Question about Directv (DWO2-10024)

2 Answers

Directv will not show ESPN but all other channels are displayed


I have paid for all of the Sports Channels. But ESPN, 206, says searching for a satellite signal. It has been doing this for 2 weeks. Customer Service at Directv keeps telling me it is fixed, when it is not.

I know that one of Transformers (8) has a signal strength of 69, all of the rest are in the 80's or high 90's.

Has anybody ever experienced this?

Any help is appreciated!

    If it is a signal issue, does this mean I have to contact Directv to fix it or can I fix it?

    i am having the same problem...i lose espn, cbs, mtv, and a WHOLE lot of other channels. i have the sprots pack and the mlb extra innings and so many of those channels have been cutting in and out for almost 2 weeks. directv says its something wrong on my end but obviously not.

    have you solved your problem yet?

    I get a blank screen when I go to ESPN (channel 206) and if I wait long enough, a picture will appear, then freeze and maybe be replaced by the blank screen or another "freeze" frame of a later image. I've contacted Directv and they've escalted the problem to ESPN(?).

How do I get the basketball scores to show on the bottom of my tv?

Usually these scores only show up on sports networks (NFL Network, ESPN, CBS Sports, etc.). On DirecTV there is a button on the remote that shows the scores, but again, they are only available on sports networks. Some newer internet connected televisions have buttons on the remotes that show the scores.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

Why does mu Eurovox Max V box not get ESPN or Sky Sports 1? It gets all other Sports channels.VM user.

It is possible that the channel name is not being resolved as happens with me with some channels. I have to go through the "TV" numbered channels till I find the one I want and then rename it. eg TV1003 etc I don't know the number for ESPN.

This is a repost: We use Sansui DTV2760 at our correctional institution and it displays a black and white picture on ESPN when the other channels are showing color and the other make tvs (JVC, Toshiba)are...

You probably got a cable issue specially if this is only on one channel or your tuner is going out one o the two here.

Check signal have a ingress check doneo n the tuner you will be glad you did. Please do use our chat option if you need further details.

How to hook my directv to digital input to lcd tv j32l637

I don't know what flat screen tv you have,but you must be aware of the coaxial input behind the TV.It could be analog input,digital input and OUTPUT!!
Anyway,if you connect your basic directv box to your digital input,it will not serve you any purpose to get HD channels and you don't have the HD directv box.The TV will not display digital channel for you because if you use coaxial input to TV,you should be under either channel 3 or 4 and be sure either channel had been saved under memory.In order to change channels,you will need to change it from your directv box.
JUST LIKE a VCR connect to TV.TV will be under channel 3 or 4,and you will change your channels from the VCR.Don't forget to scan all the channels from the VCR!
