Please share your experiences with this new SW version here in this topic. Channeling your input will make it easier for users to search and find relevant info.
- Due to the global IT structure, there might be a delay in the uploading/synchronising of new SW releases (and their release notes). Please, have a little patience if you cannot immediately see the new files on the support web pages and try 1 or 2 days later.
- IMPORTANT: After upgrading your TV, it is necessary to perform a "cold start": after the TV is running again (after the update), shut down the TV, wait 2 minutes (till all components are shut down), unplug the TV from the mains (pull power cord) for a few minutes before starting again.

FW 14.101 and Zenderupdate
Just installed FW 14.101. Was in doubt when I read the message after installation, just Standby or really off and on again. No reference to "cold start" or a better description of what you want us to do ....... You might want to address this in the software for 14.102 and future updates.
This reminds me of a recent notification from Ziggo (our cable "provider") about a pending "Zenderupdate" which would be installed if I would put my TV (32PFL9696H/12) in standby. At that time we had problems with the sound (interruptions and occasionally the TV went into standby and back again), but there seemed to be no change, even after a full night in standby. Can anyone tell me what these updates are for ? How can you see whether these have been executed / completed ??
Thanks and regards - lange
PS - We still have these interruptions in the sound. Any ideas how to solve this ??
Please give us a Firmware that works!!!!
Version 101, is not a better firmware release then the 99 or 98 version. Best firmware release was 98 too bad of bad local dimming issue.
Some things I have noticed:
The colors are not as vivid, and there seems to be a haze over the screen. Like dirty screen effect all over the picture.
My TV still turns off at random moments.
Still the Format settings does not work when turning the TV on.
And with 101, you need to turn the brightness down to below 50 for having corners in deep black
The Local dimming is slow, you see that after a scene change, the entire screen dims or adds more light to it.
Very annoying and very frustating that a TV this price, these specs have this minor issues.
I think I am going to call Philips for this, I have this TV now for a year, still no fix for my issues.
