My children have a vip622k dual reciever they share. My sons is the tv2 and is currently conected with coax cable. It has been fuzzy since it was installed. I wanted to switch it to rca cables to try and get a more clear picture. I unhooked the coax from the tv, plugged the red/white/yellow into the tv, plugged the other end into the tv2 rca outputs on the back of the reciever and switched the tv to the correct mode, but all I get is the dish network partial signal loss message. Is there a setting I need to change in the menu or a change I need to make in the way the signal is delivered to the reciever?( right now one coax comes out of the wall connects to a triplexer witch is connected to the sat1 sat2 and home distribution outputs, and the coax I disconnected from the back of my sons tv goes somewhere in the attic.)
Any suggestions would be appreciated

Have you tried setting the TV2 output to a different channel? Very likely that would solve the problem if it's not a bad cable or connections. Go to MENU-6-1-5 to change it from the receiver, then switch the TV to the appropriate channel. For ME channel 21 or 60 (AIR) works best. Hope this helps!

Do you have the protection plan? It will cost you $15 for a service call, something is missing in your description of what was disconnected.

I agree. it sounds like you disconnected or loosened the input. Tightening all the connections would be my first step. Then go ahead and see if the RCA picture is adequate. If not make sure you have coax hooked up correctly but try different UHF channels.

BTW why would you split the cable from the dish 3 ways? You seem to be directing that 3rd feed somewhere else but what other than a DISH receiver can do anything with the signal?
