Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box

I purchased an Insignia NS-DXA1 Digital to Analog converter box at Best Buy last week. It works fine, EXCEPT every time a specific Qwest High-Speed Internet advertisement comes on the box freezes up. I am unable to use either the remote control or the buttons on the box itself to fix it or shut it down. The only solution I've found is to unplug the box, then plug it back in and turn the power back on. Is there another solution? Could Quest's advertisement be transmitting some type of code that obstructs the proper operation of the box? This problem is not limited to one station, but is limited to one specific advertisement.

    I have 6 Insignia boxes and all six have "locked up" showing blue lines with faint text and numbers. It varies from station to station and does not follow the quest commercial mentions. It is just random.



    I can not power off....I have to unplug.



    Solution? I am returning all six boxes.

    I have the same problem, only it's when it's been on for the box to heat up, and if I turn it off when commercials come on and turn it back on after it will not freeze, I'm ready to go back to books.

I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.

I own an Insignia flat screen tv, NS-LCD27, & I was given the Insignia converter box, NS-DXA1; how do I program tv remote for the box? Thanks, frances b.


The digital to analog converters did not exist when the TV was built and the remote programmed. Thus you will have more luck programming the converter box's remote to control the TV. (At least with my converter box, the included remote could only turn on and off the TV. It would only change channels on the converter.)

Most universal remotes only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the TV was programmed. So a new universal remote will probably control both the TV and the converter box. (Program the converter box using a code for LG or Zenith set top boxes if Insignia isn't listed. LG makes Insignia video products for Best Buy.) The remotes that are programmable by a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up.

A replacement remote for your TV is available here: http://www.mcmelectronics.com/partfinder.aspx?brand=&mdl=NS-LCD27&mode=part . An exact replacement remote for the converter box can be purchased at: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=13055197980390&smodel=NSDXA1&brand_pn=INSIGNIA_NSDXA1 . The manual for the converter box (as a PDF) is here: http://cbsdallas.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/insignia-ns-dxa1-manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Since Insignia and LG share compatible codes for digital-to-analog converters, review your remote control's manual for LG VCR codes as they should work to control our converter.

Insignia model NS-DXA1 digital converter box


I have heard alot of people having the same type of problem with booth the insigna and the Magnavox boxes. Check the warranty that came with the unit and and call the 1800 number, they may be covering the unit for more then three months. Insigna is the Best Buy brand thus thus if calling the maker of the box (LG) doesn't get it fixed, speak to the store manager. He can exchange the unit if he wants to because Insigna is the store brand. Call Best Buy and complain and complain unit they take back the defective unit.
