Question about Philips HTS-6500/37 System
My HTS6500 stops reading dvds, keep saying "no disc". Now I mainly use it's usb port to play my avi files. My flat screen tv only have 2 hdmi port, one hooked up with the HTS6500, the other with the XBOX360. I have a hdmi splitter to hook up the HTS6500 and the dvd recorder (a Philips!), I can watch dvds with the recorder and the HTS6500 set to "TV", but I cannot record. Can anyone tell me how to set up my dvd recorder correctly to record any programs from the TV? I don't use cable or satellite, just over-the-air via ATSC tuner and an antenna.
Dlfisher, thanks for the suggestion. I already tried the lens cleaning disc thing and upgraded to the latest firmware, but the HTS6500 is stilll showing "no disc". For the dvd recorder hook up, I sorta solved my own problems, I hooked up the dvd recorder to the tv's component connection instead of to the hdmi via splitter, and connect the antenna to both the HTS6500 and the recorder via a splitter. Now I can watch and record dvds via the component input.

Suddenly had this problem. My Phillips is hooked up to TV and to Cable Box. When I inserted a DVD it would return a "no disc" but it would read and play CDs. After a call to Phillips...who said that they had no idea what was going on and I should take it in for service...it was 4 months out of warranty. Repair company said it was not worth the repair costs ($200) so I should try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc. I bought a Maxell. It has a set of little brushes on the bottom of the disc. I inserted it and played track 2 for 20 seconds as instructed and voila! It began reading the DVDs again. I was only out the $10 for the disc cleaner. If you have this problem, try the disc cleaner first as it might be the fix.
