Our dish network picture looks horrible. everything else looks good. video games ect. is there a trick ?


There are a few things that you could do for this. You could try a different type of cable. Such as, if you are currently using RCA cables, either try another RCA cable in its place, as the cable may be going bad, or try another type of cable, such as coax. You will also want to make sure that you are using the correct input/channel. If you are at TV1, you will want to make sure that the tv is on channel 3 or 4, and sometimes an input, such as video 1 or 2. If you are at TV2, you will want to make sure that the tv is on channel 60 or 73. You will also want to make sure that the other components are powered off while watching the DISH Network.

Your old tv does not have more than 11 slots to store channel .

Is my Hitachi 61uwx10b ultravision hd ready digital tv ready when they switch over to digital vrodacasting or will i need a converter box,


This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

TV won't work with rabbit ears


You must change the input on the system to be AIR/Antenna , the way it was before was set to cable/dish/DTV.
The tv sees the input different.

No volume


Normally when you have only one channel with audio the cause is usually SAP is turned on, either on the television or the cable or Sat elite box.
If you were pushing buttons on the remote, I would suggest that the SAP button is on the remote.
On a Samsung remote, the MTS button identifies this function. It may be labeled stereo.
Make sure the remote is in the TV mode to change or check on the TV.
It may also be a button on the remote for the Cable or Sat elite box. If not then you may have to search in the menu's of the Television or the boxes.
If the set is only two weeks old (the actual set, not how long you have owned it) then it probably has an ATSC turner labeled Air that will receive local HD by using rabbit ears. If the set is over 3 years old, it will not have this feature.
It's difficult to give a full de script explanation of a solution without knowing the model or configuration of the input signal.
If this does not help, respond to this post and I will reply.

Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)


Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.
