View Full Version : 42PFL7606K/02 Automatic channel installation doesn't work, manual does

12-12-2011, 09:28 AM
If I enter a frequency (e.g. 306 Mhz) manually, the tuner finds channels and I can store and use them. The infos on the screen are e.g. Signal quality 94 (BER:0.18x1E-6)
signal strength 93.
QAM modulation 64-
QAM Symbol rate 6.875. (see attachment)

So if I have a lot of time I can look at the frequency on my Kathrein tuner (see attachment), enter it manually on the Philips, let it search, it always finds channels on that frequency, then I can store the results.
It should work automatically, but the automatic channel search with same start parameters (country germany, Cable connection) returns 0 digital channels.

The problem had been submitted to support by email as well. They phoned the same day and suggested that I go into the settings menu to the right of the search button and selct Full Search which is more thorough but takes longer. I did so, set 1Mhz steps for the search and set it going. It did take much longer (about an hour) but it found all the TV channels.
Thanks to Philips support
