Question about Televison & Video
I recently bought the RCA DTA800 Digital Converter from WalMart. I have it installed and working. However, the it turns off (not standby) after only a few minutes. It does not turn back on with the remote or the button on the unit. I had to unplug it and plug it back in before it would turn on again. Then it did the same thing again. I gave up on it and left it alone. After a few minutes it turned back on by itself. I checked the setting that turns it off after a certain time limit, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. Is this something fixable, or do I need to exchange it?
The DTA800 has a Power Saver feature that turns the unit off after 4 hours if it is idle (no volume or channel changes).
Press MENU button, press #5 (Setting/Configuration), press #3 (Power Saver) Select OFF to de-activate this feature (no Power Saver).
This is covered on page 11 of the DTA800 user manual.

Tips for a great answer:
Do you have all connections hand tight? Are you getting an error message on the screen? What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, Coax or RCA?
If you're not getting an error message what type of cable are you using? If it's a Coax Cable, you will want to make sure the TV is on channel 3 or 4. If you're using an RCA Cable, you will need to check the Input channel.
