I still think its a problem of the FW. I will try to reinstall the current FW maybe something got wrong?
Reflashing the FW is not possible... :-( At least not the updating way...
you can try to reflash via downgrade method...
My easylink trouble is somehow fixed... I resetted the TV Multiple times. Without reflashing! Now Easylink it currently working as it should. But how long?!?

But im Still annoyed of the Sound issue in combination with my AMP and HDMI ARC. I have still that sound drops with all Dolby Digital 5.1 Sources when they are played over my AMP.
Its also there with streams from Videociety which are in "Dolby Digital 5.1". Thats so annoying to watch Movies with 5.1 Dolby over the internal Speaker while having a nice AMP connected to the TV.
I applied this latest version. Only thing I noticed is that USB recording on external HD runs smoother then it justed to do.
What has not been fixed is the channel update, which doesn't work. During a phone call with Philips, a few months ago, I was told that this would be fixed in the next update.
Now, for every new channel, I have to do a complete install (and loose my favorites). Funny, my Sony Bravia doesn't need to install a channel, you can just choose any channel....
I still have a lot of reboots, after having used Net-tv.
The same to me. About 70% of the inital Easylink-handshakes are working, but for 30% I have to switch on/of the Soundbar (HTS7111 on 55PFL7606K/02). Furthermore, I have the same error-message described by bluevoice, but the system is working afterwards. Perhaps the new standby-software will improve the situation, I'll try this in a few weeks.

That thread is only for technical feedback and template have to be used.
The same for me. My tv always reboots after having used Net-tv (or Smart TV, I've got a 37PFL7606), specifically when I finished watching video ("Uitzending Gemist", "RTL XL", "NOS Journaal" ect.) and return to the Home menu. I don't have any issues with Easylink, but is an update of the Standby Software a possible solution for this situation too? My tv runs the latest firmware and switching EasyLink off has no effect on this behaviour.

but i like the TV, its features, non glossy, big, ambilight, 3d easy (Polarization). but i simply cant live with such a buggy device! --> I have no choice!
I have 3 Easylink devices (AMP,RaspBerry,PS3) and 2 Not Easylink devices (Unitimedia HD Recorder and HDMI cable which is sometimes attached to a notebook).

I now resetet the TV again(its so annoying). Turned to standby. wait. pulled the power cord. wait. put the powercord back in. wait.
than I turned the TV on, configured the TV and copied back the channel list. (no devices in home menu, but all in standby and connected)
than i turnd the tv back to standby. Started my ps3, the tv turns on and switches to HDMI 3. I can also see the PS3 in the home menu again.
i did the same with the raspberry and my amp. All worked after the reset.
So all easylink devices are currently back in the "Home" menu. But how long?
I hate my PFL7606 for this 3 big troubles:
1. Built-in player can not display cyrillic subtutles. WHY? Why are you made TV for sales in RUSSIA (and others) without cyrillic subtitles support?!
2. Rewind works with only one speed now. There were some speeds earlier in previous firmwares. Why it moved away?
3. GHOSTING* is simply AWFUL in 3D when plays by TV buitl-in player!!! PLEASE, do something with it!!! I want to see 3D normally!
*Crosstalk (or image ghosting) in 3D mode
Since my last post it happend again 2x. that all Easylink devices got lost after standby. It seems somehow its related to the HDMI device which was enabled before I turned off the TV.

After that all Easylink devices are back in the homemenu and working as they should (Except of the Digital Audio Routing issue to the AMP, which Philips is not cappable to ever fix it).
by the way.
In the next year a cable company in parts of Germany will broadcast all FreeTV stations over DVB-C without encryption. This means that many people can watch digital TV without a special decryption module or Receiver. They can simple use the TVs integrated DVB-C module. I expect that allot more people will than see the that Digital Audio is not properly working over their AMPs.
I also have a problem with Easylink. I have a 47pfl7656.
I bought a HTL 5120. When turning thon sometimes it works. But often the TV turns on and also the Soundbar but then there is no sound. I have to powercycle the Soundbar 1 or 2 time before I get sound from it. Is there a solution for this problem?
Why Why Why???
hi, i`m asked them this question several time BUT! no one answered me to!!!
