Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs
I hooked up a magnavox tb110mw9 converter according to the instructions w/o a/v jacks. I get nothing. I have run the autoscan and no chnls or no sgnl found. sgnl strngth is 0. I get beautiful clear pictures of all available chnls in my area using only my vhs roof antenna. dstnc from tv twrs is appx 75 mls south with no visable mountain obstructions and no buildings. When i leave the cnvrtr bx hooked up to tv but turned off and chng chnls on the tv there is poor reception not crystal clear as it is w/o the box straight to antenna. i turned the antenna with the box turned on & watching the signal strength meter. the best strength reading was a 15 and only chnl it barely rcvd was OPB that was extremely distorted with pixellets and no audio. my antenna has been secured in this position aprx 15 - 20 ft above ground since 1975 never affected by gale force wind, snow, rain or surrounding trees. If it is picking up the analog signals with perfectly clear reception in this position, shouldnt it be the same for the digital signals? Please give me an answer soon, as I am running out of time. Do I have to raise the antenna? If so how high? Do I need to buy a different antenna? If so what kind?
Digital tv signals require a better antenna than we could get by with the old analog tv signal. You need a "fringe" rooftop antenna. I would try the $100 model from Radio Shack. Use only RG6 cable, and as short a run of cable as possible. As you are 75 miles from the broadcast station, you may need additional height on your antenna and/ or a signal booster. Visit antennaweb.org for additional information for your area. Antennas do become corroded after many years and need to be replaced. Point the end of the antenna with the smaller elements toward the broadcast station.

Make sure its set to antenna than have someone go up and turn while u seek the signal try a channel thats works good but not perfect than go from there. if not u have ur plugs backwords in the tv not the device.
