Mitsubishi CS 13101

I am having trouble with the "input" and what the "ext" means when it appears.  I recently bought a Philips DVD/VCR recorder and can't get it to work with the tv and thought maybe EXT has some relevance.  any idea?  or is there some way you can assist on why the dvd/vcr doesn't record?  thanks.

Re: mitsubishi CS 13101

EXT means external input,i.e.from an outside or alternate source.

That source could be a DVD / VCR , cable box, video game,etc.

2) New dvd/vcr recorders allow A / V inputs only,usually obtained

from a source box ( cable or satellite ) They do not have coax cable input/output,also known as RF in/RF out.

3)The dvd/vcr manufacturer expects the consumer to upgrade equipment periodically.If your TV or A/V receiver ( surround sound) has a video monitor output,problem solved!


Hope I helped you ......T.

Most of these universal remotes don't always have the same features as the original remote. I usually just keep the old remote for just that purpose---to set the T-Set. Otherwise, sorry.

What do I need to connect an old TV with only one output on back to a TWC cable box, DVD Player, VCR and a Play Station?

Just connect the PS3 it also works as a DVD player. Do you really need a VCR player? You can get a converter box to stream the VCR footage through the DVD player/ PS3

I have a Philips TV and I believe I must have sat on the remote control. I now have 'EXT 1' (or whatever extension I might be using - i.e. for DVD) permanently on screen. How do I get rid of it??!!

Hi There,

I really need to know the model number for the TV to give the correct answer, but on most Philips TVs, the INFO button (on the Philips remote supplied with the TV) will switch this feature on and off.

If you don't have an INFO button or you still can't remove the channel/input information, please reply to me with the model number of your TV.

Hope this helps.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Hello. If you have your vcr or dvd hooked up to your tv it will over ride channels and the video will appear as long as you have the tv on channel 3 for some setups or channel 4 for others. Joe

The mikomi ctv14440 I have has a scart socket on the back. Plug in an scart to av phono adaptor which has an input/output switch. Set the switch to input and press AV on the remote control. Now you can use the mikomi ctv14440 as an AV monitor with suitable leads. Press TV on the remote control to return to normal TV.

My Screen Said "Are You Sure" and "Please Wait" and now, instead of "AV", i have "AV1" and "AV2" and my tv wont show picture from the dvd player OR vcr

You will need to go back into the menu and see what ia available in the video input mode. You may have switched the type of input you can use such as default or componts ect. If you have an isntruction manual, look in there or call the manufacturer, should also be in the instruction or user manual. Good Luck
