Customer Question
I have purchased a Philips...
I have purchased a Philips indoor HDTV/UHF/VHF antenna, model sdv6122/27.
I am trying to hook it up to a Philips model 19PFL3403D/27 3000 series LCD/HDTV.
The HDTV was hooked to a cable system.
I can get the UHF channels but not the VHF channels.
What am I Doing wrong?
I have lost my HDTV Manual and wonder if this is a TV setup problem.
