Hooked up the tv to my existing cable and it will only receive 15 channels. All my other tv's receive many more like 100 +. I did the auto detect when I hooked up the tv and 15 is all it detected.

Hello,

This is a fairly common issue, either the TV has the upper channels blocked or the signal in that room is just not as strong so a quick scan is passing them over. I will give you the steps to remedy both issues. If the channels show up weak or snowy or not at all after trying these steps you may need to install a booster where you current line splitter is but try these steps first as the TV can easily compensate for a slightly low signal.

Enter the TV Menu, Select TV, Select Channels, Select Master List. Look for channels with X beside them, if they have X they are blocked, simply move down the menu selecting each one to remove the X.

Now that you have verified or corrected your master list select Turn on Additional Scan from the scan menu and run a new scan. The additional scan will take a lot longer but will take more time on each channel and should find them even if the signal is a little low.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

New jensen jdtv-1020 won't see either air or cable signal as TV2 with Dish DVR 625. An older Emerson color TV sees cable 100 but the new jensen does not see it during auto detect.


Hello, Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service here. First thing to try is putting the TV on channel 73. At TV1, press menu on the remote, followed by 6-1-5 (system setup-installation-modulator setup), make sure that TV2 out is on cable mode, which should default to channel 73. If you're still not getting a picture, try performing a hard reset on the receiver. To perform a hard reset, unplug the receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds, then plug it back in. The receiver reboots (which can take about 5 minutes), then check TV2 again. If there is still no picture, make sure all of the cabling is secure, and bypass any other devices (VCR, DVD player, etc.). If this does not fix the problem, please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com and I will make sure we get this taken care of for you.

I don't know how to set the tv to receive all of the channels


Enter the "menu" and select auto program. This will allow the set to search for all available channels. There is also a possibility that when you hooked it up the little wire center conductor in the cable might have been bent over when you hooked it up. Check that first.

I have a HDMI cable hooked between my Direct tv DVR receiver and my Samsung flat screen HD plasma tv. When I turn to Direct tv channels 100 or 200 the screen begins to flicker. My tv is 1080i. This is what...


If the TV just Flickers for a few Seconds then the Picture is Good and Stable, That is just the HDMI re-syncing often due to different signals from 480i to 1080i being broadcasted. If it continues to Flicker then check the options for Video set-up in your DTV menu. Make sure all available resolutions are checked to display or select AUTO if possible. TIP: NEVER Unplug or Plug in HDMI cables with the Power ON. This can Short out the HDMI Input leading to a Repair. Turn off All Units then plug in your cables, When ALL are in then hit the Powers.

Cnannel scan detects no channels


Kingscott,
Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,
Caseybee

Kenwood vrs-6100 receivers optical digital


You want to receive the optical signal from the TV's built in decoder / receiver to play through your Kenwood? Maybe you need to select the digital input. The manual says:

Use the INPUT SELECTOR key (or Input Selector keys)
to select DVD, VIDEO or FRONT AUX.

2 Press the INPUT MODE key.
Each press switches the setting as follows:

1 "F-AUTO": Auto detect
("AUTO DETECT" indicator lights up)

2 "D-MANUAL": Fixed to digital input
("DIGITAL" indicator lights up)

3 "ANALOG": Fixed to analog input *
("AUTO DETECT", "DIGITAL" indicator goes off)

Also check your TV to make sure it is outputting to the optical jack.
