    Hi OmerKadari,

    Regarding the Social TV app, could you please say in which way it isn't working?

    Are you able to open the app? Can you log into Facebook/Twitter accounts?

    Hi!

    To tell you the truth the tv is amazing, it's so sad that from networking side it's poorly
    made about the software, the netowrking loss compare to a simple LG or Smasung which DLNA works
    perfect. Please try to resolve the all your netwowkring issues so we can have a fully amazing TV that can stream
    MKv with srt perfectly.

    Thank you

    - Netflix: no possibility to change image settings when watching content from netflix. Which means that clearmotion etc. are enabled making everything looking like a soap opera, it just isn't a suitable effect for movies.

    ============================

    Hi Antti-la,

    In the Netflix app you are not able to change settings by clicking “Options” button, you have to access the menu and there you can still change all picture settings.

    I will however forward you feedback through development to Netflix regarding your wish for this feature.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    TV Model: 47pfl7008 (please fill in)
    Previous Firmware: 171.49 (please fill in)

    Positive:
    + indicated bugfixes work
    + seems faster once it's running
    +

    Negative:
    - no sound/video in EPG from channel
    - overlapping program text in EPG from channel
    - miracast is unable to connect to android 4.2 phone, simply times out
    - very long cold boot times (>1min!)
    - occasional black screen at channel switch
    - instability (no respons at all anymore, sometimes black screen) when using remote
    ============================

    it's so unstable that philips can't have released this version. i'm assuming the update didnt complete correctly somehow. is there a way to re-flash the same firmware?

    Hi Hbrug,

    I'm glad to hear some of your issues were resolved by reinstalling your TV (Experience Thread).

    Regarding Miracast: What Android device are you trying to use? Is this device Miracast certified? It would need to support HTCP 2.0. Also if the device encrypts the HTCP our TVs do not support this.

    Regarding the remote: Sometimes after a software update it can be a good idea to reset and re-pair the remote to the TV:

    Remove the batteries from the remote, place it on a flat surface with the top side down, gentle press down, letting all the buttons depress, for 4-5 seconds.
    Reinsert the batteries and re-pair the remote to the TV.

    Where do you get your channels from? Direct cable/terrestrial or via a set top box?

    Best regards,
    Ina

    i'm using a htc one running android 4.2.2. i'm told it should support miracast although i'm not sure what HTCP is.

    as for the remote, so far the tv is stable and the remote hasn't induced any problems so i'm assuming that problem is solved.

    oh and the channels are from dvb-c (so, cable) but those problems are gone after the tv reset too. your suggestions worked miracles, so much so that i think it should be in the default description before the tv needs to cold boot that if any problems occur, first try to reinstall the tv.

    Angry

    ============================
    TV Model: 55PFL8008k
    Previous Firmware: 0.171.49.0

    Positive:
    + None compared to 171.49 version (do not use / is not concerned by 171.51 "fixed bugs")


    Negative:
    - m2ts and mkv (full-HD) does not play properly anymore with the TV media player via USB or DLNA (hiccups, distorted lines, etc), where they were all playing flawlessly with 171.49 firmware

    - with my cable box (via HDMI), when switching from stereo (SD channel) to Dolby Digital (HD channel): then sound crackles on HD channels (Dolby Digital). TV off/on is the only way to come back to normal sound with Dolby Digital broadcast.

    - downgrade to 171.49 does not solve the above issues
