Question about Alba Televison & Video
This is a common trait with cheap brands. Alba are a cheap brand for a reason. Supermarket own brands also suffer flaws like this.
Cheaper usually means you lose a lot of functions that make life easier. Take Polaroid a cheap brand for Asda supermarkets. Use one of there TVs and you’ll see the same thing. You can press guide. You don’t get a tv picture in the guide like most more expensive brands. Select a channel. Press ok. Normally your guide would close once you press ok. But on these TVs you have to press ok. Then yet again press guide to close the TV guide to watch the channel.
When you buy cheap the normal practice is you give up silly things and quality that make normal life easier on proper brands like Sony or Samsung.
Some cheaper TVs you’ll also find don’t have a network or Ethernet connection or WiFi. To enable use of software updates. Cheaper TVs normally have to rely on “over the air” updates meaning the update has to be broadcast over UHF the same way your tv channels are. This is very rarely done as the updates can be to large in size.
It’s simply just the design of the tv you have. Cheaper doesn’t always mean better.

Sky+ Remote Control Unit Programming Procedure Follow the steps below
1* Select any channel on the TV.
2* Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.
3* Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.
4* Input the 3 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.
5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.
If this works try the other TV functions.
If these work then the correct code has been selected.
It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.
If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 to 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky Plus remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press "TV" followed by the "Stand-by" button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the "Sky" button followed by the "TV guide" button.
