Question about Televison & Video
Posssibly antenna orientation could be a factor. Also, STB suppliers recommend repeating channel search periodically so that missing channels magically appear.

Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

First ensure that you are performing the auto channelling procedure correctly.
If you are sure you have done everything in the proper way, and channel tuning still does not work, than that means that the tuning board inside your TV is faulty, and is not storing channels in memory, therefore should be replaced.

OK you are not going to like this but here we go any way. First of all I need to explain how your channels are created.
When the RF signals come into the headend of the Down converters they are separated into pre channelized designations DC (Down Converter) 4 Stream 1 (DC 4-1, DC 4-2...) now once this is done the down converter signal is fed into a channel processor which takes the incoming signal from the Down Converter remodulates it and puts it on an assigned channel 4-1 could become channel 4, 4-2 could become channel 5 and so on. Once this is done you end up with your regular channel line up for analog channels, now for digital its a little different you have IRDs (Integrated Receiver Decoders) which take the off air or satellite Digital RF signals and convert them into MPEG Streams which is the fed into what is called a SEM (Motorola Architecture) Stream Encryption Module which assigns numeric designations to the MPEG streams and then converts the MPEG streams back into RF. Now at this point we have analog and digital signals what then has to happen is the the analog signals must be turned into MPEG streams to go through the system so what happens is from the channel processor the analog signal is put into a SE (Stream encryptor) Like the SE1010. This takes the analog stream and turns it into am MPEG stream and feeds it into the SEM also and the SEM assigns a numeric designation just like the digital signal and this can sometime follow the same numeric designations as was obtained from the Down Converter, So what you end up with is analog and digital signals having the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2, ..... format. This is where other equipment comes into play These designations are then kept in a database and are matched to their proper channels by use of the DAC and RADD along with an IPG server. These allow the SEM to assign true channel designations to the converted channels, now the SEM DAC, and RADD talks to your STB, this is way the channels are correct because the SEM and the DAC/RADD are matching what is on the IPG (Interactive Program Guide). When you remove your cable box the tuner in your TV does not know how to deal with the DAC, RADD and IPG signals so it only displays the RF information which is the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2 data.
I hope this helps,

the tv has a configaration that conveys the sets focus on both audio and video performance. full hd resolution of 1920-1080 pixels.
hdmi inputs allow connection of the generation of 1080p sources for the systems which offer 1080p outputs
