dtv converter has noise on all channels


not only does it have hiss/buzzn every channel, even ones with 100% signal, the volume on the converter does not do ANYthing all the way up or down, and if i turn the dumb thing off, it has to rescan all the channels again for ten minutes! any ideas on the noise? i googled it and i see i'm not the only one, and it's not just my brand of box either.

You may need better grounding. Get a length of wire, say, 16 gauge, bare is OK, to connect your converter box, your TV, your surround sound amplifier if any, etc. to each other and connect the far end to a known ground. Generally a good way to make each connection is to use a screw that holds the converter box cabinet together, holds the TV cabinet together, etc. The screw that holds the cover on a wall electrical outlet, or a pipe inside a baseboard radiator should be an acceptable ground.

How is the converter connected to the TV (what cables)?

OKAYYYY!! i figured out how to make it work! all channels perfect now. (never DID find any help with google)
what i did was (please send $20.00 US for answer) hehehehe, oh wait, that was another thread....
i swapped out the crappy coax and used good quality RCA jacks for audio and video. turned TV to AUX1 and scanned, all's well now, no more hiss and buzz in the audio! i hope this answer will help others that will likely have the same problem!
