Well, it's my mum's tv actually. She got it 2nd hand with no instructions and we are all hopeless at this sort of thing. She has BBC2 and Channel 4.
What do we have to do to tune it to the other channels?
We have also been unable to find a TV channel that will make the seperate VCR to work.
I have tried to get the manufacturer to send us the manual but they only sent one page that told us how to plug it in and switch it on, even we can manage that without instructions...!

oh go on then. What type is it and what buttons are you working with?

oh thanks!
its just an old fashioned telly, i mean its not digital or anything.
The remote has buttons for telly and buttons for VCR.
Er...there are the usual buttons with numbers for channels and volumn and theres one that says TV/AV, one with a screen with a cross in the corner, one with a 'V' and a plus and minus button next to it...
have to go and sort screaming toddler, back in a minute

then there's :
- an upside down V and a right way up one
- 'menu'
- 4 each a different colour
- one with an 'N'

dont know if this is the info you need.
We have tried them all...

you need to look at buttons on the tv. The old ones normally have some buttons in/under a panel on the tv that tunes the channels.

the vcr will probably work with the tv/av button

there's also one which says:

nah nah don't blush, we'll sort it. Every time my parents get a new tv, they phone me up and say 'we've got a new tv! It's in a box. Now what do we do!' and they live thousands of kms away!
