Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
How do you mean " the cables for the receiver do not match the tv " ?
You don't have the correct cables or the terminals are not the same ?
Can you give me the model number of your dish receiver box
Is there a port called HDMI on the dish box ?
If so then your tv has 4 HDMI inputs , all you need is a single HDMI cable and you`re done .
You connect it from the dish box to say HDMI 1 input att the rear of the tv and set the tv`s input there and thats it , you have a HD picture and sound
If you don`t have a HDMI cable then believe me its worth going out and buy yourself a $10 cable , no need to go for fancy $40 cables.
Beside the hassle of connecting a mess of wires ,it will give you the best picture and sound you can get .

Is it supposed to be HD ?
Look again for a port called HDMI
That number doesn`t bring anything , can you see something that starts with VIP...... ?
In any case the red/white/yellow connection can be used but it would be a shame to use that if you can go for component at least
This would be like connecting a vcr in the 80`s with low fuzzy resolution
In any case if you have only the red/white/yellow cable then at the back of the tv insert the red and white in their matching colors then the yellow into the green terminal at the back of the tv into INPUT 2 then select that input on the tv
sorry but without a name or model number I cannot suggest anything on that box , you are probably looking at Svideo
connect it the way I suggested and it will work
on the box manual`s cover , what does it say ?
That's correct , no hdmi so you will have to use the red/white/yellow cables as I explained above , here it is again;
if you have only the red/white/yellow cable then at the back of the tv insert the red and white in their matching colors then the yellow into the green terminal at the back of the tv into INPUT 2 then select that input on the tv
The tv will detect the composite signal and switch for it
What dvd ???
If you have a dvd there then use input 1 for it , they are the same
You mean its not connected yet ??
Just follow the colors
the terminals are color coded just match the colors
Sorry but I think you will need an installer .
Myself I have to step out , sorry but I did not think this would take this long and I have service calls to attend to .
You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.Please just standby and someone should be with you shortly .PS. DO NOT rate or it will hinder the repost .
Hello I am another Expert.I have attached the part of the manual which shows what to do. Yes, you can use Input 1 or 2 for the Red blue & green but you will also need to connect the Red (Right) & white (left) cables between the TV & DVD which will provide the sound.Please let me know if you have further questions.
