"We just bought this and ...

By Clnqueen Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 05/01/2006

We just bought this and we have had problems with it already. It came with no instructions for troubleshooting, and we can't even get the TV to bring its volume through our Surround Sound! It works for our DVD Player, and Playstation. But we can't switch from a paused playstation game to TV without quitting our game first.

"********** DO NOT BUY ...

By Sidd Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 04/20/2006

[...] ************ ********** DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT ************ This is a case of FALSE ADVERTISING it says you can control it wtih a universal remote, but there is not even a remote sensor built into the damn thing!!! it is made by Phillips, but they didn't put their name on the package, the product, or the instructions, and when it comes to the Phillips support system, they refuse to acknowledge it's existance

"I purchased this product ...

By tiajuana Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 03/31/2006

I purchased this product so I don't have to switch cables between my VCR and DVD player. I hooked up my antenna, tv, vcr, and dvd player and switched it to auto mode. I turned on my vcr and the picture appeared on the tv. I turned on the DVD player and no picture but that was because I had to turn off the VCR before it would recognize the other device that was providing video. After turning off the VCR, the DVD picture appeared. I turned both VCR & DVD player off and received regular TV reception. Overall, the product is performing exactly like I expected and I'm happy that I don't have to switch cables. I used video out and not S-video.

"Great theory - 4 input ...

By Joe Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 02/09/2006

Great theory - 4 input devices and it is supposed to determine which one has been selected for output to the TV. But it often doesn't work. Instead of letting you watch TV independant of what's being recorded, it will only display on the TV the channel being recorded, not the channel you select. Or it will switch back and forth, unable to determine your choice. Bottom line - don't waste your time and suffer the frustration with this product.

"Product is junk. Mine ...

By Steve Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 02/07/2006

Product is junk. Mine contained no instructions, other than the wiring diagram shown on the cardboard package insert. I called philips after a search of their website didn't find the model. After spending 20 minutes with their Tier 1 support, they referred me to another wesbsite (www.gemini-usa.com/gemini/index.asp), wherein I couldn't find the PH61153 either. They also gave me a non-toll-free number (919-573-7863) to call if I couldn't find the product on this 2nd website. Get the picture? Someone at Philips or their consumer products branch decided that the product wasn't worth supporting - they just didn't tell the retailers that! Don't waste your money.

"I just bought the ...

By bob423 Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 01/25/2006

I just bought the PH61153. It's advertised as having 4 sets of audio, composite video, S-video inputs and one set of the same combination in output. It also has RF in and out. I bought it because my spare TV had only one RF in but had two audio and composite video in. I figured I could use the unit to produce audio and composite video from the RF in. However, is doesn't work!! The unit will not produce a composite video output from an RF input even though the documentation (such as it is) says it will. Junk. Bob

"Great features...just ...

By William Verified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 02/14/2005

Great features...just doesn't work. Contstantly hunts from input to input--even with only one input source connected. I am fairly skilled in this area, so I'm pretty sure this is not operator failure. I even read manuals, but this device is junk. Philips name is not anywhere on the device, nor is Philips name and address on the instruction sheet. What does that tell you? [...]
