The TV uses very little power compared to a coffee maker or microwave oven, so if the inverter was powering other appliances it was probably powering the TV, too, and you just didn't notice the humming.

The inverter remote issue has come up here before Lorna, so don't feel bad. Just keep the switch on the inverter in the off position and use only the remote when the inverter is needed. Also be aware there is a bit of a delay when you turn it on before AC power is supplied to the outlets.

Of course, as others have mentioned, the inverter is irrelevant with shore power.
