can you take a pix of the menu screen on the tv?
what happens when you go below CH2?

It will go to channel 1, then to 125 if I keep going...

I cannot take a picture of the menu screen, but can tell you it says

is there a input button on the tv?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I don't see one anywhere.... all there is is menu, channel up and down, volume up and down, power... on the front under the screen

What I do have is a remote control for directv... is there any way to make that work? I have tried to set that remote to work the sylvania but have never been successful. I may try to play with that a little right now...

I am beginning to think it is a lost cause...

You can go to Walmart
for $5.00 purchase a PHILIPS MAGANVOX universal remote control
it will have the input button you need
you may not even have to program it for Sylvania
