The Set-up screen asking if I want to Auto-Program keeps poping up on the screen in the middle of a show. If I hit the Channel up button to Yes auto-program it stops the auto-program preocess in the middle adn I get all snow, Hit + or + a couple of times adn the pix comes back but the screen pops up again in a few minutes or less. If I hit channel down to exit it comes back even faster.
I don't want to throw it out as the pix is still very good, but this is real annoying.

Re: set-up screen keeps popping up
This might not be a solution but it is a suggestion,your set by now has many loose conections this is as true as your name Less,I would suggest to go in looking for loose conections and overheated ares,while you are looking check the horizontal driver transformer and make sure all 4 legs are solid,this is only as a preventive maintenace,as far as the reason why is doing what is doing I got a feeling you will find an intermitant conection.If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance.It should not be expensive.

Select and highlight INPUT CONFIGURATION and press ENTER. Using the left/right arrow buttons, select Antenna or Cable as desired, then select DONE. Press the CH RTN button to go back to the TERRESTRIAL menu. Select START SCAN to begin the Channel Program.Aug 7, 2013
I assume you have analog cable TV service and no cable box. Press MENU button on your TV remote. Go over to CHANNEL SETUP. There are four arrow buttons and a button in the middle of the arrow buttons on the TV remote control. Use these arrow buttons to go up, down, left and right. Use the button in the center to select. TV On-screen menu has Video, then Audio, then Channel Setup.
Cable can be set to ON or OFF, you want to set it ON to get cable channels. Go down to AUTO PROGRAM and select it, press button in the center of arrow keys. A short delay while available channels are searched so be patient. After Auto Program finishes, press MENU to exit. You can perform Auto Program whenever required.
You can also add or skip channels manually. You will discover more options in the TVs menus.
Turn scanner on. Make sure Key Pad is set to ON. Press the manual button until the Channel display shows the channel you want to program (i.e. 1 thr 10) On the key pad enter the freqency and hit the E key when done. Hit the Manual key to select the next Channel you want to program. Repeat process. When finished hit the scan button. If you want to see what freqency is programmed for a channel hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the Review button. If you want to lockout a channel (i.e. a channel that continuously broadcasts like the National Weather Service, hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the L/O button. Hitting it again will unlock the channel.
In order to get all the channels u have to have the original remote or a universal remote that has a menu button, an enter button, and directional pad (the directional pad cannot control the volume and channels it must be for navigating). push and hold the menu button, the menu will appear then disappear, once it disappears release the button and enter 9876 then press enter. a different menu will appear and it will b three black lines, one at the top of the screen, one in the middle and one at bottom. the middle line has 3 sections the first part is the item number the second part is the description and the last part is the on/off switch using either a 0 or 1. push down on the directional pad until u get to the 00 factory settings 0 and change the 0 to a 1 with the right button on the directional pad. then scroll up to 20 channel lock 0 (i think its 20, it may be like 22 but it is in the twenties for sure) and change the 0 to a 1. then go back down to the 00 factory settings and change the 1 back to 0 then turn the tv off. when u turn the tv back on it will either automatically ask u to auto tune or u will have to go to auto program to program the channels. there are like 80 different menu items, be sure not to mess with any other ones unless u know what ur doing, u could cause ur tv not to function properly or even be able to turn on.
this problem frustrated me greatly and im very happy to help whoever i can with the solution
Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.
Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.
Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).
make sure the cables are connected correctly, the manual will show that.
If the mwr20v6 has a tuner you must have the channel on the dvd set to the program, if it has no tuner, you must have your tv set to the correct channel.
If you're on cable you need to make sure your set is in the "cable mode". After this you choose from the menu "auto program" or "auto search" and then hit the button on your remote or on the front panel and your set should go through all cahnnels and remember the ones that have a signal on them.
