Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

1 Answer

CBS station is gone. Only shows instructions for converter box.

I am on air. no cable/satellite. I purchased 3 flat screen digital tv's. All other stations come in except 2 & 13. I live in San Bernardino, Ca. Will I ever see CBS again without having to pay for pricey tv service?

I live outside the Kansas City Missouri area. I was having problems receiving one station. I decided to raise my outside attenna to get better reception. In doing so, I totally lost reception on another station. I only moved it up about 6'. I had to move the attenna back down to get that station perfect again. I still cann't get the station I'm missing but I found out that moving the attenna up/down or side to side can make a huge difference. I live about 50 miles from the stations I receive. Good Luck.

HD Tuner


The Gateway GTW-P42M303 can display HD content. However, you will need a set-top box to get that content. The TV only has an analog tuner (NTSC or PAL, depending on the area where you purchased the TV). Thus, you will need to connect a digital-to-analog converter to get most over-the-air stations. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) Most of the common d-t-a converters only provided SD (480i) output. There are some HD tuner boxes available; you may have a hard time finding them.

If you have cable or satellite service, then you can get the HD programming package and view it on this TV.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Are you connected to a cable or satellite box? If not you will have to have an over the air digital to analog converter since TV stations now broadcast in digital format. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you..

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

Everything on the TV works EXCEPT live TV.


Please clarify a few things. Are you using cable TV, satellite TV or a TV antenna? If cable, are you using a set top box (and is it powered on) or does the TV convert the cable info. If satellite, is the set top box powered on? If off the air (antenna TV), can the TV receive the new digital signals and if not, do you have a digital converter box between the antenna and the TV?

Sony Wega TV --24F... does it need a converter?


No. all flat screens have converter chip built in.
If you are having problems getting channels, make sure you go to the settings, and broadcast settings, and make sure it is on AIR for regular tv, or CATV for cable.

This TV is analog, meaning there are no "straight digital" inputs, and the tuner itself is NTSC (analog), and not ATSC (digital). You will need a digital converter box to receive over-the-air (broadcast) digital television stations. This does NOT, however, preclude you from purchasing Digital Cable or Digital Satellite, and using the analog output on their converter boxes. The television will display high-definition images from those boxes and other sources.

Picture not clear when playing a recorded program from dvd


I had a similar problem with an Insignia converter box. This is confusing but . . . I was told by an Insignia person that you can only program the channel that you have on and cannot record a different channel. My output channel is 3. My roof antenna is attached to my converter box "From Antenna" jack. Attach the converter's "To TV (RF)" jack to your VCR's "Antenna Input" jack. Attach "Antenna Output" jack to TV "Antenna Input". You will see your programs on your output channel, but if your VCR is like mine, your VCR may not recognize anything but your output channel, no matter which station is actually showing on the TV. If I want to record a show on channel 7 while I'm gone, I have to make sure the converter station is on 7 and that I choose channel 3 as my channel to record. You cannot program shows to be taped on different stations unless you physically change it on the converter box. I put my VCR on "Record" and flipped the stations from one to the next from my converter remote control and I taped exactly what was on the screen from one station to the next. You cannot tape one thing and watch another. Clear as mud??? Hopefully, not.

You may have to purchase a new antenna to do that search for one that is specifically for digital reception and good for the distance from station to home. (Range rating)
