Could anyone else try out "Hunger Games" on BluRay?
I watched the movie yesterday. The local dimming worked ok, but i have never seen the flashing issue been that agressive. In some scenes it was almost like there was constantly lightning...
I have the same problem and it's not a 2 hour interval. I just got a new 52pfl9606, being a replacement.

It's even worse when watching content via DLNA, a reboot happens within 5-10 minutes from starting to watch content, so the DLNA function is completely unusable. I didn't have this problem when using 14.93 but .96 and .99 are terrible.
By the way the Media player overall is very weak, slow scrolling, no memory of played upto, no start from a specific time etc. Unfortunately the WIFI signal from my PS3 is very bad so using the TV is my best option.
I have not received any response for my findings regarding the local dimming issues. It would be great if I at least got some confirmation that my findings has been forwarded to the development team or something.
I tried to look for some in-movie screens on the web from THe Grey to show better what I mean with those "black-dots"-filter they use that could affect the local dimming issues.
I found this picture which have high resolution. Note that in the white area there are lots of black dots. I think this makes the local dimming engine working overload (see my last post regarding this too)
I also found a picture from Casino Royale where you see that same black-dot effect, but not as agressive:
The link to the first picture doesn't work. What are we looking for in the Casino Royale image? I can only find film grain, nothing out of the ordinary.
THe link works fine here. Try it with Google Chrome browser. Maybe our browser does not have support for .png files directly ?
You could also try right click and download the image.
And the film grain you refer to might the correct term for those black dots. But the grains are very extreme i "THe Grey". I think this could affect the local dimming.
I'm using Chrome. Clicking on the link takes me to an image with text that warns about hotlinking.
I'm not sure film grain alone is the problem. For instance the movie "300" has massive amounts of grain and that wasn't an issue on my 9706. Film grain (and analog picture noise) is so common that a firmware that doesn't handle it is close to useless. Then again, nothing would surprise me with Philips firmware.
I am not happy with this FW. I own a 32PFL9606 and use Ziggo CI+ and now I have, scince I downloaded it, occasionally disturbances in picture and sound for about 1 sec or less, on most channels, looking like the signal being to weak. But at a signal strength of 92 and a signal quality of 100% this cannot be the case. My other tv, a 32 PFL6007, does not show this behaviour and is working fine.
