DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3

I just bought DTV converter Box for my 27" Zenith system 3, perhaps made in 1980s. No Signal, I've even manually entered the Channels but still no signal. Converter Box is Magnavox TB100MG9.

So I purchased two brand new Anternas, still no signal. When I test the signal with the Converter Box it show no signal, none. But when I connect just the Anternna direct to the TV, at least I am able to watch the TV though it snowy.

My question is... is this TV so very old for DTV Converter Box?

I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

Make sure the TV is set to channel 3 if that is what the output channel is set to on your converter box. You can also test the TV by hooking up a good VCR to the TV and play back a good tape on the channel that VCR is set to output on. Now the important thing to remember if the setup is correct is that with Digital signals, you either have it or you don't. If the digital signal is too weak, it will show up as "no signal" and you may have to invest in a good outdoor antenna, rotor and good antenna amplifer to get a viewable picture, especially if the station you are trying to receive is over 50 miles away. Hope this helps, your TV is probably not at fault.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

Switch from catv to antenna


Please explain what the problem is? You will need a converter box to do this, as the broadcast signal is digital and must be converted to analog. They (converters) are available on eBay for about $15.00

Hello, The Original remote quit working, So I bought a RCA universal remote control RCR314WZ. I need the code for (DTA800B1 B1L) converter box. so the remote will control it


Some RCA universal remotes list STB codes but you can try using code search to find something that can handle some or all functions. If a search through all codes contained in the remote does not succeed, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
