TV Model: 46PFL9706h
Previous Firmware:14.101

Positive:
+ Better response from remote control commands and software itself.
+ Faster boot from standby
Negative:
- No improvement on very slow diming transition from dark scenes to bright causing strange brightness in scenes. Also reported here has strange face effects, but it happens from transitions from dark scenes to bright scenes.
- No fix for sleep timer bug, very simple bug but for me very annoing.
- Same performance in 3D having some scenes with ghost effects specially with 3D depth set to "more"(Using Side by side content).

TV Model: 58PFL9956H/12
Previous Firmware: 14.101

Positive:
+ resuming TV recording seems to be working again

Negative:
- 1) Local Dimming: gray bars on 16:9 content instead of black
- 2) Local Dimming: light flashes in dark scenes
- 3) Changing screen profiles (picture aspect) when seeing different screens on an HDMI device - tv doesn't remember last set screen profile
- 4) Resets of the TV when changing network (or router) settings (screen goes briefly on black, no sound but ambilight stays on)
- 5) Not able to watch a recording when IP-EPG server is down (which sadly is much to often)
- 6) Visible crosstalk when 3D depth set to "Normal", no crosstalk when 3D set to "Less" (but also almost no 3D experience when set to "less")
- 7) Multi view screen not working as advertised (advertised as: http://imageshack.us/a/img402/7205/multiview1.jpg but actually works like: http://imageshack.us/a/img546/9438/multiview2.jpg). Not really usefull like this.

Positive:
can't comment as i purchased TV upon release of new FW
Negative:
TV keeps loosing sound and ambilight flashes at same time, does this every 5mins approx. It does this twice that tv seems to "reboot" and then the cycle begins again.

Static crack noise through TV speakers happens occasionally, when it happens it keeps on doing it every 10 mins or so.

@Philips - Benedickte: Is Philips doing anything with this feedback? Will there be a new software update to solve the many bugs still left in the firmware or has Philips decided not to support the 2011 line any more?
