Do you still have same problem?

I did as you said I cannot get my dish network to appear on screen
Expert:  Shahid replied 8 months ago.

OK, it is possible that TV has set on wrong video input that makes it unable to get connected video source signals. Please check what video input of TV is hooked to satellite receiver by reading the label then press Input button on TV remote and select that input source, this should correct the issue.
