RCA rcr311w remote won't change tv channel to Video 1 or Video 2 channel

I have an RCA rcr311w universal remote which changes tv channels fine. However, I cannot find how to change the channel to watch a dvd or my camcorder. I cannot see the menu for the dvd player/recorder because I can't get the tv to this channel. With my old remote, I pressed the Input Key. On this remote, the Input Key only changes the tv up and down one channel. How do I get to the Video 1 or Video 2 so that I can see my dvd menu?

My rca remote turns the toshiba tv on but it dont change channels


U are using an RCA remote with Toshiba tv. You are lucky that it even turns the set on. You have different remote frequencies involved and need to use the Tosiba remote or a universal remote that will operate volume, channels and power.

Auxillary channel for dvd


You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.

Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.

If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.

This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.

If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.

Rca tv and rca remote


Is the remote control the one that came with the set or is it a universal? If the remote came with the tv, it may have a bad internal rubber pad board ( not fixable ), if it's a universal remote, you may need to change the code of add the codes for the dvd. The dvd and the tv work internally on seperate codes. I hope this has helped

Programming my rca universal remote for basic cable the stations wont turn


I can only suggest that you Double check you have the connections correctly set ie. coax ariel to ,(dvd /digi box reciever ect...)
Also check again (& i know this is state the obvious)
your tv manual. IF you havent a manual do a google search for your tv (make & model) & search for a manual.

Ive have had a simmular experience when programming channels to a Vid-Recorder & when i finished the channels dissapeared.

I realised I didnt have the video set to the correct channel with the tv usually channel 9 or the highest channel on the tv.
So i waisted a good half hour for nothing.
