I recently acquired an older Zenith tv. I would like to use it with my satelite cable, but I will have to be able to use the Dishnetwork's romote with it. Is this possible? Serial # 722-15170744
Model # D0920A [Manufactured in April,1987]

Re: Is my tv remote control capable?
I would suggest calling Dish Network they should know whether the remote will support the TV. But in actually, None of the so called universal remotes I have seen, even the remote for the Satellite receiver, support all of the features on a device other than volume and power on and off, so you have to have the remotes for each of the devices you have in relation to your entertainment center handy, such as DVD Player, a sound system, the television itself. Hope this helps.

If you have a satelite provider, that provides HD, which is to say if you have an HD box, you will be able to use the satelite romote to control the TV, generally they are universal. Furthermore, you can go out and buy a universal remote from Radio Shack or your local electronics store
I have an RCA televison with Guide Plus Gold and it works great. I am not sure about the Zenith and how it works on it. When I turn on the TV with the remote the guide comes up on screen. I just have to press the guide button on the remote to remove that screen and watch the show. If I don't press anything it will go off after 2 minutes. If you have never set up the guide it will probably show up all the time. You will have to go through and program it so it will know if you have cable, over the air or satelite. I don't have satelite service so I don't know if it will reconize it. I know it works with over the air and cable.
I have never seen this tv have a problem that turns the picture all green. What is signal source, (cable or satelite) and are you using component cables? Make sure your cables are good and that they are plugged in properly on both ends as a defec or loose component cable or a bad cable or satelit receiver can cause this problem.
