This is an ancient message so you have probably long since found your problem.
There may be additional input settings to be made since it sounds like the set isn't seeing any input. If you are using the cable input on both the receiver and TV, you will have to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 to see the output of the Dish receiver.
There are three common ways to connect; via the familiar cable in/outputs, S-video with a separate audio cable, and possibly DVI. The TV's input may not search for and find the right input since many sets have a setting via their menu to force the set to look at a specific input.
It helps to have both the Dish manual and the set's manual side-by-side.

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!

I have a flat screen and Dish Network for my cable. I switched the "source" to watch a dvd, and when I switched it back to channel 3 I have a blue screen. cable (dish network) is on and working....


It all depends on how your dish cable is connected to your television. The possibilities I can think of would be by composite cables (not HD)--these cables are the yellow red and white combo. It could also be component--the video cables are the blue, green and red. The other possibility is a single HDMI cable which looks like a rectangle and delivers both the video and the sound from the cable source to the T.V. as one cord. Depending on which of these you are using to output the signal from the cable box to the T.V. will determine which "source" you should select when trying to watch tv. Hope this helps!

Hey murphypat321,

Sounds like the TV may need to be on ch 73 cable rather than 60 air. Try switching the TV to 73, if it goes to 69 then put back on 60, if goes to 73 good. Once you have that set go to your TV1 and bring up the menu. Go to System Setup (6) -> Installation (1) -> Modulator Setup (5) and change the TV2 setup to either cable if on 73 or air if on 60 and the picture should come in if everything's hooked up.

Hope that helped! You can email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com if the problem persists.

Make sure you have the TV tuned to the modulator's output channel (3 or 4 as set by the switch on its rear panel). Also, turn the modulator on first, and then tune the TV to the modulator channel. This will make sure the set properly adjusts its automatic fine tuning. What you're describing sounds like the TV isn't exactly on the channel.

If the trouble continues, try switching the modulator to its other channel and see if the sound clears up. Enough of an interfering signal may be getting through where you have it set now.

If you still have no success, return the modulator and exchange it. These aren't high-precision devices, and often the output frequency is slightly off. On most TVs it's not a problem, but some tuners are more finicky than others.

Hi mfpayton with the install of the brand new receiver wealways want to make sure all connections are tight. And after all connectionsare hand tight we will need to run the Check Switch Test. It will provide thestrongest signal to your home and you will see the signal move up into the 65percent range. If after the Check Switch Test it still is a low signal we mayneed to check the connections from the Dish and LNB that is an issue we wouldneed to come out on. I will leave the link to show you how to do the CST.http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/complete-sig-loss

Cancelled dish & hooked up rabbit ears. no local channels


Digital channels require a really strong signal to work well compared to analog. Can you get any analog channels through the tv itself? You will probably need to get a large antenna mounted outside to get these channels to work especially if you are a distance outside the city from where the broadcast is coming from. Sorry for the bad news. It is one of the bad things about the digital transition.

Dish network vs. on screen problem


This surely is not a problem? The TV is simply indicating what channel it is recieving signals from. But in most TVs, to remove this On Screen Display, just deactivate by pressing 'Display' or 'OSD' on the Tvs Remote, as well as on the Remote of the Dish Tv reciever.
