I too have a universal remote and do not know how to change the input so that I can switch to a DVD player that is also attached to the TV. THe model # is 27 GT610. I believe the original remote had an input button but my universal remote cannot change the input and I see no way to do it manually on the TV's menu. Is there a way to change the input?

Re: Cannot change input on GE CRT TV
Unfortunately, you may have to purchase a replacement for the original remote. Your only other option would be to try a different universal remote. If you buy another one, don't tear up the packaging when you open it, and hold on to the receipt. This way, if it doesn't work, you can return it to the retailer. To buy a replacement for the original remote, you'll have to contact the manufacturer.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or
s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the
front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it
asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video
Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to
the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select
Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input
you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video
(yellow composite cable).
If there is no input button on the tv itself to change the input then you will most likly need a remote. so you can get a universal remote and follow the instructions to adapt it to your set then you can use it to change the input. (you can get a universasl remote for like 10$) hope it helped
I'm not sure, but, if you use the channel down button on the television (below channel 2), the set may go to the video inputs.
If not a local retailer should have an inexpensive universal remote that would work on this set and have an input or tv/video button.
If you use a cable box, the remote can be programed also.

On some sets you can use the menu button to enter the menu and navigate to the page which shows what input is currently selected and change it there. If your set does not have that option, then you will need the remote to do it. I have found that on some universal remotes, the TV/VCR button switches the inputs on the TV when the remote is in the TV mode. If that button does not work on your remote for your set, and you have tried all possible codes for JVC TVs, then the only way to switch inputs is to invest a few dollars more and get an original remote from JVC or have the set repaired so that the input button on the TV functions again.
