    I think they did it just to get you to PAY for the service that we chose in the 1st place and make the initial investment, now we have to PAY twice!!

    is there a fix for the loss of guide plus?

  • cupcakegr Feb 02, 2009

    after the analog to digital update takes place will the Guide Plus come back?

  • Anonymous May 18, 2009

    I can't get guide plus to work anymore anyway, but I have not converted to digital and have no intentions of doing so. The company, comcast, does that somewhere so why can't they still send the over the air signal for the update? Can someone really explain this.

Mine stopped mid-
December. I used the old reliable 99999 as my zip code, turned off the tv for an hour, turned it back on, entered my correct zip code and was patient. Today, the 15th of January, it popped back up. I have a feeling that it is all due to the switch over. I think different cable companies are setting things up and the gude was lost during that time. Maybe if you are patient, it will pop back up also.

The Guide Plus data that has been transmitted to your TV has changed. This is due to the broadcast industry having to switch from analog to digital transmission.

This change is because the FCC wanted to free up frequencies for civic reasons. The police, fire, and other emergency related two way radio coordination. If you are receiving your signal via antenna please post a reply and I can help you with getting your signal converted to digital.
Unfortunately your current system is not compatible with the nation wide switch to digital.
You can thank the Bush administration for the way the conversion was handled.

My on screen TV guide no longer works, and my TV keeps losing time (between 10 and 20 minutes). I'm not sure how to fix this. Is this a hardware issue or a settings issue? Has someone else had prior...


Do you have cable TV? Many Cable TV companies have recently (over the last year or two) quit sending TV Guide data. You can get it through an external antenna connected to the TV's antenna input if you are within range of an ABC or NBC and a PBS affiliate for the clock auto set.

But if you still have TV Guide service, some of these have failed circuit boards for the TV Guide, ( usually shows a complete black screen when you turn it on or hit guide button.

Guide plus on my rca p52937 tv


You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.

Rca tv my guide plus has quit working


The guide plus needs to reset itself over night. But as long as you are only connected to cable it will not allow for it to reset. You need a two way splitter the cable company signal will go in one side and the outside antenna or what ever you were connected to before cable will go on the other connector. The single side connector will go to the tv. Where the splitter says 'in' you will actually be using it as out to the tv. Where the splitter says 'out' you will be using as in for the cable and the other antenna. Guide Plus is built into your tv and needs the tv to be off to reset over night.

Guide Plus on RCA television


My guide quit working also on my RCA 61" big screen and I called the cable company and he said something about the encryption data had changed and I needed to call RCA to find out what to do and the whole time trying to sell me a converter box. It is the cable company's fault or the guide wouldn't have put that message up to start with. We all need to call the FCC!!!

Hooking actual live coaxial from Cable Co. to Insignia Converter Box ...


Based on the specs that I have read I am going to say you cannot hook up cable to the converter. Best thing to do would be to call cable company that provides service there and see if it was turned off on the billing side they probably just didn't come out and disconnect from the pole. That might give you service but missing some features such as tv guide channel. Now some tv's have tv guide built into them and maybe in the move that feature on the tv was turned off it they were using it that way before. Here is what the specs say about that converter:

Use this digital-to-analog converter to convert digital TV broadcast signals to analog signals on analog TVs with antenna-based reception.

Called the cable company..they said they don't block the signal. sooooo..

first..i unplugged the tv from the power source, and unplugged the cable from the wall. left both off for an hour, and reconnected power and cable.

entered the guide set up...changed the zip code from the area where i actually live to the zip code of the cable provider for my area. here on maui, there is only one provider.

used the editor in guide plus to turn on and off the channel line-up according to the published channels listed in my area tv guide.

Lost Satellite reception


If its raining, that will cause you to lose satellite reception.

If that is not the problem, then do this: turn off TV & satellite. Wait 5 minutes. Power back on. Most of time this will fix it by itself.

If neither of those do it, unattach your satellite cable from back of satellite box. Power everything off. Wait 5 minutes. Now reattach your satellite cable. Power everything on. It should search for you sat and find it. Let me know if this works.

If none of those work, then I would call the sat company for help.

Poor screen resolution and unable to get channel guide.


The channel guide is a service just like closed caption. Rumer has it that it's not going to be around for much longer. The only fix is to unplug set ..wait awhile till memory loss occurs...plug back up and do a setup. Nothing in the TV will cause partial guide. Weak signal could and cause fuzzy picture too. Complain to cable company. But brightness problem is something else.
