    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.

How to turn on TV with insignia digital converter remote


You'll need to program your remote control for your TV. To do this, ensure that your TV brand is one that can be controlled by the remote (a listing is in the owner's manual). Turn on your TV, then press and hold the TV Power button on the remote and press the Channel (CH) ^ or v buttons one or more times until the TV turns off. I hope this helps.

Ambiuous Information out there


Hi,

I kind of think the people that wrote the manuals didn't bother hooking up a unit. Here is some help.

The converter box is nothing more then a tv tuner that picks up a digital signal and converts it into analog so your tv can view it.

The vcr, to record programs has to be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is broadcasting on) to record. The converter for the vcr will have to set to whatever channel you want to record from every time you use the vcr and left on as this is the only was the vcr can pick up a signal. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off.

If your tv converter box has digital pass through, all you have to do is turn the tv converter box off and it your tv should pick up the singal from your vcr when you play tapes. You also use this method to access the menu on the vcr.

Converter box


3/23/09 --- I don't understand why you would hook your converter box or antenna to your DVD Player. Converter box is only functional between an antenna and a vcr (and/or a TV). DVD Player hooks directly to TV (NOT thru a vcr, coding on dvd discs will screww up the signal and make it fade!) Good luck.

Lost the Sony remote some time ago now need to reach chan.#3


Due to the fact that you lost the remote, you will have to buy a universal one(lots of places have them) and you will have to program it to your TV, most come with a code book with them, follow the instructions, if that does not work most remotes have a search code feature on them, where you can turn the unit on and follow the steps to search for the code and you should be good to go.

Remote came w/coverter, no codes for Panasonic TV/DVD/VCR combo


Since you say the remote turns the box on and off properly, the control is probably working correctly. If you aren't seeing anything on the screen, you may not have the TV on the right channel (if you've connected it with an RF cable to the TV's antenna input jack). If you've connected the box using its video and audio outputs, you may not have selected the TV's video input.

As far as setting up the remote to work the converter box, that isn't necessary. If the remote is truly not working the box properly, and you have tried new batteries in the remote, you may have a bad remote or converter box and should take it back to the seller.

If the problem is setting up the boxes remote to work your TV, you may be out of luck. If you need to enter a brand code and your TV isn't listed, there is usually a code search function. The problem with universal remotes in general is that often they only give you control of a TV's basic functions but not advanced menu controls. The converter box remote may not be able to do more than just turn your TV on and off and control its volume. You may need to keep the original TV remote handy if you want to do things like adjust color levels, control closed captioning, or other functions like that.

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.

Remote Control


From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.


Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:
    1. Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
    2. Turn on the TV.
    3. While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.

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.
