I have an older tv and I just plugged it in and put the cable into the tv. Some of the channels work (the "bunny ear" channels) but nothing else works. I tried programming the TV but it won't pick up my other channels, even when I type in another number on the remote. The cable outlet works as I have my other tv plugged in now to make sure the outlet works. Any suggestions?

Rabbit ears will only get channels that are very close or strong--a lot of channels are no longer broadcast in analog over the air---ask your neighbors what they use and consider going to cable or sat.
If none of the r.f. inputs are working and you do not get local channels off of a pair of rabbit ears. You may have a bad tuner. Which you can get replaced for 125.00-150.00 or you could run the cable into a vcr input and use audio/video cables to connect to a video input on the tv and switch tv to that input and run the channels using your vcr. In other words, use your tv as a monitor and use the vcr tuner to pickup basic cable. Hope that takes care of it, Russmann.
some older tv's only go up to so many channels.you may not even need a remote to set up cable tv. if you are going to use a cable box on this tv, put the tv on channel 3.if not, look in front of the tv for a little door. behind it maybe knobs or buttons that can program the channels 1 at a time [+= add - = erase. there also maybe a switch for different cable types [hrc,std, etc]
hope this helps
