Audio from an external input only shows as mono on the TV information display.

If you are only getting sound through one speaker of the TV, check the scart connections are all in fully, and straight.

If you are getting sound through both speakers, then the sound is stereo. Stereo only shows when there is a NICAM stereo sound source, which is only through analogue terrestrial TV.

Sound very poor

there could be a few issues. It could be the speakers themselves. I believe this tv has an audio out. I would hook it up to a stereo and see if it that improves it. It could also be something internal like the amplifier. You have a couple options but I would just use a stereo for sound. If you still need more assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

You could try switching the tv off at the mains for a couple of minutes. This should get it out of the setup menu.
Have a look on ebay for a remote control.

TV does not have aHDMI port so what audio and vdeo csbles needed to connect to a Sky HD box ?

There is a side socket connection set on your Philips TV. You can connect two audio channels Left and Right and one Video. Connect these socket with an AV cable, and connect the other end of that cable to your SKY HD boxe's respective output sockets. Then select the TV input to AV by going into its menu and surfing through it. That is all for settings. OK

Mono/stereo keeps flashing on my TV screen. How do I fix it?

so for us not using cable for this, what do we do? even plugging a game console into this plug will have same results. keeps switching from mono to stereo making the sound stutter. why does the TV get to decide on its own? who thought of that? is there a setting to choose for it so it doesnt have to bother?

When watching dvd having showing or fade background

yes it can be down to signal degradation especially via scart lead, make sure you use a decent scart if you buy an expensive one you can tell the difference. Run a cable from your sky digibox direct to your tv to see if the picture improves.

Usually you would connect the SKY box to the DVD recorder and the DVD recorder to your TV, check you installation guides for setup instructions, which should show you a preferred layout diagram,
