How to connect several external devices to Philips TV?

Your TV is equipped with several types of connections. The type of connection you should use to connect a certain device depends on which features of the particular device you want to use.

NOTE: for the connection of a PC refer to the FAQ on this subject.

  • The most complete connection available on your TV is the HDMI connection. This connection accepts high definition (HD) signals from external devices, such as a digital Set Top Box, a DVD-player or a game console such as the PS3.

  • If you want to connect more than one of this kind of external devices, the YPbPr (also called component or YUV) connection is a good choice.

  • The next best option are the S-Video and CVBS connections, which enable you to connect devices that are not equipped with a HDMI or YPbPr connection, such as a video camera or photo camera.

After connecting several devices you select any one of them with the [Source] button on the remote control of your TV. When you press this button repeatedly you select the external connections alternatively. If the source is HDMI, the TV will automatically switch to the source input.

Alternately, you may add the new device(s) to the home menu and select the device via the home menu. If a device is no longer connected to the TV, you can remove it from the home menu.

Follow this procedure to add your devices:

  1. Press the [Home] button on the remote control to access the home menu.

  2. Use the [Cursor buttons] to select [Add new device] and press the [OK] button to confirm.

  3. A message appears, prompting you to add a new device.

  4. Select [Start] and press the [OK] button.

  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to select the type of device and where it is connected.
    NOTE: If a particular connector has already been assigned to another device, it will not show up in the list of connectors.

  6. When the guide is completed, press the [OK] button.

  7. A new device icon is added to the home menu.

  8. Repeat step 2 and 6 if you wish to add more devices.

  9. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu.

NOTE: You will not be able to change the TV connector of a previously added device. If you wish to change the TV connector of a previously added device, you will have to delete this device and re-add it with the desired connector.

Follow this procedure to remove your devices:

  1. Press the [Home] button on the remote control to access the home menu.

  2. Use the [Cursor buttons] to select the device you wish to delete.

  3. Press the [Options] button.

  4. Select [Remove device] and press the [OK] button.

  5. A message appears, prompting you to remove the device.

  6. Select [Remove] and press the [OK] button.

  7. The selected device icon is deleted from the Home menu.

  8. Repeat step 2 and 6 if you wish to delete more devices.

  9. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu.

  10. Connect an audio device (home cinema set, amplifier) to the ‘AUDIO OUT’ connection at the back of the TV to hear the sound of the TV through your audio system.

  11. Connect a USB memory device to the side USB connector.

  • Only memory device in FAT/DOS format are supported.
  • Your TV supports playback of multimedia files in JPEG (Photos) and MP3 (Music) format exclusively.
  • Portable hard discs are only supported as a mass storage device without any multimedia capabilities. If your portable hard disc comes with multimedia capabilities, you have to connect your hard disc as a standard peripheral device.

If the above solution does not help, you may refer to the Philips Connectivity Guide on the Contact & support page, which will assist you in making all the necessary connections.
