HDMI splitter/switch problems with Dishnetwork Reciever
My LG lcd tv only has one hdmi output so I bought something simliar to this, 3 Port HDMI Switch Selector HDTV Xbox Box w/HDMI Cable - eBay (item 350414919916 end time Dec-18-10 01:37:09 PST) . I hooked the hdmi cable from the TV into it and then the bluray, ps3, and dishnetwork reciever. Everything works fine except for the disnetwork box. It says no signal on my tv when i switch to that port. I tried other combinations and all the ports are functioning. Anyone run into this before? Is it something built into the dish box and is there anyway around it? Thanks in advance

they werent really any help. I dont think the tv has anything to do with it. everything works fine except the dish reciever. its almost like its blocking it through the splitter. maybe to keep you from hooking up more than one tv to a box? i donno

Have you tried to plug the dish cable straight into the tv?
if not try that and see if when you were messing with it the cable went bad.
or try another cable to see if it works.

To trouble shoot it I would:
- Plug the box directly to the TV to make sure it's working correctly
- Unplug all devices from the splitter EXCEPT for the DISH-BOX
It very well could be that the splitter box is too cheap to transfer the signals from the box.

Did you try looking through the dish settings on the box and see if there is any option you need to turn on for this? Maybe try changing the output, to say like SD.

well after searching a few tv forums i've found this to be a common problem. i'm going to try and upgrade to a nicer splitter and go from there.
