Celestial HD Digital Television Receiver DVB8800HD

Hi - my husband's connected the box as per the diagram (and we have a DVD player as well) - what next? There are no other instructions in the box apart from the connection diagram. I've turned it on via the remote - could you pls give us some idea of where to go next? Thanks & regards - Cath

    We have connected the Celestial HD Receiver in Component mode but when we see the menu on the TV screen it is split into 7 columns. I was able to guess my way down the menu to auto scan, which seemed to work but the split screen problem is still there. Could it be our TV? It's an LG Flatron Model RT28FZ10RX bought in late 2002. Thanks.

Normally, there are 2 ways to hook these devices up. One is the component cable that has 3 colors, red white and yellow. these color codes match an aux. input on the TV (or vid1 or vid2) You need to change the TV input to whichever you used by the remote or maybe under Ch2 (4,3,2,vid2, vid1, aux,111,110,etc) The other way is to use the round 4-5 pin S-video instead of the yellow jack, that is self explanetory. The 3rd way and this depends on your TV and receiver is to use the HDMI, composite or DVI cable connection. These are only for Hi def players and will be either a large multi-pinned computer type plug, 5 colored/lead "octopus" cable, or a smaller D shaped high density cable with the row of contacts inside the plug. In any case you need to tell the TV which input you are using.
Once you get the TV to show a picture of the receiver, then you autoprogram the receiver with the remote under setup or other menu.

Bought a dvb8800hd celestial hd set top box in March 2008. Last couple of months occassionally have no sound. Now sound hasn't been working for last couple of weeks. Can you help? Is it something that can be fixed, loose connection somewhere? Or should I just go out & buy a new set top box?

Thanks!

Is a xfinity HD box the same as a cable box


No a standard digital box puts out a resolution of Mpeg2 the HD box can out out Mpeg2 or Mpeg4. One is DVD quality the HD is HD. So standard digital is hundreds of lines per square inch and HD is thousands of lines per square inch. Huge difference between the 2.

TRYING TO INSTALL DIGITAL SET-TOP BOX WITH DVD AND TV


Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers

I have a ViP 722. It has no rf output for TV1, just the hookup for TV2. The multi RCA hookup for HD. HD is not as important to me as is a clean picture and audio on my TV. No matter how I do it, I get a...


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.

problem solved by looking past the inseparable remote control and indexing the channel button on the unit. Fiddling with remotes can be a real waste of time.

It appears that the default output is set to component video by the manufacturer.
connect it to a suitable TV and change the output to composite and you'll be able to use it.

Connecting an a/v receiver to a Dish network receiver


DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,

Digital converter box


Greetings kathy76turne,

In February 2009 you will be unable to receive ANY analog television signals therefore the digital converter box will be a necessity to receive any over the air broadcasts.

I am unable to answer the question about the mini van's electrical capability, however you might find the following link handy to get more information.

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.
Jim
