ok i would appreciate it as ive been trying to connect this new tv to the directv box for almost a week the old tv was a 24" and the usb cable one end fits on the box or the tv the other end does not

It is not necessary to connect the USB on the Directv Genie.

Have you selected the correct input source on the TV to view it?

what is the correct input source i cannot use the remotes for menu as the screen shows no signal so i cant access anything
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
pete you are doing fine answering questions here you say not to connect the usb but the tv itself says no signal so i cant tell what the correct input source is

It depends what input connection you are using, e.g. if you have it connected using coax cable to an "AV" input on your TV then select "AV" using the TV's remote control.
