Insignia Digital to analog converter menu doesn't come up

I have hooked up the converter box to my indoor antenna and to the TV. The converter box menu doesn't come up as described in the manual. I am still getting video from the indoor antenna.
How do I tune the TV to channel 3?
Thanks.
Rocco I bought an RCA DTA800B1 converter box for my analog Magnavox TV. Menu does not come up. Except the on/off button, no other buttons seem to have an effect. I see certain channels better with the box on (Yellow/Red color LED) than when the box turned off (Green LED). This is the second converter that I tried. Yesterday, RCA 7766 converter had the similar problem. I thought that was due to a problem with the converter and I returned it to the store and bought the DTA800B1.

Any help will be appreciated!

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!

I hooked up my RCA Digital-T -Analog Converter Box


www.antennaweb.org

If you're 15 miles or less away, rabbit ears
If you're 20 miles or less, omnidirectional outdoor
If you're 50 miles or less, mid range
80 miles or less, long range

Print off your results from antenna web and bring them into a local RadioShack or some place near you that sells antennas, and they can help you find your best fit.

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 converter box setup


Hi Kilroy75,

It sounds like you probably set this up properly. The converter box is powered on, indicated by the blue light (it is illuminated red if powered off). I would recommend that you check to see if your TV has to be on a specific channel to receive external input.

To double check the connection, you should be able to follow the antenna into the converter box, then the converter box into the TV. Check to make sure you have input/output correct, and that video matches video, audio matches audio, etc.

Also, some antennas require power. If this is the case, make sure the antenna is plugged in and powered on.

If none of these suggestions help, I would try a little troubleshooting to determine which piece of equipment is giving the problem. Try connecting another device into the same input to see if your TV receives signal through input 1. You may also try a different set of A/V cables or a different input on the TV.

If you still are unable to get your setup working, I recommend you bring the converter box into your local Geek Squad® precinct for further troubleshooting and advice.

Thank you,
Jason,

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.
