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
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.
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, do not use an HDMI cable longer than 5 m.
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.
