Philips 40PFL9704 settings

I would like to know what are the settings for Philips 40PFL9704 used during the test in WHAT HI FI for best picture results.

 

Any suggestions from current users of their best settings are welcome...

 

Thanks in advance

most of the reviews ive read for that tv suggest that you need to alter the settings slightly for different sources and material , sd , hd , sport etc , to get the best out of it ..

Sorry I thought I typed that. They are yeah. I use the ones which are relevant on mine and found it as a good starting point though. Just a little tweak here and there. IMO it would be easier than starting from the factory settings.

yes i dont think the two tvs differ much apart from the led backlighting on the 9704 , so id agree those settings would probably be a good base to tinker from

Re: Philips 40PFL9704 settings

Just noticed the other day some screen burn on my philips lcd, measuring in about 18 cms long in about the middle of the screen about two inches from the left edge of the screen. Pretty sad to be honest. I suppose there is nothing i can do?


Thanks

I try those then as the starting point.

 

Maybe one of the editors can help me on that?

 

One more thing, I tried to connect my Vaio laptop using HDMI cable (my laptop has one) in order to watch movies as I always did that before.... I have picture...but no sound...very strange.... on laptop I can see that the sound goes out (the scale on the loud speaker is moving)... but no sound on tv...any idea????  Also...did not manage to connect to laptop using DLNA Sad

Hi Max


Yep warranty expired was only 1 year and was purchased from empiredirect - not good.


What do you think? Also what would be the case if it was still under warranty and the retailer was still trading?


Cheer's.

Had the same problem with my 9664 and Vaio laptop. However I got it fixed by setting the HDMI output to the primary sound output, or deafault or whatever it's called. Sometimes I don't need to do this sometimes I do... It's very odd, but it solves the problem. Enjoy.

Duol, can you be a bit more specific what exactly you mean?? Which settings exactly...? Will try to play around a bit with the settings...however, I think the only output selected should be the HDMI since this is the cable used to connect both devices.

 

Did you managed by the way to connect them using DLNA????

Re: Philips 40PFL9704 settings

Well, the only way I have managed to connect them is so that I can browse certain file types on the TV< but if it's not supported by the TV then it was a no go, not sure if this is what you mean by DLNA...? I haven't actually used it very much because the TV supports a limited number of file types.

What I mean is you have to go into the control panel and to sound options, manage audio devices and then set the HDMI output to the default one it's going to use, and not the speakers... One would think it would do this on its' own, but it hasn't done so for me. You may have to switch it back after your done to get sound from the laptop too, its' kind of a pain, but it does work as I regularly watch things from my laptop... I hope that helps a little, it is quite fiddely though.

Duol, the HDMI is set as default and I can actually see that it is used... the thing is the TV does not have any sound Sad  Very strange
