Clayboy these highlights will only become selectable if you are
actually plugged in to the pc port (aka vga) this is the blue
female socket .if your running hdmi through your computer to tv
it will defaolt and pc options wont be available. also if you
use this vga/pc connection be sure to use the remote and set
tv input to pc .
hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
1. Turn on a device (e.g., VCR or DVD
Player) and, if applicable, insert
media, (e.g., video cassette or disc).
NOTE: Please read steps 2 to 6 completely
before proceeding. Highlight or write
down the codes and device you wish to
program before moving on to step 2.
2. On the remote control, press a
device key once (i.e., AUX or TV).
NOTE: Use the AUX key to program
control of an Audio Amplifier or
Receiver, a DVD Player, a Home-
Theater-In-A-Box Device, a PVR (or
DVR), or a VCR.
3. Press and hold Setup until the
selected mode key blinks twice,
then release Setup.
4. Locate the code for your device in
Manufacturer's Codes on the back
of this user guide. Brands are listed
in alphabetical order with the
most popular codes listed first.
5. Enter the first four-digit code for
your device. If you perform this
procedure correctly, the selected
mode key will blink twice.
NOTE: If you enter an invalid code, the
selected mode key will display one long
blink and exit the programming mode.
Repeat steps 2 to 5 with a valid code.
6. Aim the remote control at your
device and press Power once. The
device should turn off. If it does
not respond, repeat steps 2 to 6,
trying each code listed for your
brand until you find one that
works. If it still does not work, try
Searching For Your Code.
NOTE: If the device does not have a
Power key, press the (Play) key

• Maybe the remote isn't aimed directly at the component (DVD, TV, VCR) that you're trying to operate.
• Maybe remote is not in TV Mode. Press the TV button so remote will control TV.
• Maybe batteries in remote are weak, dead, or installed incorrectly. Put new batteries in the remote. (Note,
if you remove the batteries, you may have to reprogram the remote to operate other components.)
How to Use the Remote Control to Complete
the Initial Setup
The technical term is "Navigation"- how you move through the
on-screen menus. The method is the same throughout the menu
screens: highlight your choice and select it.
To highlight a menu item, press the arrow buttons on the remote
to highlight one of the items listed on the screen. Use the up or
down arrow button to move up or down. Use the right or left
arrow button to move right or left.
To select the item that you've highlighted, press OK.
Note: Highlighted means that the menu item stands out from other
menu items on the list (appears darker, brighter, or a different color).
Turn on the TV
Press TV on the remote, or press POWER on the TV's front panel.
Note: Pressing the TV button not only turns on the TV, but puts the remote
into TV mode. "TV mode" means that the buttons on the remote control
operate the TV's functions.
Complete the Initial Setup
The menu system in your TV allows the TV's features to work
properly. The first time you turn on your TV, the SETUP screen
appears with Language highlighted. The default language is
English. To choose another language, press the right arrow
button on the remote.
If these doesn't work, the infrared sensor inside your Tv has got damaged and should be replaced. OK.
