If you have a remote control you should be able to access the "atuoprogram" feature within the setup menus. This will look for all active channels and place them into memory. What model is it?

How to get the right input for a conventional rca tv

Channel 3 is what you want anyways if you use the co-axial for the input. You can't have any other channels until you do a scan and there are no other channels anyways when you are using the tv as a monitor. So all your problems exist before that. Since the tuner is analogue and the satellite receiver is digital you may need a modern brown box.

Turning rca tv to video

First did you try all the codes. Some codes do not activate that function to work with the TV. Second what type of TV is it . If it is a combination tv - vcr - dvd these are the hardest to get to work with a universal remote . good luck

24'' f27242gy

It looks like you will need to autoprogram the rest of the channels but do this you will need to have the TV connected to cable to store more than channel 3.
Good Luck.

Cannot tune to channel 0 to use my dvd

If television has rca outs in the back(yellow, red, and white connectors) you must use the remote on the television to change the video input mode. If you do not have the RCA's you need to go to Radio Shack or Wal Mart and by an RF Modulator. and follow the instuctions with the modulator.
