Question about Televison & Video

Have an Insignia (NS-DXA1-APT). Have tried 3

Have an Insignia (NS-DXA1-APT). Have tried 3 different antennas. The current one is outside and is elevated over 20' high. Live in the middle of a major metro area. When the television is first turned on, the picture is clear. However, leave it on for 30 seconds to 5 minutes and the picture deteriorates fast on every station even though the signal strenth is shown as good. The picture deterioration includes horizontal striping where you can make out the picture to complete failure including audio failure.
Is the converter box defective? Or is this 10 year old GE television just not compatible to digital airwaves?

Sounds like your TV has issues with aging capacitors causing what is known as 'retrace'. May be time for a new TV since repairs may exceed the value of the set. Plus the Picture tube is 10yrs. old as well.

Connect up another tv and see if it is the tv or where you live.if the tv is the culprit then you have a defective tuner in the tv and is probably is not available.

Since Insignia and LG share compatible codes for digital-to-analog converters, review your remote control's manual for LG VCR codes as they should work to control our converter.

Coaxial cable works but not RCA


You have a DEFECTIVE box. There is no 'lock out feature on the Insignia. If your cables are ok, and you've tried it on another TV, then its the box.

Is the LG DTT 901 the same as the Zenith DTT 901


I don't think there's an actual LG DTT 901. They make the digital converter boxes for Zenith (DTT 901) and Insignia (NS-DXA1-APT). Look at this chart:

Insignia NS-DXA1 APT remote control doesn't work


Set your TV input to match the input your have your Insigna connected to. Then run the Insignia setup. You are getting a distorted screen because you probably have the Insignia connected to channel 3 and the TV on channel 4.

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu


http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/support-files/ns_dxa1_manual.pdf

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.
