Hello, Sorry you're having problems. You were talking to a computer before, I am the actual tech helping you and am searching for the remote and manual now (Olevia has been out of business for over 7 years).

First, the original remote for the Olevia set is available at the link below for under $10:

Unfortunately the manual is no longer available for this set, however I can help you with what you've posted.

With the remote, all you need to do to adjust colors, brightness, etc. is to use the MENU button, select "Picture" and then scroll up and down throughout the options.

Then as far as changing the video Input, simply use the "Source" button on the lower left corner of the remote.
