    I really sympathize with you jbc0smith.
    I am still quite amazed how Philips / TPVision can think it is acceptable to have a TV with so many faults after 1 year of updates!

    Anyway, try turning...

    Gravity is a 2K HD film - I seem to remember something about these TVs not playing 2K/4K HD files.

    But, back to the Simpsons;

  4. Playing a file - doesn't work as expected

    I'm trying to get some reference MPEG4 files so we can test PNM and other functionality of TV.

    I found a file on a website called h264info. The URL is http://www.h264info.com/?page_id=20

    Good file to try

    Go to h264info here.
    Select the 2nd file "The Simpsons Movie - 1080p Trailer" and download it. It's 140Mb and 2 mins long.

    When I play this on my 6188 TV (with latest 173.60 FW) I get no sound...
  7. Why am I not surprised nothing has changed?

    For a laugh I have installed 173.60 firmware and I cannot see any improvement.:(:mad::confused::(

    I can get my 2013 TV working with Synlogy NAS "media player" application.

    You paid 700 Euros for a 4K TV which can't do 4K??? :confused:
    (No matter how hard I look in the documentation I can't see the magic words "HEVC" or "H.265")

    None of those TVs are available in...

    Unfortunately people have raised calls with Philips support at least 1/2 year ago now, and we still have fundamental issues with audio lag, slow menus, poor media player etc... There is no evidence...

    If you look at the 2013 TV forum you will see a lot of bugs, and they still exist a year later. I used to hope that the good people at TPV/Philips would get around to fixing the bugs. However,...

    Sometimes I think better support is given on the non-English parts of this forum!

    I don't think the TV is tested in the UK at all.

  15. No hope.

    I don't believe this! :(

    I have been patient - it's nearly a year that I've had this 6xx8 TV and the only bug I can think that has been fixed in that time is the 24Hz Ambilight bug.
    I have pasted...

    Hi RobFoxx,

    Sorry to see nobody has replied to you yet. I think most TPVision/Philips owners have given up on this forum and the company because we can report problems yet they never get fixed.

    Thank you Ina for your response - most informative.

    I thought using a black screen would be good because a) it is constant / static and b) it should use the lowest amount of power.

    The common usage of 'TBC' means 'to be confirmed'.

    Lots of words, but no action!

    Sorry, maybe I shouldn't have expected the moderators to understand all technical issues. So, to explain, DVB-T/DVB-T2 is what UK Freeview uses and DVB-S/DVB-S2 is what is used on the ASTRA2...
