Well than, no now/next function when zapping. Also not on the 2010 models. MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!

"Philips offers no support for this software." WTF!
We have to accept that have been fooled by Philips.
We swallowed the nice advertising give our money and got a good hardware and a useless software. That's it!
The only hope is that some very clever programmers take their time to develop a usable software to this TV. I would gladly donate money for a programmer who can present a usable, well designed, functional user interface for this TV.
I just read a lot today on this forum, back to 2010. The problems are almost the same or even worst: much more problems appeared !!! So it is just time wasting to beg for help from these ignorant, double-faced Philips moderators. They are just moderators, they are not able to take a decision and they are not interested to give us support at all !!!
This is the black and white reality !!!
I experience the same on cinema gold t.v.

As far as I can see it has nothing to do with specific use of Net TV.
Must be totaly rotten firmware which I suppose will never be fixed.
Wish I could help you...and myself..but I can't.
I suggest get your tv back to the shop while you still can and try for a refund.
Philips is distroying its name and reputation here,and even that seems to go unnoticed.
Unbelieveable but true.
Well, i would do it but it's not possible cause of encryption of the firmware. A few parts are open source but not the whole firmware. No chance until philips makes the complete firmware open source.

Especially now the TV branch of Philips is going to Taiwan. :rolleyes:
Thomas, Mark, anyone form Philips can you just give us a status about solving the problems (or not) in percentages?
You know the biggest issues so it would be nice to have these in the main screen of the forum so everyone can see whats going on without frustrating each other.
Firmware 14.96 should be available for download by now (at least the new files are on the servers): http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...s-(2011-models)
Mmmm? I don't see any bugs or issues from all the post in this topic being solved in the changelog. Or am I missing something?
New Firmware version 000.014.096.000?
The autorun.upg inside the zipfile (42pfl7606k_02_fus_deu.zip) from http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/d...=Link_Software has modification date 23.01.2012 17:37!
With me is the change in date 02/17/2012 13:25 clock
on a linux system, which gets its time via ntp, after a fresh download and unzip "ls -la" shows:

The link if you reach the page first always gave me the old firmware. You have to select some other language file in the pull-down menue and then your language again. This gave me the recent version.
the sound drop bug with fw 14.96 and CI+ modul still exists
So it's the middle of April 2012 now. My 42PFL7606K still shuts off randomly, already 4x today. Three times I had to turn it on again by myself. The fourth time it did a crackling sound and came back by its own. It's almost like a dying patient fighting death.
Actually I even hope it dies so I have an excuse to buy a new one. And believe me, it won't be a Philips again, that's for sure.
