    Hi,
    TV Model: 40PFL8008S/12
    Previous FW: v000.171.056.000

    Positive:
    - ambilight flickering on upper-right side is not occuring anymore on 24p videos;
    - another thing is, I think the clouding was fixed. I thought that was a hardware problem, but I didn't see the glares in the corners anymore, when the screen is black (it's perfect black now!);
    - Youtube app seems a little faster (still needs improvement);
    - 3D detected in Youtube app, although some issues here.

    Negative:
    - menu/SmartTV performance still low and annoying, especially in 3D;
    - still no remote text input in Youtube app;
    - when detecting 3D in Youtube, there are no 3D options when pressing the button on the remote; on some videos the 2 images are not synced;
    - clouding still occurs in 3D.

    Waiting for the changelog.

    Didn't do much testing yet, but I just watched a movie on 24p using my media player and the ambilight flashing does seem to be fixed (finally!).

    Hi

    Toengel is right,

    the App is created by Google and therefore google is the Company who has to redsign their app.
    However, as Youtube is not only for Philips TV's but also for other Devices and Companies its not allways an easy Decision on what to use and what not.

    Regards
    Thomas

    Hi,

    I know it is Google's app, but are you saying we as a Philips TV owner need to contact Google about this?

    I hope not...Philips must as a company get hold of Google and have them fix it, it can't be your customers problem.

    Yes looks like the ambilight flashing may be fixed!!
    I also noticed that the tv now shows up in the iphone app as 2013 model tv and not 2012 like it did before. So hopefully the simplyshare bit of the app will be more reliable since it looks like that bit has been updated??
    I still can't get the TV guide on my iphone to connect, going into the guide and pressing yellow button still just shows "recordings" on my attached hard drive - no detected devices???
    I think the clouding may be slightly better on my set but isn't totally gone. Not sure they did anything there.
    I only installed it last night, but looking good so far, thanks philips!!!
    Cheers

    Hi,

    did you switch to "EPG from network" in the TV settings? Only then, you can pair your SmartPhone (MyRemote TV Guide) with your TV-EPG.

    Dear jea,

    i totally understand your feelings and we as company are in direct contact with others, including google.
    However, google does this app not only for us. It is done for a lot of Devices, some of them don't have a Keyboard so it is googles decision on how to create their app.

    To make google understand how important this feature is for you, tell them directly.

    @Skinnez, can you confirm that the flicker is gone?

    Regards
    Thomas

    Hi all, it seems that my tv stopped crashing in combination with the 'Ambilight & Hue' iOS app since I installed the update this morning. This had been an enormous issue for me over the past months. Every 20+ minutes the tv would black out on me when I used it together with the Hue lights and the app. Very annoying problem. I will check if this is a stable situation and report back. Right now I'm a happy camper

    Flickering of Ambilight seems gone, but i still have issues with internet connectivity. Is there anybody over here using this TV with a wired (UTP) connection?

    @Philips - Thomas
    I watched a 3D film last night and all seemed fine but not all 3D films I've watched have done the flickering, and I tried what I know does briefly tonight and it appears OK. I will try more over the next few days and let you know for sure. My main issue that remains is getting the My remote EPG working from my iPhone. It just doesn't appear in the program guide as the instructions state. Is there something I am missing..?

    @TNG
    I have my TV connected via wired network connection and the internet/network connectivity seems fine (no issues). I can also stream large 3D films without any dropouts. Could be your network??

    Cheers

    @TNG: no problems here with my ethernet internet connection. What exact problems are you facing? Did you try to completely reset the tv to factory settings? Maybe even try to reset your modem/router
