    Thumbs up Experience thread - FW v3.0.0.1 (3.0) - for 50x8 [/H] - 2013

    Hi all,

    The new FW is live. For technical feedback (positive and negative points) please post here:
    http://philips.to/19rpPxr

    This thread is mainly for details and discussions.

    This FW is applicable to EU models only.

    This FW is applicable to /H and /T models only.
    For /M models please see FW version 2.30
    For /K models please see SW version 3.1.0.1

    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.

    NB!
    Please also ensure all external devices are up to date with the latest software.
    If you are encountering any issues after a software update, please disconnect all external devices and reinstall the TV:
    Home > [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Reinstall TV]

    Please note:
    Reinstalling the TV will mean any connected HDD for USB recording/timeshift will need to be re-formatted, therefore erasing any pre-existing content.
    Reinstallation will also involve reinstallation of channels on all the internal tuners. This may take some time depending on provider.

    ============================
    TV Model: 42PFL5028H/12
    Previous Firmware: ????? Installed 3.0 right out of the box

    Positive:
    + Great Picture and Colors

    Negative:
    - In the manual it says you can re-order channels, but that option is missing in "List -> Options" for Digital and Analog channels (I have seen on someone elses set that it should be possible )
    - The model in the shop had the previous software and was much quicker and more responsive, and Smart-TV loaded its apps much faster
    - The look and feel seems sluggish (It takes long after startup untill you can select a channel or source)
    ============================

    TV Model: 42PFL5008H
    Previous Firmware: 2.30
    Negative:
    -The lack of smart tv ambilight function control, lack of home control function, the inability to control the image format, the inability enable 3D smart TV applications.
    -After sending the file dlna - the problem of image format, disappears a few items and aspect ratio does not change, reduced image
    -After sending the file dlna - when trying to read files from the connected pendrive, TV reboots.
    Each new update brings nothing and does not improve the main drawbacks of the TV. Too rarely appear updates. Are these defects can not be eliminated after such a long time?
