I bought a used symphonic tv model ST131B and I can only get the lower channels without having to pay for a cable box. It needs to be programmed for the higher channels but a universal remote will not program it. I need the original remote that was made for that model. Any idea where I can get one or another way to get the higher channels without putting a cable box on it. I have cable but its split into the room so I don't need a box.

Yes go to menu with the buttons on your TV and go to CATV sometime u can press your channel button until your channels run out and if u keep pressing the channel button it will go into game mode or in other words switch to the RCA jacks in front of your TV
Can you get to inputs on your tv ? I would use these inputs rather than channel 3 because you'll get a better picture using the inputs rather than the tuner. They are in the back Yellow for video and red and white for audio. But without the remote you can go into the menu to see if you can manuel program your channels but most of these sets you can't do that . www.replacementremotes.com might have your remote should you need one . Good luck
Universal remote control are normally programmed for basic functions, ie. chennel up down, volume up down, numbers, etc.
This is even written in the manual that they do not guarantee that all functionality can be used.
Here are your options:
1. Try all the codes that match your TV, there is a slim chance that the other code have the functionality that you need.
2. Buy the original model remote control.
3. If you know of someone that have the same TV, buy a universal remote control with 'learning' function and copy the signal from the original remote control.
I have the same problems before. Now I use my Casio wrist remote control to copy the special functions such as A/V so that even if the original remote control is lost, I can still use these functionality
