I have downloaded the new update of 8/12/2011 (000.140.044.000) for my LED TV 32PFL9705H/12 from the dutch Philips support page. According to the update instruction, I unzipped the file and copied the autorun.upg file to my USB-stick. If I try to update the TV software from the USB stick, I got the error message that the USB-stick contains no readable files, so does not start the update. If I check the downloaded zip file 000.140.044.000 the archive contains an autorun.upg dated 16-8-2011. This date is simular to the autorun.upg (as well dated 16/8/2011) that is packed in the zipfile of the former software release 000.140.040.000 (24-8-2011).
Is this causing the update problem? Does the zip file contain a incorrect (old) version of autorun.upg ?
I expect that the autorun.upg will have a newer creation date.
I think the autorun.upg in the dutch zippack is wrong because I downloaded the zipfile from the UK support page and that zippack contains an autorun.upg dated 21-11-2011. Please Philips can you include the correct version in the dutch zippack?

Have you got the USB key FAT32 or NTFS formatted?

You're right Newbe, many files haven't been updated yet, including all the Dutch files for the 9705H family, as well as the other language files for the 32PFL9705H. The 9705K family has been fully updated though.

Hi,

the updates should be available on the download server - however, the websites are not up to date...

So if you download the ZIP it should contain the new firmware... just try...

No Alex, this time even the server isn't up to date... I got them directly from there, not using the website.

Hi Freddy,

32pfl9705k_02_fus_nld.zip (http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/32pfl9705k_02_fus_nld.zip) 08-Dec-2011 07:19 71M

Maybe some kind of proxy shows the old ones...

Hi Alex,

thanks for looking into it, but as I said...


The 9705K family has been fully updated though. ;)

The 9705H hasn't.

I could see the zip file 32pfl9705h_12_fus_nld.zip 08-Dec-2011 as well, but in the zipfile itself, the autorun.upg was faulty. In this sofware packadge they seem to include the former version of August. This evening I downloaded the file again, now it looks that they did corrected it. The autorun.upg is now dated 21-11-2011.

Hi Toengel,

Same problem here for my PFL8605, on the Philips server the suggestion is made the new version was downloaded but inside the dutch ZIP (40pfl8605h_12_fus_nld.zip) still the old version upg file is present. The English version is updated now. Philips why ????

Hi,

from my point of view this is some kind of "proxy server issue" - somewhere in between you and the Philips server the old file is cached (you can also try to empty your browser cache). Since you never downloaded the english file (it's the same file with a different name - the firmware is multilingual), you get the 140.44...

Hi Toengel,

Think you are right, I downloaded the English 140.044 version and will try to install it tonight.
Is there a work around to tackle this proxy problem (emptying the browser cache obviously did not work) ?

Thanks already.

Hi,

I didn't find out yet - I also had this in the past many times...
