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

When I hooked the DTA800 to my RV atenna

I didn't get any signal. The system was working fine before I connected the converter. My understanding, I should be able to receive digital and analog if available with the box installed.

    After carefully hooking up the DTA800, the screen tells me there is "no signal".  It's a roof top anntena and works very well without the converter box.
    thanks for your help here

My understanding is that the Digital signal is weaker than the analog, so need a stronger antenna to pick up the digital signal, and MAY still not get any reception at all. Have you considered satellite for you RV? Won't need the converter at all then.

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.

I have a tb110mw9 converter "not getting all my channels"


if your channel was fuzzy in analog then you will not get it in digital because digital is pretty much all or nothing. I would try a an antenna with longer signal range.

I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
Good luck!

Hooking actual live coaxial from Cable Co. to Insignia Converter Box ...


Based on the specs that I have read I am going to say you cannot hook up cable to the converter. Best thing to do would be to call cable company that provides service there and see if it was turned off on the billing side they probably just didn't come out and disconnect from the pole. That might give you service but missing some features such as tv guide channel. Now some tv's have tv guide built into them and maybe in the move that feature on the tv was turned off it they were using it that way before. Here is what the specs say about that converter:

Use this digital-to-analog converter to convert digital TV broadcast signals to analog signals on analog TVs with antenna-based reception.

Connect tv vcr and dvd player to digital converter box


Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.

Electronic snare drum pad picking up tom tom triger signal ?


your right old and new technologies are all the same basic concept, a Piezoelectric transducer converts mechanical energy into an electrical pulse. Adjust/increase the cross talk (x-talk) setting on the module for your specific channel. this settings job is to disregard really small signals (ie. vibrations from the stand, other drums etc...), you may have to play the pad a little bit harder but it should work fine.

Converter box


the digital box has to hooked up the rca plugs on the bac of the vcr if you want to use the vcr (you will only be able to pick up channels throught input and the box will have be set on the channel you want to record. You need a switch to hook the vcr and dvd player both up. the atenna cord can be attached to the back of the convertor box then attached to the tv.

No freaking signal


Double check ALL your ant wire connections. Then reprogram the converter to check for stations again. If that doesn't work then reposition your antenna and reprogram again.
