Question about RCA Universal Remote Control

No antenna siganl strength

I hooked up the converter box to the antenna hookup in the wall (which I had the tv hooked up to before and got local channels). The converter box says it has no antenna strength and cannot find any channels. I have gone thru the manuel and checked how I connected the box to the tv and vcr and do not find a problem.

Need to know how to change and setup for use of antenna


Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerfulicon1.png the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.

  • 4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good ideaicon1.png to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
  • 5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
  • 6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.

    I am still trying to scan the air channels, I am hooked up to an antenna and can only get the Spanish channels. How do I get all the digital channels?


    Hi Tat2,

    First: If you do not have a cable hookup, if you are using an antennae, you should get a converter box.

    It handles the scanning, the decoding of sub-channels (I have four OPB channels), signal strength filtering. It's remote, controls both the box and your TV.

    It hooks up between your TV and antenna. Set your TV to channel 4, click the on button. The first time menu comes up, scans the channels and lets you know when its done. You'll find channels you never knew existed.

    They're easy.

    Best regards
    Mike

    Is my Hitachi 61uwx10b ultravision hd ready digital tv ready when they switch over to digital vrodacasting or will i need a converter box,


    This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

    Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

    If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

    Digital to analog converter box hookup


    You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

    No signal converter box.


    Why is this in the computer section?

    Anyway, don't exchange the box just yet! First, can you access the converter's menu? Because mine automatically comes up with the "no signal, call customer service" message, but I can access the menu fine -- so the hook-up is not the problem. If you can access the menu, let it autosearch for you, because mine can't be used until I do this. If you get the "weak antenna signal message", refer to the user manual to find out how to check your antenna signal strength; if it's in the weak range, you have to buy a better antenna, most likely from the official source: http://www.accessHD.tv

    You can always exchange the box and repeat the process. Getting the "no signal" message is a good indicator that you've hooked everything up right, especially if it's accompanied by a customer service number. You can email me at kalalkb@gmail.com and I'll try to help you troubleshoot the problem if you like. I'm up all night.

    DTV conversion concerns


    I just purchased a Magnovox converter at Wal-Mart with the coupon I ordered from the government program. Our TV is about 2 years old too and not HD. It has worked great. The reception and color is truly the best we've had in years. We live in the country about 50 miles from all the local stations and were told we would need a new antenna, so far the only channel we have problems with is the PBS. Not sure if it is antenna related or their signal strength. We don't have the problem until the sun comes up good. It has been great to get the additional channels that some stations have added. Hope this helps.
