Question about RCA Dta800b1 Digital-to-analog Converter Box

1 Answer

Missed channels I live in the Kansas City, Mo. area. When I first got the converter it picked up all available channels. As time went on, more channels became available, so I re-scanned the channels. The box scanned to 58%, and wouldn't continue. I was told to remove the antenna in cable, then re-connect it. The box resumed scanning, but when it finished, it skipped over KSHB 41.1& KSHB 41.2. I re-scanned several times, to no avail. I would like to be able to watch these channels. HOW?

Those particular channels are not being detected because of antenna orientation or weak signal level. We have similar problems receiving digital channels 3, 6, 23, and 52 here in the Philadelphia area.

SOURCE: Magnavox converter box TB110MW9 shuts off repeatedly

Hi All,

Apparently, all of these devices do that, including mine. Magnavox is a Philips brand, and they have a long history of getting bad management in the way of otherwise good engineering. Having been an engineer at Philips, here is the solution (believe it or not, it worked for my converter): (a) disable the 'automatic shutdown' option in the menu. (b) unplug it. (c) drop it on the floor (but be slightly more gentle than the Dutch in the soccer final). (d) repeat until problem fixed. Took me three tries, now it works like a charm.

DVD players can have several outputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)

TVs can have several inputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)

Just use the correct tables to "match" the output to the input.

SOURCE: i need to know how to access menu or run channel scan on rca dta 800b1l converter box without the remote

There is not a way, unless you get a universal remote, scan for the code to control the box, and then get into the menu.
