Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs
Purchased at Radio Shack. Cannot program the remote to work. No way to go through set up without remote.
Since you say the remote turns the box on and off properly, the control is probably working correctly. If you aren't seeing anything on the screen, you may not have the TV on the right channel (if you've connected it with an RF cable to the TV's antenna input jack). If you've connected the box using its video and audio outputs, you may not have selected the TV's video input.
As far as setting up the remote to work the converter box, that isn't necessary. If the remote is truly not working the box properly, and you have tried new batteries in the remote, you may have a bad remote or converter box and should take it back to the seller.
If the problem is setting up the boxes remote to work your TV, you may be out of luck. If you need to enter a brand code and your TV isn't listed, there is usually a code search function. The problem with universal remotes in general is that often they only give you control of a TV's basic functions but not advanced menu controls. The converter box remote may not be able to do more than just turn your TV on and off and control its volume. You may need to keep the original TV remote handy if you want to do things like adjust color levels, control closed captioning, or other functions like that.
