Ok, I've updated and there's one problem I have, maily since the 32 version of the firmware, that is not solved.
It doesn't happen always, but very often - it just happened again, now with the new firmware.
I have my cable box on HDMI 3, but I also have DVB-T, connected to the building's external antenna, on the roof.
DVB-T reception is excellent, no problems there. I see the transmitter from the window, at less than 5Km distance.
Sometimes I go from the cable box to "Watch TV" (DVB-T), then I change channels back and forth to see what is goin' on.
Suddently the image and sound is lost - back screen.
Then I go to the menu and change to the cable box (HDMI3). The DVB-T channel name stays on screen. (!)
Back to the home menu and "Watch TV". Still no image and sound, back screen.
I browse through the DVB-T channels and no image on any.
The only solution is to power off the TV, using the power switch.
To put this into context, we in Portugal have only one DVB-T mux for now, with only 4 SD channels, in MPEG4.
The channels are SD but with high bitrate (as high as the HD channels on my cable provider), so when I want to watch these channels, I prefer DVB-T to my cable provider.
SD in MPEG4 is not usual (in other countries it's MPEG2), but here in Portugal our DVB-T is only MPEG4.
That's why I'm mentioning this.
I hope there's a solution for this soon.
A few days ago I had to use the power switch too many times to remember.
BTW my TV is a 37PFL7605H/12.
Oh and BTW, I notice that now with this 34 firmware, changing channels on DVB-T is faster.
Both image and sound show up faster.
I don't think Philips is telling everything they do on each firmware, on the release notes.
TELETEXT Problem is still present.
We've got DVB-T and yesterday I first checked with FW v0.140.32.0, afterwards with FW v0.140.34.0:
Exactly same results on both firmwares: ~4 seconds per channel change.
Just to let you know.
Still intermittend audio drops. More and more. tv is unusable. i m very very sad and angry. will broke my tv. 42PFL7695 FROM TURKEY
The zapping time depends on the DVB-T broadcast details, and the time you perform the change.

In what country do you observe 4 seconds typical zapping time?

In my case, it doesn't take 4 seconds for the image and sound to show up when changing channels, that's an ethernity.
It's more like 2 seconds.
My TV is a 32PFL6605H/12. With new firmware, the macroblock problem with laSexta HD is still present.
Philips, why do you have solved this annoying problem for 7605 TV's, but not for my TV?
How many months we must wait to have this problem solved?
The macroblocks problem with La Sexta (in Spain) have been solved with the new firmware version. My model is 7605. As I can see in other forums, almost all people with this model have fixed the problem.
I can't say nothing about the intermitent sound problem as it rarely happened to me and it's difficult to make it happen.
Thanks Philips for fixing the macroblocks problem with La Sexta. You have improved the opinion of many people about this tv.
Hello guys,i from Italy, i updated with the new firmware 0.34, the problems of the audio block have not been resolved,
This firmware release shows more intermittent sound loss that the previous one.incredible.
I noticed a loss of signal on HD channels,on channel 5 and Italy 1HD sometimes the tv tells me encrypted signal or program not available, channel 5 and Italy 1HD are free
now my tv is almost unusable,where is the old firmware 0.32?
we hope that Philips engineers preparing for the new firmware soon
excuse me for my english

Here is some background: This LaSexta macroblock issue was only reported from consumers with so-called "4DDR" models (like the higher series). Only lately, we also get complaints from consumers with "2DDR" models (like your TV). That is the reason why it has not been solved yet for all models.
Tip: Please take care that you always use high quality coax cable (preferably double shielded) with full metal shielded connectors (see example on picture). This to prevent any interference on the antenna signal.
solve the problem for the country Italy?
