I am not able to switch from air setting to cable setting on tv with cable universal remote. The cable universal remote has been programmed to turn off/on tv and volume, but does not allow changing of channels. TV does not have manual menu on tv.

If it has a MENU button, press it and use the volume up and down to manipulate the choices, press menu again when you get to channel setup. you want AIR if using off air or Cable for cable. Next screen should say start and press menu again, the channels will start to cycle. If htat doesnt do it, you have a new model than the one I just did tonight. OneForall remotes will probably not have the setup button you need to autoprogram. Best bet is to find a Sanyo made universal remote or other Sanyo remote on Ebay as alot of the buttons are proprietary to manufacturer. Some TV's are useless without their own remote if not on a external tuner (cable SAT or digital)
You need to make sure the TV is set for "cable" tuning and not "standard" or "air." (If you are getting only local off-air channels and no cable stations at
all, be sure you have a good cable and connection to the set. Normally, even if the TV is set for "air" you will get the low-number cable channels 2-13.) This is usually a selection through the TV's set-up menu. With a universal remote, it may be difficult or even impossible to get to all the menu entries. Most replacement remotes don't support all the original remote functions. Try with yours and good luck. Once you get the TV set to the proper tuning, you should have all your cable channels.
It sounds like you might have a problem with the cable settings for your TV. There are a few standards for cable broadcasts and you may need to set it to standard or "STD". But since your menu button doesn't seem to be working this would pose a problem.
I would try and access your settings with the universal remote and look for something like antenna (ANT) and change it from air to cable. Depending on how old your TV is too there may be a small switch near your coaxial connection for the cable setting.
You have the set in standard air mode rather than cable mode. I am not familiar with your particular model, but you should be able to switch it to cable (assuming that it is cable ready). Check for a switch on the back or front. If there is no switch, there should be a menu option for changing the set to receive either over-air or cable. Check under the setup menus.
I had no luck finding anything for this model number even on the Mitsubishi site. How old is this set?
I would try programming the remote to some alternate codes for Mitsubishi products. It sounds like it's not programmed correctly. If you don't have the codes I would search the web for your brand of universal remote to see if you can find it's instructions. Lastly, on the topic of the remote, most universal remotes have a method to program even when you don't know the codes. This usually involves turning on the TV then putting the remote into a specific mode and hitting the power button until the TV shuts off.
How are you connecting the dvd/vcr? Are you using a single coaxial cable (the kind with the threaded connector) or are you using composite cables (yellow, red, and white plugs) or some other type of cable? If you're using the coaxial cable then you will typically find the signal on channel 3 or 4 on the TV when the source is set to tuner. If you're using one of the other methods then you will need to find a button on the set labled something like "Video Source" or "TV/Video". If you hit that button the TV will switch through it's input sources. It's very possible that this feature will not be available on your Universal remote even if it's programmed properly. You may have to select the source on the TV itself.
