I recently was given a Hitachi 35CX45B 35 (made Oct 1996) and don't have the original remote - how does one get rid of the PIP screen - universal remotes don't seem to help
Model: 35CX45B 35
Universal remotes don't seem to have any effect
Hi and welcome to justanswer.to answer your question;You are correct about not being able to operate the PIP function with a universal remote , as a matter of fact i haven`t seen one yet that can do it .
So it would mean that the original remote would be the solution.
I have here a few addresses where you can get that remote or a substitute.
I`ll start with your remote part number ; CLU-417UI
You can use that number if you`d like to do your own shopping or you can take a look at the links below;http://www.replacementremotes.com/HITACHI/Buy-CLU-417UI-CLU417UI-HL00227-TV-Remote-Control.html
