I just switch my tv out of my room with this Emerson tv/vcr combo. I was getting all my cable channels with the old TV but now I can only get the basic local channels and all of my other stations are snowy and noisy???

Re: I have the 13 inch and...
If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.

If you let it autoprogram and all you get is channel 103. Move the TV back to the old connection and see if it autoprograms all the channels there. If that works ok then you have a problem with the cabe line that only has channel 103.
I would recommend getting a universal remote control. They cost no more than ten bucks and you can program them to control the tv and the vcr. Just make sure that the brand of tv is listed on the back of the remote package.
Viewing the user manual above, the only inputs are on the front of the unit. (1) video - yellow
and (1) Audio - White
You can watch the DVD, but it will only have MONO sound.
Connect component RCA cable RED YELLOW WHITE (minus red in your case) to the front of the unit.
To view from that source, Change the channel to 2 then hit the down arrow one more time to get in AUX mode.
The TV should be on channel 2, 3, or 4 to work correctly. There might be a small switch on the back of the VCR that lets you select the channel that it wil play back on.
Also, look on the remote control for the VCR and see if there is a button labeled TV/Video, and press that while something is playing. This switches back and forth between the TV signal and the VCR signal and it could solve your problem.
Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)
