A Magnavox DTV TB110MWG was hooked up through an amplified antenna and the DTV burned up. Was the DTV defective or is this hookup not possible?

If the input of the tb110mwg was "overdriven" like though an external amplifier; then it IS possible to burn up the receiver.

More than likely you just bought a bad unit. Then again, I would not try to amplify the input signal to the Magnavox unit. This is just not a good idea.

I just hooked an antenna to my sony bravia and it only picks up a few digital channels. I have two other Tvs hooked to the same antenna and the both pick up so many more channels. What could be the pr


i think the 'front end fet' or channel fet has failed
this amplifies the incomming antenna signal
however is the center pin of the antenna plug on the tv loose
inside the tv is a metal box this is attached too
it changed the UHF signals to a lower frequency range called an IF
the UHF signals are normaly have a path like this
antenna>>safety >>>amp>>mixeramp>>output to DTV decoder etc

the amp bit or connection to the tv is wrong
as its working quite well and gets like 2 channels

look inside the socket on the tv and examine it carefully for any bits of wire
or as i say loose connections
may just need to be soldered inside the can to reconnect the center pin

it will still give like 2 3 channels as the gap caused by the bad solder joint
will still allow some RF accross
so... its either a gubbed UHF RF amp or a broken connection or a short ... so...

NO SIGNAL on Magnavox TB100MW9 converter


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!

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42


If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

Converter box


The cable that goes into the TV sould come from the VCR output to TV plug.
The antenna input to the VCR should come from the antenna or DTV converter box.
The signal passes through or loops through the VCR.
If you hve a manual the connections are on pages 14 an 15.
Let me know if there are any problems and a time you might be hooking this up.
