On receipt of my new TV I updated the software with release Q5551 0.10.105.0 dated 2 Sep 11 and this eradicated the problems of audio drop-out on switching between channels after which all appeared to be working well. Subsequently, another release of software (Q5551 0.14.88.0 dated 14 Nov 11) became available and once again I updated the TV software. Subsequently, I am experiencing problems that did not exist with the previous software update (Q5551 0.10.105.0).

The problems are outlined thus:

1. TV Cold Start (Switched off at power source). Apply mains power to TV, then use either the "Standby" button or "Home" button on Remote control to switch on the TV. Result - audio and video drop-out after approx 4 seconds, for approx 2 seconds then both are restored. Subsequent switching between TV channels works OK.

2. Warm Start (TV in Standby mode). Switch on TV by using either the "Standby" button or the "Home" button on the Remote control and all works OK.

3. Put TV into "Standby" mode after viewing TV and then, before TV has settled in "Standby" mode - which takes several seconds, press the "Standby" button on the Remote Control to reactivate the TV. Result - immediate audio and video, immediately followed by audio and video drop out, followed by restoration of audio and video for a few seconds and then another brief drop-out of both audio and video before it settles down to constant audio and video.

All of the above appear to be the result of the latest software upgrade dated 14 Nov 2011.

The software relates to the TV 32PFL7606 T/12. Don't get me wrong this is a fantastic TV and I am very very happy with it save for the most recent software update which I expect to be resolved in the near future. The TV is connected to the roof antenna feed via a TV amp in the loft - there is a TV socket in every room!! The current issue would not prevent me from recommending this TV to others.

Where did you find 14.88 version? I can see only 14.84.

Im lending your thread, i have just updated my 46pfl6606t with the 0.14.88.0 software. and it works good most of the times.
But from time to time when changing channels it seems like the tv stops responding. only a black screen is shown for several seconds (seems like the tv is rebooting during this time)
When it comes back everything works just as before until it happens again a few days later.
Sometimes this can happen several times per day if youre frequently changing channels.
