    - this version is more stable then previous versions, did not have any black screens since this firmware.

    negative
    - smart tv is still slow, has to be a lot more responsive. when i click a button on my remote i want to see that response inmediately on screen (not after a second)..
    - Internet tv guide is unusable...when i turn on my tv (no quick start) and after 10 seconds it is on, i then click tv guide, then i do not want to wait another minute !!! before the complete tv guide shows...

    -still some bugs:
    Screen freeze (goes black en returns after +- 10 seconds) when you scroll down the tv settings menu quick (scrool down in menu screen, sound , common etc)
    - mouse pointer does not always shows up in smart tv
    - apps sometimes don't show up in smart tv..


    For next firmware please fix the bugs and please focus on speed of the apps/functions and smarttv
