Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

1 Answer

Piture breaks up

I have an older TV with a converter box, and I get about 11 stations which is better than the 3 origional, but the stations break up badly, and sometimes I just get a 'no signal' message on the screen. I do have an old rooftop antenna, would a special one help this problem?
Thanks for your help.

Usually rooftop antennas yield the best reception, but if it's old maybe it's rusted or the cables need replacing perhaps. With digital programming, it's either it comes in great or you don't get a pic at all unlike analog which will allow snowy images and bad reception to come in.

The picture on the tv has gone bad. How do I know if it is the tv or converter box


Disconnect the converter box, and tune the TV with Ariel. If on air stations has no problem, the converter box has the fault. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Can't change channels stuck on 4 tried scanning it but it goes back to 4 won't change on the tv or a remote


When you run a scan the TV changes to every channel and tries to tune in a station. that is why it takes so long. If your TV is only finding channel 4, I would guess that is the only station strong enough for it to pick-up. You should check and / or replace your antenna and or antenna cable. Then re-scan the channels. with a better antenna, it should find more stations.
Most older Tube type TVs need a converter to pick-up digital TV, if you have a converter, make sure it is plugged in.

You should not be getting any stations without a digital tuner TV or a converter box.

The FCC site says this:

The FCC established September 1, 2015 as the date for the termination of all analog low-power television service. Since that date, analog television should no longer exist in the United States. Until that time, LPTV stations were allowed to continue to operate their analog facilities.

Why can't i pick up channels using a RCA converter box, amplified HDTV antenna on my rca XL 100 analogue TV


If you live a good distance from the TV station you may need a better antenna. Did you do a channel search on the converter box? You'll need the remote for the converter box to change channels, not the TV's remote.

What specific model of JVC multi-system TV do you have? What is the signal source?

The majority of the JVC multi-system TVs that I've researched only have analog tuners (NTSC, PAL). The AV-29LX is an example of the older JVC TVs. Since most over-the-air signals are digital, you will need a digital-to-analog OTA signal converter to watch any signal from an aerial TV. If you have a cable system that has upgraded to digital cable, you will need a cable box.

Converter boxes are harder to find but there are a few remaining. Here's one for the US: http://www.amazon.com/Magnavox-DTV-Digital-Analog-Converter/dp/B0013ZKZGU .

I wish that I had better news for you.

(A few low-power stations still broadcast in the analog format. However, you have to be really close to the station or have an outdoor antenna to have a chance at receiving the signal.)

I have an older model Ihome that is mounted in my kitchen, I can no longer play tv stations on it. What do I do to fix this problem?


All broadcasting in the US is digital now, so older tuners won't pull in anything. Get a digital TV converter box and antenna for it or go with Cable.

Ebay or Google search "digital tv converter box"

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

Picture sixe reduced and picture breaks up with converter box


You can change the way the channels can be displayed/viewed by a video setting, consult manual. When pic breaks into pixels and sound goes it's usually a reception problem so you'll have to adjust the antenna facing a direction that makes that channel come in clearly. It helps to experiment with positions and antennas.

Nope. Not a digital Television. I'm guessing it's an older one. Most TV's sold nowdays are Digital TV ready.
