That particuar remote might not work for this television completely. that is not unusual at all. it will understand some commands but not all of them. i would advise using a little black remote with white buttons that sells for $5 at the dollar general store. i have yet to see a tv that it does not work with. please rate me it would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Sharp Aquos 52" LC-52LE810UN. I turned the tv on and assuming that my cablevision box is working, what do I do in settings or other aspect of the tv to make the 1080i work. I have another box...


Actually the cablevision box determines the 1080i. Once it is set on that box the television simply displays it. The cablevision box will have to be connected to the television with component cables or one hdmi cable in order for you to be able to choose 1080i on it. Usually there are resolution numbers on the side of the cable box that tell you if it's on 480, 720, or 1080. There is a red light next to the one the cable box is displaying. If this is not the right kind of cable box for that then you will need to get another one from Cablevision or just eliminate the box entirely and run the cable straight to the television. Yes you can do that and use the television's digital tuner for a beautiful, crisp picture. After removing the cable box and screwing the coax cable onto the back of the television you will have to press the input button and scroll up to TV and press enter (use a Sharp remote). Then press menu and scoll over to setup and down to CH setup. Then scroll to CH search and begin searching for the available channels. You will now use a Sharp remote to change channels.

Unable to program remote


Have you tried the "KMC" code (should be 219). KMC is Konica Minolta who used to make Konka TVs. Here is the link to the programming instructions and all the codes if you need; http://optimum.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/optimum.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1420 If that code doesn't work, then apparently philips codes may work for your model (164, 005, 038, 093, 127, 070, 003, 004, 059, 236, 238, 243, 247, 199) (sorry you have to work through them one at a time). Hope the KMC one works :)

Why is there a long delay changing channels on my new Sanyo HDTV?


Are you connected to a cable box from your cable TV service Provider and use this device to select the channel you want to view? I have an HDTV which has the QAM tuning feature. Changing channels was instant until I accepted an offer from Cablevision for a 1 year rent free box and remote combo. The tuning box is a digital & analog Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4200 HD with a card slot for your subscription specs. This bypasses the tuner in your TV and the TV functions as a monitor.

If this is similar to what you have and you don't care about the channel/current program on screen display that appears for several seconds before the channel selection completes, perhaps the cable co. can adjust your box to supress this display if it will speed up the channel selection.

There is another annoying problem with this box. If you have a fraction of a second ac power interruption which might not even cause your computer to reboot, the cable box goes into a reinitialization that could take 5 minutes or longer. In my opinion, it is not worth the $6.50 per month charge we will receive when the year is up.

New Insignia 19 inch when hooked up to Optimum Cablevision does NOT get any cable channels..JUST basic channels...OLDER TVS all get the Cablevision full spectrum of chanels. Does it require a BOX to work...


yes, the premium channels are in a band width only reachable with a cable box. The standard or what would be over the airwave channels are available without a "box" in the basic cable tier.
