Question about Projection Televisions

3 Answers

Recently bought strong Satellite system,have Astra 2ab and hotbird,so have 2 dishes.Got 2 box's installed,one in bedroom upstairs,one downstairs..The box upstairs works perfectly no problems!.The one downstairs,nothing but problems,even though its set up exactly as the one upstairs.Sometimes the picture freezes and 'no or bad signal appears on the screen.At other times when trying to get a signal so I can tune in stations,no signal will come up on either Astra or hot-bird..And sometimes when I switch on the box first thing in the morning,lo and behold the signal is back!When i get the signal back,the picture quality is excellent!.But say i try to get onto a station like aljazeera,its not long before it freezes and again 'no or bad signal appears..If i change to a station with a signal and flick back to aljazeera it will work for a minute or two before that dreaded 'no or bad signal raises its ugly head.Can anyone help out there?..Bruce

YEAH.
YOU ARE USING TWO BOXES RIGHT.
ONE IS MOTHER BOX IN THAT. I MEAN THE FIRST ONE.

THE SIGNAL NEEDED FROM THE DISH IS NOT SUFFICIENT

    first the exchange the defective box in sitting you have with the prefect one in bedroom. if that is working fine then u can narrow the problem with the exact spot.

    even if the good box is giving same problem in sitting room then i think you wil go for a booster.
    use a booster.
    problem over.

    thank you

    good luck

  • dewan nafees ahmed Mar 18, 2008

    ya sir. thanks for reply.

    what i told you to try is a very simple try.
    you can do it by yourself.
    just interchange the boxes and see if the problem prevails.

    if problem still remains the you will need a booster surely.

You will most likely need what is called a scan converter/scaler. It will convert your source signal to the desired signal for you. You can find these online.

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.

To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.

My sky hd box intermitently looses sound then shortly after the picture goes then it freezes any ideas


poor satellite reception... possibly mis-aligned dish (moved by wind?) or a tree/building blocking line-of-sight have a local installer (most tv aerial installers) take a look at the dish/cable (for worn spots on the cable)

My Sky system says there is no satellite signal being received. Have tried disconnecting box etc with no improvement.What else can I do?


press services then system set up then signal test the signal strenth and qaulity should be about half way at least it shows up grey lock indicator should be ok if it shows not locked your dish has been moved and needs to be alighned do this when the weather is fine clounds and rain reduce the signal and may even stop it all together sky will charge you £65 to alighn the dish but you can buy a meter and do your self get 1 from bandq ebay maplins worth checking for breakes in the cable going from your box to the dish and if you can try your box on a friends dish just to rule out a faulty box of course there is a chance the lnb on the dish has gone faulty but you can get these cheap to or even borrow a friends to try unscrew the cable and look how it is fixed on useualy they just pull of but it might have a clip on or tape on

HD Hookup on Dish Network 2nd Location


In order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.

Try unplugging the Dish box for a minute, then plug back in, is the program guide blippy?
