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.
Most of the RCA GuidePlus Gold gemstar TVs worked with analog TV signals (NTSC) only. The Guide+ information was only broadcast in NTSC signals and is no longer being provided. If you can check the date of manufacture of the TV, you can use the size to check if it had an ATSC tuner added if it was made for the US market. 37"+ TVs had to have a digital tuner in second half of 2005. 25" TVs needed to have the ATSC tuner after March, 2006. The next year all TVs had to have a digital tuner.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the TV, if you would like me to confirm the tuner information on your set.
(The RCA F31317 TV with Guide+ was manufactured in 2000 and thus only has a NTSC tuner.)
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.
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.

Hey jp62388, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model TV should have a built-in NTSC/ATSC and QAM tuner. These should allow you to receive locally broadcast digital TV signals without the use of a set-top box or digital converter box. If you're concerned about your TV's specifications, the most important thing you'll need to look for is a built-in or integrated ATSC tuner. NTSC is the old analog standard that is to be phased out in early 2009, while ATSC is the new digital standard that is to be used within the United States and Canada as NTSC’s replacement. Should you have any other questions or concerns, I'd strongly suggest checking out the FAQ section of the federal government’s official DTV transition website: http://www.dtv.gov/index.html Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
My information indicates that the DTV-5801 has a NTSC (analog TV) tuner built in bot not and ATSC (digital tuner). It does have HDTV inputs to which an external tuner can be connected. For Off-Air Digital TV, add an HDTV (ATSC High Definition tunner) and you are set to go. Do not buy the DTV converters, they have down converters built in and only deliver SD to the outputs.
