I also tried disconnecting the cable from the back of the tv and ran a jumper from the wallplate labed "aux/sat & tv" - no help. Any idea of what to do next?
OK since you have an aux/sat F connector on your wall plate I assume you have a sat connection on the outside.
This is a straight shot coax. Nothing in between.
You hook the dish to the outside connector.
You hook the receiver to the aux/sat F-connector inside.
The you run cable from the receiver to the TV Aux input
You can use whatever both the receiver and the TV have in common.
(RCA - red, white, yellow) (Component Red, Blue, Green, Red and white Audio) or (HDMI)
You then select that aux input on the TV and change the channels with the dish network tuner.
You should never be changing channels on your TV.
