For those who are having problems with reception with these Philips antennas I suggest a possible fix for this. It may be an assembly problem with the phasing wires. I would still blame Philips for the very inadequate assembly instructions. The step in the instructions that tell you to connect the phasing wires from the rear boom (boom B) to the front boom (Boom A) should also state that the phasing wires should cross, but not touch. If you simply connected the phasing wire strait forward, sort of how the picture can be interpreted, you will get very poor performance of the antenna. I bent my phasing wires right at the point they leave the rear boom and then again at the point where the wire already has an S bend. The phasing wire coming from the right on the rear boom (Boom B) connects to the left on the front boom (Boom A). The phasing wire from the left on the rear boom (boom B) connects to the right on the front boom (Boom A). When done and looking from the top the phasing wires will make and X and then pass forward straight to the connections. I am sorry for the lengthy description, but without a picture it takes a lot to describe.

How do I bypass the bad tuner on my Sony KV-32FS13 through my VCR - I have DISH Sat.


Hookup the the vcr to the AV jack then plug the antenna and other devices into the vcr and tune everything through this. The AV ports on a TV are independent of the internal analog/digital tuner.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

I recently install a cable line for my lxi tv and installed a vcr/dvd player. Now, I have no picture or a few channels are snowy. I do not have a remote and must use the hard buttons. I did notice that...


Hi Chara77,

There maybe a couple issues that could be causing your problems.

a) Check your cable lines to make sure there are no cable breaks, or loose connectors. Tightening down connectors will sometimes assist with that as well.

b) Depending on how you change the channels there maybe an issue with the television not receiving the full signal from the vcr/dvd player and you may need to change channels only from it.

P.S. SAP stands or "Second Audio Programing" it usually allows secondary audio tracks such as bilingual programing. It should not affect your picture.

Cordially

Hooking up a tv


Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok
1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr
2. then other scart from vcr into tv
3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr.
you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr.
If the channels change then your on the right av channel.
Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through.
You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead.
say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems.
Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
