Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV

1 Answer

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT conversion advice channel, which comes in very snowy. What can I do to solve the problem

Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.

DEAR TEAM! I AM 82 OLD MEN AND MY BEST FRIEND IS MY OLD TV. NOW MY DIGITAL STREAM BOX 9900 DOES NOT WORK, BECAUSE LED IS GREEN . HOW I CAN FIX THIS PROBLEM. NAUM. MY E-MAIL is NAUMZIS@VERIZON.NET


It sounds that your digital stream box have to be re-tuned. If the tuning is out, this kind of fault can occur. just do a hard reset to this box, before doing a re-tune. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the device from AC mains wall socket, and then replug it back after 15 minutes or so. The device will reset itself. If you do not know how to re-tune it, just download its user manual, and refer it. Download it from this link. https://cbsdallas.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/radio-shack-digitalstream-dtx9950.pdf

Your remote is only able to control TVs and DVD players. It will not control your DTV Converter Box.

Hook up analog vcr to hd tv


You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.
