Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

1 Answer

No Signal on Lubbock, TX channel 11.1 but receive all others

I receive all digital channels from Lubbock, Tx but 11.1. Channels 14.1,22.1 and 46.1 are weak but stay locked in and receiving signal most of the time. Channels 13.1, 28.1 and 34.1 have excellent signal and work great. Channel 5 (PBS) station is weakest station but works ok at times. Channel 11.1 will not go all digital until June 12, 09. I get no-signal on channel 11.1 at all times. I have an outside antenna (VHF/UHF) about 30 ft. high. I do get anolog pass thru on my magnavox digital to analog converter box but the analog quality is very poor. I don't believe it is a signal strength problem as there is very little snow in analog picture background. There appears to be a lot of interference in the analog signal. Lots of color lines and diagonal lines. Channels 14.1 and 46.1 also still broadcast analog and their signals do not have interference. They are weak and have snow in the background but I receive them ok. According to FCC maps channel 11 is weak here but should have sufficient signal to be received. I believe that their analog and digital carrier frequencies are causing interference to each other. Just my opinion as I have no way to check this. I would appreciate any assistance or information that you can come up with.

When the Government decided to make all stations go digital, most places we're telling about the change over. But what they forgot to mention to the ones like you that you may have to change your outside antenna. They make antenna just for picking up digital signal. So you may have to change that also. be Sure and check the cable going from the ant. to back of the converter box is in good condition or may have a break somewhere that could cause more trouble. If you see any bad places on the cable you may want to replace it now when you do the antenna.

I'm in Victoria, TX. I can receive digital channels 17.x, 19.x, and 25.x very well. I can not receive channels 25.x at all. Why not?


Dump the antenna. I live on the ranch just south of Victoria and am 20 mi from the station. Take a drywall screw and put it into the corner of the wall near the tv. Take the other end of the coaxial and stick it onto the screw just so that it doesn't fall off. Hang a hat over the screw so that it isn't an eyesore. It works. I get all my channels. I found this out by accident.

all functions of the radio are performed by the main IC 2816c . The frequency is controlled by this also and if it is blown you will loose your frequency and the problem that emits is in your statement.

I live in Victoria Tx. I can not afford cable or dish. I am able to recieve all 4 of the the number 25 channels. Why am I not able to recieve any of the three number 19 channes. All 19 and 25...


Channel 19 actually broadcasts on VHF channel 11 (approximately 201MHZ) and channel 25 actually broadcasts on UHF channel 15 (approximately 479MHZ). I know that sounds a bit weird but it has been done so that stations don't have to change there "call" channel number when we switched to Digital TV. Your digital converter box keeps track of this. This is important to understand because you need and antenna that is good at picking up both UHF and VHF signals. If you're not getting channel 19 it may be due to a poor VHF portion of your antenna. If your using a basic old set of rabbit ears for your antenna that has a loop in the middle then I might have a trick for you. Most rabbit ears have 2 telescopic antenna elements. Extend or collapse until each length is 14.7 inches long. (Which is a quarter wavelength at 201MHZ). You are effectively tuning (Optimizing) your antenna specifically for that channel 19. You may need to rotate your antenna a bit to find the best signal.

There are other factors which can hinder you receiving channel 19 but this is a good starting point. Let me know what type of antenna you have. Hope this helps.

Onkyo tx-sr702 sound cuts out when pausing, then starting a recording on DVR or changing HDTV channel


That would be a function of your Cable/DVR dropping its digital bitstream output, wouldn't it?

My Pioneer does the same thing when I switch channels on my cable box or ANY sources. The receiver has to resync with the new bitstream, buffer it, figure it out and sort out the audio channels. Sounds like normal operation to me.

I have no bbc1 or other main channels after re-tune on my TX-32LXD1


Try looking at the EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) and selecting one of the missing channels if it is showing on screen. If you can receive the broadcast then it means that your channel list has been rearranged into a different order and you will have to manually edit the list to get the programmes in the order that you need. If the channels are not there then try retuning again.

Ittermittent digital audio drop out on some channels


Did the issue ever get resolved. I have similar issues with a connection to Cox Cable HDTV and Onkyo TX-DX989. All sources (DVD Player) sound fine and not issues except channels 706 and 710 on Cox Digital receiver. I had Cox replace the HDTV receiver and the same issue occurs. I've tried optical audio and also the COAX audio ports with the same issue. The workaround I have found is to set the audio to "Other" on the Cox box, but the volume then has to be turned up quite a bit.
