1. Device: Sony XR77A80L
2. Type of device: TV
3. Year: 2023
4. JP1/UEI Remote model: Xfinity
5. Do you have a JP1 cable? Y
6. Still have original remote? Y
7. Checked the file section? Y

I know Sony remotes have a 'TV' button that you can set any input to use from the settings menu. I have a cable box on HDMI1 and that's how I have it set.

I ALSO have the 'Channels' input set up with a coaxial antenna attached for over the air as well as some apps with channels like Pluto.

For the life of me, I cannot find a code for the 'Channels' input on a Sony TV. I have tried just about every input I can find on lists here.

I know I could change the 'TV' button to Channels, but I really don't want to.

since you have the original remote why don't you try to capture the original signal using a decoder with irscrutinizer?

Because I'm not sure I have hardware that can do that.

Mostly I've never seen a Sony remote with a button for it either.

I also discovered last night that the A80L is the first Sony in 33+ years that I've found the 'Sleep' button doesn't actually work. I'm wondering if there is a new alternate. (Again, there is no actual button on the included remote for this.)

So you're saying that your OEM remote doesn't have the button that you're looking for, right? So a learning remote or using a decoder with irscrutinizer is irrelevant.

I assume you have found a working upgrade to work your TV otherwise, right? If so, could you please post a link to it.

Normally I would just say to test all the gap OBCs, but I want to see what mixture of Sony device codes this uses first.

And another question...
I've found that the volume on the current TV requires you hitting the button again and again. Holding up or down has no effect after 1 tick.
The included RF remote does the same thing.

I'd search to see if this has been asked, but I'm not even sure what it's called.
I guess I want the signal to flicker like someone is hitting the button multiple times(?)

You sure you have Sony instead of a Samsung tv? It's usually Samsung tv's with no-repeating volume commands.
