hi,

steps:
1. turn automatic backlight option on (any value e.g. best picture, best power etc.)
2. watch a movie from a player/pc over hdmi (without turning PC mode on)

result: the backlight on the display increases&decreases smoothly and repeatedly (the adjustment being extremely visible and stressing the eyes of the user)

expected: same behavior as on TV channel watch, that is no stress on the user eye (no visible smooth adjustment of the backlight).

regards,
Mike

PS1: fw version is 2.18, latest
PS2: this is an extremely embarrassing issue that could eventually turn into a medical lawsuit...how could possibly Philips put such a problem into a product sold on the market?!
PS3: there are more bugs where this came from, stay tuned PHILIPS customers! and don't worry, forum admins might erase the information but you will be able to find it, just google 32pfl4606 :)
