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

1 Answer

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu

I have an Insignia NS-DXA1-APT DTV converter box. It was my intention to connect my TV to the converter box via the "RF" coaxial (without antenna). But, the installation screen said to make sure the antenna was connected before continuing. So I turned the TV, and the converter box off, and connected the antenna to the "From Antenna" coaxial, on the back of the converter box. When I turned the TV and converter box back on, there was no longer an installation screen on the TV. Apparently, the Insignia installation screen comes on the first time the box is turned on and after that, its lost forever! I cannot program my converter box. The remote control won't put the menu back. I should have connected the antenna without turning off the converter box! I called Insignia and they said there was nothing I could do but take it back to where I purchased it and ask for an exchange. I don't think anybody reading this can help me, but I want to throw this out to everyone who is about to install the Insignia converter box. Have your antenna connected before you turn on the converter box for the first time, and do not turn it off until you have finished programming. Insignia does not give a big enough caution on this.

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.

I own an Insignia flat screen tv, NS-LCD27, & I was given the Insignia converter box, NS-DXA1; how do I program tv remote for the box? Thanks, frances b.


The digital to analog converters did not exist when the TV was built and the remote programmed. Thus you will have more luck programming the converter box's remote to control the TV. (At least with my converter box, the included remote could only turn on and off the TV. It would only change channels on the converter.)

Most universal remotes only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the TV was programmed. So a new universal remote will probably control both the TV and the converter box. (Program the converter box using a code for LG or Zenith set top boxes if Insignia isn't listed. LG makes Insignia video products for Best Buy.) The remotes that are programmable by a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up.

A replacement remote for your TV is available here: http://www.mcmelectronics.com/partfinder.aspx?brand=&mdl=NS-LCD27&mode=part . An exact replacement remote for the converter box can be purchased at: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=13055197980390&smodel=NSDXA1&brand_pn=INSIGNIA_NSDXA1 . The manual for the converter box (as a PDF) is here: http://cbsdallas.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/insignia-ns-dxa1-manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Where can i find the method and codes to program my insignia digital converter remote for my symphonic tv

Here are the Symphonic TV codes. These are for a universal remote OK
SYMPHONIC
520 904 906
Hope this helps. As for the insignia, if you can not click the link copy and paste. What you need is on page 18, instruction on how to program your converter. Download if you lost it and print if needed. You will need Acrobat to view this. Good luck

Insignia NS-DXA1 APT remote control doesn't work


Set your TV input to match the input your have your Insigna connected to. Then run the Insignia setup. You are getting a distorted screen because you probably have the Insignia connected to channel 3 and the TV on channel 4.
