I have one receiver and two tvs. Regardless of which tv I'm watching or either remote I'm using, the tvs get the same channels. I would like to watch different channels on each tv. Any solution?

Tjhuston41,

It sounds like the receiver may be in single mode which means both TV's will show the same picture. Pressing the mode button on the right side of the receiver will switch it to dual mode allowing both TV's to be used separately.

If the receiver doesn't have a mode button, then the issue could be the TV's are mirroring each other. Confirming the cable connections will tell you if that is the case.

Dish remote 2 changes channels on both tvs and dish remote 1 changes channels on both tvs


Is the receiver in dual mode? Go to the receiver, open the door, and hit the mode key. If both TVs are still showing the same thing, then the issue is not the mode.

Go to TV 2 (the one without the receiver) and make sure the TV is tuned to channel 60 or 73. If it is still showing the same thing, go to TV1 (the one with the receiver) and hit Menu, system setup, Installation, modulation (menu 6-1-5). make sure the modulation for tv2 matches which channel you put your tv2 on.

Still showing the same thing? check the back of the receiver, the RCA cables (red/white/yellow) are plugged into the TV1 ports not the TV2 ports.

Showing different things but the remote still changes channels on both tvs? Go to TV1, hit menu twice, near the bottom there are two boxes each with a number. This is the address for each remote (tv1 and tv2). On the TV2 remote hold sat until it stays lit, choose a number different than on the screen, touch pound (#), the sat light blinks three times, hit record, the number on the screen should change to match the one you typed in.

Still being silly? Call a priest, you have a poltergeist!

How can i make it possible to watch different channels on 2 t.v.


Daneal,

To watch 2 TVs on different channels, you would need at least a duo receiver. Our duo receivers have two tuners built into them, and just need the proper connections to broadcast individual programming to two locations.

Just make sure the duo receiver is in dual mode. Let me know if you have any questions!

TV will not display picture or sound except for 1 station which appears to be 440. I can't change the channel either at the dials or remote. The display says EAS.


DONT USE the remote that came with your TV

use the buttons on the box to change the channel. did the channel change?

usually when someone only has one channel its because they are changing the tv channel not the cable box channel

think of it like this:
the TV is a monitor and should always be on the same channel (3, 4, hdmi, or whatever) its actually the box that tunes and the tv always stays on the same channel.

so if you change the tv channel you are no longer watching the output of the cable box.

USE the remote supplied by your cable provider

If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
• Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

•Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.

• Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step .

Hi Tracy, my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. With the TV2 remote working for both TVs, you will want to make sure the TV1 input on the receiver is connected to the TV cable (RCA or Coax cable) and TV2 input is connected to TV2 port on the back of the receiver. I will provide you our link explaining in more detail about connections. If you have any further questions I will provide you my e-mail; michael.ouston@dish.com.

Have a722 reciver uhf remote will not change channels onlly have picture from tv 1


kristinjacqu,

Your 722 receiver may be in single mode. This is the case usually when you have the same picture on both TVs and the remote won't function. On the receiver when it's in single mode, you will have a green light for TV 1 and an amber light for mode under the single box.

To put in dual mode, open the door on the right side of the receiver (the door will open to the right). Once open, in the upper left corner of that area you have a mode button (to the right of the power button). Press the mode button and the amber light will now illuminate under the 2 boxes. The blue light for TV 2 should also illuminate indicating the receiver is now in dual mode. This will separate the 2 TVs and you can now watch different channels on both TVS, plus the remotes will now work. I hope this helps.

If you have a dual tuner it is in sigle mode. Go to the front panel on the receiver and press the mode button. This may be behind a push open door based on the receiver you have. If this does not work let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
