Rabbit ears are not strong enough to pik up the digital signal. You need to buy a DIGITAL antenna. You can pick a powered one up at Wal-Mart, or any retailer for around 20 bucks. Once you have the proper type of antenna, go through the setup sequence again and then you will be in the "digital age". You will wonder why they didn't do this sooner!

Magnavox TB100MW9 DTV Converter repair


After a close-by lightning strike, my Magnavox TB100MW9
Digital TV Converter box stopped working. I took it apart and found a
shorted diode (the fat one on the power side of the board)
marked with the number SB340. From the NTE cross-reference
web site, I found a replacement diode, NTE586 (Si, Fast
Switching, Schottky Barrier Diode) that cost me $2.40 at
a local electronic parts store. I replaced the diode and
it works fine!

Magnavox DTV converter shows no signal


do you have your converter box hooked up to an antenea? If so, if you move the antenea, then you may have to reprogram the channels through the converter box. This happened to us. So, we played around with the antenea until we found the most channels came through and marked the area around the antenea (you can use tape, or if you do not care a permanet marker like us. Note our antenea sits on top of our tv.) We have not had any trouble since. We marked the place for the antenea, in case someone moves it or so we can try to get more channels when the final switch happens. We gain a lot of stations, but lost only one.

Hope this helps,
The Gordons :)
