Try a reset on it. push and hold the power button down for 5 or 10 seconds untll it goes off. it will then "acquire" satellite and reload program info and then it should work right.

xtreamz_69,

It sounds like you connected the coax cable to your TV. What channel is the TV set on when you have the Freeview connected? Because you are using a coax cable, the TV should be set to either channel 3 or 4 (normally channel 3). Check to make sure your TV is on one of those channels. Also verify your receiver is on. Your TV has the several other type ports (HDMI, component, composite) as alternatives to pick up your picture. If you have any other questions, please post to this site.

Cannot get a clear picture with dish network I have a Clear picture when using DVD


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.

Will this receiver work with a dish 500 antenna to receive standard channels only


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. To answer your question, yes the ViP211 will work with a dish 500. It will receive the standard channels as you asked, but if you wish to get HD, the dish on your home will need to be upgraded. Hope this helps!

DISH Network DVR-625 DTV - AUDIO PROBLEM ON LOCAL CHANNELS ONLY


I am probably stating the obvious here but here it goes:
If the 625 is connected to the tv using coax directly try using the RCA jacks to connect directly to the tv. If the 625 goes through a peripheral first, eliminate that peripheral and conect directly to the tv.If the problem exists with different media connections still at the same tv you can remove the coax off of the TV1(3-4) output on the back of the 625 and attach it to the TV2(CH60-73) output.You would then change your tv channel from 3 or 4 to ch 60air or 73 cable(which will be the same channel that TV2 is normally on in the remote room without the 625) Once you are on the right channel you will be able to tune TV1 to your local channel using the TV2 remote. If the audio is good here it eliminates the TV coax input on the TV1 and the coax cable connecting it as the source of the problem. You will have already eliminated any other inputs on the same tv as being faulty by using the other connecting media leaving you with the internal components of the receiver as being faulty. In this situation I know of no recourse except the obvious.
