Question about Philips TP3684C 36" TV

Open Question

Default startup input

When the startup timer is not set, the TV defaults, it seems, to the coax input. I want it to always default to AV1, because that is where my TiVo feeds in and I don't want to change the TV AV mode each time I power up. If the timer is set for AV1, then it seems to set the default to that even for manual power on. Am I missing something?

AV1 input question

The TV probably defaults to the RF channels. If it is an analogue only tuner model then it will go to the last used/programmed RF channel.

I have a dvd player drc212 that i have no

Hi Tana,

If your TV is supplied with a video input, you will need a set of Composite Baseband video cables commonly known as RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White).

See the last paragraph if your TV is not supplied with a video input.

You will connect the Yellow (Video) from the DVD's video output, to the Yellow (Video) input on the TV set; example is VIDEO 1 or AV1.
You will connect the Red (Right Audio) from the DVD's Red Audio output, to the Red (Right Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.
You will connect the White (Left Audio) from the DVD's White Audio output, to the White (Left Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.

Turn on DVD, and TV set. Select the proper input on the TV set using the input button (video, source, AV select, etc.)

If your TV set is not supplied with a video input only a coax cable input, you will need an RF Modulator which can be purchased at any Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-mart, etc. You will also need a small coax jumper (3 to 6 foot should do it), and a set of RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White) as described above. The RF Modulator comes with instructions on how to connect it. It has a coax input, RCA input and a coax output that will connect to your TV set.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

Bush TV and Setting Default Inputs

Not an expert on this model but generally if you switch the TV on by pressing the remote's power button it will come back using the input you previously used. If you press a channel button it will come back to DTV.

I can't work out how to change the default input Sony KV-24WX1U

Don't think it can be done,you'll have to change it manually or it should go to AV1 when you turn on the cable decoder.

Hooking up & seeing a dvd player?

does the dvd have a coax output for coax antenna input on the tv? you can use that untill you can get the video input selection straight with the tv and a remote that supports rca's extra functions such as menu , tv/av button
also if there is a( wake-up) on/off timer in the tv menu , then you can also set it to come on with the video input instead of a tv station,set it a few minutes after the time it is when you set it( then just turn off the tv set after the time is set and you have exited the menu, then it will come on with the video input instead of a tv station)
otherwise you will need that remote that supports the video input selection on your tv

Hi i cant get no sound other than frying inmt rear left and right spearkerall the other is working

YES check your connections and make sure you have selected the right INPUT signal source on your surround sound just remember RCA cables (yellow red white) goes from digital box,CABLE or SATELLITE OUTput to surround INput from there connect another RCA cable from the OUTPUT of the surround sound to the AV1 Input on the TV make sure AV1 is selected on the TV,if you dont know how just put the TV on channel 3 then press the channels down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 the next channel down from that should be AV1.Also make sure you have selected the right INPUT for the surround sound.

If you are not using RCA jack and just coax follow or you dont have a digital box.Connect the cable from the wall to the INput
on the surround sound the the cable OUT to the tv make sure the surround sound is Looking for a signal from the coax.
