Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Recording I have the NS-1DRVCR Insignia, but no cable or satellite. We have an antenna in the attic to receive local television stations. So there is no tuner. Is that why I can't record TV programs on my recorder? The box says the unit "records from TV, cable or satellite tuner; does not include a built-in tuner." Help!!!

Can't get the antenna to pick up the local channels


Hi Leslie, since you didn't disclose the brand or model name and number to the antenna you are using, I'll do my best to help you with your dilemma.

1.) double check your physical (wire) input connections
2.) make sure you have selected the proper input from you t.v.'s menu screen

HDTV aerial (outdoor mast) antennas are your best investment to receive free air wave digital transmissions...as opposed to the smaller indoor antennas...and the clarity is phenomenal; it cannot be matched by cable or satellite signals that compresses and decompresses the audio and video signal.

Why? Because, digital t.v signals are line-of-sight signals; meaning they need an unobstructed path between the sending source (t.v. station transmitter) tower and the receiving (home) antenna.

Hills, trees, walls, buildings, and any other obstruction- bends, deflects and weakens the signal as it is...placing an HDTV antenna in an attic weakens the signal by at least a 1/2...

So, if you are using an Indoor omnidirectional antenna at the set; the signal will be even weaker...it won't be good enough to pick up the digital signal that requires an accurate line-of-sight reception (just like satellite dishes.)

As a side note: I had an outdoor HDTV mast installed professionally; including signal filter and signal booster- [they'll know the proper type antenna to use for your area (see http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/ for more details.)] And it was so worth it; whenever we have storms that knocks out cable power, we rely on the air-wave stations...and their sub-stations, lots of choices; and it's phenomenally clear...much clearer than cable or satellite signals can ever be.

As a matter-of-fact, we watch our local news and entertainment stations normally via our antenna rather than our cable service provider's system for that very reason of clarity and detail. Too bad we couldn't get the quality "pay for" stations that way, too - we'd drop our cable service and save a lot of money! :)

12 inch black square in center of the viewing screen when I turn tv on or switch stations


The black square is a text box for the deaf. You can turn it on and off with the closed captioning button on your remote or from the closed captioning section in your television's menu.

However if you are connecting a cable box or satellite tv receiver you would need to turn the text box off from its menu. There is often a hidden menu that needs to be accessed on the cable boxes and satellite tv receivers that can be reached by turning it off and then immediately pressing the menu button on the outside of it. For more details about a specific cable box or satellite tv receiver call your cable or satellite company.

Tv does not work since everything has gone digital why?


You have to use a digital adapter box for your TV. The government was subsidizing these boxes to citizens who did not have some sort of cable service. You can pick one up from the store for about $40. Connect your antennae to this box and then this box to your tv. Antennae--->box--->TV. The box will adapt the local stations in your area that are now being broadcast in digital form to your TV. Hope this helps.

How to get hd picture through my insignia tv without digital cable


Unfortunately, at this time, you don't unless it is a powerful station local to you. In order to see which stations are available to you, you would enter the Setup menu of your tv, and then the section that allows you to scan for channels.
Also, digital cable alone doesn't guarantee you'll get HD signal. You would have to order an HD package from your cable or satellite provider. For example, Comcast touts their digital package as if it were vastly superior to the "standard" signal. Whether or not it is would be a matter of opinion, but the digital package is not HDTV. This misconception has disappointed many a subscriber, myself included (until I ordered the HD package). :^ )
