Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Strange problem has started with my tv signal. I have a standard wall plate with coax and f feed. The f feed is connected to my free sat tv direct. The problem is i share the coax cable to another television and also have another coax plate in another room, i cannot get a signal on any tv connected by coax unless i leave my tv on in living room that has f feed attached. Tried unplugging f feed direct from plate and i lose coax reception completely. Any idea what has happened to a setup that work flawlessly until yesterday. Its a shared dish and communal aerial placed by council on a new roof?

The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?

Yes, this is done many times. If you do have a degraded picture because of all the slitters you can just add a antenna booster amp to compensate.

When you write 'tuner,' do you mean the internal TV tuner or do you have a cable box between the wall connector and your set's input?

If you are connected from the wall to the set, then the sensitive circuitry (it may only tolerate a few volts max video) is damaged.
If your set was a couple of decades old, it might be fairly easy to repair.

If the set was damaged via the cable service, you may have some recourse unless your cable provider has seen fit to absolve themselves from liability, I suspect they have.

I do not know your set but it is not impossible that the video input circuitry for cable and antenna is on a smaller assembly that processes it before reaching the main board.
The latter has obviously survived since you still have the other functions.

I have a Sony rear projection tv model # KP 53HS10 I need to connect to a Direct TV satellite box

Depending on the way that you want to do this, you can use a short coax to connect to the antenna input and the sat box. You can use component cables to connect from the sat to the set. If you do that you need 3 cables for video and two for sound. You can use svideo also and maybe digital audio.

Added a 322 reciever to my lake house to be able to watch tv in 3rd room i had 2 standard recievers before. i installed a dish pro quad lnb & reciever had a separator w/it says dp plus 123254 tuner 2...

Is TV 2 off the 322 receiver being back fed from the receiver or do you have a direct connection to the 3rd room? If it is a direct connection, you would screw the coax from the 3rd bedroom directly to the TV 2 Home Distribution channel 21-69 out port.

If you are back feeding, you need 2 diplexers that connect 1) by the receiver and 2) between the receiver and the 3rd TV. The back feeding will use the same cable coming from the dish to the receiver.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

How to program for sat

You do not need to program the TV for SAT because your signal comes directly from the SAT, you are only using your TV as a monitor, not a tuner. Connect your SAT via standard rca, component, or hdmi cable and change the input on your TV to the same input that you have connected your SAT to. If you connect via coax cable then set your TV to channel 3 or 4, ALWAYS using your SAT remote to change channels for both options.

My (Cable Service) wire feed is directly behind my HDTV and hooked up over my fireplace . The Rxv667 is located on a side wall book shelf. I have A HDMI wire running to the TV from my receiver. Do I need...

Is there a set top cable box, or are you feeding the cable directly to your HDTV (coax directly to the TV). If you are feeding cable directly to the HDTV then you don't need HDMI. There maybe exceptions, but most TV's don't have HDMI output. The only thing you need to run from your TV to the Yamaha is an audio cable. I assume your HDTV has an optical audio out (either TOS or coax.... Your Yamaha will accept either). Connect the optical audio cable to the AV4 input on the Yamaha. This way when you hit the TV scene button on the Yamaha remote, it will select the AV4 audio input (the default for the TV scene). The optical cable will feed the full audio signal, so that the Yamaha can pass through the surround sound or use the decoder as appropriate to feed your 7.1 or 5.1 speaker system.
If you have a set top box, you may be better off moving that near the Yamaha. In this case, cable goes to settop box, output of set top box via HDMI or component video (RGB) and optical audio to the Yamaha (if you use HDMI Input 2, and AV4 for the optical audio (if necessary), the TV Scene will select the appropriate inputs) and then an HDMI to your HDTV.
In case one, you may need to setup the TV to process the audio appropriately. I have experience with Panasonic Plasma but thats about it.

I am transitioning our spare bedroom into a tv room. There is a coax wall plate in the room. I bought a new satellite receiver but do not think the coax wall jack is turned on. I can not get a signal...

Hi
1st remove the plate from the wall cheek if there is a coax cable connected to it also make sure the plate is not broken if it is of the printed circuit type. 2nd trace out where the cable goes to most likley into the loft if you are using this to receive sat pictures the this lead will need be to connected to a sat dish or a aerial for tv (free view) if you have to replace any cable use the correct type.

Used receiver at different location for 3 months.

Had repair man come. The coax connection going to TV from receiver had went bad in the receiver. The other connectors in box worked but not the coax anymore that is why the box worked on other TV since using video and sound cables. Got new box for signing up for another 18 months with Direct TV. Didn't have to have splitter to just get Satalite so that wasn't the problem at all. Any of the splitters I had would have worked.

Snow on screen and no picture on my DS35510

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, if the previous system/connection works then we should leave that as it is. Coax-Sat Receiver-Coax-DVD Recorder-TV and TV should be Channel 3 (or 4).

On the new Sat Receiver, coax from LNB/Dish to Sat Receiver, yellow, red & white to TV. TV should be set to Video 1 or A/V or Video. There should be no snow, rather if no reception, it should be blue indicating video has muted in the absence of a good signal.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
