Can't really say my problem is solved Called the 1-800# and spent more than 1 hr. talking with various people and the consensus is that the Box is defective. Common sense and no real knowledge of electronics told me that before I ever called.
Solution - UPS will pick up the packaged Box between 8AM and 7PM today - very specific time!!!!
I will have a new one in 6-8 wks and by that time I will have NO TV reception. Asked if they could possibly put a RUSH on the order but that's like asking if I could get an invitation to the Inauguration!
Lots of frustration for purchasing an inferior product.

Thanks for your concern and prompt response

Have a Philips/Magnavox remote that's already programed to the television, how do I hook my Philips remote to magnavox converter box and know codes/instructions to turn box on


If your Philips/Magnavox remote is pre-programmed, try pressing a device button other than TV and see what happens. If your remote is universal, you can use code search to find something that will work.

Start by turning on your Magnavox converter box. The switch is on the right side. Turn on your TV. If the box has been connected correctly to your TV, you may see something ...BUT you cannot perform setup or any other important functions without the Magnavox remote. A universal remote, unless it specifically includes Magnavox converter control capability, will not work

My Magnavox converter box wont pick up chanel 10 here for some reasion says no signal.works ok on all of the other chanels. Now if you have the orginal remote you should be able to go into the menu and go to add/delet and add that chanel to the scan if it has been deleted for some reasion.
