Hi Lylell, Your LG Studioworks 221U Monitor's input uses either a D-Sub which is a standard 15 pin vga cable or a 13W3C cable which is for cad workstations. On the other hand the output of your Dish Network receiver is either RCA-type audio/video or an S-video output. Since all are not directly compatible you would need something in between and not just cables. Technically what you need is to convert composite video output to d-sub 15 pin video input. A fine example is COMP2VGA by www.startech.com originally designed for gamers. There are some in the market that are simple connector to connector such as in http://www.trianglecables.com/1footvgadbma.html, please don't bother since it has been known not to work. To complete the setup, you would need a stereo amp/speaker pair for the audio out of your receiver. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

I cannot access any of my recordings, there is just a black screen instead of a preview of what has been taped on the right of the recording list, and when I click the ok button to watch, nothing happens. ...

Does your recordings show when you press the DVR button on the remote? You stated that you are able to watch TV and change channels but not able to access your recordings. What is the model number of your receiver? Is it a DISH Network receiver? If it is DISH Network, try unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire the satellite signal. Please let me know if you still have problems.

I am getting black borders top & bottom on some channels and side to side as well on Fox on my Dish Net receiver 322 to analog TV.


Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here. The black borders are usually caused by watching standard definition programming on a high definition television. Try to change the format on your tv. Either by pressing the * button below the 7, or trying a format or display button on the original tv remote. Hope this helps!!!

We cannot watch a show on another channel on other


Hello! Dan Busa here with DISH Network customer service. This is actually how your DVR is supposed to function. A 622 is a dual tuner reciever meaning it's capable of watching or recording two live shows at a time. When you record a show you tie up one tuner, there are two work arounds. You can get an additional dvr receiver or you can set up record preferences and have everything automatically record to tv2.

We would be happy to help you with this. Pressing either the "Cancel" or the "View Live TV" button located on the right side of your DISH Network remote should take you out of the programming guide. You also mentioned that the programming guide displays no data; unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in. By resetting the receiver this was it will prompt it to update the programming guide information.

We hope this helps in getting things set up the way you want it. Thanks for choosing DISH Network!
