    NHENS digital converter box does not show a Setup Wizard as described in the manual. Installation appears to be ok with TV, Converter, and VCR all set to channel 3. But there is no Setup Wizard. Email contact: support@dsconverter.com is rejected, and service number 1-866-706-4367 does not answer. Should I take this back to Radio Shack?

Posting regarding the NHENS converter in January 2009. Bought it at Radio Shaft and it works -- feeding an old Panasonic b/w TV on channel 3. Live within 25 miles of the Empire State Building and the converter has managed to pick up and lock up on all NYC signals but channel 13. Also brings in channel 41 (licenced to NJ) and its subchannels plus the nearby channel 58 and its NJN-2 subchannel. Antenna is an amplified indoor rabbit ears with a loop also from Radio Shaft perched atop a kitchen cupboard on the 2nd floor of our house. Apparently, NHENS managed to correct the above referenced problems.

Cannot get a signal on my phillips t.v. iput and antenna n zenith digital converter box n say`s no signal


Hi. Convertor boxes have a preset channel output. This is either in the VHF region (channel 4) or somewhere in the UHF region (like most video's on channel 36 or 38). Switch on the convertor, and try a scan on your TV. You must be able to locate the output channel from the convertor. At least if this one is ok, or receiving.

Why can't i pick up channels using a RCA converter box, amplified HDTV antenna on my rca XL 100 analogue TV


If you live a good distance from the TV station you may need a better antenna. Did you do a channel search on the converter box? You'll need the remote for the converter box to change channels, not the TV's remote.

Hello, I have a General Electric 27GT 277 CRT Television, however, when I went to do a channel search it didn't return any channels. Although I was watching 6 free channels before, I don't have...


Hello,
Allow me to try and assist you based on your situation.
Most FREE channels went digital, more and more will disappear from the RF spectrum as digital moves into play. This tv is by far not digital thus it uses RF "radio frequency" that is transmitted from a tower to your rabbit ears then converted into the tv to make a picture and sound.
Here is a suggestion that you may consider, will not break the budget. Radio Shack carries a digital set top box that hooks to a antenna thus down converts the digital to analog for you so you can enjoy far more then 6 channels without having to pay the cable man or satellite tv company for your local stations.
Here is a link to the box I am talking about http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939
This box will help you get those channels back, will get you watching more TV.
Now for the remote issue, This box comes with a programable remote that will work for your tv so it kills 2 birds with one stone. You could also order one from remotes.com or 1800-remotes if you like.
We do hope this information does help you with your problems.
Thanks for using Fixya.com

I cannot get a signal with converter box and Philips indoor antenna


Try to manually enter the local DTV Station Channels, instead of letting the converter scan for channels. And try moving the antenna and then re-entering the DTV channel.


You should really have an external antenna that is matched to your local reception needs.


contact your local TV stations, their engineers will be more than happy to help.

How to connect tv set to digial tv tuner converter box


There are two ways to connect a converter box.

The simplest is to use the RF antenna cable supplied with the converter. Connect it from the box (the round threaded connector) to the TV's antenna/cable input connector and put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the converter box is set to). If your set has screw terminals for the antenna connection, you'll need an adapter to switch from the round cable connection to the screws. This may also have been supplied, but you'll probably need to pick one up at Radio Shack or another retailer.

The other way, if your TV has the inputs, is to use the audio/video output jacks on the converter. Again, the cable is usually supplied with the box. This direct connection gives better picture and sound quality than the RF method. The jacks are color coded: red and white for the audio right and left channels, yellow for video. Just connect them to the matching jacks on the TV and select the video input to watch the box. (If your TV is mono and has only a single white audio input jack, you'll need a Y-adapter to join the two audio signals from the box into one. This is also available at Radio Shack. If you don't do this, you'll only get one channel of the sound when watching a stereo channel.)

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you found it satisfactory. Thanks for asking!

Converter box Help


www.antennaweb.org

If you live closer than 15 miles, rabbit ears
If you live closer than 20 miles, omnidirectional
If you live closer than 50 miles, midrange outdoor (oldschool arial w/ rotator)
Further than 80 miles, you'll need a long range with rotator, perhaps even an amplifier to go with it. Print off what your results were on antenna web and bring it to a RadioShack or a local antenna store and they should be able to point you to the right antenna for your particular location.
