I think you have to scan for channels from Settings->TV inputs and then it will ask if you need channels 3 and 4.  It's been a while since I've done it.

That assumes the TV supports analog signals. I think the FCC allowed manufacturers to drop support a few years ago.

I've tried to add channels 3 and 4 and it doesn't work my fix was to toss this cheap TV with Cheap sound in the trash. Buy a quality TV. You know, the one with a remote that has numbers so you don't have to tab the button a million times trying to find channel 3 and 4 that doesn't not exist.

I had the same issue trying to hookup my SEGA Genesis game console. I had to connect it to the antenna jack, turn it on, THEN scan for channels. It recognized it and added channel 4 as a “vcr” station.
