Question about Philips 42PF5520D 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma TV
When using the internal digital signal the reception keeps breaking up then returns, this happens every two or so minutes. my area has good digital signal and all my digi boxes have no problems. I have spoken to philips about this and of course they say its not the set. Please help if you can.

make sure you have a connection from one of your scart sockets (assuming you are using scart) on your sat to your pvr and then a connection (scart/hdmi?) to your tv from the pvr.
if you have a second scart or better still hdmi on your sat then plug that into tv
set top box scart output to tv
you do not say which tv model number you have so I dont know what input sockets you have but I will assume a couple of scart inputs and maybe a hdmi in (if hd version of tv) these days that would be considered a minimum amout of inputs so the setup suggestion above should be fine with that

The DIgital signal coming out of the conveter box cannot be recorded with a vcr, as they are analog. I am currently using a switch & switching between analog (rabbit ears) & digital conveter box, which I purchased at Walmart with the government coupon, for $10.00 -had to rig a UHF antenna ($45.00) up on my roof to pick up the digital signal, which dosn't travel as far as the old analog signals. With this switch I can record TV programs in analog, or switch to digital to watch programs. I can record 1 while watching something else. but after Feb. 17, the switch will be useless. I will need to buy a DVR recorder to record any programs at all. Since I can't afford cable TV, I certainly can't afford a DVR! I personally don't like this government-mandated switch to digitsl, as not everyone can afford to take advantage of the new digital signal. My current problem is, for some reason my universal remote (or any that I can find) won't program for my Magnavox converter box!

First verify that the direct TV satellite box is set to receive and display digital stations. If you old set on the sat was analog, the box may not have been reset. You may have to contact you satellite provider. Next you will have to go to the TV menu and auto program/scan in the stations. This should pick up all the stations.
