    Where did you find this file? Can you please give a link? I only find version 32 on the Philips site.

    Hope this one finally solves the sound drop problem...

    EDIT: found it. I went to the product webpages but those still show the 32 version. I'll share my experiences here!

    It is online, at least in the Greek pages. What is it supposed to fix?

    There is no change log...

    The first impression: the app "dayly motion" stopped working. It says that requires features not available in my 9705 tv...
    Well, we had 5-6 services, now we have one less...

    Hey Petatsis, when I look in the Apps overview, Greece has 15 Services (and now 14), where do you get the "5-6" number? DailyMotion service was probably not good enough, so Philips decided to stop until they get their stuff right. Seems to me a wise decision...

    sorry to ask but tell me a serious reason to use all these features with my tv and don't go one (two, three) meter away and use my pc .
    That the tv have to do here in Greece is the EPG guide and it can't.

    Thats true. EPG support is badly missing from this TV. In fact, its my number 1 complain.
    There is no workarround for the missing EPG. For the sound drop, there is: I connected my HTPC to the amplifier directly, and I got DTS as a bonus. But for EPG I can do nothing...

    Yes, the services you mention are there, but:

    1) Some of them, do not have content relative to the country. What is the use of the meteo service, since all data is for 5 countries?

    2) Some of them, are malfunctioning. For example, you cannot search youtube with Greek characters, which means that it is impossible to access a large amount of interesting (to Greeks) videos.

    3) Some of these apps, are not real apps. Is Philips TV tutorial & quick guides an app? Isn't Volkswagen app an advertisement?

    The app that has country related content is only one: tunein.radio.
    Then, I can add funspot, picasa, twitter, ebay, screendreams, and myalbum, as they don't depend on country.

    These are 7 services (including the unknown in Greece myalbum.com).

    The rest 4 remaining services (meteo, icconcerts, tunin.fm & youtube) work, but are of limited interest, because they don't have or you cannot access relative content.

    Honestly, after 2 previous useless firmware release, I'm confident that I could wasting my time even in this occasion.
