Autoprogram cable channels? Magnavox RX4814 25N101

I have a mid-90's Magnavox "Total Remote Control" console TV. Model RX4814-HP01 and chassis 25N1-01. Have original remote, no manual. Connects directly thru coax, no VCR/DVD /Audio auxillaries.

Is there an autoprogram function on this set? I can access the channel menu but only two options appear: add channel+ or delete channel-.

I can't imagine I'd have to program each channel manually?

Set is on Cable Tuning, not antenna and i have tried unplugging the TV overnight to let it "reset" itself, no luck.

Thanks!

SOURCE: TV screen on video 2 and remote died

The only way your going to change the video mode is with the original remote. If you need another remote go to http://remotes.com or call 1800 remotes Theres a button on the upper left hand side of the remote called video mode. A universal most of the time will not work this function. You could ask around to your friends and buddies or relitives if anyone has a working Sanyo remote or go to a local retailer that sells Sanyo and see if he would let you borrow one for a little while so you can switch out of the video mode. Good Luck

SOURCE: sony wega 27 inch

I posted originally about a year and a half ago about this very same problem. It is a known defect with the WEGAs that Sony refuses to do anything about. Here's the thread with my experience - the upshot is, try doing a "hard reboot" by unplugging it and leaving it unplugged overnight. That worked for me for about 18 months, but no longer...I'm replacing my 5 year old WEGA today (NOT with a Sony).

SOURCE: doesn't get all cable channels

With the menu set to cable signals, the autoprogram should catch all of the cable channels. The Cable Channel option allows you to use either channel 3 or 4 as the "cable" channel. This is when you have an external box that you use to tune in cable rather than the TV directly. The easiest way here is to autoprogram the TV while playing a VCR tape. That will insure that channel 3 is included.

Does the autoprogram fail?

Need the remote code for a phillips dvd player


These are the codes printed in the owners manual for your dvd/vcr player.If they do not work you will have to contact Emerson and ask them for help getting the code. The contact number should have come with the instructions for the remote. Just give them the model number of you remote and the units model number and they should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate external input channel (usually near channel 0).
Press a button on the TV’s original remote control that selects an external input channel until the DVD
recorder’s picture appears. Check your TV owner’s manual for details.

Magnavox, channel buttons cycle through sources


You need to reprogram your TV if you do not have a cable box or satellite box, otherwise those are going to be the only channels that the unit will pick up. If you do have a cable box or satellite box, just hit 0-3 or 0-4 if you are using a coaxial wire. If no box is present, you can just go into the menu and hit autoprogram - select cable for direct cable from wall, and antenna for antenna. Note: this particular TV is going to need a box in another 5 weeks due to the DTV transition, so my solution will only carry you for another few weeks.

Admiral TV more channels


You will need a menu button to get to setup or channels for you to autoprogram the tv to find ALL the channels. AUTOPROGRAM is the word you need to find. If there is a menu button on the tv, then you can probably do it from there. If not, then you need the original remote from Admiral or at:

Usually, on a modern set, you hook the cable directly to the TV, go into the menu and perform the AUTOPROGRAM. That's it!
