    Wireless HiFi system (AW series) FW V5.42S is live now

    Dear users,

    Please be noted that software version 5.42S has now been released.

    NOTE: The AirStudio app MUST be closed and opened again after the device firmware has been upgraded successfully. You can follow the links below to force close the AirStudio app.

    For iOS users:

    For Android users: Go to HOME screen, select MENU --> SETTINGS --> APPLICATIONS --> Manage Applications, then touch the Running tab and select AirStudio, then touch either Stop or Force Stop button

    Benefits of this software upgrade:

    1. The time it takes to play the next track on the local playlist has been reduced a lot (to about 2 to 3 seconds between tracks)
    2. The time to playback an internet radio station once it is selected is faster
    3. Volume control is more responsive
    4. Internet radio stations playability for stations WDR, FFH, MDR etc. has been improved
    5. Improvement in product stability
    6. The album art display is now displayed at the center of the screen for easy viewing, for internet radio and music services
    7. Track information or Internet Radio station information is now available on the Internet Radio playback screen (when the radio station provides it)
    8. When an internet radio station is (temporarily) not available, it takes less time to find out so that user can choose another station quicker
    9. M3U playlist is now handled better. Particularly when the playlist has some missing information, the device will best attempt to playback the content
    10. Internet radio station logo (thumbnail view) is now displayed properly on the station selection menu
    11. Interoperability improvement with HTC-phones (text entry in text-boxes) and Nexus Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS
    12. Corrected the Help text about Presets in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian languages
    13. Juke music service is now enabled for selected countries, please visit for more information

    Kind regards,
    Philips Moderation Team

    With this update the behavior of the home button changed, and the button that previously took you to the device list was removed from the bottom panel. This is a bit annoying since this adds another step to changing music. If you are on the play screen in Spotify the fastest way to search for new music was previously to press the home key and reenter Spotify and perform a search. That step just got a click longer. The alternative is to press back several times from the play screen. Other people have complained in this forum that it takes too many clicks to get to the music. For all those users who only have one speaker the services tab/device list is rather useless and having a button going to this list with only one entry is rather pointless.
