Hi,

my suggestion is to have a setup-menu, where I can chose some short-cuts for the ok-button and the navigation buttons around the ok-button since these buttons are without any funktion while watching tv.

Maybe I want the "sleep timer" on the ok-button. Someone else prefer the teletext on the ok-button the next customer prefer NetTV on the ok button and so on. The same for the navigation buttons and the blue button (as far a I see, the blue-button is also without function while watching tv).

So it will be the best to create a possibility to customize the tv by choosing some short-cuts for ok and navigation in tv-mode (“watch tv”). And there are a lot of functions that someone may will access by only one key hit:
- sleep timer
- video text
- program guide
- channel listing
- Net-TV (main page or best will be to have the possibility to choose a special service e.g. a alternative tv-program-guide instead of (IP)-EPG or any preferd news-page and so on)
- devices from the home menu (Browse USB, DVD-Player, Scenea, etc.)
- "What's on"
- subtitels
- smart picture
- smart sound
- ambilight on/off
- jump to a special tv channel
- audio language
- headphone volume up/down (the headphone volume is awful deep in the config menu :mad:)

Dear bta,

Your idea has been forwarded to the responsible people in product development. They answered that they like the idea and that they will consider it for future products. Thanks very much for your input.

Hi,

I think bta and many other like to hear, that the customization will be available for the 2010 models, too... ;)

Great idea, bta.
And great answer, Philips, but only if you referred to old models too

Hi NetTVMod,

its ok if I a future model will find the way in my living room as valutation for my ideas ;-)

But seriously, I understand that some ideas will only be implemented to future models. But maybe it will be a idea to honor the best forum idea once a year with one of your products (e.g. new or higher tv model, a bd player, a soundbar and so on - I think there is a broad portfolio.

Here is an other "high end" idea: Perhaps it will be possible to "upgrade" a older model by purchasing some software components. But this means that the main SW is bug free and maybe I will pay for an App called "MenuCustomization" that is avaliable for my tv in oder to keep it up to date.

Regards

Still asking why Philips lost credibility on TV market ?

Every software maker release a product and make it 'living'. With bug correction of course, but not only. Functionnalities are continuously added/fixed/modified simply because one day you have to launch something and 'everything' cannot be written in one day.

Don't understand this sado-maso attitude. Ton of complaints everywhere for stupid functions easily fixed.

Hi,

most companies add features in new releases / new series - never to old ones. Why should someone buy a new TV if his old could be easily updated with features of the new series?

That's how the world goes...

I agree... :p with one exception: when a function is removed after I bought the product (the Widget function on the blue button in our case), it would be very reasonable to expect a new function in its place.

May I suggest the function I'm missing most: a short list with all connected devices and internal tuners, complete with "one push swap", like Alt-Tab in windows. :cool:

I can understand that some features or improvements, should be considered for future product lines... but I can NOT understand that some basic or easy improvements could not be incorpored to actual products, with firmware updates... So, can I understand that you're saying that we must not be waiting for any software updates, other than bug corrections??? (sincerely, tv software is full of bugs, and with a great space for improvements... only if I had kwnon this before buying my philips tv, maybe I had purchased another brand)

Great answer, AndresG: I fully agree with you!
