Westinghouse ew37s5kw 39" LED TV

So never mind that you have to get the QAM and ATSC tuner codes, I already have them. My issue is I have no idea where to enter the ATSC code to get the over-the-air digital channels. Anyone know how to do this?

And did you try one outside the home?

Are you sure about this?

I have never heard of a code associate with a atsc turner. Have you gone through and do the program channel on tv setup?

Channel Auto-Scan

Apparently this is only a Westinghouse thing as noted in some other forums.

It should ask for the code when you attempt to do a scan for OTA channels. The owner's manual doesn't seem to specify where in the menu system you can find the auto scan, but it should be accessible through the main menu.

Auto-scan doesn't ask for code

I've done the auto scan several times, but it never finds any channels and it never asks for the ATSC code. I have read on other forums about the stupidity of Westinghouse requiring the activation code, I just want to be able to enter it somewhere. Also, restoring the TV to factory default doesn't help.
