Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

INTERMITTENT RECEPTION WITH INSIGNIA

I have three Insignia boxes. One of the hookups intermittently shows channels 7 and 23 as "no signal". At the same time, reception is fine on the other two TVs, just the one is a problem. I changed converter boxes, no luck. I switched TVs, no luck. How can I have perfect reception on two and not on the third ? All three are hooked to an outside antenna. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I have an RCA digital converter box and overall I get reception for all the local channels except for channel 7. On the T.V. screen it lists info like what shows are on, the time it starts and how much reception the T.V. is getting for that channel. If there is not enough signal, the reception bar show little or no reception and gives no information on what is showing (it give a message to adjust the antenna). On our T.V. channel 7 gets better reception and shows what is showing like all the other channels. I end up watching it in analog which ends in Febuary. Why is channel 7 blank when there is plenty of reception?

I suggest that you swap a one of the better boxes with the one that is not so good. If you get the same condition there is nothing wrong with the converters. You probably have a signal loss on the one that is not like the other two, could be a poor connection, wrong type of coax, defective splitter or many other things. Good luck!

Does the insignia ns-p42q-10a need a converter box or just an antenna?


Hello
Just find out, whether your TV is compactable for Digital and Analogue signals reception. You can find this information at its user manual [specifications page], usually come at the last page. If it is not compactable for both analogue and digital, you must have to buy one [D/A] {digital to Analogue} converter.

This may not be just a reception problem. Usually dark screens are a sign that the inverter power board is getting intermittent or the backlights are fading. If you need service for you television.Call Insignia customer care at this telephone number 1-877-467-4289. They can tell you where to ship or take your unit for service. You can try to solve you reception problems with a amplified indoor antenna. These products can usually be found in local electronic stores like Fry's or the Micro Center. They are television signal amplifiers for antennas. You can buy them all in one package or as a add on. If you are not sure what to look for, just go to the store and ask for their help. You can also find them on line by using google for television antenna signal amplifiers. I hope this information helps you with your Problem.

Does my Insignia come digital cable ready or do I need a convertor box?


Cablevision is forcing people to having to buy Digital Cable Boxes with decoders in them.. On top of what you are already paying you have to pay lets say 2- 6$ per tv for a box per month.  Cablevision is doing this and charging more.  It's really to bad.

Insignia box has limited channels.


Many stations are not at full power for their digital broadcasts since they are broadcasting on analog as well. The signal srength should increase after the changeover. In the meantime, placing the antenna at the highest point will help. Also, changing the antenna to one designed for digital reception will help.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

Installed Insignia box, keep getting No Signal


You need a stronger antenna. Many of the VHF channels moved over to UHF thus if your current antenna doesn't pick up UHF, you will not pick up those channels.

Signal issues with my Insignia DTV converter box


As far as the antenna goes..NO. It is still an RF signal. The antenna just needs to be good for the frequency range of the stations you are receiving. The station numbers and frequency don't necessarily match like they use to. They are all over the place now.
