Hello, we just got the free set top box from that converts their digital signal to analog for our analog tv sets. That works fine. But the dvd pictures from the dvd player to the tv keep getting diagonal lines and breaking up. The more action in the movie, the more lines and picture fracturing.
Any thoughts on why this is happening and what to do about it?
The copy guard output of the DVD player is not compatible with the converter box.
You must hook up the DVD to the TV using a separate path.
If TV has audio video inputs, (RCA jacks) hook the DVD to audio video inputs of the TV with patch cords
select "video" with the TV remote to watch DVD, select TV with the remote to watch TV.
If the TV does not have AV input jacks, use an "A>B" switch to select between the converter and the DVD player...
the TV in that case must be on channel 3.
The AB switch or cables can be purchased at radio shack
