I am trying to hook up my dish cable ( the one that is a circle with a needle in the middle) to the back of the TV so I can get television but there is no place to plug it in. What do I do?

If the cable comes from the dish,then unless you have a freesat tv that will not connect into your tv.The cable from a dish normaly connects into a sky box or cable box.You need a cable from an aerial to connect into the tv.

Have vizio tv trying to hook audio out puts of tv/dish network for component usei nto my stereo receiver what do i do

The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV.
Connect this cable to the back of the stereo receiver where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the stereo receiver output to the TV.

Connecting DVD to cable only TV and Modulator box and Dish Networ

Without knowing the actual ports on each of these devices, all I can suggest is that have you tried connecting your DVD to the Dish box (thru VCR scart connection at the back of the Dish box) and then the Dish box into your modulator (and then modulator into your tv.

I have a similar system set up but we have a Sky Digital box here, no idea if its the same as a Dish box but im assuming so.

No signal when hooking up to dish network.

I unhooked the new tv and hooked up the old one to see what channel it was on and then rehooked up the new tv and put it on the same channel as the old one.This worked but I also had to put the cable into the hook up on the back marked cable instead of the one marked HDTV.
