    My new house has a Sylvania TV from way back in the day. Model SRT2319. It does not have a remote control with it, although it apparently came with one. I want to use it for my 360 until I can afford a newer TV.

    And there's the snag. Is it possible to switch input to the front inputs without having the remote control? :eek:

    Thanks!

    the friendly manual shows a game button on the back. You might try that if you don't feel like running out for a remote.

    That button is on the remote, not the back of the TV.

    I got a universal remote today, all it's buttons work EXCEPT the input button. Phh. So I found an OEM one on ebay, Hopefully that will work.

    Have you tried a different code on the universal remote?

    Sometimes you can hit 00 or 91 to change the inpot to the aux mode. if thats a possible solution....

    I inherited a Sylvania SRT2127S and have this exact same problem. I don't have the original remote and can't seem to get a universal remote to function at all.

    Were you ever able to figure out a non-remote solution?

    Did the OEM remote you ordered work out for you?

    Yes, the OEM remote worked perfectly.
