    FW v171.049.000 discussion

    Hey all,

    I did some first tests with the new firmware. I can confirm that DTS is working (thanks for that one)! I did not see any led blinking with 24p material YET, but haven't got time to do a decent check. Menus seem to react faster too.

    Please share your experiences.

    Grz, mark

    Ambilight flashing is definitely still there when playing 24p material

    Also, the logic of the ambilight dynamic and brightness settings is beyond me. Looks like ambilight only matches on-screen colors at dynamic settings 8-10. What's also weird is that on setting 9, ambilight is turned off during dark scenes, while on setting 10 it stays white. The ambilight algorithm on the 40PFL9704H I had before worked a lot better IMHO.

    Netflix gets stuck at the "Are you a member of Netflix?" screen...

    Waited so long and when it arrives it does not work - very disappointing

    Shame on Philips for not fixing the ambilight behavior while watching 24p matterial. I really see this issue as a defect on the tv. All users are complaining about it and it should be fixed soon.

    Guys,

    We are aware of the issue. Our intention was to get it fixed in this SW version, but this fix introduced regression. As this 171.49 was a very important one (important fixes and even some new features, like DTS, WSS for Android, Multi Room TV), it was decided to skip the AL fix for this one, and we will try to get it solved in one of the future SW releases. Please be patient.

    Regards,
    JuAn

    Hi all,

    Thank you for your feedback

    Regarding Netflix:

    We are aware that the Netflix app is currently not working with this software update, even though it is visible in SmartTV.

    We are working hard to get it the full app out to you, so you can enjoy it as soon as possible.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    I'm missing the Philips logo in this update. When I turn on my TV it goes totally black like it is off. The only difference is during the start-up process the red light at the bottom is off. At first I thought the TV was not responding to my remote.
    Great other features like the wifi smart screen. Keep up the good work.

    Hey all, with the new youtube app, the keyboard on the back of my remote doesn't work anymore, anyone else has this issue? Besides, the app runs really laggy.

    3. There, go to the audio section and you should see list of available audio track(s) and have the ability to select the desired one


    Note: this "Options" menu does as well allow you to active and choose subtitles (external, not mkv embedded...) + their coding type (but no font option at all...)
    Note 2: other tabs allow the access to the supported HDMI CEC commands (if any), to change default pictures styles, 3D options etc

    = very useful menu, but very very slow unfortunately !

    Best regards,

    old version was: 064.018

    also: today the TV had some weird lines and the picture quality was bad, again cold reset, the lines went out, but it seems that the picture quality is still not as good, have some weird vertical lines on objects like faces, I will try to reset everything to defaults will see if that helps...
    I was not expecting this from a high quality tv...
