Question about ESA Televison & Video
I have an ESA tube television that I have recently connected to an RCA digital to analog converter box to get on-air channels via an antenna. The remote supplied with the RCA converter's ESA codes do not seem to work. (the model of the converter + remote is DTA800B1). I can't find a switch or button on the television that changes the input; the channel buttons on the front do not go to AV1 or AV2, just the basic channels. Is there a) some codes for this remote that I'm not aware of, or b) some panel on the television that I'm not aware of. For what it's worth, I've already tried the Funai, Samsung, and Sylvania codes on the remote. Thank you!

If the TV has no RCA inputs, then there is no "AV channel" option for it on any remote, just channel selection.
The purpose of a RCA to SCART converter (aka RF modulator) is to convert one of your channels to an A/V input. They operate (standard) on either channel 3 or 4 as selected by a switch on the converter.
If your converter is unpowered, it's entirely possible that the signal coming out is not good enough to overpower your antenna signal. In this case, you may need a powered unit (such as this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=5806345&productCategoryId=abcat0107025&type=product&tab=7&id=1067388827858#productdetail) which can actively "shut off" the antenna input when signal is received from the auxiliary device.

During a recent move the remote was lost. I have the 6420FF in my son's room and trying to set up dvd and wi console set up, but cannot adjust tv via menu button on tv. Is there any way to set-up game system and/or dvd without remote?
