Demo Mode wont go away!!

TV works great sounds great but the demo function keeps coming up. I thought it might have been a weak battery in the TV remote or DTV remote. To my dismay it wasn't the case. I removed both batteries and still the tv was acting up.I unplugged it for 1 min and plugged it back in, didn't work. Please help.. Capt Delo

I thought that model number looked familiar. The answer is a qualified yes. If you have a Magnavox or a Philips remote it should work. If you have a universal remote try to search for a code that will control the box.

Just try connecting the input to another TV and check whether the same problem comes. If it does, the problem is with the input. If not, the signal strength is not good enough to the microcontroller IC to switch off the mute. Normally when the signal is missing or weak, audio mute gets operated.

Try a universal remote, however I would advice you to try the buttons on the set to check if it works. It might just be a problem with the TV itself..........sodeep

Vizio remote

The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.
