    I just hooked up our new TV, but when I use Autoprogram, when complete it only picks up one analog channel. We have Dish Network so I don't know why it isn't picking up digital. Our picture is not as good as what was in the store.

Any TV hooked up to a cable or satellite box can only "see" one channel...the set-top box (STB) converts the channel you are watching to (usually) Ch. 3 or 4. With cable you can split the input if your TV has 2 RF inputs, with a dish that won't work.

That's why the TV stays on Ch 3 and the STB changes to whatever you want to watch.

TV displays "no signal" with every input type we try. The only thing that works is the DVD. I even tryed it on a cable cord that was working from another TV


hello are you using a digital antenna, cable or satelite reception? you need to run your "set up" and scan for channels either automatically scan or manual scan, recomend a auto scan for all channels both digital and anolog, these tv will scan and save or store the channels but you need to run a channel scan first,
(even if your using a cable box or sat box)
back when we had the older anolog sets you could just plug it in and watch but with these new digital circuts need to scan and store the channels in before you can watch the broadcasts,, try that let me know what happens. hope this helps

Will a universal remote work on a insignia digital converter box?


doublecheck the paperwork for both the converter box and the universal remote. the universal may be too old to be used with your converter. look in the back of the universal's manual to see if your box's corporation has a code you can set.

My philips lcd digital tv says I am recieveing analog signals from a digital direct tv sat. How do I get my tv to change to accept digital signals?


First verify that the direct TV satellite box is set to receive and display digital stations. If you old set on the sat was analog, the box may not have been reset. You may have to contact you satellite provider. Next you will have to go to the TV menu and auto program/scan in the stations. This should pick up all the stations.

Not picking up Digital signal from box but can receive it analog


So many factors could be affecting your reception. Keep in mind that the digital signal is all or nothing, either you have a signal or you don't, with the regular signal you can pull in weak signals but you can't with digital. Your converter box when turned on will probably not pick up the standard signal. The distance from the digital signal and the direction the antenna is facing also will affect your signal.
Ok with that said you will have to clear the path between the broadcast signal and your antenna, I know this will be a chore but take your antanna out of the attic and put it outside as a test only, this dosnt mean you cant have it in the attic it will just be a signal test.
Once the antenna is moved, from the menu scan for channels and see what you get. Let me know and I can help further.

Converter box


Any Anolog tv should accept a converter box. Just set the tv to channel 3 or 4 to pick up the signal from the converter box.
