Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs
After installing the converter the sound quality on my TV has been degraded. The TV volume is just below halfway to help minimze the hissing background sound when I mute the sound on the coverter remote. At that position I have to, on some broadcasts, have the volume on the converter box all the way up in order to hear what's being said. The volume when commercials come on jumps up and some other broadcasts are much louder than others, and I have not touched either volume control.
Second, on 4 separate occasions over a 8 day period the picture has frozen on the TV. You still hear the broadcast sound as normal, but in order to get the picture back I have to unplug the converter box at the outlet and plug it back in. When the picture freezes up a bunch of computer text fills up about 80% of the screen with jargon I can't understand.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

Sounds like the remote sensors aren't working. Since you purchased them at Best Buy, Geek Squad should be able to test them for you at no charge.
The conversion date has been moved to the middle of June now by the government a few weeks ago. You have some more time to get them working.

According the Insignia DTV Converter Box instructions (pg. 3), you can use the manufacture codes for LG or Zenith to program your remote control (http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/Insignia_NS-DXA1-APT.html)
Find the appropriate codes for your universal remote control on the following websites, and follow the manufacturer’s programming instructions:
Toshiba CT-90037: http://remotes.com/remotes/documents/Toshiba/CT-90037.pdf
Sony RM-V301: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-remote.pl?mdl=RMV301&LOC=3
Or go to one of these sites that provide codes to several manufacturers.
I hope this helps!

Look on eBay, there are people selling spare remotes, have her pick one up now, because if she waits, they will probably not be available. So far, there are no universals that I know of that work with these, in the future it is possible.
