I purchase the above converter box to add off air digital signals to my tv with only an analog tuner. However this TV is also used to receive Directv programing. The problem. When the converter is installed the converter works well with the common feed coax, ie off air signals and Directv , when tuning the local tv digital channels. However the Directv receiver outputs on either ch 30 or 40 and all of those signals are blocked by the converter. Turning the Insignia converter off, pull power plug etc nothing allows the Directv signal to reach the tv unless I reconnect the tv to the antenna lead thus bypassing the converter box. Local customer service at Jefferson City MO assured me that this converter would allow the directv sigals to pass when tuned to the correct channel.

The digital to analog converters did not exist when the TV was built and the remote programmed. Thus you will have more luck programming the converter box's remote to control the TV. (At least with my converter box, the included remote could only turn on and off the TV. It would only change channels on the converter.)
Most universal remotes only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the TV was programmed. So a new universal remote will probably control both the TV and the converter box. (Program the converter box using a code for LG or Zenith set top boxes if Insignia isn't listed. LG makes Insignia video products for Best Buy.) The remotes that are programmable by a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up.
Set your TV input to match the input your have your Insigna connected to. Then run the Insignia setup. You are getting a distorted screen because you probably have the Insignia connected to channel 3 and the TV on channel 4.
Connect your Insigna unit to your television video 1 input. Connect your antenna to the Insigna. Turn on the television to video 1 source. Power on the Insignia. Now go through the auto-detect routine to set up your television stations.
HDLCD2600 come set for cable. Make sure the tv is set for "tv" or "air" then run the auto channel memory or search feature of the set. If you have the manual it's under "memorizing channels". If your still have problems, call Sansui TV's customer service number 800 289 0980.
I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.
