Question about Hitachi 57F510 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Defective remote? A Techie friend set up the DTA800 for me & it was working ok for 3 months, I clicked on the info button, & the whole thing got messed up. Now nothing works, I tried reprogramming it & I cant get anything to work. The remote w/ new batts wont turn on the TV--is it supposed to, or only after it is programmed to the converter box? I dont have a clue what to do next. I bought this @ Walmart & no one there can help me. Should I return it? have there been any problems others have had w/ these Converter Boxes being defective?

    you cant even reach anyone@ the RCA1800 to get help w/ setting up their converter box. What brand do you recommend as being more reliable than the RCA?

If you are past your warranty, you can call RCA themselves at 1-800-506-5746 and they can sell you a new remote for your box (model# DTA 800) for $20.00 including shipping and handling.

Whereas I used to have at least several friends listed on my Facebook Home page (including two of my sisters), now there is only one. When I tried to search for friends from those I email frequently...


Please check the following settings.

1. Go to control panel and open internet options.
2. Click on connections tab on the top.
3. Click on the button says LAN settings.
4. Make sure none of the options should be checked.
5. Click on ok and ok again.

If this doesn't solve the issue then please download the following anti malware tool and run a scan.

Cannot control Vip222 with sling classic

I have read elsewhere that Slingboxes required the Dish Network receivers to be set to Primary Remote Address 1.

To try a fix:

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the Primary Remote Address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates the channel to which remote control 1 is configured.

If the Primary Remote Address of your Dish VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your slingbox remote control per the instructions in the Slingbox documentation.

I have a ILO TV and need the codes for a RCA DTA800 converter

Already found solution with codes from Orian that worked.

Digital TV Converter keeps shutting off

The DTA800 has a Power Saver feature that turns the unit off after 4 hours if it is idle (no volume or channel changes).

Press MENU button, press #5 (Setting/Configuration), press #3 (Power Saver) Select OFF to de-activate this feature (no Power Saver).

This is covered on page 11 of the DTA800 user manual.
