I am having trouble...

I am having trouble setting up my set top box with my new sony tv

Technician's Assistant: What Sony model do you have? How old is it?

It's a sony bravia 65"X930E

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes, i've been using the sony remote for a couple of months now

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your Bravia? What happened right before this?

I've never set up my box with the tv

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

I can switch over to that input and then begin using the cable remote, but i'd like to control my set-top box with the tv remote
