1 Important
Safety
•
Properly sealed against leaks at the
installation site.
•
Do not install your antenna on a wet or
windy day.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, get away
from it immediately. Remember: the
antenna, mast, cable, and metal guy wires
are all excellent conductors of electrical
current. Even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line can cause
electrocution and death.
•
If any part of the antenna system should
come in contact with a power line, don’t
touch it or try to remove it yourself. Call
your local power company. They will
remove it safely.
•
If an accident occurs with the power
lines, call for qualified emergency help
immediately.
This manual contains important information
about the Philips indoor/outdoor television
antenna. Read it carefully before you start the
installation and setup.
For indoor use
•
The product shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing and no objects filled
with liquid, such as vases, shall be placed
on the product.
•
To completely disconnect the power
input, the main plug of the product shall
be disconnected from the main AC
outlet.
•
Where the main plug is used as the
disconnect device, the disconnect device
shall remain readily operable.
•
No naked flame sources, such as lighted
candles, should be placed on the product.
For outdoor use
•
If this is the first time you install an
antenna, for your own safety as well as
others, seek professional assistance.
•
Perform as many functions as possible on
the ground.
•
Select your installation site carefully.
Remember: electric power lines and
phone lines look alike. For your safety,
assume that all overhead lines may cause
fatal injury.
•
Ensure that the installation site is
structurally capable to support all loads
(weight of the antenna, weight of ice,
weight of snow and wind force).

Installation
Installation information
This antenna uses a power inserter module to
power the antenna amplifier.
It is essential for proper operation of this
antenna system that the power inserter
be connected between the antenna and
any devices such as splitters, matching
transformers, networks, etc.
Determine the signal strength
Before Installation, determine the best
location for optimum reception. It is important
for the antenna to have an unobstructed path
to the transmitter. For best results, ensure the
antenna faces the location of the transmitter.
Note
•• Indoor, choose a location near a window
which gives the antenna a clear view of the
transmitter.
Note
•• Place the antenna away from metal surface to
avoid interference.

Note
b
•• Complete all assembly work on the ground
before installing on a wall or an antenna mast.

Warning
•• The power injector and power supply are for
indoor use only.
Tip
•• This antenna includes a 6m roll of 3C-2V
coaxial cable. If this is not adequate for your
needs, replace the cable with a RG-6 coaxial
cable instead of adding an extension.

antenna
Connect to the TV
Note
•• As previously noted, the amplifier (Power
injector + Power supply) must be placed inline between the antenna and any splitter or
additional devices.

Connect the coaxial cable from the
antenna to the connector labeled AMP
on the power injector .
Connect the power injector to the
antenna input on the TV, digital set-top
box, splitter or other devices.
Connect the power supply plug to
the power injector , and then plug the
power supply adaptor into a 100-240V
AC receptacle.
EN
You can install available channels with the digital
TV tuner. This automatic process is part of the
setup of the tuner. Ensure the antenna has
set up properly before the tuner can receive
viewable channels.
There are two ways to connect the antenna to
the TV:
•
Connect the antenna to a digital tuner.
If the signal strength is good enough, the
channels can be memorized in the tuner
automatically .
•
Connect the antenna directly to the TV.
Tune to the analogue channels and find
the best antenna location. Then reconnect the antenna to the digital tuner.
Ensure the signal strength is good enough
before you install the channels with the
tuner.

A
Amplifier
A device, either a single stage or a large scale
circuit with multiple stages for creating gain,
i.e. it makes small signals larger.
Antenna
A device, such as a rod or wire, which picks up
a received radio frequency signal or radiates a
transmitted RF signal.
C
Coaxial
A single copper conductor, surrounded with
a layer of insulation, covered by a surrounding
copper shield and finally, an insulating jacket.
An unbalanced transmission line with constant
impedance. In audio, this type is commonly
used for low level, line signals terminated in
RCA connectors.
D
DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting)
DVB is a suite of internationally accepted open
standards for digital television.
F
FM (Frequency Modulation)
In radio broadcasting: a method of modulation
in which the frequency of the carrier voltage
is varied with the frequency of the modulation
voltage.
H
HDTV (High-Definition Television)
It is a digital television broadcasting system
with higher resolution than traditional
12
EN
television systems (standard-definition TV,
or SDTV). HDTV is digitally broadcast;
the earliest implementations used analog
broadcasting, but today digital television
(DTV) signals are used, requiring less
bandwidth due to digital video compression.
U
UHF (Ultra high frequency)
In radio or TV broadcasting: it is the frequency
range of electromagnetic waves which lies
between 300 MHz and 3 GHz (3000 MHz).
V
