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

1 Answer

I have had 2 converter boxes from the begining and now both have decided not to work. I tried to rescan, bought new batteries, repostioned the anntenna and nothing works. When I tried to rescan, nothing happens. The TV just stays on the one and only channel I can get now, instead to the five I use to. What can I do to fix this problem?

You need to check your antenna strength, this is done through the digital converter box. Those channels may have lowered their broadcast signal and your antenna cannot pick them up anymore. You may need a outdoor antenna to pick up the channels. These can be purchased at any home improvement store. There is no such thing as a digital antenna. They are broadcasting digital signal instead of analog over UHF stations instead of VHF in most markets.

Ok This is what I found out and hopefully found your solution..
Have you heard of Double Rescan?
The Federal Communication Comission Designed a Process called double rescan.
Double Rescanning erases and thenreprograms the channels in the converter box an digital TVs memory.
To Double Rescan, you will first need to disconnect the antenna from the converter box or antenna.
Then disconnect the converter and or digital tv power supplies from the wall. Wait a minute before plugging them back in. The antenna should still be disconnected.
With the antenna disconnected run the channel scan function on the coverter box or digital tv. When the scan completes you will have completely removed any channel data the converter box or digital tv, had in its memory.
Now it's time to rescan for real.
Do this by reconnecting the antenna to the converter box or digital tv and running the channel scan function again.
Thus the double rescan is born.
If the double rescan doesn't work, then try some tips and tricks to get your converter box up and running..I will have to look up the url again that has the tips and tricks...
If the double rescan doesn't work let me know and I will look up more options..
I really hope this works..
