View Full Version : Net TV icon missing

03-14-2013, 06:37 PM
I have a 40PFL9705H smart TV which I purchased in 2011. I am trying to get the NetTV working. I am able to connect to the internet successfully within network settings. However my problem is there is no NetTV icon on the Home screen. I have installed the latest software from the support website today without success. I have tried a reinstall and factory reset, which has made no difference. Also when I try to go into the Help section, all that shows is a ? (questionmark). Any help on these problems would be appreciated.

For ? issue:
- Format USB stick with FAT
- create Folder "Upgrades"
- copy the following file into that Folder: http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/4/40pfl9705h_12/46pfl9705h_12_mus_eng.upg
- start TV, wait 3 minutes
- plugin USB stick
- go to TV configuration - outer right (update)
- Chose local update
- then you can install the help file

The ? should be gone.

Hi, thank you for you quick response,
I found that software and followed the process you said.
Within local Update I got the msg
"You are trying to programme a software older than or equal to the current one, are you sure you want to continue?"
Is it okay to continue? The TV will still work afterwards - :-)

Great I'll give it a go, is there an equivalent .upg file for the NetTv software. I've no idea why it isn't on the TV.

That worked perfectly for the Help application. Thank you very much. You really know your stuff.

Hello, I still have the original issue where the NetTv icon is missing from the Home screen. Is there a particular piece of software in the software library (mentioned earlier in this Topic by Toengel) that I can re-install for the Nettv icon to appear.
