    Ok, just updated from 171.49 to .51
    I've noticed a ticking sound from the hdmi - just like it was in the 64.18...

    On the good side seems likes the menus runs much faster
    Also in the app center

    Had a quick look at this new version.

    Didn't find any differences yet, but I can already tell you that the ambilight flashing with 24p material is still not fixed. Come on Philips, let us enjoy our blu-rays the way it's intended on this TV!

    TV Model: 55PFL8008
    Previous Firmware: 171.49

    Seems if the tv is off over night (or for long time) I turn it on and I get no input from the hdmi except sound, all menus are working but I have to turn off the tv wait about a minute and turn it on... Then it works...

    FYI, the Dutch support/download link for the 40PFL8008K/12 is broken:

    http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/d...&slg=nl&scy=NL

    Luckily I could download the firmware by choosing Belgium as my country.

    From ALL SW Releases the 171.049 AND 171.51 are the worst releases!

    -Even the .51 release when boot from standby it take up to 20 sec before the tv give some screen.
    -No Philips logo anymore when startup.
    -Tv act very slow,
    -Youtube App Keyboard form remote still not work.
    -Light Sensor still not work, Like the spec say, "When sensor is on it reduce the screen how light/Dark the room is".

    So developers, back to draw table because this 2 releases are bad.
    The only SW Release that work good and fine was the 64.018.
    For the mean time release a SW with base 64.18 so that we have some good and stable SW.

    After upgrading to 171.51, standby does not work properly anymore on my 55pfl8008. When I take the tv out of standby it does turn on but I do not get any picture. I have to pull the plug and do a hard reset now every time I want to watch tv.

    Also, another frustration (also present in earlier firmwares) is that PNM gets turned on every time after standby/restart even though it has been disabled earlier.

    And please Philips, improve the dynamic backlight best picture setting. At the moment it's completely useless as it dims the picture far too much at low luminosity levels.

    Dear philips,

    Just updated to 171.51

    Lets be honest, ambilight is one of the most important features which makes people prefer a philips tv instead of another brand. This is exactly why i bought one of the flagship models (46pfl8008). Now, a few months and firmwares later my ambilight controls on the tv makes no sense at all and the leds are still flickering while watching 24p material (I love watching movies philips!). These issues really starting to bother me. I payed €1899,- for a tv which acts likes some B-brand cheap peace of hardware.

    Philips, start focussing on these important issues instead of changing the cursor color in a not functioning smart tv!!

    Sorry but i'm starting to get a little bit annoyed by this! I hope for a decent update in the near future!

    LET'S MAKE THINGS BETTER!

    Happy to report that my standby issue has been resolved by doing a full factory reset. The TV actually seems a little bit faster coming out of standby now (and the Philips logo is back as well for what it's worth) .

    Hi Stefano,

    20 seconds for start up from standby is normal behaviour unless Quick Start is enabled. From your next point this appears to be the case, so if Quick Start is disabled on your TV, please try to reinstall the TV to solve the missing Philips logo issue.

    We are aware of the issue regarding the remote control keyboard not working with the new YouTube app. We have fed this information on to Google who are addressing this.

    Please see this post regarding the Light Sensor algorithms:

    Hello Ina,

    - 20 seconds for startup isnt normal, when i read out nand, there you see that there is a problem.
    - Quikstart is enabled.
    - about the "Lightsensor issue" its complete a another story that you telling, maybe you can have a look at the product specs, there its write: Lightsensor reduce the backlight to a dark or lightroom.
    So then i think it is time to change the complete specs for the tv .
    Like i already have post, tv is already put back in factory mode but no differents.
    The fact stay that this 2 releases are not good, buggy, not complete and need to be re-writed.
