Digital converter boxes are needed to receive broadcast television signals. The transition to digital television that occurred between April 16 and June 12 of prevented analog television sets from receiving a broadcast signal without a digital converter box. If you have cable or satellite, a digital converter box is not necessary. Digital converter boxes are made by manufacturers, such as Zinwell, that you can easily connect to your existing analog television.

Neither the or are for sale thru the link on the blog page. It is unclear if they are available anymore. Had this box for about a month, and it was working fine until tonight.
Manual and website were not any help. Anybody know how to fix or where to get help? The owners manual links just ping-pong between 2 similar pages which both have links claiming to be to the manual, but aren't. Any clue about how to really download the manual? When I connect in the new city the screen reads "Bad or No Signal". Troubleshooting tip advises to "contact local dealer for instructions how to enter 'sevice mode menu'" But since I purchased from Amazon I have no "local dealer".
Does anyone know how to reset the box after relocating to a new city? Well someone in the household moved it and unplug everything.
So I finally had a chance to put it back together today. It does not work. I actually have two, one of them the indicator light does not turn on and the other has a yellow indicator. Are my converter boxes broken? A friend of mine lost the remote months ago. Help please. My new ZAT A has what is called analog pass through which works fine from channel 13 down. Thus the UHF channels from 17 up to 57 for us do not come in at all when the box is hooked up.
I just bought a Zinwell A. I have used the auto scan and it keeps telling me that the scan failed check the antenna. The antenna works fine on the tv and I have moved the antenna around and themn n rescanned and can't get any channels. I also tried to manually enter and have the same problem.
Any suggestions? I have the same problem as the comment above dated July 24, Is it possible the signal is too week? Now I cannot switch it back, since the setup does not show on my screen. What can I do? I just re-installed this box onto my television and now the television screen has white dots all over the screen. I can view the picture but can't get the dots off.
What should I do now? What am I missing? Setup is exactly the same.. I did automatic scan.. I'm coming into this digital stuff late so I'm way behind the curve. I got a A on Craigslist and hooked it up. Got most of the local channels but I'm unable to get the Fox channel.
Is there a "set" or "base" channel that the works off of? Could it be channel 7 thus making it unavailable?
Or could it be that the Fox signal is weak and I need to get better "receiver" ears? Right now I'm just using "rabbit ears". Any help would be much appreciated.
I just came across this forum, but to answer your question, it could be your antenna. Rabbit ears just don't cut it for distant stations greater then 5 miles. You need to get a proper antenna and put it up high for good reception. I have a 4 bay antenna on a 10 ft mast and I can now receive stations about 70 miles away.
