    Technical feedback - FW v000.064.018.000 (64.18) - for 6/7/8/9xx8 series - 2013

    Hi all.

    The new FW is live. This thread is for technical feedback only. For other discussions please post in the related discussion thread. "Off topic" posts regarding the firmware will be moved to the discussion thread (linked over).


    Important:
    After upgrading your TV, it is necessary to perform a "cold start". This means that, after the TV is running again (after the update), shut down the TV, wait 1 minute (till all components are shut down), and unplug the TV from the mains (pull power cord) for 2 minutes before starting again.

    Changelog:

    • Solution about consistent behavior of the EXIT key.
    • Homescreen adaptation for Germany. (Kabel/Antennen Fernsehen)
    • Hebrew text disabled in Now en Next + 8 days EPG. (Mainly solved for Israel market)
    • Improvement stability behavior when starting up from HDMI source.
    • Live TXT subtitles from broadcast no longer shown during playback of a recording without
    • BBC iPlayer, video and radio program is functioning again.
    • Solution about sometimes no connection to Philips Smart TV portal during virgin installation.




    Please use the following template in this thread.

    TV model: 46PFL8008
    Fimware 64.18 installed

    I have the 46PFL8008 (before I had the 46PFL8606)

    Positive:
    + dual core
    + sound

    Negative:
    - the menu interface,... I found better more structural in the 46PFL8606
    - Functions that don't work as they should:
    'hdmi-blacklevel detection' is not available in the menu picture when an HDMI source is on. This should be available accordingly to the manual of the tv + this was also available in the 46PFL8606 when an HDMI source was on.

    'clear lcd' don't make any improvement setting it ON or OFF when perfect natural motion is OFF, you have to set perfect natural motion to at least MINIMUM for the clear lcd to work. This is not the way it should work, in the 46PFL8606 there is improvement when setting clear lcd from OFF to ON when perfect natural motion is OFF.

    light sensor don't work properly (I don't use this, but I tested it)




    I think these things are Software related, and I hope Philips (TPvision) will investigate on this and fixing the Software.

    Regards

    Thumbs down Ambilight controls mixed/reversed

    ============================
    TV Model: 55PFL7008k
    Previous Firmware: 064.018

    Positive:
    + no comparison available (firm. preinstalled)

    Negative:
    -Ambilight dynamic and brightness are mixed: when you adjust dynamic, part of the bar adjusts bightness and part adjust dynamic. The same with the brightness bar. You need to go back and forth several times to randomly find a suitable setting.
    -As this set came with the latest firmware, cannot do a comparison to former, but menus are too slow.
    ============================

    ============================
    TV Model: 46PFL8008
    Previous Firmware:064.015

    Positive:
    + menu scrolling faster

    Negative:
    - while playing certain mkv's (im afraid all but haven't tested that many) one or two of the ambilight leds are blinking,especially one of the leds in the upper right corner, like 3 times a minute.
    - Light sensor does not seem to work, turning on/off in a dark situation does not have any effect on the bright image.
    - Clear LCD does not seem to work.
