Tips on connections
Connectivity guide
Always connect a device to the TV with the highest quality
connection available. Also, use good quality cables to ensure a
good transfer of picture and sound.
If you need help to connect several devices to the TV, you can
visit the Philips TV connectivity guide. The guide offers
information on how to connect and which cables to use.
Go to www.connectivityguide.philips.com
Antenna
If you have a Set-top box (a digital receiver) or Recorder,
connect the antenna cables to run the antenna signal through
the Set-top box and/or Recorder first before it enters the TV.
In this way, the antenna and the Set-top box can send possible
additional channels to the Recorder to record.
HDMI
HDMI CEC
An HDMI connection has the best picture and sound quality.
One HDMI cable combines video and audio signals. Use an
HDMI cable for High Definition (HD) TV signals. For best signal
quality transfer, use a High speed HDMI cable and do not use
an HDMI cable longer than 5 m.
EasyLink HDMI CEC
If your devices are connected with HDMI and have EasyLink,
you can operate them with the TV remote control. EasyLink
HDMI CEC must be switched on on the TV and the
connected device.
In Help, press * List and look up EasyLink HDMI CEC for
more information on using EasyLink.
DVI to HDMI
Use a DVI to HDMI adapter if your device only has a DVI
connection. Use one of the HDMI connections and add an
Audio L/R cable (mini-jack 3.5 mm) to Audio In VGA/DVI for
sound, on the back of the TV.
Copy protection
DVI and HDMI cables support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection). HDCP is a copy protection signal that
prevents copying content from a DVD disc or Blu-ray Disc.
Also referred to as DRM (Digital Rights Management).
Setting up / Connect devices 9
Page: 9
HDMI ARC
All of the HDMI connections on the TV have HDMI ARC
(Audio Return Channel).
If the device, typically a Home Theatre System (HTS), also has
the HDMI ARC connection, connect it to any of the HDMI
connections on this TV. With the HDMI ARC connection, you
do not need to connect the extra audio cable that sends the
sound of the TV picture to the HTS. The HDMI ARC
connection combines both signals.
You can use any HDMI connection on this TV to connect the
HTS but ARC is only available for 1 device/connection at a
time.
In case you prefer to switch off ARC on the HDMI
connections, press h and select S Setup and press OK.
Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > HDMI ARC.
Y Pb Pr
Component Video YPbPr is a high quality connection. The
YPbPr connection can be used for High Definition (HD) TV
signals. Next to the Y, Pb and Pr signals add the Audio Left
and Right signals for sound.
Use the supplied YPbPr adapter cable to connect your device.
Match the YPbPr (green, blue, red) connector colours with the
cable plugs when you connect.
Use an Audio L/R cinch to mini-jack (3.5mm) adapter cable
(not supplied) if your device also has sound.
SCART
SCART is a good quality connection. The SCART connection
can be used for CVBS and RGB video signals but cannot be
used for High Definition (HD) TV signals. The SCART
connection combines video and audio signals.
Use the supplied SCART adapter cable to connect your
device.
Audio Out - Optical
Audio Out - Optical is a high quality sound connection. This
optical connection can carry 5.1 audio channels. If your audio
device, typically a Home Theatre System (HTS), has no HDMI
ARC connection, you can connect this sound cable to an
Audio In - Optical connection on the HTS. This Audio cable
will send the sound of the TV to the HTS.
You can set the type of the audio out signal to fit the audio
capabilities of your Home Theatre System.
In Help, press * List and look up Audio Out settings for
more information.
If the sound does not match the video on screen, you can
adjust the audio to video synchronization.
In Help, press * List and look up Audio to video sync for
more information.
EasyLink HDMI CEC

connect the device to the TV. Alternatively, you can use a
SCART cable if the device has no HDMI connection.

HTS with a built-in disc player.
12 Setting up / Connect devices
Page: 12
Alternatively, you can use a SCART cable if the device has no
HDMI connection.
HDMI ARC
If your Home Theatre System has an HDMI ARC connection,
you can use any HDMI connection on the TV to connect. All
HDMI connections on the TV can offer the Audio Return
Channel (ARC) signal. But once you connected the Home
Theatre System, the TV can only send the ARC signal to this
HDMI connection.
With HDMI ARC, you do not need to connect the extra audio
cable. The HDMI ARC connection combines both signals.
If the Home Theatre System has no HDMI ARC connection,
add an optical audio cable to send the sound of the TV picture
to the Home Theatre System.
Audio to video synchronisation (sync)
If the sound does not match the video on screen, you can set
a delay on most DVD Home Theatre Systems to match the
sound and video. A mismatch can be visible in scenes with
people talking - when they finish sentences before their lips
stop moving or just the opposite.
In Help, press * List and look up Audio to video sync for
more information.
Audio Out settings
Audio Out delay
With a Home Theatre System (HTS) connected to the TV,
the picture on TV and the sound from the HTS should be
synchronised. A mismatch can be visible in scenes with people
talking - when they finish sentences before their lips stop
moving or just the opposite.
Automatic audio to video sync
With recent Philips Home Theatre Systems, the audio to
video sync is automatically synchronised and always correct.
Audio sync delay
For some Home Theatre Systems you might need to adjust
the audio sync delay to synchronise the audio to video. On the
HTS, increase the delay value until there is a match between
picture and sound. A delay value of 180ms may be required.
Read the user manual of the HTS. With a delay value set up
on the HTS, you need to switch off Audio Out delay on the
TV.
To switch off the Audio Out delay . . .
1 - Press h and select S Setup and press OK.
2 - Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > Audio Out
delay.
3 - Select Off and press OK.
4 - Press b, repeatedly if necessary, to close the menu.
Audio Out offset
If you cannot set a delay on the Home Theatre System, you
can set the TV to sync the sound. You can set an offset that
compensates the time necessary for the Home Theatre
System to process the sound of the TV picture. You can set
the value in steps of 5ms. Maximum setting is -60ms. The
Audio Out delay setting should be switched on.
To synchronise the sound on the TV . . .
1 - Press h and select S Setup and press OK.
2 - Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > Audio Out
offset.
3 - Use the slider bar to set the sound offset and press OK.
4 - Press b, repeatedly if necessary, to close the menu.
Audio Out format
If you have a Home Theatre System (HTS) with multichannel
sound processing capabilities like Dolby Digital, DTS® or
similar, set the Audio out format to Multichannel. With
Multichannel, the TV can send the compressed multichannel
sound signal from a TV channel or connected player to the
Home Theatre System. If you have a Home Theatre System
without multichannel sound processing, select Stereo.
To set the Audio Out format . . .
1 - Press h and select S Setup and press OK.
2 - Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > Audio Out
format.
3 - Select Multichannel or Stereo.
4 - Press b, repeatedly if necessary, to close the menu.
Audio Out leveling
Use the Audio Out leveling setting to level the volume
(loudness) of the TV and the Home Theatre System when
you switch over from one to another. Volume differences can
be caused by differences in sound processing.
To level the difference in volume . . .
1 - Press h and select S Setup and press OK.
2 - Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > Audio Out
leveling.
Setting up / Connect devices 13
Page: 13
3 - If the volume difference is large, select More. If the volume
difference is small, select Less.
4 - Press b, repeatedly if necessary, to close the menu.
Audio Out leveling affects both the Audio Out - Optical and
HDMI-ARC sound signals.
Troubleshooting
Sound with loud noise
If you watch a video from a plugged in USB flash drive or
connected computer, the sound from your Home Theatre
System might be distorted. This noise is there when the audio
or video file has DTS sound but the Home Theatre System
has no DTS sound processing. You can fix this by setting the
Audio Out format of the TV to Stereo. Go to Home >
Setup > TV settings > Sound > Advanced > Audio Out
format
No sound
If you cannot hear the sound from the TV on your Home
Theatre System, check the following . . .
• Check if you connected the HDMI cable to a HDMI ARC
connection on the Home Theatre System. All HDMI
connections on the TV are HDMI ARC connections.
• Check if the HDMI ARC setting on the TV is switched On.
Go to Home > Setup > TV settings > Sound > Advanced >

IR Sensor
The remote control of the TV uses RF (radio frequency) to
send its commands to the TV. With RF, you do not need to
point the remote control at the TV.
However, the TV can also receive commands from a remote
control that uses IR (infrared) to send commands. If you use
such a remote control, always make sure you point the remote
control at the infrared sensor on the front of the TV.
Pairing
This remote control uses radio frequency (RF) to send its
commands to the TV. Contrary to remote controls using
infrared signals, with this remote control you can send
commands without pointing at the TV.
With no need to point the remote control, using the keyboard
on the back or sending commands from another room -
changing the volume or switching channels - is easy.
Additionally, the TV can notify you when the battery power of
the remote control is low.
Pairing the remote control
For the remote control to communicate with the TV, both TV
and remote control should be paired with each other. Once
paired, you cannot use the remote control to control another
TV.
When you started the initial TV installation, the TV invited you
to press the OK key, and by doing so, the pairing was done.
When you switch off the TV, the pairing is stored. You can pair
up to 5 remote controls with this TV.

Unicable setup
The Unicable system
You can use a Unicable system to connect the antenna dish to
the TV.
A Unicable system uses one cable to connect the satellite dish
to all satellite receivers in its system. Unicable is typically used
in apartment buildings. If you use a Unicable system, the TV
will ask you to assign a user band number and corresponding
frequency during the installation. You can install 1 or 2
satellites with Unicable on this TV.
If you notice some missing channels after a Unicable
installation, another installation might have been done at the
same moment on the Unicable system. Do the installation
again to install the missing channels.
User band number
In a Unicable system, each connected satellite receiver must
be numbered (e.g. 0, 1, 2 or 3 etc.). You can find the available
user bands and their number on the Unicable switchbox. User
band is sometimes shortened as UB. There are Unicable
switchboxes that offer 4 or 8 user bands. If you select Unicable
in the settings, the TV will ask you to assign the unique user
band number for its built-in satellite receiver. A satellite
receiver cannot have the same user band number as another
satellite receiver in the Unicable system.
User band frequency
Next to the unique user band number, the built-in satellite
receiver needs the frequency of the selected user band
number. These frequencies are mostly shown next to the user
band number on a Unicable switchbox.
Add a satellite
You can add an additional satellite to your current satellite
installation. The installed satellites and their channels stay
untouched. However, some satellite operators do not allow
adding a satellite.
The additional satellite should be seen as an extra, it is not
your main satellite subscription or not the main satellite of
which you use its channel package. Typically, you would add a
4th satellite when you have 3 satellites already installed. If you
have 4 satellites installed, you might consider removing one
first to be able to add a new satellite.
Settings
If you currently have only 1 or 2 satellites installed, the current
installation settings might not allow adding an extra satellite. If
you need to change the installation settings, you must redo the
complete satellite installation. You cannot use Add satellite if a

Troubleshooting
The TV cannot find the satellites I want or the TV installs the
same satellite twice
• Make sure that the correct number of satellites is set in
Settings at the start of the installation. You can set the TV to
search for One, Two or 3/4 satellites.
A dual head LNB cannot find a second satellite
• If the TV finds one satellite but cannot find a second one,
turn the dish a few degrees. Align the dish to get the strongest
signal on the first satellite. Check the signal strength indicator
of the first satellite on screen. With the first satellite set at the
strongest signal, select Search again to find the second satellite.
• Make sure the settings are set to Two satellites.
Changing the installation settings did not solve my problem
• All settings, satellites and channels are only stored at the end
of the installation when you finish.
All satellite channels are gone.
