Question about Philips Cineos HTS9800W System
Hello I have HTS9800W/12 and my neighbour have same model, so now my rear
speakers make connection with neighbour´s system not mine.
I changed ID channel (now ID=2) under receiver box (blue light box) and it helped - no connection with neighbour system. But now my system also dont make connection with receiver box.
How I can change ID channel in HTS9800W/12 model?
It should work by holding down SURR button, but I read that with "/12" model it dont work?!
I also have a hts9800w with rear speaker problems. Wireless box (covers the 3 rear speakers) intermittently not connecting when powering on. Tried different frequencies on the box/DVD unit but still the same problem. Have always had this problem even after swapping the whole system. Philips have arranged to replace the remote box but I don't believe that it is going to work

Try this one:
Set up the HTS9800W and playback any CD. Toggle the ‘SURR’ button on the remote control till 6.1 audio surround mode is shown on the FTD.
Please check if there is a blue light on top of the wireless receiver box.
1a) If Yes, there is a blue light,
Step 1 -> Press and hold SOUND button on the remote control to change channel. The channel
change is reflected on the front display of the set as CH0, CH1 or CH2.
Check if there is audio. If no audio, please repeat procedure to change channel till all 3 channels
are tried. If there is audio from the rear speakers, issue is solved.
If not, please proceed to Step 2.
Step 2 -> Press and hold SURR button on the remote control to change ID. This ID change is
reflected on the front display of the set as ID1, ID2 or ID3.
Note: For later sets(if above procedure do not work), the procedure to change the ID is as follows:
1) Go to Aux mode
2) Key in “8” , “6” ,”2”, “4”
3) ID change is reflected on the FTD of the set as ID1, ID2 or ID3.
Step 3 -> Repeat step 2 till FTD shows ID1. Proceed to look for a mechanical switch (hidden by a
white sticker) at the bottom of the wireless receiver set and switch it to number '1'. See Fig 2 to 4
for ID switch location. Check for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all
the rear speakers.
Blue LED ON
Peel off the white sticker label to reveal
If there is no audio, please repeat Step 2 and 3 till you get ID2 and set the wireless receiver box
switch to ‘2’. Check again for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all the
If there is no audio, please repeat Step 2 and 3 till you get ID3 and set the wireless receiver box
switch to ‘3’. Check again for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all the
Hope that helps....

Does your system have a separate volume or level control for the rear speakers? also, are they subs? or actual rear speakers?
