    Have Insignia digital converter box. on-off button does nothing; instructions say to push up-down arrows to find the tv code. nothing works.

  • SunnyRainbow Feb 18, 2009

    I have an INSIGNIA model NS-DXA1-APT. I hooked up everything correctly per ops manual.

    The installation guide appeared on my t.v. screen: "Welcome" blah blah blah plus a "Next" tab with a right-facing arrow. However, the remote control's right-facing arrow doesn't result in progressing to the next screen. The remote doesn't work at all and consequently I can't activate the converter box. I've tried four different, fresh batteries in the INSIGNIA's remote, proving that it's not a battery problem.

    Then, because page 16 of the user guide says a universal remote can be used to control the converter box, I unsuccessfully tried that. One problem is that my brand new universal remote doesn't list "converter box" as a component, but nonetheless I tried on various attempts to enter "TV" and "CBL (cable I presume)" as the component. Still wouldn't work.

    I bought TWO Insignia converter boxes (same brand as Lucky Goldstar/LG and Zenith, by the way) and same failure. Are their remote controls factory defective? I have no t.v. reception, thanks to Insignia. HELP!!!

Hold down the TV power button then start pressing the channel up button untill TV turns off. May require many channel up presses.

NEED CODES FOR RCA CONVERTER BOX TO PROGRAM TV TO REMOTE


Good day,
I might be missing something here, but if YourTV has the basic controls on the TV itself, such as on/off volume, and channel select, then just turn on tv, and set it to channel 3.
Use your converter box remote to scan for channels, and other options it has as needed.

RCA DTA800 TV Converter Box I need TV codes for the remote to work. The TVs are a GE, phillips magnabox


Good day,
I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog.
The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well.
Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.

Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.

plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan.
When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.

No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.

If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.

Viewing separate Chanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.

More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started.
The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.

Magnavox converter box TB110MW9 shuts off repeatedly


Hello,

Looks like you got a bad converter. I have the same kind and it is a pain that you can't use the remote to also control the TV. It will turn itself off after 2 hours by itself if you do not change the options, but the symptoms you describe are beyond consumer repair.

Do you still have the manual? There is a toll free number to contact them and ask for a replacement. If you do not have it I can provide it tomorrow. (I am not at home right now.) Of course you can only get one of the same converters.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu


http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/support-files/ns_dxa1_manual.pdf

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box


I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.
