    Thumbs up Technical feedback – FW 0.14.105.0 (v14.105) – 58x6, 6xx6, 7xx6, 8xx6 and 9xx6 series

    Hi all.

    The new FW is now live. For details please see here:
    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...nd-9xx6-series

    This thread is for technical feedback only. For other discussions please post in the related discussion thread. "Off topic" posts regarding the firmware will be moved to the experience thread.

    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.



    Please use the following template in this thread:

    Previous Firmware: Q5551_0.14.104.0

    Positive:
    No positive changes

    Negative:
    Still no fix for audio dropouts while playing Dolby Digital output through the Digital Audio out connection.

    Playing Digital audio only works by changing this option:
    Setup - Channel settings - Languages - Preferred audio format - Standard

    The drawback is that this also disables the Dolby Digital output.
    So you'll be able to listen to TV sound through a home receiver, yet it won't be in Dolby Digital.

    Previous Firmware: 14.104

    Positive:

    - Turn on the TV; go to Setup; go to Watch demos and watch the HD demo clip. After the clip ends, the screen stays black and the TV silently reboots. This does not happen every time, but most of the times, so it is reproducible.
    - Make sure you have TV speakers > EasyLink Autostart enabled. Turn on TV. After the TV has booted and you start to see some picture, you will first hear 1-2 seconds of audio from the TV speakers; only then it sends out the signal to start my 5.1 home theatre (Pioneer BCS-212). Why doesn't it send the start signal at the same time when the TV starts to boot?
    - After my home theatre has booted up, MOST OF THE TIME THERE'S NO AUDIO FROM IT. Very seldom it works. So I have to use plain 'EasyLink' instead of autostart, and manually go to Options -> Speakers -> External.
    - Watching 720p/1080p video through DLNA seems shaky at best. After a few minutes, sometimes after some tens of minutes, the picture just stops, and soon after that the TV usually reboots. I've noticed slightly better behaviour when connecting to the router via RJ-45 cable instead of WiFi (I have the PTA01 adapter), but even then the problem persists. Also, it seems to be more common with bigger data loads (i.e., 720p/1080p), but it has happened with smaller video files, too. My router is Apple TimeCapsule 2TB. Signal strength is Good. I'm not experiencing any other problems with my network, so I don't think it's the router's fault. I'm running Twonky 7.1.2 on my MacBook Pro as the media server.

    Management of local dimming always slower. Now the local dimming is practically unusable, this also affects the black level that has lost in depth by several firmware updates.
    Philips must solve this problem because the main feature of this TV no ​​longer performs its function.

    TV shows subtitles very severely. They are not centered and some Czech characters not displayed correctly. also by the subtitle could be more settings because the size and the background is terrible!
