    A bit late with answering you but had no time to concern myself with the tv and forum earlier. I have the 55PFL8008.
    Yesterday I measured near black with full and windowed patterns with the dynamic...

    Watch Alien or 2001 and see what happens.

    I also have a projector on which I do most of my movie watching. But in summer I tend to use the tv as well for watching movies.

    The tv is in the...

    What I have seen when I measured the tv is this:

    With the dynamic backlight turned on in standard mode:

    Sorry but that's not true. You do end up with a dim mush and mess as you call it in low APL scenes. The native contrast of the panel and the pushing of contrast by the dynamic backlight in low APL...

    Nope, still the same, which does not surprise me anymore. The issue with the dynamic backlight was reported 6 (!) months ago for the first time. Since they did not bother to fix it I assume they...

    Is there any point in providing feedback?

    I should have bought a Samsung.

    The dynamic backlight is still crap. I guess it's more important to fix obscure issues than improve the image quality.

    At the request of MauriceW, here are my calibration settings (using Chromapure and a X-Rite Display 3 Pro Colorimeter - see http://chromapure.com ).

    No problem. Just keep in mind that every tv (even of the same model) is different and copying settings from others will only get you an approximation of what is possible if you (or a professional)...

    Hi J.Belm,

    My post was not a question but an observation/complaint. The dynamic backlight feature could be much better and actually useable if only the engineers at Philips knew what they were...

    I can only repeat what I already posted in the thread for the .044 firmware:

    PLEASE FIX THE DYNAMIC BACKLIGHT.

    I had this issue with an older firmware and solved it by doing a full factory reset of the tv. Maybe something you can try?

    Please fix the dynamic backlight. With the standard mode now being the same as the best picture mode it is completely useless as it dims dark scenes far too aggressively. Also limit the...

    One week later and I still have no problems with 171.51. In fact I'm very happy with the TV now.

    Happy to report that my standby issue has been resolved by doing a full factory reset. The TV actually seems a little bit faster coming out of standby now (and the Philips logo is back as well for...

    After upgrading to 171.51, standby does not work properly anymore on my 55pfl8008. When I take the tv out of standby it does turn on but I do not get any picture. I have to pull the plug and do a...
