Troubleshooting

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.

Digital connection

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.

NOTE: The HDMI connection only supports the LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) and AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio formats. The DTS (Digital Theater Systems) audio format is not supported via HDMI.

Analogue connection

  • 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 SCART connection on this TV accepts RGB and CVBS signals. The RGB signals offer a higher picture quality than CVBS signals. To record what you view on the TV connect to ‘SCART’. The recording (on an external recorder) will be in CVBS quality.

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

After connecting several devices, press the [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Sound] > [Headphones volume] and press the [Mute] button on the remote control to mute the TV loudspeaker.

Multimedia connection

Connect a USB memory device to the side USB connector.

  • Your TV supports playback of multimedia files in JPEG (Photos), MP3 (Music) and Video files.
  • 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.
