These files are MS Excel files which you can consult to see if your movie file is playable on your TV.
1. Analyse with e.g. Mediainfo or G-spot your movie file (both are freeware programs).
2. With this info (audio and video codec), check in the XLS overview if this format is supported.
3. If, according to the XLS overview, this format is supported but it still does not play on your TV (*), contact your local help desk.
(*) If the format is NOT supported, you might consider converting it to a format that IS supported. There are several freeware programs for doing this. Consider www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html or www.pcfreetime.com.

It is definitely NOT fantastic, if i have to download an .xlsx file from a CLEARLY NOT SUPPORTED forum section on a NETHERLAND-ONLY site after I cannot play films on my already bought TV! That is ridiculous!
I could get a DVB-T tuner with a built-in multimedia player (w/HDMI w/MKV and w/SUBTITLE support, which is a MUST-HAVE nowadays) for like 70-80USD (thats 16-17k HUF in my country), but I spended that plus for a TV, that has a bulit-in player... OR I AM NOT?
Sorry. I just hate being in the middle of the consumption society ERA, where Philips buy some LCD panels from LG, adds a plastic bezel, a buggy SW/FW (which is based on a really flexible SW, developed by a community...so they able to add functions easily), puts on a price tag that tells us functionality but does less than as it advertised.
I am not blaming the actual people, who tries to solve the problems (if they are). I am blaming myself for my stupidity, i thought im safe to get anything else from philips than a hair-trimmer or a juice extractor.
