Celestial HD Digital Television Receiver DVB8800HD

I have just bought one of the above from our local dealer who said I could hook this up onto my ageing Panasonic (THE ONE) Television and have it work. After a few goes I think he may be wrong. Any ideas would be most helpful. Thanks, Alan

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.

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.

Just bought a Sony XBR9 and Comcast gave me a Motorola DCT6200 box which has a DVI output to a HDMI input into the TV. When switching from a HD channel to an analog or digital channel, the picture is...


I am having the exact same issue. It started happening within the first few hours of turning on the XBR9 for the first time. I also have a Motorola box from Comcast. This did not happen with the HD TV that was hooked up previously. Did you return the TV?

If you're 15 miles or less away, rabbit ears
If you're 20 miles or less, omnidirectional outdoor
If you're 50 miles or less, mid range
80 miles or less, long range

Print off your results from antenna web and bring them into a local RadioShack or some place near you that sells antennas, and they can help you find your best fit.

Celestial dvb8800hd


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.

The analog to digital only applies to television sets that are operating off of a rabbit ear or out door antenna that picks up local stations, or cable television without the cable box/receiver. If you have satellite television or cable with the receivers, your televisions will continue to work after the analog to digital transition.

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.

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.
