Change input on RCA CRT television to connect DVD Player, Video Game System, or another type of device.

I am using my old RCA F26050wn CRT television for my home gym and I noticed it has an S-Video input; however on the factory remote and TV itself, I could not find an Input/Source button.

It turns out that you have to go to a specific channel for an input on this television and many other RCA CRT televisions made around this time.

The input channels are as follows:

RCA/Composite (yellow,white,red cable) input - Channel 91

S-Video input -  Channel 90

I have read on forums that channel 92 may also have an input.

I hope this helps you connect your DVD, VCR, Video Game System, PC, etc... to your RCA CRT television.

On a side note, if your television and device you wish to connect to it has S-Video, I would highly suggest using it over RCA as the picture is noticeably better.

You are a genius. We were in a pinch because the cable guy was setting up a new cable box on one of our older TV's. He was stumped and confused and I just decided to do a little research, which brought me here. Thank you!

Thank you very much ! My controller wouldn't respond with the input button. I think it was a replacement.

Thank you!! Our other TV just went kaphloey and we needed to use this old RCA but couldn't figure out how to get our DVD player to work. Ch 91 is the ticket!
