I just purchased (from a yard sale) an older GE tv. Mfg. Sept. 1998, Model #13GP241. I have to set it on channel 73 to make it work with my Dish DVR. I can only get up to channel 69. Is that as far as it goes or is there a way to program it to make it go higher?

Hi there. Maybe your TV is not equipped for S channel reception.
Channel 73 falls into the S band; (21-69 is the normal UHF band.)
However in most cases, you must choose in wich band you scan your channels; (H, or S) I cannot imagine that this modern TV should not be equipped for S channels. Try manual channel search, where you'll probably find this possibility.
It sounds like the main system control memory IC to your set is faulty. Even though, this IC is very small in size, and very cheap to buy, the function to it, when the TV is switched on is great. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case. To get some details, http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts.
I am assuming you have a dish network duel tuner. You can actually use any channel under 60 for the second t.v.. You can find all that information in that big pamphlet that your remote comes in. It also sounds like your in antenna mode, (please make sure your tv2 side is on before you do this) go to the second tv go to menu system set up scroll through until you see input type or something along those lines, make sure you select cable, then do a channel scan/ setup it should pick it up.
how old it the t.v. - most t.v.s are at least 181 channel compatible..hodge-podge words..in lay terms you have to have the capability on the t.v. to support X nbr of channels...also check to see if you have the menu set at cable or air...setting needs to be on cable
Most TVs have a choice of air or cable in the menu portion of the tv. press menu go to setup and from there you should see an option that says air/antenna or cable. You will have to either toggle to get the air selection or highlight it. Then you should be able to get to channels you need.
An easier solution may be to go to the Dish receiver that controls the image on the tv you can't get to 73. With tv and satellite on (make sure both green and blue lights are on) press on your Dish remote #1 with the green tab on the bottom the following sequence: MENU - 6-1-5. tHIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MODULATOR SET UP PAGE. Move the highlight from cancel to the mode section an highlight AIR and press select. Then move the highlight back to the right to DONE and press select. Press cancel three times or view live tv. then go to the other tv and put it on ch 60.
Hope this assists you.
SOUNDS LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WHEN THE CHANNEL GOT ACCIDENTALLY BLOCKED AS AN UNUSED CHANNEL CHECK YOUR MENU ON REMOTE FOR ADD AND REMOVE CHANNELS AND RELOAD THAT CHANNEL AS INSTRUCTS IN MANUAL FOR THE TV
