    Have unfortunately only negative points. This firmware seems to be a pure desaster.

    - HbbTV runs only if external HDD is disconnected. If HDD is connected, the red button opens the same menue is as with old firmware.

    - If HDD is connected, HbbTV is dead. But know even the time-shift recording is damaged. No stable un-interrupted audio and video. With old firmware and same HDD both was fine. Re-formatted HDD but without any effect.

    - Recording from guide doesn't work out at all.

    - Tried a 32Gb USB stick instead of HDD but the baviour is exactly the same.

    - Explored HbbTV a bit (HDD of course needs to be removed). If channels are zipped, HbbTV follows until ZDF is reached. From this point forward HbbTV remains on ZDF with no matter which channel is viewed.

    - If a stored film is selected, the channel switches to the actual channel minus 1 channel and playback doesn't work out at all.

    - If HDD is connected the audio bar disappears.

    - Even without HDD sometimes HbbTV doesn't work after TV set is powered on. Then the same screen as with "old" firmware appears.

    An absolute desaster what you have released here. More backsteps are hard to beat. See Philips moving more & more downwards. This is far beyond what should be quality assurance by the customers.

    Best regards,

    Willi

    Hi Ina,

    what do you want to tell us ? Didn't you tell yesterday that Philips doesn't censor Posts ? My Feeling is that i have not fully understood you.

    Best regards,

    Willi

    You are free to post off topic in the Experience Thread, but in the Technical threads, please stick to technical feedback.

    Please use the following template in this thread:

    The template should explain the reach of what this refers to.

    I'm sure you can appreciate that the job of collating feedback for all the Philips softwares is not a small task. Therefore I politely ask for users to restrict their messages to Technical Feedback in this thread.

    Also, some users are posting the same messages twice, sometimes up to 4 times in the Technical threads, as they have not noticed the moderation message.

    There is plenty of evidence throughout the entire forum, that we do not censor posts. But in this thread we reserve the right to keep things "on topic".

    Thank you for your understanding.

    TV Model: 32PFL4508K/12
    Previous Firmware:

    Positive:


    Negative:

    Here are a few bugs that bothers me most:

    - Push "Format" (aspect ratio) button on the remote control while, watching movie from USB drive, stops current play and switches to television source.

    - Watching 3d mkv video from usb hdd, then switch to tv, then switch to USB and start the same movie again - video and sound stutters a lot. The only way to play normally is to reboot the TV.

    - TV became unresponsive while I was reordering channels. Only stand-by button worked. On next power-on - black screen. I had to disconnect it from the power socket.

    - External subtitles (avi + .ssa/.ass/.txt ...) through DLNA does not work - please answer my question in the separate topic

    - Picture quality on non HD televisions is very bad.
    - Picture profiles are also very bad. With every of default profiles colors/brighnes/sharpness feels very wrong. With previous firmware 2.30 picture were better.

    ============================
    TV Model: 47PFL5038K/12
    Previous Firmware: 2.30

    Positive:
    - HbbTV (not tested functionality tho)

    Negative:
    - TV stopped to play videos with higher bandwidth from DLNA (1080p "non-3D" videos, 1080p 3DSBS videos). Tested both - wired and wireless connection. The video usually starts fine, but a few seconds later it freeze for a while, then 2 sec normal playback, then again freeze for a sec and so on, so on. 720p video played fine. Network is fast enough (1 gigabit), second device next to my TV working like a charm. Reverted to 2.30 solved the problem for now.

    - Format changing when exit from video to TV (TV was set for ZOOM, after video playback from DLNA/USB it reverted to Widwscreen or 16:9 - cannot remember which one)

    - When you input something to SmartTV search, it takes ages as the TV probably searches instantly without clicking the Magnifier. (Better you must click search to search start.)

    - better Videoplayer. If you want to skip to some time in video, you must skip by 10secs jumps. Better to implement for example: "jump to time", so you can input time, where you want to jump

    - better channel "arranging" mechanism. Now the two channels swap their positions when arranging manually - it takes ages. Would be better, that channel I am moving will shift all channels (for example, I want to move channel X from position 90 to position 10. Now channel X and channel at pos 10 only swaps positions. Better would be that all channels starting with pos 10 will only increase their position - 89->90, 88->89, ...., 10->11). Also Deleting unused channels would be nice.

    ============================

    thanks for solving these problems + those reported above ASAP

    TV Model: 47PFL528K/12
    Previous Firmware:

    Negative:

    - Ambiligth sometimes freeze with upper left corner orange as for no signal just orange input information on screen even if there is signal

    - Very slow guide. When changing page active item stays at last position not first one on new page. It is really annoying, sometimes it changes active item and page by themself

    - Very slow HbbTV, i dont know if its Philips issue or the supplier

    - No subtitles on DLNA !

    - There are no volume bar on HD DTV, it comes alive on SD channels.

    - I dont know how format works i use only noscale but it changes by itself

    - There is no Picture in Picture wich would be mega useful.

    - There is no reaction when i try to connect Direct Wifi from Android phone

    - YouTube doesnt use number keys for letter input, its another pain in the ass writing anything is horrible

    -Would be great if all smart apps would be able to resume playback and use number keys for input (propably supplier concern)
