    Thumbs up Experience thread - FW v000.171.051.000 (171.51) - for 8xx8 Series - 2013


    The new FW is live. For technical feedback (pos. and neg. points) please post here:

    This thread is more for details and discussions.
    This FW is applicable to EU models only.

    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.

    It will not be possible to downgrade to a previous software version (64.xx) after updating to version 171.51.
