Hi and welcome to JustAnswer; an independent site with members providing product information, repair tips and technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your question.

First I had to close your other questions as these are either duplicates of the original question and/or the second opinion question.

Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the TV.

Additionally, please describe how the input device/s is/are connected to the TV using what kind of cable(s).

RCA combo 24f501tv the input is on the back of the tv, where you hook up the cable or antenna. I changed the input to line1 and line 2, but on the minu, it will not let me lock in any channels.

that is what I used o change to Line 1 and line 2. I was told this work and fix all my problems, it did not,thats why I need more help.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 month ago

The INPUT SELECT button of the original remote control does not change the source of the TV itself. This button changes 'what is to be recorded' on the VCR part of this combo unit.

The TV/VCR button on the otherhand selects between TV/VCR and other external source. It should be set to TV mode.

In TV mode, this model would only work with the old NTSC system. It is not capable of the current (new) ATSC Digital TV Broadcasts.

A workaround is to install/connect an STB; i.e. a set-top-box that converts ATSC signals to NTSC and/or analog Video/Audio signals. This device connects to the antenna, receives the OTA (over-the-air) Digital Broadcasts, processes it and outputs it as simulated Ch3 ATSC and/or A/V through RCA jacks.

Was not even aware the vcr would record, doesn't say that anywhere. Will the DVD record? is what in on the second page what I need to purchase to make this tv antenna ready?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I have a DIGITAL HDTV ANTENNA, Where can I get just the box and the other things, without the antenna? Your original tech told me all I needed was to change to line 1 or 2.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 month ago

Please click/tap HERE. This shows the specifications of an RCA 24F501. Note that:

  • RECEPTION / Tuning Capability / NTSC - not ATSC hence not capable of directly receiving Digital TV Broadcasts/ATSC;
  • DVD Capabilities / Will the DVD record? - not capable of recording to DVDs;
  • VCR CAPABILITIES / One-Touch Recording (OTR) / Yes - can record.

The remote control also has buttons for REC/OTR and REC TIMER. REC would be the recording function.

"...what I need to purchase to make this tv antenna ready?..." - as posted earlier, an STB. Click/tap HERE and HERE as well.
