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

2 Answers

Finds no channels

The converter didn't find any channels after scanning in manual and auto. I saw someone respond saying the The converter is for over the air signals only, but I'm not sure what that means. Plugging the cable from the wall to the tv does not work. Do I need bunny ears too? I didn't think that was necessary. Please help.

The box is a converter to allow an older TV to be used with the new digital TV broadcasting that went into effect in June. It converts off-the-air DTV signals (that is, the broadcasts from local TV stations in your area that go from their antenna over the air) to a standard channel 3 or 4 so you can watch on an analog ("old-fashion") TV. The converter needs to be used with a suitable antenna (rabbit ears or rooftop) to pick up those broadcast signals.

A DTV converter does not work as a cable converter box. If the cable you're hooking up is providing cable service, you'll need the cable company's box to get the programming.

The tv keeps saying run auto channel scan


I have run the auto scan many times and it never finds any channel. I found that you have to put it on the HDTV, PC, AUDIO channels in order to watch or connect anything on the TV. Try doing that.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

PVS31170Si Trutech TV Is this digital?


I have this model. I believe it is digital because the auto channel select finds numerous (a few hundred) cable channels (I have Comcast cable in Houston, TX) at channel 69 and above, e.g., 77-324, etc. I believe that analog tuners won't do this.

Does anyone have a manual for this TV? I'll pay to have a copy made.

Toshiba D-VR650KU can't "see" digital channels


On the Notification screen with Cable highlighted I found that left clicking on Cable gave a drop down menu with TV on it for selection. The manual says that while Cable is highlighted, use the up or down arrows to get TV to be an option and then select it and Yes and enter. Hope this helps. I have other problems with my monitor on Line Out, the screen oftens turns blue indicating low or no video using Line 1 or 2 inputs.
