Sony KV-20TR22 Need to hit Select on Remote


Hey this may seem like a trivial problem but I am sick of hitting select after the channel # on my remote. Is this an issue with the TV or is it a function of the remote??
Thanks A Lot

Had a similar Sony input scenario. had to enter 002 for ch 2, 059 for ch 59, etc. Always needed 3 keys. have you tried that?

I have two or three Sony TVs of various vintages. All of them do this, and I consider it a crappy human factors design element that Sony should have gotten rid of years ago. I doubt there is anything you can do about it, though.
By contrast, I have an old Magnavox el cheapo set. To change channels, I just hit the number buttons. After each button, the TV waits a moment to see if I am going to hit any more buttons, and if I don't, it goes to the selected channel. In other words, if I just hit "5", it goes to channel 5. If I hit "5" and then "7", it goes to channel 57. Etc.
Why expensive Sony's can't do this, I'll never know.

Yet another reason not to buy a Sony. Sonies are just overpriced pieces of shit probably made by Orion.

My Sony works just like your Magnavox. My previous SONY also worked like that. I wonder if the OP has tried selecting a channel and waiting a second or two to see what happens.

My Sony goes back to the original station after a while if I don't press Enter.
My Zenith goes by what numbers I have entered, but takes quite a while to be sure I'm not entering any other numbers.
And my my bedroom tv works perfectly, like Bill's Magnavox. I'll post the brand of that later.

The TV and remote are designed for each other but I'd say remote in this case.
I recently got a very nice flat panel TV but sent it back because of the horrible design of the channel selection dialogs. I just couldn't cope with about a dozen button pushes to add a channel to the lineup.
I'm still searching for a new set. I'd like to locate one with Guide Plus, but that feature seems to have dropped off the edge of the earth. It's surprising to me that these companies spend all this money on loading up their sets with pixels and can't spring for a few extra bucks for PIP and channel guides.

How much are you willing to pay every month for a channel guide? Why should the TV manufacturer pick up that expense?

I don't want to pay anything every month and don't see why I should have to pay a monthly charge for something that encourages me to watch more television.
The TV manufacturer did pick up the expense. The set I have now includes Guide Plus. I don't know how much the manufacturer had to pay the Guide Plus people.
I'm willing to spend $200 more up front for a set with that feature, which, I recall was the difference between the set I bought and similar sets without the feature.
Compared to the non-interactive TV Guide torture channel, Guide Plus is worth every cent I paid for it.

That's because people have things called cable boxes and satellite receivers, retard.

Because more pixels is what people want, retard. BTW, retard, who the fuck wants a little screen blocking a bigger screen anyways.

Seems I insulted you.
I have no idea how (unless you are the person that designed the TV Guide torture channel).
If you want to pay for a cable box you are welcome to go ahead and do it.
Where I live we have large trees. Even if I wanted satellite, it wouldn't be an option.
Who wants PIP? I guess people that can't stand to watch commercials.
Do you always start off calling people you don't know names?

At least we know why you were called Mal-issa and not Melissa.
