Negative:
- add an option to make the volume of the headphones directly adjustable through the remote control (ie. by the volume button, not by a setting placed in some nested menu). You have already implemented it on this (http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?2223-Important-Bugs-which-need-to-be-fixed-in-2010-firmware-%28TV550R1%29) firmware in 2011

Hi Smdb,

Thank you for posting your feedback.

Rather than posting multiple time because your posts are moderated, perhaps just edit your existing post instead. This also helps with the overview.

I have merged your new posts with your existing one.

Best regards,
Ina

Positive:

Negative:
- it would seem slowed the execution of the various menus, especially coming into Smart TV
- sometimes commands are not executed or are very slow and you have to press the same button n-times before the command is accepted by the television (I have already installed the software version 99.0.0.0 Standby on my TV)
- in EPG guide (entering pushing INFO key on remote control) if I select a program using arrows keys and then pushing "OK" button the channel isn't change anyway
- mistranslation of "AROUND" in Italian EPG guide: instead of "INTORNO" should be translated with "ATTUALE" or "IN ONDA"
- in the EPG guide (entering with the INFO key) you can not change the channel by highlighting the program and pressing OK
- the SCREENDREAM application in SmartTV doesn't work

- Smart TV : impossible to register online on the TV itself. The process ask to follow the instructions in the email received and to finish the registration online on the TV itself but it does not work : SmartTV systematicaly says something is missing in the process and proposes to do it later. (for completeness, I add that I've registered the product from PC, but if I go into Smart TV it tells me that the product still requires registration)

Previous Firmware: 00.97

Positive:
+ Seems to have fixed an issue where pressing the 'info' button was occasionally causing the TV to turn off

Negative:
- Add live preview of current channel in EPG.
This is an expected feature in a freeview TV and it's bad UI design not to have one! You can see the current channel playing when you access Philips Smart TV so its a no brainier to have something similar for the programme guide as well.

TV Model:40PFL5507H/12
Previous Firmware:0.97

Negative:
- [Edit: 21 aug 2013] Unfortunately my positive verdict was premature. Today my tv showed all channels and 'forgot' I have selected to display the fav list. I think I'm about to give up on Philips tv's. I'd rather spent more on something that just works.

Positive:
+ At last the favorites channel list is workable and stable. In 0.97 the TV would regularly jump back to all channels when a favorites list was selected. And 0.97 had some bugs when it came to reordering the list. I use the fav list to maintain a reordered selection of unencrypted DVB-C channels (not using a CI+ or mediabox - upc.nl). A working fav list is the only way to separate encrypted and unencrypted channels. Would be great if a future firmware would be able to detect all unencrypted channels.
