Question about Philips Magnavox Learning Universal Remote
They have new replacements at some places, but none of them have the one important button to the function I need access to.
These TVs have a thing called ''Auto IntelliSense Focus'', which realigns the convergence if it gets out of whack. I just had to replace my two convergence chips, and now the three color tubes are not overlapping correctly so the picture is triple image. Normally you just push the IntelliSense button on the remote, and it automatically aligns everything correctly in about 15 seconds or less. Well I am the second owner of this TV and did not get a remote with it. I have been searching high and low for hours today and no one has an original, anywhere I've checked.
The TV was actually made by Hitachi, even though it's sold by Philips in a Philips cabinet.
I need to know (preferably) where I can find a new old stock, or even a used original remote for this 2001 model TV. The new replacements won't work. I don't understand why Philips bothered to make a new replacement remote for this set, but didn't include such an obviously important feature...????
Is there any chance that there is a Hitachi remote that has this IntelliSense button I need? Is there any other way to access this fuction and properly, automatically align the three color tubes?
From what I have determined in my searches, from talking to people who actually had this model TV, the convergence chips going bad was a common problem. It sure seems to me that there should be a bunch of them sitting around in repair shops for parts and having remotes just gathering dust. Why can't I find one anywhere? I have even checked ebay and Amazon, as well as used remote dealers online.
The model number of the TV is 55PP9401.
Model # of remote is RC201601
Part # 312814713082
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
There is an IntelliSense option on the on screen menu which can be accessed from the front of the set. However, when you execute that menu option, it tell you to press the IntelliSense button on the remote. I think what is needed is a way to program this function into a programmable remote.

If the Menu is legible on screen IntelliSense is available under the Picture tab within the TV's internal menu. You may be able to do it "blindly" by following the user guide available at http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/5/55pp9401/55pp9401_dfu_aen.pdf
