How to connect external devices to my Philips device?

1) Connect a TV. * Connect the S-video connection of the device with an S-video cable to the corresponding IN connection on the TV. Normally this will be a side-connection. In many cases it is possible to use an S-video to a SCART adapter for connecting to a SCART IN connection of the TV. Refer to the user?s manual of the TV whether there is a SCART connection that supports S-video. If you want to hear the sound through the speakers of the TV connect the LINE OUT audio connection on the device with an analogue audio cable (red and white cinch) to the corresponding IN connection of the TV. This can be the corresponding side connection or the red and white cinch connections on the S-video to SCART adapter. * If the TV does not have an S-video connection: connect the VIDEO connection of the device with a video cable (yellow cinch) to the corresponding IN connection on the TV. Normally this will be a side-connection. In many cases it is possible to use a video to SCART adapter for connecting to a SCART IN connection of the TV.
