View Full Version : NetTV Opera web browser issue

01-03-2012, 01:39 PM
I want to report an issue I encountered with NetTV's Opera web browser on my 52PFL9606 running the latest FW
When trying to access URL of the following type www.xxxx.com/~yyyy/zzzz/ the browser does nothing. I press "go" screen button but browser does not react in anyway. If I try to access the same URL www.xxxx.com, but without "~yyyy/zzzz/" there is no problem. There is no error message or any kind of hint what is going on. Any ideas?

PS. I couldn't fint a relevant topic to post this issue, so if moderators find a proper place for it it will be good to move it.

I'm developing applications for NetTV and once couldn't get a page to load.

It occured, that before visiting any webpage, device asks philips servers for permission.
I couldn't make my device visit a page hosted on my machine (it wouldn't accept IP address as URL).
As far as I can remember there was also a problem with some characters in URL, but this one I'm not 100% sure.

Maybe your problem has something to do with this "feature"?

I know I didn't answer your question directly, but hope I have pointed you in a good direction.

Thank you! It is certainly a hint what might be the problem. I hope somebody from Philips answers, but it looks that is not the purpose of this forum....

Thank you Thomas!
It is good to know that somebody is at least paying attention to what we write here.
Can you please have a look and present the issue described in following threads to Philips support:

This is very annoying defect and it seem to be affecting the TOP models of company. I fully understand that probably that is generic flaw of panels used, but we need to know Philips official opinion!
Thank you for your time here!

Best regards,

i checked the behavior and i can not see any Issues in this.
It just works...
If it does not for you, please create a Video showing whats happening on your TV.

Double checked it - not working, the browser does not even try to resolve the domain name. When I press "Go"(arrow on the roght) I am returned back to enter URL line with cursor blinking. I created a video(in which actually is nothing to see), but mp4 is not among the valid file extension for this forum attachments. I don't have Youtube account to share the video.

PS. Can you please comment on the DSE issue that I gave you links to above? If you can not speak about it in public, just say that you can not comment, but give us a sign you are aware of our writings.

I have made some checks - so issue IS with authorisation. I am using basic auth. and TV browser just does not know how to present the authorisation dialog. After I removed user/pass requirements from .htaccess, leaving only IP access list ON I am able to successfully view the web page.
Thank you for your time Thomas!
