A few things to check.  First, the 150 has several inputs so you need to
make sure you are using the Tuner input.  As I recall, on my system the
PVR-150 claims (I think) to have inputs tht it doesn't physically have.  So
you might see multiple tuner inputs even if there is only one.  Finally,
make sure you are tuning the right channel.  Find out what channel the Dish
Network box is modulating the signal onto and be sure to tune that on the
PVR-150 side.

Another thing to keep in mind is that people say you'll get better reception
if you grab the signal through the S-Video output from your Dish box.  In
other words, use an S-Video cable to connect the S-Video jack on the Dish
Network box to the S-Video jack on the the PVR-150.  If you do this, it is
important to understand that the cable does not carry audio so you also need
to connect the audio out from the Dish Network box to the line in audio
connector on the PC.  There is also some configuration required in Myth to
select the appropriate audio device to capture from and probably some other
"desktop" settings to be made as well.
