If you have lost the remote, go to any electronics store and buy a universal one. I have programmed many generic remote controls, and they all work fine for adjusting the video inputs. Not all television sets allow their video inputs to be switched without the remote. Most likely you will have to buy a replacement.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

A better remote control is a Logitech Harmony remote. It will work every other component in your audio/video system and will never become obsolete. It programs from their website, so if you ever get a new TV or change brands of audio components, you simply revisit their website to program in the changes.
This problem may be more complex than just the selection of a channel to receive video. The first problem is what channel to receive the video. Usually its received on channel 3 or 4. You select that on the video output and match it on the TV. That assumes your recorder is attached via the RF (antenna) connection. If its hooked up via the component connect then you must have a remote to select IN1 or IN2 on the TV to receive video. Remote controls are available on line. Do a search on your TV model and remote control.
If it shows 'Video-4' you have to input video signals to its video-4 input terminal. No other terminal will receive any signal. To say more, you can't select its other inputs/TV, without its remote control. No universal remote control will go. Try to get its original number remote control. Contact the authorized service center for Sony to buy a genuine one.
sometimes just sometimes tvs are funny, some tv's call it a "input select" others call it a "mode" or simply "input" and some dont have any they just want you to goto channel 2 on the tv and go back one more channel.
ushally all these modes are listed on the remote.
is it the origional remote? or is it a universal remote.
try those things above look over the remote again see if anything resembles any of that and if not
list the make and model of your tv and if your using a universal remote we will be able to figure something out for you.
