Nop! You have two on-off function on the converter. One is a switch on the side of the converter. (It switches the main power on and off. Saves energy.). The other, and most important on-off switch is done with the remote only. No remote, no viewing.

One neat feature is that the converter can shut itself off after a preset time, 4 hours by default.

Common defect with the Funai (Magnavox) boxes, and Funai is not servicing or replacing them under warranty. At least they didn't for me. Return it & get another brand.

Question

I've hooked my Magnavox digital converter up and it doesn't work--what am I doing wrong?

The directions look simple enough, but when I hook it up, all I get is a blue screen. The VCR will play a tape, but I can't get TV reception. Also, the converter remote will turn the converter on and off but do nothing else--I can't get a setup screen to come up. I'd really appreciate some help since my local station has decided to stop broadcasting analog TODAY!

I agree with most of what the guy above says, but you can get digital tv with rabit ears made in the 1960's if you are close to the stations, if you live more than 25 miles away you should mount an antenna in the attic or roof.

First make sure your tv is on channel 3. If not change to channel 3 then press and hold the setup for about 3 seconds if you still see nothing make sure all the cables that came with the box are hooked right. If everything is ok then try unplugging it and start from scratch. Also make sure you have an digital antenna if not you will not receive any reception but if you do and you checked all the above then try adjusting your antenna if none of this works if you have another tv see if it works on that one because thats what happen to me didnt work on one but work on another. If none of this works it might just be the box return it or call the number that came with box for help.

Question

Do I really need a converter box with a digital t.v. and no cable or satellite?

I have a magnavox converter box but can't seem to re-scan with the remote and I replaced the batteries. Do I still need a converter box even though my T.V. is digital? My antenna is also digital.

clarification: Maganvox DTV converter STB
SOME units sold by Walmart in stores (in CO) have pass through. (Says so on the box & in manual)

model TB100MW9 does not.

model TB100MW9A DOES

model TB100MG9 does not.

See their respective manuals on line or look at manual that came with unit.

For TB100MW9A see page 27. "Go into setup, to RF OUT setting to RF THROUGH to get analog (non-digital signals) "

Some Set Top Boxes (STB) like the Nhens Digital Stream dtx9950 pass thru automatically by seting unit to standby (turn it off) mode.

No surprise, STB box design BETWEEN manufacturers is NOT consistent.

Hope this helps.

No supply of the RCA models in WI or IL. The magnovox is worthless - do not buy it. Go to Best Buy and buy the Insigna box, it has all the controls you want and need.

rabbit ears for a new digital flatscreen

I recently purchased a new flatscreen for one of my offices that does not have cable service. Is there a way to hook up rabbit ears to the newer TV's by using a converter box?

I got here through a review of the Magnavox TB100MW9 DTV converter box.
Does your flatscreen digital as well as an analog tuner? Many of the newer ones do. Check in the setup mode to find out. If it does, you shouldn't need a converter box. If it does not, do you have any VHF channels(2 - 13)? If you do , you may not want to get a Magnavox Converter. I did and as per an assistant director of Engineering of the tv station I can't get, it has a "known issue with the reception of VHF."
