Hello! The guide might be set to only HD. You will find this out by going into the guide. At the top Left of your guide, you will see that it says left to the right of the DISH Network logo. If it says ALL HD, then just press the GUIDE button again, until the list says ALL CHAN or ALL SUB. This way, you can view not only HD channels, but SD channels as well! Hope this helps!!!!
Hi edhayes27 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network Executive Office. This posting in FixYa shows you have the 311 receiver; this receiver will only show SD channels. We do have the VIP 211 which will show in HD and SD channels. If possible can you verify the model number of your receiver, which indicates you
The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR. The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV. The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.
It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input. & VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.
No, and if they have not already gone, you will loose the rest of your channels soon Virgin has now switched to nagravision 3 encryption. All eurovox/starview boxes can now only receive SOME free to air programs. If you rescan, all the programs are picked up, but all the encrypted channels are blocked. There is no fix yet, and there will probably be NO fix for your box, or any box without an ethernet connection. Check afterdawn.com or techkings for more info
There are a few reasons that this could happen. The main reason would be that the tv is on the incorrect channel or input. You will want to make sure that if you are at TV1, the channel is on 3 or 4, and an input if needed, such as VIDEO 1 or 2. If at TV2, the channel needs to be on 60 or 73. Cabling is another reason this could be. You want to make sure that if you are at TV1, all cables going from the receiver to the TV are connected on the back of the receiver at the green TV1 location. For TV2, the cable needs to be connected to the HOME DISTRIBUTION output on the back of the receiver.
I should be channel 3 or 4. This assumes that this coax cable is coming out as a TV R.F. connection of a Dish Network Box (Satellite Receiver) intended for direct connection to an old fashioned NTSC (channels 2-13, 14-83, possibly even has cable channels depending on how old?) TV.
If this coax is the output of a coax going directly to the Satellite Dish or through what might might look to you like some kind of fancy splitter (called a Multi-Switch) the you WOULD NOT want to hook that to your old NTSC tv. The frequency is too high ... etc. etc... you would need Dish Box (as you call it) a.k.a. a Satellite receiver - with a good and active satellite card from your provider.
Well, I don 't have that T.V. but I can tell you that you may have to go to your menu and look for your channel setup and change it to another channel output. If that doesn't help then have it search for channels.
Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok 1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr 2. then other scart from vcr into tv 3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr. you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr. If the channels change then your on the right av channel. Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through. You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead. say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems. Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
