Question about RCA (DTA800B1) Video Converter
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.

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.

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.
