Please excuse me if I've already answered your question -- it sounds familiar. The RCA 16S400 is a 70's-vintage crystal based scanner that covers the VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF bands using frequency-specific crystals. It is not programmable, but rather requires one crystal for each frequency to be scanned/tuned. It uses Regency-type crystals which can usually be found on eBay at reasonable prices.
If you meant to conncct the RF out of the VCR to the RF in of the TV then mostly the RF outputs come in the bands VHF1 CH3 or CH 4 . Also it comes mainly set from factory in the UHF CH36.
Iff there is interference in your area due to local channel the channel can be shifter by trimming the modulator.
So tune the VCR accordingly or Use the AV inputs, video out to video in and audio outs to audio in of TV.
Bands are nothing more than frequency ranges. For example, 108 to 137 MHZ is commonly referred to as the "Aircraft Band," and you just program individual frequencies into the scanner. Some scanners have a band monitor capability, where you push a single button to search the air band, police band, etc. This is normally done by powering the scanner ON, and pressing the desired band key (on some you may need to press MANUAL or MAN before the band key). You didn't specify the model of your scanner, and I can't give you any more detail without it (You listed your question under the BC60XLT which is a a 10-channel scanner). If this info helps, great. If not, please get back to me with the model number and I'll go into more detail for you.

Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC 142XL scanner.
Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.
Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Hi, If I'm reading correctly, that scanner is listed as a 30 channel scanner only. You can pick freq's from 10 different bands. Here's just some of the features listed, hope this answered your question. Mechanic FEATURES:
Clock/Alarm - Large backlit LCD displays
time and features "any button" snooze.
30 Channels - You can program each of
these memory channels to store one frequency.
10 Bands - Including all public service
bands, 4 "HAM" bands, federal and military land mobile
Weather Scan - Automatically scans all
national weather service frequencies.
First, check in the VCR setup and see if it set for cable or off-air/broadcast/antenna (not always named the same). If it is set for off-air... then it won't tune cable channels beyond 13. It must be set for cable mode in order to tune those upper channels (mid-band, superband etc.).
I assume you have the VCR hooked up correctly- cable into VCR antenna/RF input, VCR RF/to TV output to the RF/Ant input of the TV.
