    Thumbs up Technical feedback - FW v3.2.0.1 - for 32x8, 42x8, 44x8, 45x8, 49x8 and 50x8 - 2013

    Hi all.

    The new FW is now live. For details please see here:
    32x8: http://philips.to/1ouGfwA
    42x8/44x8/45x8/49x8: http://philips.to/1ouGk3z
    50x8: http://philips.to/1iVVJX4

    This thread is for technical feedback only. For other discussions please post in the related discussion thread. "Off topic" posts regarding the firmware will be moved to the experience thread.

    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.


    Please use the following template in this thread:

    TV Model: 47PFL5038H/12 Serial Number: FZ1A1403041354
    Previous Firmware: TPM1013E_003.000.000.001


    Negative: When i play on Playstation3 i put TV on Game mode on or turned off and it doesn't scale right it zooms the image with "widescreen" activated but when i put it on Computer mode on it scales right. When its on Computer mode if i change something on image options color contrast etc... it doesnt work.

    Another problem is when i change aspect ratio during playing games it changes me the dynamic contrast to minimum so i have to enter to options again and turn it off.

    Here it is with Game mode on and turned off


    And here it is with Computer mode on it looks ok

    TV Model: 40PFL4528
    Previous Firmware: 3.0.0.1

    Negative:
    - Picture is always zoomed a little bit (when played files from usb or network) both in "widescreen" or "4:3" modes even if "margin" setting in menu is set to zero, so it is now impossible to get perfect 1920x1080 pixel to pixel picture on a panel (few pixels at picture margins are lost)

    Serial: FZ1A1324021155
    Actual: TPM1013E_003.002.000.001
    Previous: TPM1013E_003.001.000.001

    Positive:
    + many issues as of 3.1.01 seem to be solved
    + acceptable speed for booting
    + accepatable Speed switching channel
    + USB recording seems to be back to 100% functionality, no bucking of video or audio
    + SmartTV okay & fast
    + HbbTV okay as long as no USB HDD is connected

    Hi Again Ina,

    TV Model: 47PFL5038H/12 Serial Number: FZ1A1403041354
    Previous Firmware: TPM1013E_003.000.000.001

    Negative: I've noticed that the problem with scaling image correctly not only happens with HDMI only, also when i'm watching a movie on the USB and watch TV channels it zooms in the image on "widescreen".

    Subtitles activated on movies in USB it's set the subtitles are way up it might drop a bit?

    ============================
    TV Model: 46PFL4208T/12
    Previous Firmware: upgraded straight out-of-the-box

    2 weeks old TV, using it in Finnish DNA DVB-C cable network and have it connected with 100M internet connection over wireless and wired, 1GB LAN with private addresses.
    The first two issues are the most critical to me. Would be also good if overscan was removed and playback was smooth. The rest of the issues I can live with. I have also lots of comments on usability, but that's another post.

    Positive:
    + don't know

    Negative:
    - DVB subtitles on DVB-C Finnish YLE HD channels not working correctly: previous subtitles are partly visible when new subtitles are shown ie. if the new subtitle is shorter than the last one, the part that was longer is also shown. Also first line of two line subtitles is not shown if previous subtitle only had single line.
    Subtitles work correctly on DVB-C regular SD (YLE) channels

    - TV does not find DLNA shares immediately if wifi is used, have to wait 3-4 minutes! before DLNA share is found. It finds shares immediately if wired connnection is used. There are no problems playing media on wifi, but if you use any other source, and go back to network source, it says it cannot connect to DLNA source(s) and you have to wait 3-4 minutes again!
    Speed is shown as 130Mbps, full quality, WPA2+PSK, my network is auto DHCP IP with 192.168.0.x addresses, 255.255.255.0 mask

    - Overscan is applied to all DLNA, USB, and HbbTV videos, why do you even have overscan function at all, I want to see all of the picture and not some zoomed in version thank you!

    - Playback of DLNA, USB videos is not smooth. Is the TV frame rate synced with video frame rate, it feels like it is not?

    - If my router was off when I turned TV on, the TV does not show HbbTV button even after router is turned on (wireless), with wired connection it works

    - HbbTV does not work on YLE HD channels (I do not know if it should)

    - Finnish MTV3 HbbTV news video stops shortly after starting it (wireless + wired)

    - Android remote application failed to find my TV over wireless with high probability, never tested with wired connection

    - Playback of video freezes once every 5-10 minutes (on average) (randomly), with specific codec (see attachment), from network and usb same thing, playback continues when jumping forward or backward in time

    - TV uncontrollable about 30 seconds after starting from standby (I can accept this as a feature, but it's unexcusable)

    - Volume level indication is not shown (when controlling volume) after using video playback from network or usb (maybe other smart functions as well), and returning to live TV, happens pretty much always

    - Sometimes TV channel name is not shown after using smart TV functions and returning to live TV

    - Crashes and freezes of various degree when using smart tv functions: internet or applications, either require turning TV off or even cold power cycle, so annoyed that don't want to use it

    - my 4 GB USB stick is not accepted as a live TV pause device for whatever reason (maybe few bits too small)

    - Could not change TV channel after setting up favorite channels and using them for the first time, turned TV off and on again and it has worked since then

    - Picture over Miracast is unusably distorted and blocky with Intel HD 3000 series laptop with latest drivers, even with static picture. Ok Intel is not Miracast certified afaik, and didn't know what to expect.

    TV Model: 40PFL3208H/12
    Previous Firmware: didn't note it

    Positive: don't know, just bought the tv and upgraded

    Negative:
    - very big difference in sound volume between levels 10 and 11
    - for digital channels with subtitles option set to On, and Language Romanian, you have to set these again each time you switch to the channel, in order to see the subtitles.
    - in Smart TV mode, the on-screen keyboard disappears after few letters typed (usually after pressing the f key), then everything freezes and you have to press Exit on the remote control.
    - in order to see the digital channels of Romania RCS-RDS provider, you have to set the country to Finland (other northern country may work too).

    TV Model: 46pfl4908h/12
    Previous Firmware: TPM1013E_003.000.000.001

    Positive:
    none

    Negative:
    - still regularly hanging on startup so I have to unplug the power cord
    - OVERSCAN EVERYWHERE: This is crazy. There is overscan everywhere, even on miracast. No way to disable it, like we live in the good old crt era.
    - still big step in volume between steps 10 and 11

    overall tv is still hardly usable. new fw doesn't resolve any of the issues and introduces new ones.

    Negative:
    - Guide (from dvbt no internet) have too big fonts and most of text is cuted, only small part of guide is able to read.
    - When turn on guide (from dvbt no internet) there is no sound whilst there is no objective reason for it.
    - when strat tv an try to decrease volume many times, first of all it is not workind, second it makes tv not responding at ll. After cold reboot and try to decrese volume after some long time, Tv is rebooting.
    Volume is absolutely most important when for tv control. Please fix it. Now I have very very bad opinion on philips. Hope you care about it.
