Toshiba 36A50 no longer responds to remote controls.

The only common problem would be on the Toshiba Remote. Make sure you have the switch on the remote set to "TV' and not Audio, or Video. Beyond that, if you have a digital camera or a cell phone with a camera with a viewing display, point the remote at the camera and push any button. If it is sending IR, you will see the flashing from the remote on your camera/phone display.That will just confirm the remote is sending signals. The only other possibility is that your IR receiver on the TV is bad, This happens, but it's not very common. Hope this helps

I lost the remote and cannot remove the PIP.

Hi, I have the same TV, remote too. From what I can see you will need the remote to turn off the PIP, but if you unplug the TV and the plug it in again it may reset it to original values. As long as it is plugged it will retain certain low power settings.
If your Comcast remote is a learning remote, you can probably program it to mimic/replace the remote you lost, but you will need the codes from the Sony remote, or borrow one so the codes can be "learned" by the Comcast or some other learning remote. The codes would likely be available online, from Sony.
Worst case - I'll buy for you a cheap learning remote and dump the codes from mine if you want.

Also, you may find a used remote on line.

36A50 Digital ready?

Hi duce1500,

Unfortunately, the 36A50 is not HDTV-ready. That means you will need a converter box. Here is a link to the model's specs, which includes this information:

I should mention, however, that if it's connected to cable (or certain satellite services), you won't need a converter to watch the TV - you'll receive the digital signal (although you won't have the 1080-pixel HD resolution - the 36A50 only has 850 lines of resolution).

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
