    Hello,

    There is currently no ETA for the new software update.

    Please keep an eye on your support pages or the Software 2k13 subforums as the update will be announced there as soon as it is available.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Hi pfl8008,

    This is mainly a user to user forum. Here users are welcome to help and give suggestions to each other as well as comment on features and give feedback.

    We do monitor all threads and take all feedback into account when developing new software.

    All new software go through vigorous testing before being released. If the developers are not entirely happy with the software, then a release will not be made until it is up to the developers' standard.

    I would like to thank you for your feedback as it is always very helpful to hear back straight from the users.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Also new tvs should go through vigorous testing before being released. If the developers are not entirely happy with the software, then a release will not be made until it is up to the developers' standard.

    I really think its getting time for the next fw update now. Too many bugs in a very expensive tv. I bought a top class tv to avoid these kind of issues.

    User to user forum?
    Were i can ask quastions about bugs then?some are more then a year old?
    When i call philips support line they cant help with things like this.
    I think philips can reply to the posted bugs and give people they buy a expensive tv a good support.

    A new official firmware is coming soon (this week?) for 6, 7 and 8 series: version 0.171.48.0 (announced on AVCesar.com).

    A pre-release (0.171.47.0, built on 5 June 2013) has been leacked (on Philips German support German) and main visible changes found by "unofficial beta testers" are: full DTS support + SmartScreen function available on Android devices.

    Of course I guess some bugs fixing is there as well, not knowing what has been corrected (?)

    Hi all,

    Please be aware that the leaked versions of the above mentioned software are unofficial versions and therefore we can not guarantee that any of the mentioned features or changes will be implemented in the official release.

    I received my 40PFL8008K today and sofar I'm liking it.

    However the flashing Ambilight when playing 24p material is very annoying. Will this be fixed in the upcoming firmware?

    FYI, I took the plunge and tested the leaked 171.47 software.

    I haven't found any major issues sofar and can confirm that Miracast works with my Nexus 4 smartphone.

    Unfortunately the ambilight flashing when playing 24p material is NOT FIXED in this firmware. I hope it will be fixed in the upcoming official release, because it's really annoying when watching blu-rays or TV shows using my media player.

    The ambilight issue not getting fixed in the new fw would be a HUGE disappointment. But lets not get ahead of things and wait for the actual fw to be released. I do get a bit impatient now by the way....
