Word Component1 shows up when changing local channels

Each time I try to change one of my local channels, the word "Component1" will show up in the upper right hand corner of the tv, this causes a delay in the channel starting. I have called Direct TV and the number they gave me has indicated that no "live agents" were available. What can I do to correct this problem?

thank you

Your Direct TV box is switching between a Standard Definition channel and a High Definition channel. When this happens, the TV has to switch the display format. As the format is changing, you will briefly loss picture, the TV detects the new format, and then displays it. What you are seeing is the normal operation of the TV. It the TV did not blank the picture, you would see a broken chopped up picture during the transition. If you are familiar with the setup menu of the Direct TV box, you could change the video format settings so than it locks to the High Definition format. If you are not familiar with the Setup menu, you should contact Direct TV and ask then to walk you though this procedure. Specifically, ask them to "Help me set my Direct TV box so that it always displays in 1080i format." You pay for them for the service, they should be able to provide you with some phone support at no charge. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Why can I not find an input to accept an antenna for local? When i change channels it shows cable and then the channel #. Do I need to change that? If so how? TY TONS


I asume that, depending on the model of TV, there could be some models that doesn't have the standard aerial input. You should post exact model of your TV, so we could try to find user manual and check the supported input types.

Can not stop scheduled TV recording to DVD by pessing the STOP button


This happens if you are watching the show live and recording at the same time.

Option 1
Try changing the channel. It will ask you if you want to stop recording and go to the other channel.

Option 2
Go to the list of recorded shows. You can delete the show you wanted to press stop during (it will still be recording). The show will be deleted and, therefore, recording will be stopped.

Channel stuck and can't record shows the same night


Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.

Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.

Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).

Good luck!

Guide listings are incomplete


1. Manually scan all channels on your TV with your TV remote and write down the channels and network shown:
(sample: 119.2 C-SPAN2 digital channel).
2. Go to Edit Channels and find the icon for C-SPAN2 (about icon 261 in my zip code). Manually change the channel from Off to On, Insert the frequency, and optionally insert the number you want the channel to show in your channel listing ( or move it manually later).

I have about 10 to add each time I reset my recorder.
