Hello, Sorry you're having problems. Offhand, and unfortunately- Yes you do need the remote to remove the Video 2 icon from the screen- it is the "Display" button on the remote. As far a the video game screen being over-sized, that requires more info: 1) What brand/model video game console is this? 2) What cabling/connections are being used to connect the console to the TV? 3) What is the model number off of the back of the Trinitron?

Additionally, the solution for the Video Game ( I just found) is the "Picture Mode" button- also only available on the original remote. You can purchase the original remote at the link below for under $10 shipped to you:
