Re: My new universal remote won't switch my tv over to...

Do you still have the RCA package? check if it's capable of use with those brands.

So you can change things on your tv, except switch over to dvd player ?

Does it have a "Game" button or "Aux" maybe even "Dvd"
try buttons with names along those lines.

Well, thats all for now, I'll be back with more in a bit...

Change from TV mode to AV mode for a Hitachi C28W4110SN

There should be buttons somewhere on the TV itself to switch input modes. Look around where the power button is located and see if there is a menu button you can access. Then use channel up/down and volume up/down to scroll thru modes to find input

Hope this helps

Bizzare Color Problem

I normally find that the DVD is either in the progressive scan or interlaced mode. If the DVD is in analog inputs (video inputs), then, it should be in the interlaced mode. If the DVD is in the component input, then, it should be set to the progresive mode. On older DVDs, the switch to turn it to the proper mode is on the back or bottom of the DVD. Newer units are on the remote that says progressive or on the menu of the DVD. The owners manual should have instructions on how to change it.
