Yes as in yes you noticed this problem on other equipment connected ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
can you try it please ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Try what?
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
The dvd to see if it also does that problem or only the satellite box does it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know how to operate the dvd player, have not used in over a year.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
O.k then the idea here is to try something else and plugged into another port to see if the tv does it or the sat. box .Or try another tv on that same connection ??
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
When it does that problem , if you open the tv`s own menu , does it show up correctly or is also affected ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The TV can only be viewed via satalittle, get no local programing. Anything taped on the DVR has the same problem not matter what TV it is viewed on.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
You are saying that it does that on other tv`s as well ?Did the sat. tech. know that ?? This info surely points out to a defective satellite receiver /dvr !!Not your tv
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes the taped shows have the same problem as live TV, so that idicates reception issues and not TV issue am I understanding you correctly?
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
100% correct and especially if this happens on other tv`s as well
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
