    alright, I see that it is an RCA box according to your title, you are on channel 3 or 4 or whatever input you are using correct?

How do I find Colby tv codes to program into a rca converter box remote


RCA converter box remote control have no set-up code to Coby.

I have an RCA TV converter box, model DTA800B1. I don't have the box or instructions, I am attempting to conneect it to an RCA TV with a built-in DVD player. I would appreciate the code that the TV...


There are a lot of possible RCA TV codes programmed into the DTA800B1 remote.
Try the following three digit codes: RCA 000, 001, 005, 072, 073, 074, 075, 076, 077, 078, 135,
138, 140, 144, 150, 156, 159, 162, 163, 169, 171, 178, 229, 246, 249, 260, 274, 275, 293, 302 in order.

To program the remote. Turn on your TV manually and press PGM (to the left of the zero in the number pad section). The LED should light and stay lit. Type in the first 3 digit code and press OK (in the center of the arrow keys near the top). See if the gray volume up/down keys work to change the volume. If it doesn't work press PGM again and enter the next code.

Note that the converter box remote will only turn on and off, switch the input from Channel 3 or 4 to AV in, adjust the volume and mute the TV. It will not control any of the DVD functions. Your original TV remote will not control the converter box.

The manual for the DTA800B1 is available here: http://www.1800customersupport.com/productdocuments/DTA800B1_RCA.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Magnavox converter box TB110MW9 shuts off repeatedly


Hello,

Looks like you got a bad converter. I have the same kind and it is a pain that you can't use the remote to also control the TV. It will turn itself off after 2 hours by itself if you do not change the options, but the symptoms you describe are beyond consumer repair.

Do you still have the manual? There is a toll free number to contact them and ask for a replacement. If you do not have it I can provide it tomorrow. (I am not at home right now.) Of course you can only get one of the same converters.

Thanks for using Fixya.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!


Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.

Want to continue to record on my VCR after digital hookup


You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.

I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.

We bought an RCA converter box, and we haven't used it in a while. We changed the batteries, unplugged and plugged the box back in...And the remote still won't control the TV or Converter box.


Dont know if the remote is a programable remote. If it is, it may need to have codes entered or it may need to be set to operate the correct device. some remotes have buttons for TV, DVD, cable box, etc.
