I’m trying to hook up my dish to my Vizio e series smart tv. Dish has a coaxial cable & there’s no port for it on the tv, so I bought a converter box. The converter box menu has me stuck—I can’t figure out how to get my dish up & running. I’ve scanned channels & nothing happens. Help!

I guess calling dish tv is my next step. I was hoping for an easy solution of buying a converter instead of spending hours on a phone getting customer support.
 
Well assuming the provider allows you to buy your own box, they may have specific models requirement, and they should have an online DIY turn on procedure. It maybe slightly different for each provider, there is no universal plug&play. People who wants your money don't want to make it too easy.
