Any insight would be appreciated... :-0

    I purchased a Sylvania television at a yard sale but it had no remote. I am unable to change the inputs as there is no option in the menus to do so. Several Universal remotes were tried with no luck. (Perhaps the receiver is bad as I can't imagine why a "universal" wouldn't work on a major brand like Sylvania.) Changing the channel to below 2 does not roll through the front or rear AV inputs. Autoprogramming even with a signal coming from a DVD player into the A/V jacks doesn't detect the A/V channel. About the only thing left to try is an adapter to the coax jack that can be set for channel 2 or 3 if such a thing even exists anymore. Pity; it has a great picture and doesn't appear to be very old! Looks like no video games or DVD's on this one! (I guess Al Bundy was right, "Yard sales are where idiots sell junk to bigger idiots.")

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.

How do I change inputs?

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.

I cant figure out how to change the channel to input/video on my broadband tv without a remote

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.

My Sony tv turn on but the only thing showing is Video 4 , I don't have a remote, I tried tv and video no nothing.

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.

Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection

The manual states that the default association of each digital input in as follows:
  • Optical 1: CD
  • Optical 2: MD
  • Optical 3: TV
  • Coax: DVD
Use the "Signal select" button to set the receiver to use a digital input, and the Dolby/DTS button (above "Signal select") to enable decoding.

As samz11 stated above, a remote is required to alter the digital input mapping.

Nintendo Wii box light is on but no picture or sound from my tv

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.

I can't figure out how to change the input to video on a broksonic tv

Hi, the remote has a TV/Video key, it's used to change the modes, it needs the remote control, the input cannot be selected from the front panel.
