Re: When I press tv the description says I select the...
NTSC is the earlier and soon-to-be extinct US standard, ATSC is the coming one for HD and is digital instead of analog in its signal coding.
Most later sets will determine what is available and switch accordingly.
Many stations are running tests at random now for a few minutes to let you know if your set is HDTV 'ready.'
Check with your local station schedules to see if they are listing times for this test signal.

Check which input is the current one. You can't access the tuner setup unless the input is set to TV. There should be a Source or Input button on your original remote. There may be a matching button on the TV. Please add a comment with the model of the TV, if you would like me to check where the Input or Source might be. (If you have a universal remote, it may or may not match this feature with the code that makes most of the TV features work.)
Note: some TV models were sold without tuners or only NTSC (analog tuners) depending on their size and release date. ATSC tuners were only mandated in 2005 for 36"+ TVs in the US. For these older TVs, you may need an OTA tuner (or ATSC to NTSC converter) box.
The DMR-ES35V only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Most TV channels now transmit in digital format (ATSC). Since the remaining analog stations are associated with low-power tuners, the tuner may not have picked up the signal. If you have an aerial antenna directly connected to the DMR-ES35V, it probably didn't find a signal. In that case, you need an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter or a stronger signal for a station giving an NTSC signal.
However, if you tried to record from a set-top box (cable/ OTA ATSC to NTSC converter), then check your connections. Several cable boxes will not transmit the analog signal if it is also sending a HDCP signal (high definition copy protection) to another monitor. (Thus if the TV is connected to a set-top box by an HDMI cable, no analog signal is available on composite video or RF outputs.)
Please add a comment to indicate what your TV source is and whether the source is connected to the DVD/VCR and TV separately or in a daisy-chain fashion.
I hope this helps you identify your recording problem.
I'd need the model number to tell if the RCA TV has a digital (ATSC) or analog (NTSC) tuner. The mandate for inclusion of the ATSC tuner depended on the size of the TV and the year of manufacture. Small (<25" diagonal) TVs didn't need to have an ATSC tuner when they were built until 2007. The older TVs could still be sold with a "cable-ready" or similar NTSC only label. (The 32"+ TVs had to have the ATSC tuners in 2005 and the mid-size TVs had to have the digital tuners in 2006.)
For example the 27F530T was manufactured in 2003 and only has a NTSC tuner. However, the 20F424T was manufactured in 2008 and does have an ATSC tuner.
The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner. While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider. The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.
This set RCA HD52W59 is not compactable with Indian TV tranmission system. India had s adopted PAL-B [Phase Alternating Line], system for both transmitting and receiving. This RCA set is intented to use with ATSC system, ie, it is meant for use in US only. If you get this to India, you have ot buy one RF converter, capable of converting PAL to ATSC & NTSC. You cannot get this converter from Indian market, as it has no use with Indian TVs. You have to buy it from any other source. You can see NTSC of ATSC recorded discs, and player which has these system compactabilities, but not able to receve either cable of on-air Inidan TV transmissions. OK.
Your tv tuner is set to function on both NTSC and ATSC. See below for the reference
NTSC (National Television System Committee) is the analog television broadcasting standard used widely in North America. It is referred to as a 525-line standard, but actually displays only 480 lines. NTSC is to be replaced with new DTV (Digital TV) standards in the coming years.
ATSC (Advanced Television Standards Committee) creates the technical standards for the US digital television system (DTV). These standards are expected to be used in most new televisions, as the US television system shifts from analog to digital.
Press the "TV/AV/PC" button to display the choice of input sources, move to the required choice (SCART in your case) using the channel up/down buttons, then press the volume + or - button to selectyour choice.
While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.
