I recently purchased this TV for a reduced price from Best Buy. It was only 50 dollars, yet it did not come with a manual or remote control. When I tried hooking up my Xbox 360 to play some games, I could not find an input channel or anything else of the sort. I tried changing the mode to AV and then DVD, but to no avail.

You should be able to do a channel search and come across the inputs either at the upper end or the lower end of the channel search. Using the channels on the TV itself, not cable or satellite, scroll through the channels until the desired input is found. Once on the desired input open the DVD player and insert a DVD and close the drawer. The DVD should start to play automatically. When it gets to the place on the DVD to actually "play movie" press the select/enter button on the remote. As for the replacement remote I would get a universal remote. They are far fairer in price than an original replacement remote and every bit as reliable. Just make sure to take the model of your TV/DVD player with you to make sure the remote you purchase is compatible. You probably need to go no further than your local hardware store or department store. Save on the shipping too. However if you are set on getting the original remote here is a place http://www.orion.newremotecontrol.com/catalog_item.php?catnum=076R0DT090 they also sell a few generic remotes for a few dollars less.
toshiba will sell you a new one at about 800 dollars (worked at best buy and tha was the price for a 42 in screen) the best bet is to either take it to a local tv repair shop or buy a new tv at that price. new egg and tigerdirect.com have that model for about 800 dollars alone

You may have to buy a new player! because its not compatable ( you need one that plays DVD+ DVD- and dvd RW!) and the players that play these formats are no more then a regular dvd player (seen them for as low as $30.00 at wall mart!
Sometimes, hitting "1" on your remote when it's loading bypasses the region sector and allows the movie to be played without functionality of menus. If that doesn't work you can either play it on your computer or search for software that'll put the movie onto your harddrive taking region block off and with the right knowhow back it up onto a dvd blank that'll work. Though if you aren't good with computers, the best way is to buy a cheap $20-$50 dvd player that can be remote programmed to be region free or buy your machine from any Chinatown store.
In order to play Blu-Ray discs, you must unfortunately own a Blu-Ray player. Neither HD-DVD players nor Progressive Scan/Upconvert DVD players are capable of playing the discs, and standard DVD players are not able to recognize information on the discs due to how they are constructed.
Please keep in mind that there are always a number of options available to you, should you consider purchasing a Blu-Ray player. While the average asking price with many retailers for stand-alone Blu-Ray players is between $300.00 and $500.00, you can typically obtain an internal Blu-Ray drive for your computer for considerably less. Additionally, the Playstation 3 may also be a viable alternative - the current 40GB model not only plays Blu-Ray discs, but also has the added perk of being a video game console for around the same price as the average stand-alone Blu-Ray player.
Do you have your DVD player running through your receiver? You want the red and white (audio) cables to go from your DVD player to your receiver and the yellow (video) cable to go from your DVD player to your TV. Separate the red, white, and yellow cable into separate strands if you need to, but be careful not to tear the insulation. They should pull apart fairly easily. If I'm totally off or you're using a coaxial or component video/audio cables or a fiber optic cable, let me know. Hope this helps
