Re: philips 23pf9946 tv

What do you mean by 'stream from my pc'? None of the info I see for the device indicates it has any such feature. Does it have some sort of network plug on the back? Do you really mean that you would like to use the TV as a secondary display in Windows?

I would like to connect my pc to my tv so I can stream tv from the pc to the tv. My LG isn't a smart tv but it has all the bells and whistles.

I'd go buy a Google Chromecast. It is a cheap effective way to connect your PC (or tablet or smartphone) to your TV, wirelessly.

It is a powered 'dongle' which plugs in to a HDMI port on the TV. You download and install the free Chromecast software to the PC and start it, then select the HDMI port on the TV.

This arrangement will then show on the TV anything which is on the PC monitor, be it streaming TV, movies, Youtube or whatever. Then all you need is to find the streaming service of your choice and sign up with a provider. Free-to-air TV is usually on the Net as well.

How can I add the MLB tv app to my Philips smart tv, they don't have a market button or app.

The best solution in this case would be to add an external streaming device to an HDMI input on your TV. Much cheaper than replaceing your TV that does not feature the application.

You might see if when you are online if there is a software upgrade for your TV model that might upgrade the applications.

Help me see my Netflix on my TV

Acquire a streaming internet player at a retail store or online. Streaming internet players allow you to stream movies and tv shows from Netflix, videos from YouTube, and music from Pandora, among other options. Different streaming internet players include, but are not limited to:
  • Apple TV
  • Roku
  • Boxee
  • Sony Streaming Player
Plug the player into its outlet. Power it up in order to hook it up with your TV and get it connected to the internet.
Connect your streaming internet player to your TV. There are several different ways to do this:
  • Connect with an HDMI cable. If you have an HDTV, you'll probably want to make use of that sparkling resolution by purchasing an HDMI cable and hooking the cable both into your player and the back of the TV.
  • Connect with a standard A/V cable if you don't have HDTV. Match up the yellow/red/white ports on the back of your TV to the video and audio cables.
Connect to your network. After turning on your streaming internet player, you'll want to connect to the internet. Most streaming internet players nowadays come with wireless internet setup, meaning you don't have to go through the hassle of plugging cables in everywhere in order to get a signal. Simply type in your internet name and password into the guided setup when you turn on your device.
  • If you don't have wireless internet capabilities, you're going to most likely connect one end of an Ethernet cable into the back of your streaming internet player, and the other end into an open Ethernet port on your router.
Finalize your setup. You've got power to your streaming player, you've got it connected to your TV, and you have internet. Consider a few other options before you start watching Netflix from the pleasure of your couch instead of your PC screen.
  • Download any of the latest software offered by the streaming internet player. This could help expedite things and offer cool perks.
  • Choose your video output resolution. Especially helpful for HD nuts.
  • Consider linking the player to your online account, if possible. Some players will use social media to share what you watch with your friends, as well as offering suggestions based on what your friends are watching.

I have a philips tv model number 32 pfl 3805h/12 and was wondering if i can watch movies from an external hard drive? what format does the hard drive need to be?

Your TV does not have a USB port so you cannot connect an external HDD and stream movies on to the TV. But you can buy a HDD based media player which has the necessary output sockets as well as all kinds of decoders built in to stream movies on to your TV.

Yes, this is true. It is in need of a firmware update. Here's is where you can get the firmware update and the instructions on how to flash. Probably have to direct connect you pc via usb on the back, however I am not 100% sure. Hope this helps and don't forget to rate this high.

How do i get a software upgrade for my tv

You will need a USB port or SD Card reader on the TV set in order to update the TV's Firmware. (note: some TV manufactures specify what types of memory are compatible with their TV sets i.e. magic gate, etc.)

Use the appropriate storage device for your TV set and go to:

Enter the model number in the search box. It will search for available software/firmware for your TV set. Download it and save it to your storage device.

Insert the storage device into the TV set. If the software/firmware update screen does not come up automatically, select update software/firmware from the TV's menu.

I hope this helps.

It's a software problem with the TV. Go to the PHILIPS web site for downloading the latest software upgrade for your TV to fix the problem.
Lots of Philips TV are having the same problem. Philips support should provide the software for free.

Set up menu will not exit

Most of the newer Philips TVs have upgradeable software to fix that problem. You'll need a USB memory stick to download the software for the TV. Go to the Philips web site and they should have the correct software for your TV and will have the procedure for you to do the software upgrade.
