Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, which Foxtel receiver please?

And if already connected by an HDMI cable, have you tried pressing the Input source selection button of the Toshiba 40CV550A's original remote and then ▼ button couple of times until HDMI1 or HDMI is selected and the Foxtel program is shown?

If the Foxtel receiver is already connected by an HDMI cable to either of the TV's HDMI port (1 or 3), then using the 40CV550A original remote:

  • • press the -> button on the original remote (below button 9);
  • • selection of video input / sources would be displayed;
  • • press ▼ button a couple of times untiul HDMI1 is selected (if Foxtel connected to HDMI 1 input port);
  • • press OK button.

Thank you for the pictures; just now.

To my understanding, the remote control for a Toshiba 40CV550A is a CT-90283 similar to the product shown HERE while a suitable substitute is HERE. Please note that the Input source selection button is below the 9 button.
