favourite presets (star) lost
When I mark my analogue presets from 1 to 30 as favourites, then after a while (1 or 2 days), the favourites mark (star) is gone. Other favourites (digital presets 101 to 110) are preserved. When using the TV, I always display the list of the favourites.
This is also a problem in the previous firmware.
AC3 sound drops TV over HDMI to receiver
Posted this also in thread of an older firmware. The problems as reported here are with the 0.10.105.0 FW.
I am experiencing many sound drops when using TV audio over HDMI ARC to a Marantz SR7005. Similar issues are reported many times before. It looks like it is solved for the xxx5 2010 line by a FW upgrade in april. So why do I have to sound drops on my new 42PDL7906?
Some additional information:
Sound drop occurs on DVB-C channels having audio in AC-3. (The ZIGGO HD channels mostly)
Sound drops do not occur (at least not observed) on DVB-C channels having audio in MPEG-1 layer2 (mp2) (The ZIGGO SD channels)
frequency of drops on HD channels is around 1 drop per 1-3 seconds.
No drops when audio is routed to the TV speakers.
Philips: Please get this solved in FW asap or give me any other advice to get this sorted out.
PS: Also the HDMI switching - no sound (or often distorted sound) problem bugs me!
