I upgraded from Contour1 to Contour2 cable box. With old remotes I could hit input button to select my TV input, then hit Select button. This worked with both my LG and my Sharp TVs.
The new remotes don't work with either TV. I can select the input I want but both TV require that I hit a select button. When I hit the OK button it does not affect either TV and only affects the new cable box. How can I use the new remote to select my TV inputs?
Thanks Brian. I was afraid of that.
Try another code to control your TV set. Press the 'A' button...navigate to Remote Setup...follow the instructions. If you opt for "It doesn't work," you'll eventually get to a page listing all functional codes for your brand of TV. Write 'em down. Repeat steps using another code...test the Input Select...and update us (subscribers).
I don't think it has to do with the TV code, but how the select button is bound to the cable function in the remote. See thread below for confirmation that even remapping the key doesn't work with the newer Contour 2 remotes.
Some manufacturer codes have additional instructions for the TV. Some codes are limited to 3-4 specific instructions (power, volume, channel, Input) and some perhaps additional generic instructions (navigational, select, Info, etc). It's worth a shot.
