    Hi,

    currently the downloaded ZIP files contains a UPG file, which needs to be renamed to "autorun.upg" if you want to install the update via USB stick.

    Hello,
    I've just bought 47PFL7008K. Unfortunately there are issues with PC/Game mode - Picture moves around 5 pixel (is hard to tell exactly) right when in PC/Game mode and as a result picture is clipped on the right and there is black bar on the left. With PC/Game mode turned off everything is fine (except for lag).
    TV Software version is QF2EU-0.173.44.0 (newest at the moment).

    Has someone encountered this issue before? Are there any workarounds (except turning of Game mode )?

    Thanks for answer!

    I decided to put my feedback in a google docs table, because it feels like I have been repeating myself over and over the last couple of months.
    This table is by no means complete, but does display the bugs and other shortcomings I feel this TV still has.

    Short conclusion: version 173.44 is marginally better at best.
    This TV is in my opinion still a long way from the type of product that one might expect from this brand and for this price tag.

    Hi,

    try to reinstall the latest firmware:

    - create folder "UPGRADES" on an empty USB stick
    - copy the "autorun.upg" into that folder and rename the file to "test.upg"
    - plug in USB stick
    - go to software menu and chose local updates
    - chose test.upg
