Digital TV Converter keeps shutting off

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?

    Thanks. I tried that. It was turning off after only 5 minutes and later turning itself back on. I finally contacted RCA tech support and they think it is faulty wiring and recommended returning or repairing the unit.

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.

RCA DTA800 TV Converter Box I need TV codes for the remote to work. The TVs are a GE, phillips magnabox


Good day,
I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog.
The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well.
Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.

Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.

plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan.
When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.

No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.

If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.

Viewing separate Chanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.

More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started.
The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.

Installed and setup RCA DTA800 digital converter. Ran a channel scan and did not pick up any channels. Have an outdoor antenna with an amplifier. Need advice.


Try bypassing your amplifier. I was getting an incomplete scan, and that solved the problem. I ran the scan without the amp in the line, then turned off the TV and converter and reconnected the amp.
