You'll need to keep your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what channel you set the converter box. All your channel changing will be done through the converter using its remote control after that. If you change channels on the TV itself and go off channel 3 or 4, the TV will not get a signal and will show you that "no signal" message.

TV on video can't get air TV channels


Do you have an Digital signal to analog signal converter box? if not you need to one, all signals are broadcast in digital now and your TV can't directly receive them without a converter box.

CAN I connect 2 tvs.to one converter box and how.


If you're using a box that has an RF (antenna) output on channel 3 or 4 to the TV, you can insert a splitter and feed two sets. A splitter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_10.jpg

It takes the signal in on the single connector side, and splits it between the two output jacks on the other side. You can find splitters at TV retailers, Radio Shack, and even at Home Depot or similar stores in the electrical section. Run a cable from each of the output jacks to the antenna connectors on the two TV sets. Each TV will need to be tuned to the converter box output channel, and both sets will get the same program (whatever channel you have selected on the converter).

If the converter box has audio and video output jacks and the nearest set has an AV input, you can connect that set with the same kind of cable you use to hook up a DVD player (RCA plugs on the ends) and select the AV input to see the converter box signal. You would run a cable from the RF output connector of the converter to the second set's antenna jack. Then you wouldn't need the splitter, and the set using the AV inputs would get better quality picture and sound. Again, each set will get the same program as determined by the converter.

Hope this is what you need to get going. Thanks for using Fixya!

RCA DTA800 TV Converter Box I need TV codes for the remote to work. The TVs are a GE, phillips magnabox


Good day,
I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog.
The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well.
Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.

Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.

plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan.
When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.

No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.

If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.

Viewing separate Chanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.

More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started.
The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.

Receiving no signal with converter box


Where is the "no signal" coming from, the converter box or tv? If tv then unplug the dvd player and plug the plugs into the converter so the wires go from the converter into the rf modulator. set the tv up to watch dvds and try your channel scan gain. If it works then post again and we'll figure out the best way to connect the converter and dvd to the tv.

When on the digaital converter says no signal


Depending on type of antenna you have on the box the signal maybe too weak. But first try to lock channel 03 into your set. go to menu and add 03 where it has add/delete channels. If this still does not work select channel 04 and set your converter box switch to channel 4. This should do it.

No channels downloaded


The antenna must be hooked up to the converter box. The better the antenna, the better your reception will be.

Not everyone in the country will be in range of digital signals. Digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals do right now. It is possible (but unlikely) that you are not currently in range of any digital signals.

So make sure you are set up like this - Antenna--converter box--Television. Then scan for channels. You should still pick up any analog signals while the box is hooked up, you will just view them the same way you do now, by changing the TV station rather than the converter box station.

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

Hdtv converter box to vcr


Hi Drtrippy,

If I understand correctly, you are using your VCR for the actual tuning of the TV.

The converter box itself contains a tuner, so you should now receive extra channels available only to an HD tuner. You should try connecting your antenna as input to the converter box. Then output the signal from your converter box to the VCR. Your VCR may then remain connected to your projector.

You may simply think of this as if you are inserting the converter box between your antenna and your VCR, which should be currently connected to receive an over-the-air signal. Remember, as the tuner you will be using is in the converter box, you will need to change channels using the converter box, not the VCR.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
