My Philips TV is connected to a Cable or Satellite box. Do I have to complete the initial setup when I switch the TV on for the first time?

Updated on 2016-12-29

It is necessary to complete the initial setup regardless of the type of connection you are using.

The initial setup allows you to make a setup of your personal image setting preferences by means of some predefined test pictures.

If you are using a coaxial connection from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV:

  • Only one TV channel specified by the service provider will be stored
  • Change the channels at the Cable or Satellite box to view the program

If you are using a video connection (CVBS, S-Video, YPbPr, HDMI) from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV:

  • No TV or digital radio channels will be stored
  • Press the [Source] button on the remote control repeatedly to select the correct input source
