Question about RCA Analog (RCA) to Digital (VGA) Converter for PC (displays TV image on PC) (AD01)

RCA Converter auto shut down on TV with NO RCA Converter attached

Moved to a new house. I have two TVs, two different brands. I do not own a converter box. We can still get channels, because we live in the sticks and get broadcast TV from a translator system that did not convert to digital. I am consistently getting a message on our TVs that our RCA converter box is shutting down due to inactivity. Picture goes for a couple of seconds and comes back on. The catch- there is NO BOX connected to either TV and never has been. This didn't happen before I moved. I am completely baffled, unless this is broadcast to all customers from the translator. Ideas??

Ineed a code for tv converter box,What would the code be for a tv converter box ?


Different brand converter box will have differen tset-up codes. Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

Hello,I have purchased a digital converter to connect to my tv to receive local stations,My question is,What do i need to connect all 4 tv's that I have to the converter? or Do i need a converter for...


The converter has only one tuner, this means it can only tune one station or channel at a time. The output of the converter is usually a single coaxial cable jack. The output is generally a user selected channel - often Ch 3 or Ch 4. When you connect the output of the converter to the antenna input of the TV, you set the TV channel to match the setting on the converter (again, Ch 3 or Ch 4).

You could install an amplified splitter to split the output of the converter and run a cable from each TV to the splitter, more on this amplified splitter, later. Set all the TV's to the same channel as the converter output (Ch 3 or Ch 4) and you would be able to watch whatever the converter is tuned to. This means ALL the TV sets must watch the same channel. What is showing on one will be shown on all. This may not be a problem if you live alone and own 4 TVs. You could simply turn one TV off when leaving a room and turn on another when entering a new room. This will be a problem if there are two or more people in the house that wish to watch different programs at the same time. To accommodate everyone, you would need as many converters as there are different programs that are to be watched on different TVs at the same time - 4 would be a good choice to provide the greatest flexibility of tuning for every TV.. You would simply install the additional converters on the other TVs just as you did with the first TV.

If you wish to use a splitter to divide the output of the converter to several different TVs (or have a single antenna and want to send the signal from it to several TVs for that matter), an amplified splitter is highly recommended. A standard splitter only divides the signal and has no provisions to boost the signal from the antenna. The more ways a signal is split, the less signal there is to supply to the TV sets. The result is a snowy picture. An amplified splitter not only splits the signal the way a standard, non-amplified splitter does, but also boosts the signal from the antenna to each TV. This provides a much stronger signal to the TV which results in a better picture. Pick an amplified splitter that has enough output jacks (based on the number of TVs you wish to connect).

I hope this helps and good luck!

Switch to a powered DTV antenna.
Your analog antenna may be too far out of range to effectively pick up signal.

Magnavox DTV box


I would say you got a bad one. They have an auto-shutdown setting, but shutting off as soon as you power it on sounds like a defective converter. How long ago did you purchase it? There should be a 1 year warranty on it. If it is new, return it to the place of purchase. There is also a toll free number on the enclosure that will be able to replace it if it is still under the warranty.

Thanks for using Fixya.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

Want to continue to record on my VCR after digital hookup


You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.

I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.
