I was ask what the message "Updating Bolt-on board" means during the updating process of a 9000 series device. Could you please enlighten us? This message does not appear for a 7000 and below series device...

Bolt-on Boards are additional Modules besides the Mainboard.

Software has been removed for no know reasons. Like JGL told in an earlier forumpost that was closed I also have the same issues as he does:

Power toggle the TV with the powerswitch sometimes results in unable to power on TV for several minutes.
WLAN looses connection if used for a long time.
TV Reboots itself occasionally. (happened one time with 038.5, never happend with 22-08-2011 software)

Most important:
Switching HDMI inputs sometimes result in very strange noise, like Alvin from the Chipmunks. Restarting the TV set solves this issue.

Minor issue:
TV always sends 110ms audiodelay to AV-Receiver. Even if I choose Game mode.

where was the software removed? I can still find them.

Regarding the audiodelay - you can switch it off seperately...

You did not get the issue. I have HDMI Auto lipsync on. But the TV sends a delay of 110ms to the receiver. If I select Game mode the delay has to reduce to 30 maybe 40 ms. It does not do this, it stays on 110ms. My Receiver is capable of going until 300ms so it is not a receiver issue.

The software of the TV must send different lipsync delays. Game mode has less delay than with all picture enhancers on.

BTW software is from 22-08-2011 on the Dutch Philips website.
