    Hi , Recently purchased this set and reasonably happy except for two things I got used to with my 'much' older Sony set which don't seem possible on this modern set

    1. OSD. If set to Minimum you don't see a volume indicator when you change volume. If set to Normal you do see the indicator BUT you are plagued with a program number that remains displayed constantly. I just want the volume indicator displayed when I change the volume

    2. EXT. I'd like to assign a programme number to each of the EXT sources therefore meaning I can have single button presses to access them. Mainly so when the TV is switched on in the morning it automatically starts on the SKY channel :)

    Philips say this ain't possible (but I have this response before on other Philips equipment (for different things) and then found solutions hidden in service menus and the like so any advise is greatly appreciated

    I couldn't find anything in the service mode so I fudged a workaround (of sorts)

    1. To have the volume indicator but not the persistant programme name simply edit the programme name to be blank. I use SKY most the time so editing ext1 to blank is fine for me.

    2. To get the one button press to get to SKY I made EXT1 the only programme in my favourite list


    ..like I said, its a fudge. I'm very surprised these basic features aren't on the set (and I didn't manage a method that would enable SKY to be the default TV Channel when tv is switched on) but hey.. I'll get over it. If anyone finds a better solution please let me know.
