    To my knowledge, neither of the two:

    - I heard that it is possible to use other wifi USB dongles with the TV ...
    - ... but only if they use the same wifi chip as the Philips one

    This is a driver issue: the TV needs to supply the correct driver for the dongle. If the driver is not available, it will not work.

    The Philips one is therefore the safest bet - they know which drivers their TV supports. If you want to use another one, buy from a source with a friendly return policy, so that you don't end up with a piece of kit the you cannot use.

    When googling for supported dongles, make sure that you use recent posts: sometimes, suppliers change chipsets in their products, and stuff that was supported in the previous generation suddenly stops working.
