After you hold down the P button and the leds blink you put in 996 then the led's blink again. Once this happens all you do is put in the channel you want as a favorite, and then hit P For codes less that 4 or 5 digits you hit the enter key. ANd it isn't clear how many digits to put in for a channel with 2 digits but it looks like if you put in anything under 99 you will want to put in 099 098 097 etc etc... Hope that helps some

Program favorites on a digital stream converter box with the remote.


The last time I saved favorite channels, I had to go to my "On Demand" screen. Then, put it on the channel you want to add as a favorite. The icon I had was a "heart" and you scroll to the heart icon and click. It should add that channel to your favorites. An easy way might be when you're watching that channel, to hit "favorite" on your remote as the gentleman above suggested. I believe it depends on your Cable Provider and the type of remote you have. You can always call their technical support # and ask. They'd be happy to walk you through it.

To see if the problem is with your remote control, go to the receiver and use the channel up/down buttons on the receiver itself. If you can change your channels with the buttons on the receiver, the batteries in your remote control probably need to be changed.

If you can't change channels from the receiver, turn off the receiver. Then unplug it for at least 15 seconds. Plug the receiver back it and turn it on. Again, try changing channels from the receiver itself.

Tune to a channel, and while programming is playing, try tuning to the missing channel by entering the channel number on the remote control keypad to see if channels change. Do not try to select the channel from a channel list, program guide, or favorites list.

If this approach takes you to the correct channel, you need to adjust your favorites list function. Press the "guide" button on your remote. Look for a button on your remote called "fav" or "list." Press it several times and watch for an indication at the top of the guide that you are moving from "all channels" to a particular favorites list.

If you are locked on one channel only, your Channel Lock feature is likely active. Consult your owner's manual to unlock the rest of your channels. See your owner's manual for information on managing favorite channel lists and locking out channels. Enter your password, if necessary.

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How...


  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

I want to program the digital channels onto numbers on the remote.


The remote will have a DASH or DOT key to let you enter the digital channel numbers directly,
as in: for digital channel 53.2, you'd enter "5" "3" DASH "2"

To program digital channels into a FAVORITEs list, you'd have to provide the Mfr/model
of the remote control itself...

Programming RCA converter box remote control with Phil/Mag TV---


Good day,
You should have the instruction guide. If not look below. It's there but look closely for the guide itself and how to increase it's size to readable.

Check on the back of the TV to see if there is a 3 and 4 setting, If so, set to 3.
With nothing connected to the tv, and using the tv's remote, scan for channels. It should come up with only channel 3.
Then using the remote with advanced options, set the the input to either antenna or auto.

Connect the antenna cable to input on the converter box. Using the supplied cable connect the output from the converter box to
the TV. Turn the TV on first, followed by the converter box.
Then follow the instructions.

Not really easy so you'll have to fight your way thru it.
Finding the right setting for the antenna will probably take the most time, requiring a station scan after each adjustment.

Uniden/bearcat BC-100


If it's indeed a BC-100 and not a BC-100xlt, the 16 channels are easy to program and use.
1. Press MANUAL 3 MANUAL with 3 being the number of the channel you wish to program.
2. Enter the frequency for that channel (e.g., 162.55) followed by ENTER.
3. Follow the same sequence for each channel you wish to program, except that pressing MANUAL after you program a channel will advance the scanner to the next channel.

To scan, simply press the SCAN button after your frequencies are programmed.
