    This ATSC Converter Box is a Venturer STB7766Gl With there being no response to the remote menu button, no tuning to channels can take place. Is there a reset method for this device? Thank you, Bubbabear 64.

    What kind of converter box are you using?

Two of these converters were used, so they were interchanged on two different TV's, one using coax, the other with termimals for AV.

And that worked. Thanks.

Is this connected to your TV using the AV cables or the coax?

Why does my insignia converter box shuts off by itself after several hours of watching tv? Model NS-DXA2.


The power saving feature may be enabled on the converter box. The setting counts from the last operation performed by the remote.

Press Menu and navigate to Settings with the up/down arrows. Press OK. Then navigate to Power Saving and press OK again. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the power saving option to 4 hours, 8 hours, Program (the current program listed in the EPG for the channel you are on), or Off. Press OK to save the setting and then press Menu again to exit the On-Screen Menu system.

I hope this helps.

Picture not clear when playing a recorded program from dvd


I had a similar problem with an Insignia converter box. This is confusing but . . . I was told by an Insignia person that you can only program the channel that you have on and cannot record a different channel. My output channel is 3. My roof antenna is attached to my converter box "From Antenna" jack. Attach the converter's "To TV (RF)" jack to your VCR's "Antenna Input" jack. Attach "Antenna Output" jack to TV "Antenna Input". You will see your programs on your output channel, but if your VCR is like mine, your VCR may not recognize anything but your output channel, no matter which station is actually showing on the TV. If I want to record a show on channel 7 while I'm gone, I have to make sure the converter station is on 7 and that I choose channel 3 as my channel to record. You cannot program shows to be taped on different stations unless you physically change it on the converter box. I put my VCR on "Record" and flipped the stations from one to the next from my converter remote control and I taped exactly what was on the screen from one station to the next. You cannot tape one thing and watch another. Clear as mud??? Hopefully, not.

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu


http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/support-files/ns_dxa1_manual.pdf

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.

Problem programming Zenith Digital TV Converter DTT901 remote.


Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable.  The Installation  Guide should appear.  The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.

Tv stuck on zoom


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check your cable box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them, and the in-laws could have pressed that by accident. Check the TV settings, press Menu Button & then go to WINDOW/IMAGE SIZE. Now select normal size.

Also check the settings of the converter box (if you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture so it fills the screen. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to go to the service menu. To go to the service menu please start with the TV off and press mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power the remote on. Now the TV will come on with the menu displayed and from there you can change the settings as required.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Digital TV Converter Box


I have a Panasonic TV with built-in VCR, I had Comcast put in a converter box and was given instructions on how to set up the system to record my wife's programs, I had to select the program (in advance of scheduled time) to be recorded through the TV & converter box to the VCR. Next styep- select "Show" and I received a menu the first of which was "R" I clicked the "R" and a menu for selecting Repeat record start/stop times appeared Click OK and was then directed to to set up the VCR according to Panasonic VCR instructions. Worked for a day then the "R" menu on the converter box disappeared. Both the VCR and TV had to be set to Ch 3 to get it to work, But that's history. When it quit working ("R" menu), I had Comcast come get their box . PS The tech who showed up to pick up the converter box knew nothing about any "R" (record) menus except on the most ecpensive converter box. That cinched my decision, Oh Wel!. Sign me Tom with less trash to watch.

I assume you are attempting to connect another device to the set.
Selection of the output channel is normally accomplished from the external device, not the set.
