My 40pfl8007 keeps on switching itself on... really strange behaviour!

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dxU2GJ4skU for a full video.

Pulled the power cord now to switch it off.
Latest software, didn't see it happen before the update (updated it last week).

Hi will,

just watched your video - relay strange.
My TV set has an option to search for new channels when it's in standby. I assume this is also in your 2012 set. Perhaps there is a major bug in this functionality.
I switched this function off because of other reasons, but maybe you can try this, if your "automatic on feature" still persists.

Update: Technorep (Philips) came by for a repair.
Updated the software to a newer (unreleased) version and restored factory settings.

Most probable cause: automatic channel update crashed.
