    I have the same problem as bucksgirl's. I installed the Magnavox converter box, and now I have to turn the volume to the highest level to even hear the TV.



    I have also lost a lot of channels, since installing. The channels that I can get usually lose its signal.

I just called the toll free customer service and they were able to fix this problem for me.

Briefly: You can go to Set-up, and then go to Initiate, then change the selection to RF Out. My sound is back to normal.

I have a zinwell converter box but no remote so volume is stuck low. I have a one for all universal remote how do I program it to my converter box. Like would it be satellite aux or cable


Volume is not controlled by the STB, but by the TV to which connected. Use the code search feature of your One For All remote to find a Zinwell code. If a search through all codes stored in your OFA remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes, even OFA, do not store all possible codes.

Low sound on harmony one


Is the remote set to adjust the volume on the TV? If it is going up all the way to 100% or Full on the TV then suggest checking the source. On some cable and satellite boxes they have a built-in volume control also. If that is set low, that would affect the amount of volume coming out of that device.

I have a RCA Digital converter box remote that needs to be programmed for my TV and I do not have the code or know how to program it manually.


You have a limited number of TV brands that can be controlled by this remote as DTV converter boxes are just basic function devices. If your TV is not on the list, then it cannot be controlled. If your TV brand is on the list, look for the 3 digit codes next to your TV brand. You may have to try all the codes if one does not work. You should have the list on a separate leaflet that came with your converter box.
Press PGM on the remote. Enter the 3 digit code with the number keys. Press OK. Test by pressing the volume button and see if it works. If not try another code next to your TV brand from the list.
If you lost the leaflet then here is a link online to see this information:

I'm assuming you have the DTA800 box.

NEED CODES FOR RCA CONVERTER BOX TO PROGRAM TV TO REMOTE


Good day,
I might be missing something here, but if YourTV has the basic controls on the TV itself, such as on/off volume, and channel select, then just turn on tv, and set it to channel 3.
Use your converter box remote to scan for channels, and other options it has as needed.

Programming RCA converter box remote control with Phil/Mag TV---


Good day,
You should have the instruction guide. If not look below. It's there but look closely for the guide itself and how to increase it's size to readable.

Check on the back of the TV to see if there is a 3 and 4 setting, If so, set to 3.
With nothing connected to the tv, and using the tv's remote, scan for channels. It should come up with only channel 3.
Then using the remote with advanced options, set the the input to either antenna or auto.

Connect the antenna cable to input on the converter box. Using the supplied cable connect the output from the converter box to
the TV. Turn the TV on first, followed by the converter box.
Then follow the instructions.

Not really easy so you'll have to fight your way thru it.
Finding the right setting for the antenna will probably take the most time, requiring a station scan after each adjustment.

Magnavox Converter Box quit working


Can't really say my problem is solved Called the 1-800# and spent more than 1 hr. talking with various people and the consensus is that the Box is defective. Common sense and no real knowledge of electronics told me that before I ever called.
Solution - UPS will pick up the packaged Box between 8AM and 7PM today - very specific time!!!!
I will have a new one in 6-8 wks and by that time I will have NO TV reception. Asked if they could possibly put a RUSH on the order but that's like asking if I could get an invitation to the Inauguration!
Lots of frustration for purchasing an inferior product.

Thanks for your concern and prompt response

I installed the converter box on channel 3 instead of channel 4


No reason to delete converter box from channel 3. Most converter boxes have a selection switch on the back for channel 3 or channel 4. Slide switch to 4 and set tv to 4.

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.
