to the SAT 1 connection and connect the second
cable to SAT 2. Use a coaxial cable fit for connecting
a satellite antenna dish. Make sure your satellite dish
is perfectly aligned before you start the installation.
During the satellite installation, select Two Tuners.
Unicable or MDU
If you use a Unicable system, connect the cable to
the SAT 1 connection. Use a coaxial cable fit for
connecting a satellite antenna dish and only use
Unicable complaint cable splitters. Make sure your

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.
When you connect a device, the TV recognizes its
type and gives each device a correct type name. You
can change the type name if you wish. If a correct
type name for a device is set, the TV automatically
switches to the ideal TV settings when you switch to
this device in the Sources menu.
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 port
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 ports
HDMI Quality
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) or
Ultra HD (UHD) TV signals.
For best signal quality transfer, use a High speed
HDMI cable and do not use an HDMI cable longer
than 5 m.
Copy protection
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).
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.
HDMI Ultra HD
You can watch videos filmed or made in 'native' Ultra
HD resolution - 3840x2160 pixels - on this TV.
Connect a Blu-ray Disc player, game console or
computer that plays Ultra HD videos to one of
HDMI connections. Use a High speed HDMI cable to
connect. The HDMI UHD connections have ARC
(Audio Return Channel).
HDMI CEC - EasyLink
EasyLink
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) or
Ultra HD (UHD) TV signals. For best signal quality
transfer, use a High speed HDMI cable and do not use
an HDMI cable longer than 5 m.
11
Page: 11
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.
With EasyLink you can operate a connected device
with the TV remote control. EasyLink uses HDMI CEC
(Consumer Electronics Control) to communicate with
the connected devices. Devices must support HDMI
CEC and must be connected with an HDMI
connection.
EasyLink setup
The TV comes with EasyLink switched on. Make sure
that all HDMI CEC settings are properly set up on the
connected EasyLink devices. EasyLink might not work
with devices from other brands.

in your region. These programmes are scrambled by
the TV operator and descrambled with a prepaid CI+
module.
Digital TV operators provide a CI+ module
(Conditional Access Module - CAM) and an
accompanying smart card, when you subscribe to
their premium programmes. These programmes have
a high level of copy protection.

One Smart Card
Digital TV operators provide a CI+ module
(Conditional Access Module - CAM) and an
accompanying smart card, when you subscribe to
their premium programmes.
Insert the smart card into the CAM module. See the
instruction you received from the operator.
To insert the CAM in the TV…
1 - Look on the CAM for the correct method of
insertion. Incorrect insertion can damage the CAM
and TV.

supported by the CAM smart card.
The CAM and smart card are exclusively for your TV. If
you remove the CAM, you will no longer be able to
watch the scrambled channels supported by the
CAM.
Two Smart Cards
Some Digital TV operators can provide a second CI+
module (CAM) and smart card. A second CAM and
smart card is needed when you want to watch one
channel while recording another channel from the
same TV operator.
If you can watch the same amount of channels with
each card, both cards have identical viewing rights. If
you can watch less channels with one of the cards,
the cards have non-identical viewing rights.
If your smart cards have identical viewing rights, it
does not matter which card you put in which slot. If
one of the cards has more viewing rights than the
other one, insert the card with the most viewing rights
in the slot COMMON INTERFACE 1. Insert the card
with less rights in COMMON INTERFACE 2.
Insert the smart cards into the CAM modules. See the
instruction you received from the operator.
To insert the CAM in the TV…

Link up with 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.
For the remote control to communicate with the TV,
both TV and remote control should be paired (linked)
with each other. Once paired, you cannot use the
remote control to control another TV.
26
Page: 26
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.

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.

Health Warning
• Watching 3D is not recommended for children under
the age of six.
• If you or your family have a history of epilepsy or
photosensitive seizures, consult a medical
professional before exposing yourself to flashing light
sources, rapid image sequences or 3D viewing.
• If you experience any discomfort, stop watching 3D
and do not immediately engage in any potentially
hazardous activity (for example driving a car) until
your symptoms have disappeared. If symptoms
persist, do not resume watching 3D without
consulting a medical professional first.
• To avoid discomfort such as dizziness, headache or
disorientation, we recommend not watching 3D for
extended periods of time.
• Do not use the 3D glasses for any purpose other
than watching 3D TV.
• If you normally wear corrective glasses or use
contact lenses, wear the 3D glasses together with
these glasses or lenses.
• Keep the glasses away from small children to avoid
the swallowing of small parts or batteries.
• Parents should monitor their children during 3D
viewing and ensure they do not experience any
discomfort as mentioned above. Watching 3D is not
recommended for children under six years of age as
their visual system is not fully developed yet.
• Avoid the use of the 3D glasses in case of eye
infection or other diseases transmitted by contact
(e.g. conjunctivitis, head lice, etc.). Only start using the
3D glasses again when the infection has disappeared
