    Hi,

    skype is build in the Firmware of the TV. It is also based on Hardware as the camera needs to be supported etc.
    The only way i now is to buy an external Device which does support Skype.
    Afaik some of the Philips BluRay Players do.

    Regards
    Thomas

    i own a blue ray player also (HTS7202/12) and no more skype on it (with the software updated).
    What do you mean by an external device which supports Skype? A laptop for example ? or does Philips sell some of these external devices...?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    no - it's not possible to upgrade the firmware to support Skype.

    However, Logitech is selling a Skype camera which you can connect via HDMI...
