Question about TV Receivers & DVRs
I purchased a Magnavox # E 175216 converter box from Walmart. After installing it the picture was fine, but the sound volumn was way down. Where I used to listed to the tv at say 9 or 10 now I need to crank it to at least 25 or more. Is this because I bought a "cheap" box or is this a common problem with converter boxes. Is there a way to correct this?
We have a cottage up in Maine and we purchased a Magnavox converter digital box, We cannot get the menu to come up and we cannot receive any channels.

I have a Zenith model , Actually TWO. BOTH of them are the same way. It makes No difference if the RF modulator output, or the Line output is used. The volume needs to be around 90% up on the TV to hear decent and this is with the internal volume of the converter turned all the way up! I got sick of this so I did some searching and found a kit that solved my problem. I actually built a Audio line level booster which actually works quite nice. The model is Velleman-Kit Model # K2572. About 17$ before shipping. This solution is if you are experienced in Electronics and want to build a board kit. I had to do as recommened and change the two input resistors to 100k ohm (Described in note in kit). You will also need a power supply to power it; a 10-30vdc transformer pack supply will work. I made mine. I know this is if you are a hobbiest which you may not be... so.... If you want to buy an already built product to fix the problem you can buy one on ebay for about 50$ ( Model TCC TC-780LC ) before shipping. Do a search in ebay for that model #. I can not make any claims wether it works because I have not tried it, but it does claim to do the job and it looks like it would. Good luck!
