    Hello. My TV is 42PFL6008. I see in Changelog that you have added DTS for 7000/8000/9000 series.
    Do you plan to add DTS to 6000series in next update? I'm asking because I'm thinking of returning the TV and I have one more week to decide.
    Anyway, I'm very pleased with the perfect picture, but it's a shame that Philips doesn't support so common features, for example Samsung have DTS in lower class models.
