Sound quality and Freeze up issues with Insignia Converter Box

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.

    I am using the Insignia converters for a small cable TV system and have observed the same problem. So far, the problem has been observed on different channels at different times. I'm not sure yet, but the freeze ups appear to be occurring on some type of schedule approximately every 2 weeks. I can't be sure but I don't think this is related to poor signal level because it has occurred on different channels at different times that have extremely high measured level as well as those with lower measured level. Does anyone know if the local broadcasters send out a signal of some type on a regular or irregular schedule that may cause the box to freeze up?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: INSIGNIA NS-DX-A1-APT remote won't work to install converter box

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.

Magnavox tv converter box some channels have no sound


When you program your HD converter, it searches for all available channels in your area and you may find, as I have, channels you never knew existed. As for the audio problem, some of the found channels may be so weak that all you get is the picture - no sound. You can delete the problem channels but they are likely to pop up again on your next programming run.

How do I hook up my old VCR to an insignia tv?


You will need a converter to record onto a VCR. I can't remember the when the FCC require VCR to have digital, but I know yours old enough it has an analog tuner. Take your antenna connection to the in on the converter box, then you can take the out from the converter box to the in on the vcr and finally take the out to tv to the tv. To record you have to have the vcr on 3 or 4 and use the converter box to do the channel changing.

Another way would be take the in to the converter and use RCA cables to the line in on the vcr, and line out to the to the tv. This will give you stereo sound.

WHY DOES THE VOLUME GO DOWN WHEN I USE CONVERTER BOX?


You will need to adjust the volume on the tv when using the box. The digital sound is different then the sound coming across on analog signal thus do not expect them to be at the same level. The box is not so dreaded, the picture quality is much better then what you get with analog.

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.
