RF codes are generally associated with older VCR's that used to output signals via the TV aerial system. It's when you used to tune the TV to the VCR channel. I think if you press a couple of numbers such as 4 and 9 on the remote it will then say RF-49. In which case if you have an old analogue tuner on your TV you could then tune it to channel 49 and see the VCR picture. Generally it's no longer used for the reason of digital TV, but also due to the fact you could not get a stereo sound with it and the picture wasn't as good as via a scart socket.

Plus code?

That would be the Video Plus system. By pressing the plus code button on the remote a screen will pop up with spaces to add numbers. These numbers used to be found in TV guides. Each programme you want to record will have it's own numbers. So if the show you want has a number say of 679 you enter that number using the channel keys on the remote. When you have the number on you press OK or the enter key depending on the remote and model number. This will then set the timer record.
Unfortunately many TV guides (in the UK) no longer carry the numbers. And if the VCR is an analogue one it won't record anything if you are in the UK. However if you live in a country which still has the service then it will work.
If you are using the video with a converter box, unless you can find a TV guide with the numbers in then you will have to use the manual record setting.

Why can't I tune in new channels from set top box through vcr?

Sounds like you are trying to receive the new Over The Air OTA, digital ATSC signals on a VCR that can only receive analog NTSC, which are not sent by any but low-power channels. Did you miss the change over last April, postponed from Feb, and featured on every TV channel when you could have obtained 1 or 2 $40 coupons toward ATSC-to-NTSC converter boxes. Try for more info, IIRC.
If you are speaking of cable TV then see your company. These may be digital Quadrature Amplitude Modulation QAM signals that only certain TVs can decode provided they are not encrypted. Locals are never encrypted. This is separate from the ATSC conversion.

Can;t record on VCR since Comcast went Digital

I have Dish Network and a DVR and I do not know what I would do without it. I can record 2 shows at once and watch to 2 recorded programs while recording two shows. But getting to your problem... It sounds like the vcr cannot process the digital signal. You could try hooking up the vcr to the rca inputs from the cable box but you will only be able to record whatever channel the cable box is on. Any way you hook them up the programming of the vcr to change channels at different times for different programs probably won't work now. It sounds like Direct TV with two DVRs will solve your recording needs.

VCR doesn't record since Comcast installed digital box

Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.

Panasonic PV-V4021 VCR.

An analog VCR can only be used the same way as an analog TV. You should be able to set the VCR to the converter boxes output channel ( 3 for example) and then set the VCR to record that channel at the correct times. Then just tune the converter box to the correct channel. Please note that if you try this while you are at home (recording one thing while watching another) you will wind up recording whatever is on the channel you change to.

VCR tuner cannot tune in my cable channels

It is working as designed. The purpose of your cable box is to take in a wire containing all of the possible channels you might watch, and then extract *one* channel, and force it to appear as channel 3. If you connect the cable directly to the VCR, then the VCR's "tuner" (ie, channel selector) has an opportunity to extract any channel it wants. But... as you point out, your VCR won't be able to "see" any of the digital channels. So... if your goal is to be able to watch any of the digital channels, the signal must pass through your cable box, which will put the selected channel on channel 3. There is no value in going from the VCR to the cable box, since the VCR's tuner will have already filtered out all but one channel. It would be helpful to make a list of what your useage goals really are, since there are so many different ways to hook these things up. Are you interested in: - watching digital channels? - recording digital channels? - watching one channel while recording another? - using higher quality video signals (composite, s-video, component, etc) rather than RF (ie, channel 3) And so on. Keep in mind that you have *three* tuners: Your cable box, your VCR, and your TV. It sounds like only your cable box can tune in the digital channels. If your cable box puts out any non-RF signal, then the best choice would be to go: Coaxial Wire -> Cable Box -> Video Connection -> VCR -> Video Connection -> TV, with the VCR and the TV both set to "video". Then you would only use the cable box as a tuner, the VCR would only see the tuned channel (via video in), and the TV would see the same channel (or whatever tape you are playing) on its video input.
