URC 7820 remote, how to make it work on other TV functions like "Settings, INPUT, MENU, etc."

The best I can do is get this remote to work with volume and channel up/down.   Its a bit useless

if you need to change the INPUT like HDMI for a game box, or the antenna input for a over the air antenna.

I still have to reach for the TV remote.    Would anyone know if this remote can access other functions of a TV?

My TV is a Vizio E370VP

    Hello,  thank for the reply however the unlock feature freeing the remote from the cablebox allowing for channel entry

    was the only thing that worked.  I need the MENU, SETTINGS and the LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN arrows to work

    for the TV allowing me to change the settings in the TV as for example changing the HDMI input, switching to

    the coax antenna input, etc.

      Hi KenKK, to make those changes you'll need to use the remote that came with your television or use the buttons on your television. -Thanks, Carol
