    I too bought Magnavox dtv receivers and can only get channel 4.1 for the normally local broadcast channels. Channels 4, 5, 7, and 9 are the normal channel plus some pbs channels. What I can get are a group of foreign channel broadcasts, which I do not want. I have a rabbit ear antenna on only one tv since all of the rest of my sets are satellite. I have tried orienting the antenna every way possible. I don't want to go out and buy a new antenna if the problem is with the dtv receiver. Any comments will be helpful.

I have a sony dvd player for dvd disk and regular hs cassetes connected to a 6 year old GE TV.after I connected my Magnavox converter I get quite a few channels, not as many as before. I;m on a high hill several miles from Pittsburgh. I have a large rotatable anttena in my attic and several TV;s around the house with rabbit ears my TV reception is excellent on all TV antennas I receive now with the coverter channels 2.1, 4.1, 4.2, 8.1, 8.2, 11.1, 11.2, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 22.1, 22.2, 53. 1,2,3. all with antennas. The problem I have is recording on my Sony recorder, what could be my problem. I can no longer record CH 4. I have my TV, recorder, and coverter on CH 3. I have tried different settings as to TV antenna or tv antenna/cable, nothing works

Magnavox TB100MW9 DTV Converter repair

After a close-by lightning strike, my Magnavox TB100MW9
Digital TV Converter box stopped working. I took it apart and found a
shorted diode (the fat one on the power side of the board)
marked with the number SB340. From the NTE cross-reference
web site, I found a replacement diode, NTE586 (Si, Fast
Switching, Schottky Barrier Diode) that cost me $2.40 at
a local electronic parts store. I replaced the diode and
it works fine!

Magnavox TB100MW9 Digital TV Converter, Intermittent

After about 6 years of service, my Magnavox TB100MW9 Digital TV Converter
developed ann intermittent problem, where it would take several minutes to
come on and then the picture would come and go. I took the cover off and
found that by gently moving a vertically-mounted IC, I could reproduce the
problem. From other units of the same model that I have, this design was
only used for serial numbers 4000000 and up. The IC is mounted to a substrate
board that is then soldered into the main board. Inspection of the pins on
the main board that solder to the substrate showed that there were poor
solder joints with visible cracks, probably dating to the original
manufacture, and which took 6 years to oxidize and lose connection.
Resoldering these joints, using a miniature iron along with visual guidance
from a binocular microscope with variable zoom, solved the problem.

Hooking a DTV through a router with an amplified antenna

If the input of the tb110mwg was "overdriven" like though an external amplifier; then it IS possible to burn up the receiver.

More than likely you just bought a bad unit. Then again, I would not try to amplify the input signal to the Magnavox unit. This is just not a good idea.
