View Full Version : Sleep timer?

10-22-2010, 01:36 AM
Hi all,

Am I the only one thinking that the sleep timer is buried inside the menus?
Why not be made available to any shortcut, like the eco menu that turns up with the green button?
It is an eco feature after all, isn't it?

Hello Petasis,
your are not alone my friend,,, why not the inner directional buttons,, around OK button does not have a shortcut?.. like all the phones have...
I have a Sony and the sleep timer starts from 30 min and up. also burried in the menu's... that's why did not wanted Sony again..and others..., on my Philips 32PFL7605 I have forgot to consider it because Iwas fascinated of all others: AmbiLight, NetTv..and so...
hey father Philips ...are you listening? ..help us///

all the best

I agree to petasis that the "green-button" is really a good position for the sleep timer.

But one step ahead, my suggestion is to have a setup-menu, where I can chose some short-cuts for the ok-button and the navigation buttons around the ok-button.

Maybe I want the "sleep timer" on the ok-button. Someone else prefer the video-text on the ok-button the next customer prefer NetTV on the ok button and so on. The same for the navigation buttons and the blue button (as far a I see, the blue-button is also free).

So it will be the best to create a possibility to customize the tv by choosing some short-cuts for ok and navigation in tv-mode (“watch tv”). And there are a lot of functions that someone may will access by the hit of only one key:
- sleep timer
- video text
- program guide
- channel listing
- Net-TV (main page or best will be to have the possibility to choose a special service e.g. a alternative tv-program-guide instead of (IP)-EPG or any preferd news-page and so on)
- devices from the home menu (Browse USB, DVD-Player, Scenea, etc.)
- "What's on" (compare the posts in http://www.supportforum.philips.com/showthread.php?816-Please-add-a-now-next-feature-in-TV-mode)
- subtitels
- smart picture
- smart sound
