    1. My remote control does not work anymore. Can I get a replacement?

    2. Yeah my remote no longer works also. Seems im not the only one.

    3. I have 3 of these and none of them work. Open one in April, did not work right out of the box. Called, said do you have receipt, said yes, bought it with coupon last year but did not use until this year. Said sorry, no warranty, $20. Sound did not work on it. Another one sound stopped working after about 3 months. Today, last one stopped, not getting anything. Hooked a magnavox up to same tv, it's ok. Sansonics, in my experience are junk.

    4. after I do a channelscan I get the message "no program found". What can I do?

    5. My remote doesn't even turn on anymore. So I have to turn the box on manually, and then I only get one channel because I can't use the remote to change channels. Any suggestions?

    6. you should have put a channel slector on the converter box????????

    7. Annonymous try a toshiba brand remote

    8. My sound keeps going out after it's on for about 1 hour. how do I keep it on?

    9. I can't hear one channel. Somebody help me?

    10. can i get a remote replacement?

    11. after I do a channelscan I get the message "no program found". What can I do?

    12. We have been using your converter box from the beginning and it has been just fine until last week. We cannot get Channel 11. When this first happened, when your press 11, the TV would just revert to another channel. However, when you press "OK" and listed the channels, when you scroll down to 11, it shows that channel perfectly, but if you press "OK" again to access that channel, the converter box stops working and you have to unplug it to turn it off. Then you can turn it on again and it works for all other channels. Any suggestions. I've done a channel scan and that didn't help. Found nothing regarding this in the manual.

    13. Its asking me for a code and i dont have one...

    14. You can use universal remote. I just need a manual to set it up again because I know they added more channels but I cannot get them because I don't have the manual and don't know the steps without the remote. My remote just stopped working one day too and I always have a universal, tried it out, and it works!!
