  • Color problem on DVP5990

    What causes Philips DVP5990 to occasionally lose color when starting DVD. We have had to DVD's out 5 which do this. After the latest DVD problem, I ran a known good DVD and it worked fine. I then put in the problem DVD and it also worked fine.

  • Need advice-Want to use a 1T external HD to play movies...

    I would like to by an external drive (with 1T of space) and store my avi moves on it and use that to play the movies. I was told that I may need to partician the drive because there may be a limit of 32gb space available at a time. If I have to partician the drive, will I be able to see all of my files? Or is this a bad ideal all together? Does anyone know of something easier that I can do? I don't have a fancy TV (a Samsung that is 14 years old), no flat screen, no HI-DEF and no surround sound. Just a basic TV and like to watch movies the old fashioned way. Thanks. Yvonne

  • Blu-ray compatibility

    the DVP5990/F7 it does not recognize my blu-raydisc. Any suggestions on how to fix this or is it not compatible with blu-ray.

  • DVP5990, video projector, and progressive scan

    When I connect this model to my Sanyo Plv-Z1 video projector using the component cables, I don't seem to be able to activate Progressive Scan. When I select the option, I get a notification asking me to check that my TV (!) supports progressive scan and then press OK. When I do press OK, the "progressive" option always reverts to "Off".

    The extremely complicated instructions in the user manual say one should first disable DE-interlacing on one's TV (it always only talks about TVs). Of course, there is no way to disable it on the projector.

    However, even when the option is off, the picture looks as good as via a VGA connector from my PC. So I'm wondering if, despite what the menu indicates, the image really is scanned progressively.

    Philips' product support failed to respond. All suggestions would be welcome.
