How to Hook up a Philips TV for Cable


Investing in a cable program can be very rewarding. You have access to more shows and movies, but it can also be very frustrating if you are a do-it-yourselfer and hit a snag. Hooking a Philips TV for cable is just a matter of plugging things in the correct spot. These simple instructions will ensure that whether you are connecting your Philips TV for the first time, or are simply moving your set to another cable link in the house, you will be up and running in no time.

  • Determine whether the cable TV input into your home is a single cable, or a converter box installation. In either case, the connection to the television is the same. Put the threaded end of the cable into the television's antenna plug (most often found in the back, but can also be located on the side or the front). Screw the cable in until it's tight.

  • If your cable television signal is a single cable, then you are ready to connect directly to the input plug on the TV. This is often labeled as "Input" or "IN."

  • Connect the cable TV cable to the input plug on the TV. Set the TV for the type signal you just connected by using the "Tuner Mode Control." Use “Auto Program” feature to log only the channel numbers on your cable system.

  • If you have a cable converter box, connect the cable TV signal to the "IN" plug on the converter box.

  • Connect the OUT plug from the converter to the labelled input plug on the TV. Set the TV to a channel corresponding with the converter's CH 3/4 switch. This should be located on the back of the converter.

  • If you have double checked that everything corresponds correctly and the cable isn't working, contact your cable company. It may be that the signal is not coming through. Most companies will not charge to send an expert to check it out for you.
