. Gift, no manual.


First, power down the Receiver and remove the card, disconnect your dish networking data cables. ( All )
Power down your TV.
Allow 2 minutes for the dish receiver to set, before powering up.
Next, reconnect all cables to dish Receiver and power on the TV and Receiver.
Next, plug in the card for Receiver.
The unit should cycle and show network accessing satellites.
If you have used this system before, you should know any setup steps or configurations.
Hope this has been of some help and your system now works.
Please rate kindly.

Funny colores and shapes on my 42" Toshiba projection TV


There are a number of possibilities based upon your description. Can you be a little more descriptive about the colors? For example, does the picture look like a 3-D one? Also, please confirm the model as that will help to identify specific defective parts and more detailed solutions.

Thanks,
Dan
