I have a Insignia TV set and have attached the RCA model DTA800B1 box. I have tried to program the remote several times using all of the codes provided. The remote will work with the box but will not control the TV. Is there a code or method I can use to get the remote to work with the TV?Val

Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?
If you disconnect or power off the converter box does the hiss go away?
If you connect a VCR or DVD player does it still have the hiss? We
need to isolate what source is causing the hiss if it is from the set or
if it is from the converter box.
When you turn the volume control down on the set, does the hiss
reduce in level? If mute stops it, it should reduce in level as you
turn the volume down. Then turn up the sound level control on
the converter box whether its a manual control or by remote. If you
can get a combination that minimizes the hiss and gets higher sound
level from the programming that may cure it.
I am not familiar with the converter box you are using. Are you using
Audio/Video cables from it to the set or is it coming out with coaxial cable
and used on a channel? If you are using a very old set with a tuner input
perhaps the fine tuning is out of adjustment.
The Insignia is-tv040919 is a Cytron and the code is 11326. But no Comcastmultifunction
remote contains that code -- so you cannot enter it manually and the
991 search function will not find it. I discovered the make and code by
the serendipity of having a cable box with a multifunction remote and
several DTAs with the small, black two function remotes. I first installed the Insignia on a DTA
and the remote programmed quickly. I just moved that tv to the room
with the cable box with the multifunction remote and mayhem ensued. I got an $8
RCA 3 function remote today and it's working great on the Comcast cable box, a DVD player and, drum roll please, our old friend the is-tv040919.
On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.
