I figured i'd contribute with some of the top issues regarding the use of DTV converter boxes and reception based on my experiences, which were far from successful until recently.
TOP CONVERTER BOX PROBLEMS:
Remote stops working, or only works on some functions and not all.
If the channels don't change, most likely it's from using the up/down arrows instead of the actual channel up/down button. on some satellite receivers, it doesn't matter but on most DTV converters it won't change channels by using the arrow buttons. the box can be 'confused' and resetting to factory through the menu, unplugging the box, replacing the batteries in the remote, and then plugging the box back in, and reinsert the remote's batteries can solve a problem such as that. usually it's a confused electronic state that can also cause the box to get 'frozen' or stop responding to the remote entirely.
Converter Box loses reception, but reception does not return, after wind, rain, or snow.
Box has possibly gotten into an extended state where the signal was nonexistant or in the 'red zone' of the signal meter and after a few seconds some boxes do what i call an 'unrecoverable signal drop' and refuse to lock the channel in question or even so much as forget the channel if you scan up/down to find ones with signal and return. usually you have to simply turn the box off, wait 5-10 seconds and turn it back on. this will force the box to attempt to aquire the channel again. usually this works if the condition that caused the error is over. it's also important that some boxes won't do as well when set up during bad weather, they seem to use the signal they get when scanning the first time as an average so it stays near or on that percentage. so re-scanning (not easy add or update scans) from scratch during optimal conditons will help alleviate this problem in the future.
Signal drifts back and forth from good to zero (no signal) off/on or when viewing signal meter, picture constantly has pixellations and loses audio stream (Cliff Effect)
Check antenna wires, or connections, this is sometimes caused by the smallest of connections or bad cable even if it seems to be ok. it also can be the weather having a similar effect on the reception as it would on Satellite TV reception (rain/snow/weather fade) even though there is no satellite signal the same issue can be done by the weather when it was normally not an issue with analog reception. you may just have to wait for the condition to clear.humor xxl humor x ironia humor you humor your stress humor youtube humor ya books humor yourself humor y chistes humor you synonym humor yoga humor zodiac signs humor zeszytów szkolnych humor z zeszytów szkolnych alfabetycznie humor zabava big humor znacenje humor znaczenie humor zyra humor z zeszytów szkolnych humor about death humor about forgetting humor about time humor about waiting humor about cancer humor about life humor about change humor against hacking humor against humanity against humor humor among buddies crossword humor among students humor among police dark humor among us names 21st century humor among us sense of humor among nurses polvo do humor among us nomi black humor among us humor around the world humor around meaning sense of humor around the world best humor in the world different types of humor around the world humor as a rhetorical device humor as a trauma response humor as a core value humor as a value humor as medicine humor as a verb humor at work humor at the expense of others is called humor at work ted talk humor at someone else's expense humor at a funeral humor at work quotes humor at workplace humor at the expense of others quotes humor behind collegehumor behind the scenes vitreous humor behind retina vitreous humor behind the eye psychology behind humor science behind humor hiding behind humor hiding behind humor meaning humor between generations humor differences between cultures correlation between humor and intelligence difference between humor and sarcasm difference between humor and satire difference between humor and wit difference between humor and laughter relationship between humor and stage fright but humor me have humor but without folly funny but true humor what does just humor me mean what humor me means when someone says humor me what does the phrase humor me mean what does it mean to humor yourself humor by generation humor by the book.com humor by the book facebook humor by country humor by exaggeration humor by sigmund freud humor by mbti humor by association humor contra vox humor contra la depresion humor contra la ansiedad humor contra el estres humor contra el calor humor contra los complejos femeninos imagens de humor contra o flamengo imagens de humor contra o corinthians humor during difficult times humor during pandemic humor during interview humor during difficult times quotes humor during coronavirus crisis humor during crisis humor during coronavirus humor during lockdown humor for seniors humor for teachers humor for dummies humor from tianheng humor from a pentecostal pew humor from the pulpit humor from australia humor from my pain humor from trauma reader's digest humor humor from china aqueous humor is present in front of where is aqueous humor what forms the aqueous humor humor in advertising humor in born a crime inside humor vitreous humor inside eye voetbal inside humor humor into a noun humor in to speech humor into english humor into hindi humor into urdu into humor bringing humor into the workplace incorporate humor into lessons humor like words humor like community humor like like humor in the onion like humor telegram like humor or smiles crossword like humor or smiles dark humor like food vitreous humor made of aqueous humor made of what is vitreous humour made of
