Get a universal remote or go online and order a replacement original remote for your model. Then use the remote to enter the menu, unlock any child locks, make sure the set is in standard cable mode and do an autoprogram.

You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.
For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:
Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"
If that fails: Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections. You can press MENU on either the remote control or the front of the TV to access or remove the menu.
I have a Philips universal remote. After trying half of the codes for Philips TVs, I came up with one which allowed access to the SETUP menu. It was 0621. This allowed me to run the auto channel setup, as well as fix some of the other functions. I don't know if this works with all remotes, but if you try different codes, you should get lucky. I'm sure it helps if you have a SETUP button on your remote.
It's possible that V-chip is locked.. Go to the menu and see if the lock option is active... The backdoor password is 0-7-1-1 twice.. Entering it the first time, if it times out, will display "incorrect" just enter it again and it should ask you for a new password..
If that's not it let me know and we'll try a couple other things.

This worked for my 20" Philips Magnavox 20MT4405/17 TV, it might work for you as well. DISCLAIMER: This is just a solution that I pieced together information from various internet sources, as I could not find a free copy of the service manual to verify this. Furthermore, I am not a technician of any sort.
Enter your TV's service menu by pressing this sequence of buttons on
your remote while the TV is on:
Use the arrows on your remote to scroll down to "Options", push the
right arrow to enter options.
Change the 7 options parameters in order to (write down the original values in case this does not solve):
OP1: 065 OP2: 215 OP3: 065 OP4: 162 OP5: 204 OP6: 201 OP7: 000
You need to enter all 3 digits for every number, even if there are zeroes. You use the numbers on the remote to do this.
Turn the TV off with the built in power button.
Unplug the TV for 10 seconds.
Plug the TV back in, turn it back on.
If this does not solve your problem, reset the values of the options in the service menu to the values you wrote down earlier because you have a different problem than what this fix works for.
To enter the service menu (use the button on the set)turn on the tv, then turn it off, using remote enter 2, 7, 1, then mute with in 5 seconds. Then press 9 and select V-S, display chnages from V-S and V-P. Then use channel up and down to adjust. When down use the power on the set to turn it off.
