Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

2 Answers

Can not get any chanels through the digital converter please help

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?
Thank you.

    in response to the plugs backwards on the tv: how can i have it backwards when there is only one going from box to tv? (I did switch the two on the box and result was as if it was totally disconnected) Re: turning antenna; i have done this turning (spinning slowly 360 degrees) and only found a 15 in signal strength which was only turning an inch from the current position. I didn't, however; change the height of the antenna. Is height of antenna a factor in finding digital signal?

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 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.

I have a Magnavox sdtv converter TB110MW9 the remote stopped woring. i now have a RCA RCR314WZ/RCR313BZ universl remote. Can't seem to program it. Please help if you can, send codes.

Some of the newer RCA universal remotes can handle STBs. Use code search to find something suitable. If a search through all codes contained in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Need code for a magnavox converter box using a one for all universal remote

Daphne, Try using auto code search feature, found on most universal remotes. Instructions should be in your manual. From one of the forums they suggested this. Place your tv on channel 3.
Point your GE universal remote at the converter box, press and hold the setup button until the red light remains lit, then press and release the DVR/AUX button. The red light will blink once.
Enter 0581 as the code, then press Power and the Converter box will turn on and your channels will pop right up.
Check the attached links,instruction,guides, read through them, as they have fixes to program remote. Good luck

We were given the TB110MW9 Digital TV DTV Converter Box for Analog TV but with no remote . we do have other remotes we've kept from our last box that also died.would we be able to use this re

I thought that model number looked familiar. The answer is a qualified yes. If you have a Magnavox or a Philips remote it should work. If you have a universal remote try to search for a code that will control the box.
