Dtv converter box installation problem

My fairly new TV has lost the ability to recognize the remote. tried new ones, reprogramming the old one, everything I can think of and I guess the infrared "eye" has gone out. I was told by 2 different "experts" that if I buy the DTV converter box I can then use the remote. We weren't going to need the boxes since we have cable, but if they would solve my problem, it would be better than trying to take the TV in for repair.
We tried hooking one of the boxes up and it goes thro the channel scan and everything, but then says no channels found. We tried the second one and it did the same thing. I am at a loss as to the problem. It wouldn't be the fact that we have cable would it? Or is something else wrong?

Thanks for your help

May be the problem is the how you connect the converter to the tv... it shoud be connected at the video in and audio in of the tv... and the cable wire should be plug in the Rf in of the converter.. you can scan all the channel thru the remote..

My panasonic up/down channel buttons on the side of the tv wont work


Try getting a Harmony remote control. It will operate your tv and anything else you can connect to it. When the TV gets too old to fix, the remote can be reprogrammed for the new TV, so it never gets obsolete. The remote is programmed from their website.

I thought that model number looked familiar. The answer is a qualified yes. If you have a Magnavox or a Philips remote it should work. If you have a universal remote try to search for a code that will control the box.

I need a code to progam this remote to control a zinwell zat857 dtv converter box! please


OK, I have a Zinwell box that was working perfectly until a friend tried it in his new apartment. Two problems (a) he misplaced the remote over there, and (b) he reprogrammed it so it now only gets four crappy channels instead of the previous fifteen.
Will try to get him to search for remote. Meanwhile ar 4am:
I have two universal remotes, old Magnavox and newish Ptimesat. Primesat looks good but doesn't seem to have search fubction -- does it> Tried to get Zinwell to work on Aux wth code 591 but no luck, Search on Magnavox got one partial result but failed again. Help?
(b) Is there any way to reprogram the box manually, without a remote? I want my channels!

I think you are saying everything except the Klik2 has quit working. If that is so check to see if the light in the wall button is blinking. Press the 'lock' button for 3 seconds and the light should glow steadily and the remotes will work. If you are saying all remotes plus the Klik2 has quit then your logic board has failed.

Want to run my dtv receiver through new digital converter box.


You will not be able to record local station from a DTV converter connected thru a directv receiver unless there is a a/v input on the directv samsung receiver. Also check the user manual for this receiver if recording from an external source such as a DTV converter box is possible. The answer to seperating the DTV converter box from the directv samsung receiver is possible if your tv has multiple inputs. Try connecting the DTV box to the RF input and the directv samsung box to an a/v input then change inputs using the tv remote. you will need an av cable (yellow/ red/white) for the directv box and a rf jumper cable for the DTV box.
