Question about Televison & Video
Which TV do you have? For most "modern tvs", there will be an input or source button on the remote. Press this button to switch inputs and eventually get back to the TV source. Some TVs have a button for the Input or Source on the TV itself. On a few older TVs, the button was marked TV/Video but did the same thing.
An exception: if you have a cable or satellite set top box, you may need to do an extra step. These require you to set the TV on a specific channel depending on the box (Ch3, 4, 60 (Dish Network)) Thus you need to change the input and then the channel if needed.
If you have a tv that uses the input button on the remote but does not have a matching button on the TV, then you need to replace the remote with one that has the feature. Some original remotes are available from remotes.com (search using the tv model number but not the manufacturer). Universal remotes may have a matching button except for the cheapest ones. However, you will need to try multiple codes to find the one that enables the input button. The universal remotes that can be programmed via a USB connection with a computer are the fastest to set up.
For a combination TV, you may need to press a TV/VCR or TV/DVD button on the remote.
I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with your TV model number and brand. I may have the manual available.
