I'm sorry, but you need the original remote or a universal that will activate the input on the tv.

I have a universal remote that is able to control some functions on my tv. I am trying to get the tv into auxiliary mode to connect it to my dvd player. How do I get it into auxiliary mode?

Usually the tv will switch automatically to the correct reception mode as soon as it detects an input into the scart socket.

I have and have had a number of tv sets and they all do this, though I do remember many years ago needing to select the AV channel. I believe these days the AV channel is for the other audio/video input sockets.

I suggest you connect your dvd player to the tv, switch on the tv and then press "play" on the dvd.
You should be able to enjoy viewing without further effort.

If you change channel on the tv to check what is on, the dvd reception will be lost. To save the trouble of disconnecting the scart lead and reconnecting I use a manual scart distribution box so simply pressing the button provides the required interruption so dvd viewing can be resumed.

Universal remote only works in tv mode, not good

you might need to use the aux mode on the remote to separately control the dvd part of the set. follow the instructions in your remote programming guide to set the remote for dvd in the auxillary mode and try it that way.

Sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

Remotes not working

well, sometimes the universal remote does not give you the whole functions, so it is better to work with the original one. you could fix it thought. here is how. most of the time, it just need cleaning. so get some denatured alcohol and clean the pc. do not apply any alcohol to the rubber button, that will ruin them. put it back together and give it a try again..good luck
