Question about Philips Cineos HTS9800W System
My Wireless receiver box for the rear speakers will not work with my system anymore, however i have tried it on a friends identical system and it works fine? Anyone know why this could be???
I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.
You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.
It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).
I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

Remember that if you use a wireless router for Notebooks it will affect your wireless connection for Home Cinema. I never believed this, but I did experienced it today. Try changing the ID channel form wireless reciver when the DVD it's ON. That helped me to get it working. Good Luck!
