I just purchased a phillips home entertainment system (1055 D) w/ DVD player and am having a couple of problems.
(1) my subwoofer does not seem to work. now this may just be a misunderstanding on my part re: subwoofers, but it seems to me that it should vibrate or something. i do not hear hardly any bass and it just seems to sit there doing nothing, not even vibrating. should I return it? the green light comes on indicating that it is connected correctly, but changing the phase amount from 0 to 180 degrees and vice versa and messing with the volume amount seems to do no good. when i set the level on the subwoofer all i heard was some static, and not much of that. plus the static seemed to come from the center speaker, so I'm confused.
(2) there does not seem to be a hookup for a game system. there are inputs for the folowing: TV, VCR, and CDR [which is currently being used by my DirectTV receiver]. I do not have the VCR hooked up through the input, although the VCR is connected through the Direct TV receiver.
(3) when i hooked the PS2 up through the VCR connection, I got sound, but no picture. oh yeah, the S video cord is connected from the TV to the h/e receiver. the old a/v connection directly from the PS2 to the TV is now taken up with the a/v connection from the h/e receiver to the TV. I cannot figure out why the picture is not coming on for the ps2 game, although I am receiving sound. switching the tv from cable source to video source also results in no picture.
I sent these questions to Phillips through their support/email system, but have heard nothing yet. I really need to know what I should do about that subwoofer, because maybe they all perform like this (i.e. i'm not supposed to hear anything b/c the tone is too low or something)
