Cannot keep all channels on tv

I have a magnavox digital converter box. When I scan south, I receive channels; then when I turn to scan west; I lose south channels, the same happens with other locations. How do I keep all channels?

When you say you "lose" channels, you probably mean there's no signal there anymore but they are still in the channel memory. This is normal if you have a rotatable antenna. You need to mark the rotator (or just keep a chart nearby) with the heading for each channel.

If you mean you're losing channels from memory when rescanning after turning the antenna, the only solution I can offer is to record the channels found (and their signal levels) after scanning a direction. Then change directions and rescan. See what new channels have been found, what have been lost, or how signal level has changed on common channels. Then you can manually add whatever you need, and you'll know what direction is best for each. It's tedious, but you should only need to do it once.

I have an Apex AT2402 TV and bought a Magnavox DTV Digital to Analog Converter box , and I only got 3 channels after the channel search. I tried it 2 more times with 2 different antennas I had and it


Digital signals don't come from antenna. They come from the internet, or from a digital satellite receiver.
Then when you get the digital signals, you have to pay the provider for the channels you want to receive. As long as your provider does not know and did not sell you any channel you wont be seeing one.

Converter Box Problem


If you are receiving digital signal and channel is fuzzy, something wrong. Only Analog signal is fuzzy. With Digital it is great picture or nothing. For channel 6, check to see if they are broadcasting in digital yet. If they are not, this is why you are not getting a signal. If they are broadcasting in digital, then you need a stronger antenna.

Channels


Depending on your location and the type of antenna. If you are on the converter box when you scan for channels, how many do you receive? If you go back to analog or the way you were set up before how many stations did you receive? Some stations have not gone completely to digital as of yet. Other stations are in process and are not to full power for digital as of yet. With the box you may have to rescan every week or so until everybody gets their act together.

Trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box


Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.
