    I have an old GE (Model GE341) small color TV with the rotary Channel
    selector. I'm trying to connect a VCR to it. Could somebody tell me if there
    is a particular channel set aside for that - or in any event how do I go
    about it. Regards

    ** How about you first just try linking the RF out on the VCR to the antenna
    socket on the TV and switching through all the stations ?

    See what ya get with a tape in the machine.

    Does your TV support UHF? If it's a modern VCR then you may find that
    it transmits on a UHF channel. In that case you'll need a UHF-VHF down
    convertor, or a separate RF modulator that supports VHF, or a
    modification to your TV to accept direct video input.
