Question about Philips HTS-6500/37 System

1 Answer

Finding Recording/Playing Channel on TV

I have a Panasonic TH42PX80U TV that I connected to the Philips HTS6500/37 using in turn the first four options in Philips Manual. I still cannot get the Recording/Playing Channel picture to come on the TV screen by pressing the channel down button. I did get the sound to come on, but again, not the picture. What am I doing wrong? Other referenced parts of the manual are of no help in resolving this problem. This is one feature I was really looking forward to using with the Philips. Other features have thus far performed well above my expectations. INITIALLY I was able to "stumble" upon the channel and play and record DVDs until I decided to rewire and upgrade the clarity by using a higher option (going from Option 2 to Option 4 for instance). Now, none of the options work. (Should have let well enough alone.) The only other attachment is the Direct TV DVR which thus far has performed flawlessly. Any suggestions and/or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure there is a yellow video cable (or one of the other types of video cable) running from the Philips to your Panasonic. Make note of how the TV labels that source - Video 1, Video 2, Component 1, etc. Use the TV/Video button on your Panasonic to change the TV to the appropriate input channel - Video 1 or 2 if you used a yellow video cable, Component 1 or 2 if you used a red/green/blue cable, etc. Now, make sure that the Philips is in Disc mode by pressing the Disc button on the Philips remote. You should now have picture.

Your TV does support Audio Return Channel (ARC). Try connecting your Bluray player to HDMI 2 and your sound bar to HDMI 1(ARC). You will need to make sure that VIERA link is turned on in the Setup menu of the TV.

sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

DVD Player Only Produces Snow After Power Outage. Halp!


Sounds like your TV has lost the DVD channel. Turn off TV and make sure the DVD player is connected to TV and is playing a DVD. Now put you TV on and press the SOURCE or AV button on your TV remote until you can see the DVD channel. In older TVs you may need select channel and tune it manually using the TV setup.

How do you tape on vcr from a vcr?


The 'quick and dirty' way is to connect the VCR playing the tape via the RF OUTPUT coaxial connector to the RF (sometimes ANTENNA) connector on the recording VCR with it set to channel three or four. BOTH units must be set to the SAME channel. The better way is to use the RCA jacks and all but the very oldest should have a yellow jack (Video) output connected to the other unit's (yellow) video input and for sound, the output white jack connected to the white input jack (left channel) and the red output jack would go to the red input jack on the recording unit. This latter method yields a cleaner signal than the first method.

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound


I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer
