Default Philips 663A combined radio/television 1948

Hi all,

Currently restoring the above set which so far has been very successful. Power supply chassis completed and a healthy looking raster has been obtained.

No sign of any signals however. The aerial input is a twin feeder arrangement via a two pin socket. I have connected my Aurora via the matched balum type adaptor shown which I have used on another Philips set of this era.

Before I delve deeply into the front end and risk a wild goose chase could any kind soul confirm this is indeed a suitable way of connecting the set?

Probing around V2 frequently changer (ECH35) will produce noise and white spots on the raster, suggesting the forward stages are functioning to a degree. HT appears to be perfectly adequate!
