In order to receive HD signals, you will need an HD receiver from Dish Network. You can buy an HD antenna from pretty much any store that sells TV stuff (Target, Wal*Mart, BestBuy, etc) which will allow you to receive over the air HD signals. But in order to get your satellite channels in HD, you will need an HD receiver from Dish Network.

How to get full picture on my tv?


First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

Sd dish reciever not recognized by hdtv tuner


Hey dgrines81!

I would need more information to provide an accurate solution including what model of receiver, but it sounds like you have an SD receiver hooked up to a HD TV.

Our SD receivers can show picture on an HD TV, they just need the correct cable. If your TV has the spot, I would recommend using RCA (Red, Yellow, White) cables. Plug those in to the receiver and the TV and then change the input. If the problem continues feel free to reach me here, or at thomas.faust@dish.com.

bestone890,

Go into the Main Menu. From there go to System Setup (6) -> HDTV Setup (8). Make TV Type 1080i and Aspect Ratio 16x9 and select Done. Your picture should now be showing a HD picture.

I am getting a HD signal to my HDTV with HDMI but the coax out connection is not working. Should I call DISH or ???


Hi jgolf721my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was reading your post and I waswondering if your not getting a picture through the COAX connection. The COAXconnection will not transmit a HD picture only SD, and if your not getting apicture at all you will want to check some things. You will want to make sureit is on the right input or channel and unplug the receiver for 10 seconds andafter you plug it back in it will power up. You should see a DISH Networkscreen acquire the signal, if you have anymore questions you can e-mail me. Michael.houston@dishnetwork.com

Hd-Fox T2 Displays InSt how do I get to Installation Wizard


Hi geroncolm my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network. The dual HD receivers allow for TV1 to show in standard and high definition. On the TV2 it will show in SD format only, even if the TV is a HDTV. We do have System Wizard and you will need to be in front of TV1 and hold down the 0 button on the remote for 10 seconds, it will enter the system wizard. Once you enter System Wizard it will allow you to reformat the remote.

I have a total of two standard tv's currently connected to my Dish receiver box 322. I would like to upgrade my main tv to a LCD tv. Can I still keep the 322 receiver or will I need to upgrade to a HD...


Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH Network Customer Support.

You can still keep the 322 receiver with your new LCD tv. An HD receiver upgrade would be beneifical as well to make sure you maintain the best picture quality.

This link may come in handy for HD upgrades: http://www.dishnetwork.com/faq/default.aspx?Category=Existing%20Customer%20Promotions/Upgrades

What satellite dish to buy for a dish 301 reciever


Any dish would work for the 301 except a 1000.4, however I would recommend a Dish 500 unless you're planning on going to HD, if so a 1000.2. You can lookup the angles at www.dishpointer.com if you're going to point it yourself, or you can call our customer service line at 1-800-333-3474 and see about a technician. Hope that helps
