I'm trying to tune my Philips 26PFL5522D/05 tv digital channels without a remote. If i press the menu button I do not get 'Install' as an option in the drop down menu. Whats wrong?

I don't believe there are analog channels being broadcast anymore, or I know around here we don't have any, the set should pull up anything that is available without doing anything special to it. Below is a link that will explain it.
Are Analog Cable Channels Still Available Enlighten Me

How to program philips universal remote

  • Turn on your TV (or other device). You will have to do this manually until you program your Philips remote control.
  • Look for the "Setup" or "Code Search" button on the Philips remote control. Which button your remote has will depend on the exact Philips remote control you are using. This button may be a different color or may be labeled.
  • Hold either the "Setup" or "Code Search" button for about 10 seconds. If your remote has a light, the light should begin blinking. If there is no light, you can just count to 10 and then let go of the button.
  • Press the "TV" button on the remote to program the Philips remote to your television set.
  • Find and press either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the remote. Continue pressing either button until the television channel changes. This may take several minutes. Once the channel changes, press the "Power" button on the remote to turn off the TV. Your Philips remote will now be programmed to your television

    I lost the booklet with all the codes for my remote and i need the code to work my tv my tv is a symphonic

    I suggest you try these steps..

    1.Turn the television set on by pressing the "Power" button on the set.

    2. Find the "Code Search" button on the Philips Magnavox remote. This button will be labeled or will be a different color than the other buttons on the remote (depending on which Philips Magnavox remote you own)

    3. Hold the "Code Search" button down for about ten straight seconds. The light on the Philips Magnavox remote should then stay on.

    4. Starting pressing either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the Philips Magnavox remote. Continue pressing the same button until the television responds to the remote. It could take a few minutes for the channel to change so you'll need to have patience when searching for the remote code in this manner.

    5. Press the power button on the Philips Magnavox remote once the channel has changes. If the device shuts off, press the power button again to turn the TV back on. If the TV turns on, the remote has been programmed correctly. Repeat the entire process if your remote is not programmed.

    I hope this helps...

    Phillips 19 inch TV/VCR combo --no remote--can't change channels

    I cannot be sure of the exact model but... Press and hold the TV's volume up and volume down buttons simultaneously. On many older televisions, this opens the device menu without the use of a remote. Otherwise, use the menu button, which you can navigate in a similar fashion.
    Also, somewhere should be an input button. Press it multiple times times to switch between various inputs (the input must match whatever input you are using). Usually after these menus are opened you can use vol up vol down to change things.

    I ran the coax cable from the antenna to the RF IN connection, ran another cable from RF OUT to the television and used an HDMI cable to connect the DVR to the televison. The instructions say press '2'...


    Just a quick suggestion, many of those 2 then down type instruction actually mean hold the two then while holding it press the down button. Try that then if not reply back with the make and model # of the unit and I'll do a little digging for you.
