I'm from Portugal.
I bought this Philips Tv a month ago but i'm facing many troubles with DVB-T inputs.
First week was impossible to see any channel cause image loss every 5 seconds.
Then i switch off tv for one week and turn on again and repeat serch channels again and image stabilized more or less but
i was starting to can see a program or some Tv series.
Last weekend i was try to test external usb HD to check if tv read movies and substitles and the problem of DVB-T image loss channels is back. It's impossible to see any tv. So, it must be there any issue/interference with different connections of TV.

I'm using External antenna.
Tv works well with a external DVB-T tuner and the same external antenna cable connect in other tv i have with internal DVB-T works very well too, no image loss.

=> So I can only conclude that the problem is on DVB-T board of Philips TV (have a problem or it's bad) or is a software problem. Last weekend i saw here an user that put youtube video showing a similar problem on image loss. I'm not sure but i think that was a 7606 series....

This Tv needs improvement on:

EPG ( or Programming Guide) - Compare with other Tv brands this service is very poor. We don't have any shortcut in remote control. I must go to "Home TV" and when i enter Tv lost sound, why???
It should be able to see tv image on back of the screen too while i check EPG like other tvs or External DVB-T tuners.

Change channels or when turn on tv - You can only see the name of Channel.
You should see a bar bellow of screen with the program information/hours you are watching on tv. This is the normal on DVB-T!
On this Philips, i need to press a button on remote control and choose "What is" ( i think, not sure) !??! This is not normal!
Beyond see the name of Channel, TV should be show program information info by default.

Home Menu - Sound/image menus - Watching tv when switch in the options of that menus, channel sound is cut ( loss sound).

Hours Shortcut remote control - No exist and it's very difficult to found hours on this tv.

By now, this are the problems i see already, not sure if i will find more... :O/

Can someone help me with this DVb-T problem?
And someone too of Philips can give me some feedback on this issues?

Thanks in advance

Hi Draven.

Could you please confirm what software that is installed on your TV?

Please check the signals that these are good/strong, maybe contact your providers too for further check.

Best regard,
