    Well apart from the power cable which you obviously have all you need is a coaxial cable connecting an aerial to the aerial socket on the box (make sure it is the aerial in socket and not the out one for pass through to the TV) and a Scart from the Scart socket on the box probably marked TV to a scart on the TV.
    You need to check that the TV is set to the right AV input. Probably 1 and you need to go into the Philips menu and do a channel search. From memory it is under getting started, if you have not done that already.
    You may of course not have a good enough Freeview signal in your area in which case none of this will make a difference.

    Hope this helps, you did not say what you had done or connnected already so sorry if this sounds a bit basic.

    PS I presume you do not have a manual because that has the connection diagrams. You can probably get one or a very similar one at the Philips site. Click here
