I have a 26 inch Ilo Tv i had been watching it in analog mode just fine then I switched to digital mode it did it's scan i clicked OK an now all i have is a screen that says THIS IS AN ENCRYPTED CHANNEL! My question is how can I get it back to analog mode PLEASE SOME ONE HELP ME
Re: can't get out of digital mode back into analog
My TV just did the same thing. All you have to do is turn off the tv, unhook your cable antenna, then restart the tv with the antenna unplugged. Then go to tv menu, and this time turn the digital scan off. I really hoped this helped someone!

The GE universal remote #24914 works to change your Ilo tv from analog to digital and switch to vid1 or vid2 ect.... The code is in the book that comes with the remote. I use this remote myself. This remote can be bought at Target for under $10.
If you hook up using the tuner in ILO you will lose digital signal to the HDTV (it will still go thru but only as analog) so... Use a splitter from the antenna coax to the "antenna in", then you can hook Ilo output to the tv inputs. You can watch/record analog through the ILO and still switch back digital non recording on HDTV thru its own separate tuner. Hook up the dvd player outputs to the ILO inputs(use the front ones is easiest) and then select SOURCE, pick corresponding inputs and enter. You can watch/record from other dvds that way but not from copyrighted ones, It will say protected content. I would only hook up dvd player temporarily to record from dvd player, then to watch dvd's just hook it up to HDTV. If you can select progressive scan on player to HD it might be even better picture but I don't have HDTV so I'm not sure how that works. Maybe more at this site: http://www.retrevo.com/support/CyberHome-DVR-1600MU-DVD-Players-manual/id/534ci862/t/2/ Someone says they are very similar recorders. The front covers are alike i know. Hope this helps.
You're not trying to use the "Tuner" in the ILO are you? Bypass it and use the A/V cables from the "out" of the converter box. I think mine also has the coax type cable from the "to tv" to the ILO, then from the "to tv" on the ILO to the television. Either way should work. Mine works great, its a zenith and I have successfully recorded to discs in my ILO. Just change the Source back to the DVD source to watch a dvd or select the corresponding A/V connections that are hooked to your convertor box to watch/record television.
> jfthr - Tv convertor boxes transfer digital signals into ANALOG. So when it goes to the dvd recorder it IS ANALOG. I have my antenna hooked to my convertor box, the converter hooked up to the ILO (A/V connections) then, the output on the ILO to the input of my analog tv. (Video selection on my tv). It works great to watch tv and/or record. I switch to the "DVD SOURCE" to watch dvds. Maybe you have the conv box hooked to the tv then the outs on the tv to the dvd. That would explain why you can get a picture but not watch dvd? The ILO has to go between the box and the tv in order to watch dvd.
I am sorry, Thats the one manufacturer that I diont have any experience with. although I would quess that its a signal processor that may be at fault being that you cant switch inputs.I would try to resubmitt your request to one of the other experts that may be famillar with that manufacturer.
first off i would have to ask you if when cleaning the tv do you spray cleaner directly
on the set ? as this can cause corrosion on the control pad which would also mess up the remote pick up.
second i would recomend you un-plug the set for about 10 min to re-set the tv.
third the control panel could have gone bad on you these set's do run rather warm.
