I purchased a switch box from radio shack to switch my components. But, you have to get up and press the switch. I'm afraid there is no real easy way to do that without either doing it manually or using a remote. You can program a universal remote so it will change the input if you are missing a remote. Good luck!

    Any programmable universal remote will work. You just need the code for the Insignia TV. IF the code is not on the list that comes with the remote you purchase, just seach on line for codes for insignia or check back here! Good LUCK

We lost the remote and I can't change the air to cable without going to menu so I need know what I can do or what codes to use the model is gpx kl10085

I believe you need to hunt on Ebay for the correct remote. Most Universal remotes won't do what the factory ones can do.

I have a Sansui SLED 2280 that I'd like to use without cable input. How do I switch to regular over the air (no cable) antenna? Thanks

To switch from cable to air or vice versa on most Sansui flat screen tv's including the SLED2280, go into the menu. Select "channel" on the screen. Press "enter" on the remote. Select "auto ch mem" on the screen. Press "enter" on remote. Select "signal type" on screen. Press right arrow button or right volume button on remote to change signal type (cable or air). To program channels into tv, select "automatic search" on screen then press "enter" on remote. Wait for search to finish.
I hope this helps you.
