    What is RRT5 (Rating Region Table 5) and is my Philips TV capable of receiving new RRT5?

    Published on 2016-12-29

    This TV is capable of receiving Program Content Advisory information, or “V-chip” information, and will block programs with ratings that exceed specific viewing preferences selected within the TV menu. With the transition of TV broadcasts to digital, future changes and enhancements in how TV shows are rated for content are possible. For the TV to adapt to these possible rating system changes, it must be capable of receiving a new rating table called a Rating Region Table 5 (RRT5).

    To check and see if your TV is enabled for RRT5, follow this process:

    • Check the TV menu for the “Downloaded rating table” option in the “Features preferences” item in the “Setup” menu. Refer to the pictures below.

    • TVs with “Downloaded rating table” in the menu already have RRT5 capability. There is no need to do anything more.

    • If the TV does not have “Downloaded rating table” in the menu, the TV software will need to be updated. Please follow the instructions in the owner’s manual to update the TV software. (If at any point you have issues updating the software, please call the Philips Consumer Care listed in the “Contact Philips” link on the Consumer Support page.)

    • After TV software has been updated, call the Philips Consumer Care at the number listed in the “Contact Philips” link on the Consumer Support page for assistance with activating the RRT5 functionality.
