How to program ilo TV w/universal remote to play DVD
I just bougt a universal remote ((AVEX, also from Wal*Mart) hoping to program my ilo TV so I could play DVD movies. I have Comcast Cable. The code 110 (Comcast) works to turn the cable box off/on, adjust volume, and to change channels. The code 096 (Emerson) works to turn the TV off/on, adjust volume, etc. The problem is I can't get it to access the video function so I can play my movies. When I press the two volume buttons on the TV at the same time, I get a menu but there is no option for video. There is setup (no video option), clock set, audio and language - no video. The ilo model is DTV2784. Any suggestions on how to program the TV so I can play the DVD's?

I Believe You Can Go To Channel 2 And Right Below Those Channels Are The 3 Video Channels Turn On Your Dvd Player And Go Through Them. If That Doesn't Work Try Looking At The Buttons On Your Tv For A Tv Video. Make Sure You Dont Have A Tv Video Button On Your Remote If You Do Then Just Click It Till You Find The Appropriate Video Channel.

U can buy a universal remote anywhere like wal mart,target,ext.The problems with a univeral remotes is,u must enter codes for ur tv model,when u buy it u must enter codes to work.Sometime all the codes in the universal manual u enter will not work.That why spend more money best to buy the original remotes.Try website 1-800-remotes Factory oringinal.Buy an exact as the original remote.
This happens with some manufactures. Thankfully some codes will work with other TV's. This is the "Code Search" starts. Your remote has a way to try other codes to see if they will work.
If all else fails it appears Sony has a support hot-line available at 1-800-822-2217 that maybe able to help you find the code. Just make sure you cover all the troubleshooting steps you've already done.
Found a remote that works... At walmart of all places..
The brand is AVEX... Available at walmart in a generic purple box that just says "UNIVERSAL remote control" on the front, and AVEX on the back. This is the 6 components remote. They sold a 8-9 one in darker box, and i assume it will also work too. 3 Digit program code was "472"
The product SKU from mine is 6 56787 10086 2
www.universalremote.com listed on the box.
URC-R6 appears to be the model number of the remote.
Hope this helps. I tried 7 name brand remotes before deciding to give what looked to be a waste of time remote a try... Figured i would help some people out who seem to have the same problem...
