    Ive recently moved into a place where there was a disused TV left in the room by the previous flatmate, with no remote. I've just managed to pick up a second hand PS2 which has the scart lead to connect to the TV, however I can't manually find the AV channel, I'm presuming you need the remote.

    I've looked online, the model of the TV is Beko NR32120R, and you can get replacement remotes for about £12, however, before I order one, I just wanted to check - is there a danger that this TV might not actually have an AV channel available, even with the remote? Is there any way I can find out?

    Would I need to do anything else to get it set up (the PS2 turns on alright, as does the TV which is just snowstorm on all the channels, but I don't need it for TV anyway its just going to be a PS2 TV)
    If there is a Scart socket, then there will be an AV channel. Check if there are any buttons on the TV, the one with a square and an arrow pointing in or out is the one.

    Have you tried going to channel 0? Sometimes that's AV. Or on my TV, AV is below channel 0.

    If there's a huge rectangular socket (SCART plug) at the back, you'll be able to use your PS2/DVD Player/Freeview with it. Sometimes, instead of an AV channel the TV will just switch to AV mode the moment you turn the console on.

    Also, if you don't have a Scart plug, don't worry, you can just buy a cheap RF lead that connects into the Aerial plug.

    You could shop around for one of those universal remotes, which may be a bit cheaper than buying a specific one.

    ^^ On some recent TVs (and many older ones), the AV channel is actually a switch on either the front or back of the TV, so it may be a switch between "tuner/input".
