I KNOW that you have a satellite receiver, but have you also got an antenna hooked up (even rabbit ears).

Hook up some cheap antenna and try to run channel scan again. If it picks up ONE channel, it shouls stop nagging you. Then you can try hitting the input button a few times in a row to get where you want to go.
