Input Selection without a Remote

RCA F27442 TV. Is there a way to select the front video input without using a remote? The remote was discarded when a converter box was attached, and a power outage apparently reset the input.

    I liked this idea, but the channel + - keys bring up the next available channel; I couldn't find a way to select zero or 00 without the remote.

    I have a SystemLink 5 Universal Remote and it won't let me choose channel 00 either. There is no input button on the remote, and I don't have the original remote (bought the tv at a garage sale). My son wants to plug in his WII but we can't get it to show on the TV. Any suggestions?

    Also have this model F27442 and do not have the original remote. 2 Universal remotes will not activate the input option, so there is no way to use the front RGB connection. I have tried all codes for RCA sets with no solution.

On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.

    Duh! Without the ability to manually input numbers, or an up-dn selection available, how do you input "channel 00"?

Can a symphonic TV model WF203 be put in video mode without a remote


Only if you have a source button on the tv itself. On many of the newer sets you have to have the remote to access your other inputs. Without the remote, nada. And forget universal remotes - they only provide for the most basic functions and video source is not one of them. And you get hosed on original remotes.

F27442 - How to display signal from front panel RCA video input


Hello,
To display signal from that input you will need to change the input on the tv. This can be done either on the front of the tv, or by using your remote control. First power on and connect the desired source. Next on the tv or on your remote, press a button labeled either source or tv /video and scroll through by continuously pressing until you see the source you connected appear on the tv display.
Good Luck

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT...


Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.
