Question about Televison & Video
This problem is very commonly caused by the TV being accidently reset to recognize only VHF channels up to the first 15 and then look for UHF channels. This may be labeled in the menu as "Air" or "Antenae".
You would need to go to menu for channel setup and change this setting to "cable".
If problem still persists, let me know . Also mention the Make and Model of the TV.

The only program I know of to map broadcast locations is antenna web, found here. Unfortunately, the only stations it is picking up for your zip code are in Johnstown. Once you exceed the distance of about 60 miles, they won't rate your reception as acceptable, so even if you can get reception, it's not guaranteed.
I think your best bet for Pgh. is to assume the broadcast beacons are on top of Mt. Washington, and use the compass direction to get a general focus.
If you have help, and that's really the only way to dial it in, you can orient the antenna a few degrees at a time and have someone check the signal strength for various stations, then reorient a few degrees. Eventually you'll find the best orientation for picking up the Pgh. stations you can receive. Just make a note of it. Local geographical features can affect the reception, as you probably already know.
You might ask the guy at this site to make an antenna recommendation.
Make sure the antenna is as high as you can mount it, and the cable is running directly to the box or set, and grounded if possible.
You may find this article of some help, as well.
