One thing you could try is to get an amplifier for your antenna. There available at Radio Shack and other electronic stores. The amplifier plugs into an electrical outlet. The antenna coxial connector plugs into the input of the amplifier then you take another coax wire and run it from the converter to the output of the amplifier. Then try pointing it around to see what you get. Your antenna should be approved for digital TV use as well.

I've heard that digital tv is a little more precise to get than the analog. One source you can use to find out what direction the tv transmitters in your area are pointing at is:

Type in the call letters of the station to see where the transmitters are located. This is very detailed information on this page.

The model # is: L42FHD37. I need to know how to set up an amplified indoor HDTV antenna. RCA multi directional serial # ANT1450BFW.


Attach the antenna to the antenna/TV input on the back of the TV. If you have a flat twin lead wire on your antenna, you'll need a co-ax converter. (Best buy, etc.) Power on the TV (and the amplified antenna) and use the Input button on the remote to select the TV input. Next use the menu button to select channels and then engage the auto-search option to memorize all of the available channels in your area.

Your signal strenght is too weak either try moving the antenna to a different location. If that doesn't work then you may need an outside antenna. The link below will tell you what stations are available at your address and what type of antenna is necessary.. TV Fool

I understand your issue as not getting the Digital reception from your converter box. The antenna plays an important role in what you can get. If you still have the Amplified antenna try to reduce the amplification and readjust the antenna positions. You might have to do this several times until you get it right. Also, if you live in a city and not a rural location do not use an amplified antenna and see if it is any better.
Good Luck.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

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!

Need a smart antenna to go with the Digital TV converter box


First, you don't need a Smart Antenna, the manual is simply stating that your converter will use one if you have it. Any standard antenna will work, so there is no need for a coupon to pay for a new one, whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location and distance from each channel transmission tower. Since you don't give details of what antenna you are using, I will assume you have rabbit ears for each converter. Rabbit ears are notorious for poor reception and any metal or persons nearby will change the reception quality. I would recommend a roof mounted external antenna with splitters for the 3 converters if you have the option. If not, use an amplified internal antenna and mount it closest to the channel towers you will watch most and as high as possible. If you can find a smart antenna, which is an amplified indoor/outdoor antenna with a control cable for changing the direction of reception, for a decent price, you can use that but keep in mind that to use the control feature you will need one for each converter. Also, check antennaweb.org for information on digital channels in your area and their direction and distance. Antennaweb.org will also tell you if any digital channel in your area uses VHF frequencies. If they don't then a UHF only antenna will work fine.
