Lines across screen when using View On Demand channels

Hi, I've just got a Philips 42PF5521D. I've got Tiscali/Homechoice cable. When I access any View on Demand, Movie rental channels, etc. the screen gets horizontal lines/bands across it. This stops as soon as you exit out of the VOD channels. All other viewing is fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Could be a couple of things causing this.

1) Obvious, but I assume that you subscribe to these services, because otherwise it could be the encryption.

2) Make sure that you have the set-top box connected directly to the TV, and not through an external recorder (VCR, DVD etc)
This would be a problem if the services were copy protected in the same way DVDs are.


You could also check the settings on the set-topbox. Make sure the video output is set to RGB.

How to remove DRM protection from iTunes movie rentals to MP4


As most iTunes users know, iTunes not only allows users to purchase classic films or popular videos from its store but also provide rental service for the users. People are more likely to rent a movie than buy one, that means cost less.
However, low cost also has its drawbacks. Once you've started to watch the movie, you have 24 hours to finish watching the movie (even if you start watching before the download is complete). You can watch the movie as many times as you want within this 24-hour period. The rented movie will expire when either the 30 day or 24-hour limit is reached. Once the rental expires, the movie is automatically deleted. You must re-rent and download the movie to view it after your rented movie has expired.
So in order to keep iTunes movie rentals for long time with MP4 players while not online, the rented files needed to be converted with an appropriate program.
Instructions
  1. Download a converter program like M4V Converter Plus for Win. Install the program by double-clicking on the installation file after download. Finish the installation, click the icon and launch it.
  2. Click the Add Movies in top left corner, then you will see the pop up windows which will show you all the iTunes purchases and rentals. Find the file you want to convert and click OK button.
  3. The added movie rentals will show up on the main window. And then set the output as you need. Here we choose Same as source for MP4 from the output profile list.
  4. Click Convert button to start the iTunes movie rentals to MP4 conversion.

I have a philips tv,it's a 2002 model(pcw127 C121).It was originally a hotel room tv and it was given to me.I only want to use it to watch movies.I plugged in the dvd player to the two jacks in the front...


Hi Russell,

TV's most commonly found in Hotels do not have an input button which is what you would use on almost every TV set out there.

I believe that if you go to channel 2 and then channel down there maybe an AV1, AV2, Video1, Video2 or even an A1, or A0, etc.. This is what you will need to tune the TV to in order to watch a movie from the VCR or DVD player using the RCA Cables.

Unfortunately there is not a user manual online at this time, but this is where you would find it:

Magnavox DV220MW won't record.


You need to plug a red, white, and yellow cord from the red, white, and yellow OUT of your cable or satellite box into the red, white, and yellow labelled VCR IN/LINE 1 on the Philips. To view what you are trying to record, make sure there is another red, white, and yellow cable plugged from the DVD/VCR OUT of the Philips to your television. Make sure the television is on the appropriate source channel (AUX 1, AUX 2, VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, etc). Then press the VCR button on the Philips. You should now see your cable or sat channel (as long as it's not an HD Satellite box) on the television screen. Press record, and you are on your way. Good luck!

'F' displaying on screen and remote not responding.


Excavated with Google from Philips website: " When a letter F appears on the right hand corner of the screen it means the television is in factory mode. To exit from factory mode, press the 'VOLUME -' and ?CHANNEL -? buttons on the TV set simultaneous for 5 seconds. " Hope this helps Michael Junge
