Hello,

a simple question where is the update? I see the Software file release date is from 07.10.2011 but the "autorun.upg" file is still the "Q5551-0.10.105.0"! This was my 32" 5806/K02 says to me, which can't either find a newer software on the NET.

THIS IS HUGELY DISAPPOINTING AND FRUSTRATING!

By all standards this experience is very poor!

Hi,

maybe I was to fast and the 5806 series still remains on TV550R2 (10.105) for the moment... (also the 32PFL9606 hasn't been updated to TV550R3 yet)

I find that the new version include a not so nice part of Youtube.
I can not log on to YouTube and it's a shame.
Once you get the version for download, and then there's only September. Strange.

Release Notes:

• Support of USB subtitles (exclusively for file extension srt, sub and sami).


Nice to read that srt subtitles are now supported. Big question is: how does it work?

I have placed an .avi file and an .srt file with exactly the same name on a usb stick nd I have tried to play the file. The video plays perfectly but no subtitles. I have used the subtitles menu to enable the subtitles but it does not work.

UPDATE:
Found what the problem was. The srt-files were encoded as UTF-16. When I converted these files to UTF-8 the subtitle files play flawlessly.

Thanks,
JeeWee

Hi,

does your remote has a subtitle button on the bottom? Or can you activate them via the option menu button?

It does have that button and I tried setting it to "subtitles on" but no subtitles are shown.

The Sound Bug, which is described here http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?2196-Sound-Loss-from-HDMi-Inputs-on-55PFL7606-K is still alive. (There was another Post http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?2353-Audio-problem-when-switching-on-HDMI-interfaces

It happens after watching/ playing something (PS3, BD) over HDMI and switching between internal Sound (TV Speakers) and external Sound (AVR).
Sometimes the soud of the TV is gone or crippled and it is not working on any input at all.
Only Power OFF/ ON helps and brings the sound back.

The Bug that some of "Favorite" TV stations disappear from the "Favorite" List ist still there.

I am using the internal DVB-C Receiver. I have mixed digital and analogue TV stations on the favorite list.
Every 2-3 days the analogue stations have lost their "favorite" setting.

Hi all,

I've bought the TV 47PFL7606M/08 recently and the main issue are all sw problem.
I've also created a Thread on an external forum (http://www.avmagazine.it/forum/showthread.php?t=198654) to discuss about the sw problem of this TV and I have to report that all the other people agree with the fact that they will not buy this tv if the known problems will not be fixed with a firmware update.

The following sw issue or limitation are not acceptable on such a TV:

- Not possible to play 3D files over USB
- Not possible to play 3D files from youtube/net tv
- Not possible to manage the second audio track on an mkv file
- Not possible to read subtitles embedded into mkv. (recently Philips added support for external subtitles, this is good but why you do not include also internal subtitles?)
- Most mkv's are not supported or play with artefacts.
- Poor support for multimedia files, please improve it.
- No DTS support. Why you do not support DTS audio?

Nice to have:
- Not possible to play a movie from the point where it has been stopped (e.g. you are watching a movie, then you stop the movie or you can even switch off the tv but then when you play it again the sw will allow you to start from the point where you had stopped).
- Info about the channel you are watching without completly obscure the TV channel. With the current sw if you want to see the info about the channel you are watching (e.g. title, year, actors, etc...) you press the button and the movie is obscured, you continue to hear only the audio. Many other TV supplier create a small window at the top of the TV and if you need more info you can enlarge it pressing a button.

Favourite analogue stations flag(star) lost

When I mark my analogue presets from 1 to 30 as favourites, then after a while (1 to 3 days), the favourites flag (star) is gone. Other favourites (digital presets 101 to 110) are preserved.
Issue still not solved.

Still no improvement on my main problem:

HDMI sound: sound drops occur in the following setup:
Blu-ray(Panasonic) OR Satellite Receiver(Technisat) - HDMI - 42PFL7696K02 - Toslink - PioneerAVR
-> Philips TV does not pass through HDMI sound signals properly

As well, no changes concerning my second issue:
HDMI-CEC: Technisat Satellite Receiver can control the Philips but not vice versa. It would be nice, if the Philips could at least switch the channels.

It does have that button and I tried setting it to "subtitles on" but no subtitles are shown.

Please some help on using the new feature - .srt subtitles with USB media. I also use an .avi file with .srt subs with exactly the same name in a separate folder on the USB. No subs are shown - I tried to switch on subtitled from the Subtitles button on the remote and through the Options button on the remote.

How exactly can we use .srt subtitles? Philips, please provide some information as soon as possible. I am very glad that the new update goes in line with customers demand, but it needs to work :)

All best.

Hi Thomas,
When can I expect to get FW update for my 7606T/12 in the UK? I have 500Gb USB HD and SD card installed but only benefit from "Pause" feature. BBCi would be fantastic.

Thanks,

Try with another USB.

How could this solve the problem? The USB is detected, and the avi file plays with no problem, just without subtitles.

Anyone from Philips, please reply concerning this issue.

Hi,

My experience with the new software version 000,014,076,000 is not positive.
My advice is not loading, application-XL RTL (RTL gemist) does not work at all and the support of the CI + is not working properly.
Rather a step backwards than forwards.

Hi again,

here my experience after playing around with my new TV 42PFL7606K/02 and FW 0.14.76.

- Switch between tv channels takes to long up to 4 secs.
- Sometimes some channels aren't available.
- Hbbtv hangs/takes to long to load.
- Channelsorting is really poor/annoying. Is there any PC software for that?
- No support for media from SD-Card (why only for Videociety download?).
- No support for networkbrowsing other den DLNA (why not also use SAMBA?).
- Menus are not circular.
- USB recording only with newtwork. Why?
- USB HDD for recording is formatted and only usable at tv. Why?

I think there is quite more, but im tired. So enough for now.

Thanks! I will try this as soon as I come home :-) My guess is that my subtitle file is ANSI encoded, so I will convert to UTF-8 and check again.

Are the subtitles support are only for avi files and not MKV? I made it worked on avi after converting them to uni-8 (another conversion especially for Philips .. surprise surprise), but it aint working for mkv and release notes doesnt specify supported video formats, only subtitle formats.

Hi! I've bought my 7606 3 weeks ago thinking that it would not support external subtitles from usb... i've done now the firmware update and i have support for srt!! The problem is the format of the subs... they are tiny and unsynchronized... does anybody know if i chage the format to sami or sub it will help with this problems!!??

i've got to say that i am very happy with the quality of the picture shown in hd chanels but almost everithing else is a disapointment... the net tv doesn't work that well ( the radio is always disconecting, theres no weather forecast for portugal and it hangs too often...) the hdmi arc is always going down ( its connected to a philips hts...) and the remote from my LG in the bedroom is 10 times better than the one from 7606 ( the LG costs a litle fraction of the price of my philips...).


i'm still wainting for new firmware to decide if i have done a poor choise or a really bad choise...

Yaaaaaaaaay! SRT subtitles work from USB, just have to be encoded in UTF-8. You can do this in 2 seconds with Notepad++.

This makes my TV experiance much better. And also the impression from Philips, for listening and implementing this feature (which should still be built-in in every firmware anyway :-) ).

Hello Members, recently acquired a model led tv 40pfl7606d/77, which is aimed at South America, does not have 3D, and I have the same problem that many over the subtitles.
I read on other forums confuse the similar model for Spain, for example if you have 3D, this is software? if I make upgrade will achieve similar characteristics?
Another issue would be that the history of the upgrade of my model does not specify precisely the arrangement of the subtitles, but apparently it was fixed.
As I have understood "D/77" is just the identification of the area and type of digital tuner which will oprerar, but I have seen that the differences go beyond this.
Thank you very much, greetings

My TV 42PFL7406H/12
My experience with the new firmware:
- I installed it because i had a lot of problems (1 time per evening) with a black screen telling me the program
was/is scrambled. Only way to solve it was to put the television off and on again. I use the CI+ Ziggo.
--This problem is still there, is not solved with this new release.

- Recording option to the harddrive is suddenly stopping with a black screen, nothing is possible only stop the recording.
No screen anymore. After stopping recording still black screen. Only way to reset the error is TV off and on.

With regards,
Klaas
