Unfortunately, that function is simply too advanced to access any other way but through an appropriate remote control unit. As this is such a highly sought TV by audiophiles who want an excellent listening experience for their older audio-DVDs, this remote control is readily available. One can buy a replacement, either a used original remote (model RCU81B) for between $8- $40 on eBay and other such sites, or brand new, for between $30- $35 through several different remote replacement companies. Simply search the words "Philips Magnavox RCU81B" to locate such sellers. You also have the choice of buying a clone- brand new, of course- for around $20. Most sellers of remotes on sites like eBay do warrant their used products, so there is no real reason not to go that route.

I just ran a quick check of an eBay seller with a $7.99 original remote, and not only does it look great, but it comes with a 100% guarantee. To get full functionality of your TV back, especially for one that offers as options as the TP2784C, that is a very small amount of money to pay. The seller even offers a "Best Offer" option, so who knows, you might try offering him $5 and see if he is willing to go for it!

Try remotes.com for a substitute remote. I believe the exact URL for your model is: http://remotes.com/store/curtis_mathes/cm27002s.html . Universal remotes are available but the cheap ones may not do all of the features of the original remote.

I hope this helps.

Can't watch dvd


You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

SWITCHING FROM TV MODE TO VIDEO MODE


Hi, If the AV button is not in your remote, then perhaps it is part of the Ch up/down buttons - meaning right after your last programmed Channel would be AV before the first program Channel. Although I have yet to come across such a case, I have worked on units/remotes that have this feature of the AV included in the channel memory. Good luck and kind regards.
