    How to connect several external devices to Philips TV?

    Published on 2016-12-29

    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.

    • 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.

    • If you want to connect more than one of this kind of external devices, the YPbPr- (or component-, or YUV-) connection is a good choice.

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

    After connecting several devices you select any one of them with the [Source] button on the remote control of your TV. When you press this button repeatedly you select the external connections alternatively.

    • Connect an audio device (home cinema set, amplifier) to the ‘AV OUT L R’ connection at the back of the TV to hear the sound of the TV through your audio system.

    • Connect headphones to the side connector and the TV loudspeaker will be automatically muted. Adjust the headphone volume using the volume button on the remote control.
