The Magnavox 27mdtr20/17 is a standard def. television produced in 2003 by the Philips-Magnavox Corporation. This particular model was conceptualized long before DTV was an option, and much further before Digital Television Broadcasts were considered a viable option for our current current communications problems.

You will need a DTV box IF:
A) You use an antenna (roof top or otherwise) to watch television

You will not need a DTV converter box IF:
A) You subscribe to cable services, either analog or digital
B) You subscribe to satalite services

For more information on the reasons behind the DTV transition, as well as getting valuable cupons from the federal government to help subsidize the cost of a DTV box, please visit this site:

I hope this helped,

My manavox tv dvd/vhs unit is hooked up to a converter box. All I had to do was turn on the converter box and then the tv. It was working just fine untill I cut if off one day, instead of leaving it on...


  1. Try unplugging the converter box from the power, and RCA or Coax connector. Reconnect the power and RCA or Coax connector. Try turning it on.
  2. Look for a reset button. May be a small hole with a button inside, if you find one use a paperclip or similar to press it.
  3. Try the converter box with a different TV.
  4. If this doesn't fix the problem, replace the converter box.

I have no remote for the tv Sylvania 6313ce 13" TV/VCR. I am trying to program a rca remote for it so I can change the channel to 3 so the converter box will work, how do I do that


This particular TV may have the same code as a Magnavox,Emerson, Funai ,or Zenith. You will have to look in the remote control manual for these codes. This TV was put together by other manufacturers. And in many cases they program these to their origin! Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

No picture but have sound


Make sure your not trying to watch a high def channel, you will get sound but no picture if tuned to a high def channel on a non high def input or cable box. Try a vcr or dvd player connected to the unit to varify the picture tube has not gone out.

Digital TV Converter Box


I have a Panasonic TV with built-in VCR, I had Comcast put in a converter box and was given instructions on how to set up the system to record my wife's programs, I had to select the program (in advance of scheduled time) to be recorded through the TV & converter box to the VCR. Next styep- select "Show" and I received a menu the first of which was "R" I clicked the "R" and a menu for selecting Repeat record start/stop times appeared Click OK and was then directed to to set up the VCR according to Panasonic VCR instructions. Worked for a day then the "R" menu on the converter box disappeared. Both the VCR and TV had to be set to Ch 3 to get it to work, But that's history. When it quit working ("R" menu), I had Comcast come get their box . PS The tech who showed up to pick up the converter box knew nothing about any "R" (record) menus except on the most ecpensive converter box. That cinched my decision, Oh Wel!. Sign me Tom with less trash to watch.

My tv don't work


open the small hatch next to where the power cord enters the back of your t.v. using a phillips screwd you driver. There is a small fuse there that may be blown//careful not to touch anything and remember that even if the unit is unplugged their are circuits inside that will still store a high voltage charge.
