    A customer called asking how to switch his TV to the VIDEO mode to
    watch a DVD movie. He lost his original remote. If I remember
    correctly, this chassis can only be switched to VIDEO by the original
    remote. Has anyone tried doing so successfully using the front buttons
    only ? Thank you.

    I have a couple where you select channel 02 then press down channel to get
    to 00 - video in.

    Maybe with a universal you can "set VCR channel".

    Another option might be to autoprogram it with an active input into the
    video jack.

    Ideas anyway, not sure if they'll work.

    Dunno if it's helpful or not, but with this 169 of
    recent vertical intermittent notoriety, you select
    audio/video/svga inputs as "channels"

    All I need do is press setup (on the front panel) and
    then continue pressing it to scroll down. Eventually
    coming to 3 option lines... vcr1, vcr2, and one other.
    For each of these I can set a "channel"

    From that point on, selecting that channel transparently
    uses the rear panel vcr1, vcr2, and one other (dish?) inputs.

    Take care.
