All inputs except the direct feed from the satelite dish have vertical lines. Even the DVD player input has vertical lines. All cables from the dish have been replaced by the company. This did not solve the problem.

Re: vertical lines in picture
If your satellite is in the component jack and does not have the lines, you have a bad doubler or 2HD board. These boards are located in the metal container on the left side of the tv (left as in when you are looking at the back of the tv).

Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.
So the TV internal electronics for decoding the signal have failed. You could replace the TV. A cheaper alternative is to find a VCR or digital recorder that can take the satellite input in, and put the picture out on an HDMI cable to your TV.
Extremely blue color temperature that
cannot be adjusted; some false-contouring artifacts in dark scenes; no
picture-in-picture; limited connectivity with just one DVI and no HDMI
inputs. If use as a TV monitor: The number of colors you can display is controlled by the video card
installed in your computer. In order to display more than 16 colors,
the proper video card driver must be installed. Contact your computer
or video card manufacturer to obtain the latest driver from them. If you are watching standard-definition or Cable/RF signal on an HDTV,
the picture may appear to be of poor quality. This is because the TV is
designed for viewing HD or at least digital content. Your best bet would
be to upgrade to a Dish Network HD receiver and connect it to the TV
with an HDMI cable. Similarly inputting analog signal to TV from your
DVD player will not appear to be of great quality. A newer DVD player
would most likely have component video output which would look much
better. To get even greater quality, an upconverting DVD player
connected with an HDMI cable would look the best. You could also upgrade
to a Blu-ray disc player, which is capable of playing HD Blu-ray discs
as well as DVD's at higher resolution. A less expensive choice could
also be a streaming media box.
Hierarchy of inputs for good picture quality:
Hello! This is Dan with DISH Network customer support. have you tried cycling the inputs? If you have an HD tv the DISH receiver and your DVD are probably connected using different cables. I would power them both on and hit the input or source button on your LG remote until you get a picture from the dvd player. Remember what input comes up as you will need to change this to go from satellite to DVDand back.
Sometimes the input/channel for the DISH Network and the DVD are different, and if using the same for both, then you will get an unclear picture on one. If at TV1, the tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and possibly an input such as video 1 or 2. The DVD player may be on a different input, such as video 3, or even just on channel 3 only. If at TV2, the tv needs to on channel 60 or 73. When using the DVD, try putting the tv on channel 3 or 4, that is normally the channel that the tv needs to be on. Also, make sure that the DVD player is not on while you are trying to watch just the dish.
so you have the yellow out from dvd player to yellow in on the receiver (composite video) and the red and white out from dvd player to red and white in on the receiver (right and left audio channel) . you can also plug in the orange rca (digital coaxial audio) go to your menu on the Haman Kardon receiver and make sure you select the right audio input. mine is a Harman Kardon AVR146 push th osd (on screen display) on the remote. go ti the input setup and select the appropriate audio input
The satelite dish will not pass-through the video/audio from your DVD player. You will need to find an open area (preferably DVD selector) on your receiver to input the DVD video/audio. Most satelite boxes are one way devices.
Satelite box --> Receiver (satelite input)--> TV
DVD Player --> Receiver (DVD Player input) --> TV
I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white.
There are different resolutions now.
The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal.
Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution.
If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input.
Hope this helps.
