This can happen when there is radio interference near the coaxial cables. Sometimes the interference is behind walls. The solution is to try a different combination of modulation and channel than what the DISH receiver is current set.

The DISH menu screen for this setting is Menu-6-1-5. With dual-tuner receivers, typically "TV 1 Out" is the TV that is connected in the same room as the receiver is located. "TV 2 Out" is the tuner that is fed to the remote TV via backfed coaxial signal.

All that needs to be done is to change the channel and mode going to the effected TV to something different. If your channel/mode is currently set to Air/60, try changing it to Cable/73. When you change the mode/channel in the DISH receiver, you need to set the remote TV to the same mode and channel.

Keep in mind that with some TV companies like VIZIO, they call their "Air" mode "Antenna". With VIZIO's the TV must be set on TV input and then go into the Menu to the Settings, Tuner Settings. Change mode type to match what you are trying on the DISH receiver, exit the VIZIO menu and manually enter the channel number.

Eventually with trial and error, you will find a mode/channel combination that isn't effected by your particular environmental interference.

SOURCE: Philips flat tv. Can't get it to hook up to dish

I should be channel 3 or 4. This assumes that this coax cable is coming out as a TV R.F. connection of a Dish Network Box (Satellite Receiver) intended for direct connection to an old fashioned NTSC (channels 2-13, 14-83, possibly even has cable channels depending on how old?) TV.

If this coax is the output of a coax going directly to the Satellite Dish or through what might might look to you like some kind of fancy splitter (called a Multi-Switch) the you WOULD NOT want to hook that to your old NTSC tv. The frequency is too high ... etc. etc... you would need Dish Box (as you call it) a.k.a. a Satellite receiver - with a good and active satellite card from your provider.

How to hook up Dish Network Receiver


which Dish Receiver do u have. if it is a Dual Tuner (322,625,622, 722) u run a RG6 Coax from the Dish to the back of the Receiver. on back of the receiver there should be two ports (Dish 1,, and Dish2) u will need two short pieces of coax and a Separator ,(which should have come with the Receiver. u hook the coax from the outside Dish to the single port of the Separator , now u run a coax (or RCA or what ever) to the TV. Turn on TV and Receiver.
on the Dish remote u hit the Menu button and hit #6 then #1 and #1 again (wait for each screen to change ) u should see a signal bar at the bottom. U will need to get someone to turn the dish a little at a time till u get a signal. once u get a strong signal u hit the Check Switch and let it program.

TV1 seems fine while TV2 continues trying to acquire the satellite signal. I've reset it several times via the front panel and by unplugging but nothing works.

You may have a loose connection from your TV 2 feed. You can check the cables on the back of the receiver to make sure they are secure. Depending upon your installation, you could have 1 or 2 separators back feeding your TV 2 from the receiver to your TV 2. In the center of the receiver you have your TV 2 coax port. From that TV 2 port, check all points of connections to make sure the cables are secure and tight. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you may have a bad connector or switch, which would require a technician to repair. I hope this helps.

Picture breaks down on some stations saying no signal or signal weak.


2 possible solutions, 1. If you have any type of dish network, go into the service part of the menu and check the signal strength usually a signal on any of the transponders less than 70 will cause this on some channels due to thier own signal. You can have either a tech come out,( sometimes for free, or you can adjust the dish very i reat very small increments so as not to diviate from the correct izmuth setting originally aimed at. to do this, you can do it yourself by selecting signal strentgh meters on the menu and raising the volume so you can hear the repeated blips while adjusting the dish. The sound your looking for is like the old Pong game on atari. The faster the blips, the stronger the signal. Slower blips mean your aligning the dish in the wrong direction.

2. Check your coax cables. If their old, they may not support the bandwidth being sent through it. Check at connections, ( All of Them) they wear with age. Is the cable itself at the connection protruding enough to enter the receiving female part. When you unscrew a coax at the connection, it should have about 1/8" to 1/4" copper cable past the connector and in clean, good, straight condition. make sure they are tight, and good luck

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

Okay I am not positive I have this right as far as the configuration of the system but I will give it a shot. If you run the 722 to the tv using rca's you get the hum. I assume this as there are no inputs on a dish 722 receiver. I can suggest one possible solution which is to buy an rf modulator. It will convert the signal from rca to coax so you can connect as you wish. There are several types out there so ensure you get the one that converts from rca to coax. I would suggest the following configuration: Remove all connections from tv and hook 722 up via rca's to rca input 1 on the tv, check for hum. If it is present now you need a new 722 as it is passing to much power thru the connection. If there is no hum connect your cable and tivo to the tv via whatever inputs you have remaining. Lastly connect the DVD player to another input that is free. You will have to system through your inputs to view the three sources but should not have the hum. I hope this solves your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

New TV hookup


Erica,
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
