Which model of DishTV you are using? And is it on the latest firmware?

Also, what sort of problem are you having?

It's a T1020. Problems are

Screen size is not correct, also differs depending on composite or Component output.
Powers on with coloured horizontal lines superimposed over the picture, they disappear after about 3-5 minutes.
Pictures freezes quite often (aerial is shared with a Panasonic TV which has never frozen)

And the straw that broke the camels back, it now skips Prime on channel 10, goes from 9 back to 1.

Would prefer something that just works without facing Mecca etc... and LOL with its own remote frequency. When the media player is turned off, the 1020 turns on teletext requiring a power down to remove.

If only analogue TV was staying.....

What version of firmware do you have on the box?
Do you have a UHF / VHF combo aerial? What part of the country are you in?
