It only does those features. You need to use the original remote to access menus. Your original remote is the AKB72914042 remote control.

    I own the LG smart remote, model # AKB732955. This is different than the type of remote you are listing. It is supposse to work with my tv but I can only get the on/off button and the volume control to work on this remote. It has the feacher of being able to point to the tv screen and be able to interact with the menu on the screen. I should not need another remote because that defeats the whole purpose of this type of remote.

I have provided a link with instructions on how to program the new remote to your Sony TV. The link contains our different receivers. Select your receiver model, then a PDF document will open with the instructions for programming the remote to your TV. It begins with step 5. I hope this helps.

Programming the remote to TV:

Sony TV codes: 500, 590, 000, 002, 073, 511, 514, 546, 550, 567, 578, 640, 670, 690, 758, 778

How do I get it to interact with the available menus?

I pretty sure that is all it supposed to do. You will need the other remote that comes with the tv to do the menus and other features.
