I need philips universal 4 digit remote codes


Not sure I can help. You might do well to call Samsung 800-SAMSUNG. But I have the codes that should work if you were hooking the Samsung to a Philips set top box or cable box. Perhaps they are the same? (And how lucky are you that you landed this jewel! I love this unit!

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

My satellite remote control only work at close distance I have canged the batteries I tried it with the other box from bedroom in bedroom they work fine in the sitting room both dont work


Hello Aykuturer,

There are two things that you can try to resolve this problem.

1) most common interferrance for the sky remotes are WII sensors to close to box. or the TV back light is interfearing with it. If this is the case then turn off the WII (if you have one) and try that. If it is the TV back light then you can turn this down or off.

2) If you are still not getting any joy from these then you could always go to EBAY and purchase a Magic Eye / Remote Eye. They are resonably cheap from there.

Once you have got your Magic eye. Connect it into RF OUT 2 at the back of your sky box.
Then with the remote press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, Select then 4 make sure that you turn then power on and then save.

This will sort out any IR problems you are experiencing.

Hope this helps you out, If this does then please leave a thumbs up.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

I just purchased a phillips dvdr3576h and hooked it up to a new vizio. I cant make this thing work.


Try the below first, but you may require additional assistance after this:

First, test to make sure the Philips remote is working by trying to play a dvd. If the remote control is working, then either A) your TV is set to the wrong channel, or B) you have not selected the correct source on the Philips remote.

Look at how the cables run from the back of the Philips to the TV. In the back of your TV, the slot that the cables are plugged in to is usually labelled "AV1, "AV2, "Video 1", "Input 1" or something like that. Change the television to the appropriate input/source channel.

Press the Source button on the Philips remote and make sure it says E1 or whatever the appropriate source is.

Then try changing channels using the Philips remote.

This does not exhaust every possibility, but you must check the above first to see if anything else might be wrong. If the above does not work, then I would double-check to make sure the cable/satellite box is connected to the Philips correctly.

Connecting PVR and satellite receiver


make sure you have a connection from one of your scart sockets (assuming you are using scart) on your sat to your pvr and then a connection (scart/hdmi?) to your tv from the pvr.

if you have a second scart or better still hdmi on your sat then plug that into tv

set top box scart output to tv

you do not say which tv model number you have so I dont know what input sockets you have but I will assume a couple of scart inputs and maybe a hdmi in (if hd version of tv) these days that would be considered a minimum amout of inputs so the setup suggestion above should be fine with that
