Re: magnavox with pic tube tv skips over channel 3..goes...
You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.
For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:
Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"
If that fails: Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections. You can press MENU on either the remote control or the front of the TV to access or remove the menu.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

According to the manual for the Magnavox 14MS2331/17B, you switch to the A/V input by pressing Ch+ or Ch- on either the TV or the remote until you see AV as the current option. (Thus you have to scroll down from Channel 2 or up from Channel 69 for an OTA signal. For cable TV, the AV will be reached by Ch - from channel 1 or Ch + from channel 125.) See page 3 (7 of the PDF) here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/14ms2331_17b/14ms2331_17b_dfu_aen.pdf .
Since it is possible to skip channels by editing the channel list, you may need to check if the AV option has been skipped. To do this, press Menu. Use the up/down buttons to navigate to Install and press the right button to enter this menu. Highlight the Channel Edit line and press the right button to check this. Once in this sub-menu, use the left/right buttons to scroll through the Channel number options (or use Ch+/Ch- to see the stored list). You can also type in a channel number on the remote. Press the down arrow to change to the line that reads Skipped. Use the left/right arrows to change between Yes or No. (No indicates you can reach the channel with the Ch+/Ch- buttons.) Use the Up arrow to return to the channel number line to scroll to other channels. Press Status/Exit to leave the menu system. See page 10 (14 of the PDF) for details.
U still have the tv original remote?Yes,must used it to get into chanel 3.Because the manual buttons channels up and down on the tv bazel frame will skip channel 3.Only able get into channel 3 by manual channel buttons up or down only if it was save in the tv memory.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote.
Below are some places where you can purchase a symphonic remote control. But if you don't fancy buying one why not tune channel 8 and upwards to the station's that your are after and just forget about the 3,4,5,6,7. My quess is that the tv system is set to skip these channels. If you go to Menu > tv settings, check out the channels that you are skipping, it should be in the installation part of the tv setting's menu. Make sure that where it say's SKIP > OFF on all of the missing channel's.
Hope this is of some help. Bit long winded but hey! :-)
Enter "3" or "03" on the remote and press OK/Enter. If the channel-skip feature is set on for Channel 3 you cannot get to it using the up/down buttons. Go to the setup menu to disable the channel-skip for Channel 3 if you want to tune it with up/down buttons. If you have no remote you should be able to access the menu from buttons on the front of the TV. (They may be inside a door or panel.)
