Any -1, -2 channles considered as a off-air antenna channels. I assume you have the off-air antenna and good reception on it. So make sure your off air antenna hooked up to your receiver.

If everything is hooked up right and your reception on antenna is good, try to trace the line for your antenna. may find any visual problems such as loosen up, dog chewed the cable etc :D

Last thing if you don't find solution by yourself is call your service provider for service call.

Good luck

How to get around having to get a Digital Transport Adapter box


Sounds like you are in dangerous waters. Most utilities have imminent domain (I think that's what it's called) and have the right to put their equipment anywhere that is safe and does not hinder your access.
Asking for a box on a public board is a surefire way to get into trouble.

Analog to Digital TV Converter-Which Brand is BEST for the Money?


my first question is how many channels can you receive now, that are clear with no snow, without a dtv box hooked up. if any channels have snowy pictures now when tuned in at best reception, you more than likely will not pick then up with the dtv box. the only option in my opinion that some may prefer from one model to another would be the program guide on some units only show whats on now and next, whereas some units may have a 5 to 7 day program guide. there is one unit out that has a noticeable hum on the audio if turned to a high volume. Im not familiar with the dtt901, but from what you have looked at so far, you shouldnt go wrong with purchasing any one of them. If you can only get 1 or 2 channels now, i wouldnt invest a fortune in a dtv box, unless its your only means of viewing television, and watch alot of tv.

Insignia Digital to analog converter menu doesn't come up


When my Menu did not come up, I found it on the AUX channel (one below channel 3). I was able to go through the set up, but found only one digital channel available. Hope this helps!

No antenna reception with digital converter box.


Hello Faznmc,

I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Digital tv tuner Converter box


Your ability to receive stations will be based on the the type of antenna you have. There are three typical types: a Yagi ( It is the traditional type) it is uni directional ; bi--directional; and lastly omnidirectional. Both the Yagi and Bidirectional need to be pointed toward the local ABC affiliate tower to receive signal this may result in loss of others channels at that time. Finally all antennas have a range that they are effective. Check the range of the antenna you have. If you go to www.antennaweb.org they can tell you the proper azimuth for pointing your antenna and they will give you a breakdown of the towers so you can see the specific tower you need to point toward to get ABC and if I remember correctly they give you the distance from your location to the tower.
If you have any questions post a comment to this solution. Hope this helps you.

Digital converter box


Greetings kathy76turne,

In February 2009 you will be unable to receive ANY analog television signals therefore the digital converter box will be a necessity to receive any over the air broadcasts.

I am unable to answer the question about the mini van's electrical capability, however you might find the following link handy to get more information.

ZENEITH DTT900 ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER BOX CONNECTIONS


Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.
