Magnavox converter box and tv preset channel

I set up the box for my mother and it worked great. She accidently changed the channel on the tv from 3 to 13, now she can't set it back. I live out of state and don't have a manual. She has no picture/snow...what does she need to do?

I have installed a converter box we have a rooftop antenna, now I cannot record, it does not seem to find channel 9.1, 12.1 etc only 9, 12 etc I went from antenna to converter to DVD MWR10D6 to TV. My tv...


If you have the converter connected to the recorder by composite or s-video(line inputs), you will need to specify which jacks from within the setup menu of the recorder. There are 2 sets of line inputs into the recorder, so you have to select the right ones. They are called L-1 and L-2. The L-1 jacks are in the rear and the L-2 jacks are in the front. The channel selection should also be on L-1 or L-2. If you are using the
RF input(fat cable) to the recorder, you should have the recorder on the channel number that matches the output of the converter (channel 3 or 4). The converter RF output is selected by a switch in back of the converter or by the setup menu of the converter.

Menu path for setting L-1 or L-2 inputs:
Setup > General Setting > Video > Video Input > L-1 or L-2 > Video In or S-Video In

I bought the magnavox and all my channels are


Check the converter box. Many have a volume setting that is usually set very low at the factory. On the remote control for the converter check to see if there are volume buttons. If so, change the converter box volume higher, to a level that makes the TV audio level "normal", then use the volume control on the TV for adjustment as you watch. If you set the volume on the converter box too high, you may get some distortion in the audio from your TV. So adjust the converter box to find the proper output from your TV without distortion.

Converter box connection


You need to get a 75-ohm to 300-ohm transformer, also called a "balun". Radio Shack sells them and you may also be able to find them at retailers who sell TV antennas. It's a small cylinder with a threaded connector at one end for the cable from the converter, and a flat wire with two terminals for the TV connection. Connect the terminals under the "VHF" screws on the TV, put the set on channel 3 or 4 depending on your converter box setting (most are on 3 out of the box) and you're good to go. On a set of that age, you might need to tinker with the fine tuning adjustment a little for the best picture from the converter box.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

I assume you are attempting to connect another device to the set.
Selection of the output channel is normally accomplished from the external device, not the set.

How to connect my dvd & vcr with the converter box


Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player 2) Separate VCR 3) Digital to Analog Converter box 4) Analog TV 5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
