SOURCE: trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box

Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

SOURCE: DTV Converter

The DIgital signal coming out of the conveter box cannot be recorded with a vcr, as they are analog. I am currently using a switch & switching between analog (rabbit ears) & digital conveter box, which I purchased at Walmart with the government coupon, for $10.00 -had to rig a UHF antenna ($45.00) up on my roof to pick up the digital signal, which dosn't travel as far as the old analog signals. With this switch I can record TV programs in analog, or switch to digital to watch programs. I can record 1 while watching something else. but after Feb. 17, the switch will be useless. I will need to buy a DVR recorder to record any programs at all. Since I can't afford cable TV, I certainly can't afford a DVR! I personally don't like this government-mandated switch to digitsl, as not everyone can afford to take advantage of the new digital signal. My current problem is, for some reason my universal remote (or any that I can find) won't program for my Magnavox converter box!

SOURCE: DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3

I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

SOURCE: I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter

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.

Want to run my dtv receiver through new digital converter box.


You will not be able to record local station from a DTV converter connected thru a directv receiver unless there is a a/v input on the directv samsung receiver. Also check the user manual for this receiver if recording from an external source such as a DTV converter box is possible. The answer to seperating the DTV converter box from the directv samsung receiver is possible if your tv has multiple inputs. Try connecting the DTV box to the RF input and the directv samsung box to an a/v input then change inputs using the tv remote. you will need an av cable (yellow/ red/white) for the directv box and a rf jumper cable for the DTV box.

Trouble programming Universal Remote to a DTV Converter Box...


Not a complete solution, but, around the last page (pg. 14) of your converter box manual there are codes listed for universal remotes. I happen to have a Philips remote that is listed. My code to control my dtv box is 0354. It appears that they have all codes listed for all Radioshack model universal remotes. I would suggest getting a Radioshack remote for Your "Digital Stream" (Radioshack) dtv 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.

Programming Quasar VHQ940 for DTV converter box


I assume you're trying to record from the DTV box. You will have to set the DTV box to play through channel 3 then tell the VCR to record channel 3. So basically the VCR always THINKS it's recording channel 3, but in reality it's recording whatever channel the DTV box is on. You will be unable to used timed recording unless you leave the box on whatever channel it is you're wanting to tape.
