I ordered a new TV converter box and it came with a Magnavox remote which has no volume button and I have to turn my TV off manually. Why is that??


Thats because converter remote will not work on your TV it will only control the converter box, TV has different Ir senser.You can buy A remote to operate both units Dollar Store has them for $6.00 and Mats Electronics has them for 3.95 and up.1-800-628-1118

I havce installed the digital converter box and everything seems to be okey. I get the menu page, and do a channel scan, which brings up no channels. With the converter turned off, I get a cable signal...


Hello,

1. If you are using the composite video output, double check that your antenna is connected to the converter's antenna input and not the output.

2. If you are in a remote area that gets signals through translators, there might not be any digital signals to receive.

Is the antenna connected to the input of the converter box? There should be a screw on connector on the back, the antenna connects there.

If you have the antenna connected properly, have set the conveter to scan for channels, and you were able to watch TV with the rabbit ears before you got the box, the box may be defective....!!


Thank you!!!

PLease post back for further assistance..


Regards!!...

Can only pick up chanel from 2 thru 13,do i need a box converter all other tv get 98 stations


A converter box will allow you to get all the channels but if you are only getting 2-13 now go into the customer menu and I think you will find the set is in the AIR band and not the CATV band.

With the remote you should be able to move it into the CATV or cable mode and then if needed find and select auto program.

The fact you are only getting 2-13 means it is not in the CATV or cable mode.

DTV Conversion Question


Yes you can connect a DTV converter box in your van.
If the TV is DC powered you will need to buy a DC to AC inverter, like these http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12_volt_power_inverters.html because there are currently no dc dtv converters available.
If the tv is ac powered you will only need to connect the converter to the inverter the tv is connected to.
If you need more help or installation instructions let me know.

After installing the DTV converter box, reception was dropped for most of the stations i received pre-box. now i have added a new antenna. and, i can't get anything through the converter box. connections...


If you have the box connected to the TV using an RF cable to the TV's antenna input, make sure the TV is on channel 3. You should at least see the boxes menu display when the power is on. Try channel 4 if you see nothing on 3. Every box I've hooked up has been on channel 3 by default, but who knows?

If you can, hook the box to the TV using direct video and audio connections, and make sure the TV is set to the correct input.

Unless the box you bought has "RF pass-through" (and if you got your box using a government coupon, it's a sure bet it doesn't) you will notice a marked drop in quality if you try to watch regular broadcasting with the box connected. I've been installing these with a bypass arrangement so people can still watch their analog broadcasts until they go off the air in February.

If the box does in fact have no display when you turn it on and your TV is on the correct channel, your box is defective and should be returned and replaced.

You will need to run the setup to allow your converter box to detect your local channels. You may have a "Setup" button, or may have to get to it through a "Menu" button on the converter box remote.

The short version: Will a 14-year-old TV work with digital-to-analog TV converter? Specifically, I have RCA Model G25342AT, built in Sept., 1994. In case yes, converter should work... Trying to connect...


The converter box should work. Getting the remote to work with the TV might be a challenge. You might have to stick with two remotes. It used to be in the old days you could plug your tv power into the remote that way you would turn the tv on with the tuner remote but I be they stop doing that.

There is website that will let you check the digital televison signals for your area. This site should help you:
