Model Directory

Model Number Survey

The following table is the beginning of a comprehensive list of Philips TV receivers produced during the period under consideration by this site.  Details of additional sets will be added as I discover them (Many thanks to Glyn for starting me off with this information).

If you are aware of any sets that are missing from my list please email me (I especially need G9 and G11 info).

I understand that the method of decoding Philips model numbers is as follows:

County of Production    CRT Size      Decoder Origin    Model Number
G                                    25                 K                           500

Above example is a British produced 25″ CRT Kleur (Colour) set Model Number 500.  The K (Kleur) suggests the decoder was designed in Holland. So what does C stand for?  Is it  Colour designed in the UK?  If you know please advise.
