I have the philips 42PFL7666 and i recently found the FW 0.14.95.0 firmware. On the forum i see that this firmware is for the 8000, 9000 and 21:9 series (2011 models). I installed it before i read this topic. Should this be a problem, and if not, why isn't this communicated with the rest on this forum and what are the improvements?

I can't see any improvements and i am still having the problem of the audio drops on nederland 1,2 and 3 HD on my dolby digital reciever with optical cable connected.

Really?

May I suggest you to install the right firmware on your TV model?

Maybe is the same as the previous installed. In case the TV will display that "upgrade is not necessary".

In this way you could be sure that the upgrade procedure was respected.

@ dershortyy. Thank you. I didn't see this before. I must look harder. ;)
@ Nettle. Ofcourse i don't install firmware's that isn't meant for my TV. But this firmware was on the supportsite for the 42PFL7666. And because i have problems of audio drops i tryed this firmware.

My TV came with the 14.93 but hat the same problem. Contacted philips for this problem and they sent my a service monteur (Don't know it how to say it in english.). He said it is a known problem that needed to be fixed in firmware, but it is not a priority for philips. They still act like the don't know what it is and they hear it for the first time. I also connected my media center PC where i can watch nederland 1,2 and 3 in HD with dolby digital and this doesn't give me any problem. See

I can switch to MPEG2 audio stream, but then i can't watch MKV which i play with the TV in dolby digital stream
