Westinghouse TX-42F430S

PC with a tuner

I recently accidentally reset the TV and I had to redo scan to pick up all the channels. One of them, channel 2.1, can't be picked up by the TV. On PC, it's quite easy when the antenna is pointed at certain angle.

The TV model does not seem to have a way to forcefully add a channel.

Is there any trick to get it pick up and then I can adjust the antenna?

Thanks

Replace the TV with a better one.

Some TVs allow you to enter the real RF channel. For example, if 2.1 uses RF30, then you would enter 30.1. This trick won't work if 30.1 is a virtual channel on your TV.
