I have hooked up my converter box but its not receiving any signal. do i need to buy a new antana? Or what could be the problem?


make sure u have the antena hooked to box and box hooked to tv, make sure antena wire is actually hooked to an antena if wire is coming out of the wall, otherwise u more than likely need a new antena, or box it's self is bad but if it turns on and u see somtin on the screen like make sure antena is hooked up then the box is probaly good

I hooked up the converter box to my antenna and TV, turned both on, but never got the Welcome window and menu to set the thing up, that the instruction book said I should get. All I got was "no signal."...


I don't know what converter box you have, but try these steps to see if they work:


1. Turn on your TV to channel 3 or 4.

2. Turn on your converter box.

3. On your converter's remote contro, press menu key.

4. A list of menu items appear. You can autoscan channel from there.

DTV converter automatically shits off


Hi,

I just checked mine after reading your problem. I have a Magnavox converter. On the Setup Menu, there is a selection called Detail. One of the options on Detail is Auto Power Down. There are 4 choices in this: 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, and OFF. Select OFF, then OK on your remote and exit the menu.

My Magnavox may be a little different, but there should be a menu item to turn it off.

Converter Box Problem


If you are receiving digital signal and channel is fuzzy, something wrong. Only Analog signal is fuzzy. With Digital it is great picture or nothing. For channel 6, check to see if they are broadcasting in digital yet. If they are not, this is why you are not getting a signal. If they are broadcasting in digital, then you need a stronger antenna.

Converter box turns off by itself when watching tv.


Check the settings in the menu--many boxes have "power save" mode and will shut off after anywhere from 2-12 hours of inactivity. You should be able disable it or change it to a longer time.

Is a booster needed for the tb100mw9 dtv converter box?


Best solution would be to use an outdoor antenna with an amplifier(booster)--but in some areas you may get by with an amplified set top antenna. Just all depends on your location..

In perspective, I have an outdoor UHF dish and 10 foot VHF antennas with an amplifier and still i get only fair reception on outlying digital stations that normally come in clear on analog.


Also--this converter box must complete the autoscan with an antenna attached, or else you'll receive NOTHING; not even by manually selecting a known digital channel.

This #@!! box automatically locks out what it considers to be unused or weak channels. It makes the decisions and you're left with 'no signal' messages and nothing to do but try a rescan.....and you cannot add channels to any it has already found.

NO SIGNAL on Magnavox TB100MW9 converter


Rabbit ears are not strong enough to pik up the digital signal. You need to buy a DIGITAL antenna. You can pick a powered one up at Wal-Mart, or any retailer for around 20 bucks. Once you have the proper type of antenna, go through the setup sequence again and then you will be in the "digital age". You will wonder why they didn't do this sooner!
