View Full Version : Write Error

02-20-2012, 01:42 PM

i often get an error message "Fehler beim Schreiben" after i have switched the channel.
Write test after formatting the hdd is ok. I think, that the problem is that Philips want´s 30MB/s write speed, but on an USB2.0-Port more than "real" 25MB/s is nearly impossible. I´ve tried:
USB2.0-Case with SATAII-HDD
USB3.0-Case with SATAII-HDD
USB3.0-Case with SSD
Is there a possibility to solve the problem?

TV is a 42PFL7606K and i use DVB-C only. FW is The HDD´s are Kingston HyperMax 3.0 SSD, Seagate External Portable Drive (USB2.0) and a CnMemory Spaceloop USB3.0 Case with a Seagate 320GB SataII HDD
The error message is shown sometimes after I switch from one channel to another.

the Message appears due to the High load on CPU during channel switch.
However the TV does continue to Record after some ms.
We are checking if we can have any improvements here.

same issue here with 58PFL9956. The message shows up several times inside one TV session. Therefore it is very annoying.

FW: 014.096
HDD: Seagate Expansion Portable, USB 2.0

Some additional information:
I can't access the USB-Device anymore after getting the error-message described bei User Muehle.
That means, I cannot watch movies recorded to it or even have a look at its content.
The TV seems to loose the Connection to the HDD.

There are two ways to make the drive accessible again:
1. Restart the TV
2. Program a recording

Could you please give me some Feedback about Solving-Status?

Thank You,

Hello Thomas,

I try to access the HDD via:
Home-Menue --> Program Guide --> Recordings

Hi Thomas,

It works al little bit better now, but sometimes the message still appears.

One of my customers got this issue too. Would be nice if we can find a workaround on this. https://imagicon.info/cat/12-19/vbsmile.png

i saw that happen if i have done "a lot" on my tv, so watched tv, used nettv, switched volume lots of times.
it seems that the more cpu power is used, the better are the chances to see such kind of problems.
give it a try, turn the set on wait 10 minutes, just stay on the channel and volume, i expect to see no problems at all.

The problem only appears when switching channels.

The problem only appears when switching channels.
Would echo. It is.

CPU load (power) as mentioned from a_Tom may be another issue and thread.
I thought this thread is about the timing and write error message when changing channels.

Nothing from Philips about that ?

Get the same err too with my brand new Philips 42PFL7606H!

please update first to FW 14.98 - then try again.


06-19-2012, 06:30 PM
... provided there in German, worth to be bookmarked :

However, as seen from other posts about the write error. The update will not help getting rid of that failure.

I assume Philips will never reply to this issue, cause in their opinion it's a feature and no failure ?

Means, if the *write error* message appears it indicates that the USB HD is still there and has not got stolen ? :cool:

Problem definitely exists on FW 14.98, it is the only firmware I have ever had and get Write Error messages about every second day when changing channels, usually after being on a channel for a long time (+1hr).
