Question about RCA (DTA800B1) Video Converter

Open Question

DTA800B1 remote won't allow me to use menus, how do I reprogram?

I turned off RCA converter box, when I turned it on again the only thing it does is change channels and auto powers off after 4 hrs. I can't access menus, mute, or CC any more. How can I reprogram the remote. The manual doesn't explain this issue as far as I could see.

SOURCE: My Magnavox tb110mw9a converter loses programming randomly.

Badge #7067 is giving you a load of bunk. I have had one for 8 months and the only time I have reprogrammed it was when all TV was to go digital. Even when our power goes out the converter remains programmed.

I would keep calling back. Chances of getting the same guy is slim. Insist on a replacement.

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.

Can the rca dta880 record without the remote


Unfortunately, the RCA DTA800 does not allow you to access the record functions without the remote. You can change channels and turn the converter box on and off from the unit's front panel. However, you may be able to get a replacement remote from the manufacturer here: https://rcaav.com/shop/video-remotes/ . Replacement remotes are $10. Click on the select options button then choose Home Video and the model number in the two drop down menus.

Before you order though, check which version of the digital converter box you have. The available remote is for the DTA800B1. An alternative option is to find a universal remote that has codes for converter boxes. (This is a rare feature though. You'd need to check the code finder/code lists for that remote.)

I hope this helps.

Channel change buttons on the TV set will only go to 44 and 50 I need 03 for converter box.


If you cannot change the rf frequency on the tv set to 03 or 04, there is no way you can get the converter box to work with that set..

Sorry.

I have an RCA TV converter box, model DTA800B1. I don't have the box or instructions, I am attempting to conneect it to an RCA TV with a built-in DVD player. I would appreciate the code that the TV...


There are a lot of possible RCA TV codes programmed into the DTA800B1 remote.
Try the following three digit codes: RCA 000, 001, 005, 072, 073, 074, 075, 076, 077, 078, 135,
138, 140, 144, 150, 156, 159, 162, 163, 169, 171, 178, 229, 246, 249, 260, 274, 275, 293, 302 in order.

To program the remote. Turn on your TV manually and press PGM (to the left of the zero in the number pad section). The LED should light and stay lit. Type in the first 3 digit code and press OK (in the center of the arrow keys near the top). See if the gray volume up/down keys work to change the volume. If it doesn't work press PGM again and enter the next code.

Note that the converter box remote will only turn on and off, switch the input from Channel 3 or 4 to AV in, adjust the volume and mute the TV. It will not control any of the DVD functions. Your original TV remote will not control the converter box.

The manual for the DTA800B1 is available here: http://www.1800customersupport.com/productdocuments/DTA800B1_RCA.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Find the user guide for your universal remote and use the RCA cable tv/satellite codes, and one should work for your RCA DTA800B1 converter box. My Sharp Aquos remote liked the RCA satellite code.
