not ever again will buy a philips
I purchased a 4007 TV series. the software is shameful. at each update is heavily deteriorated. the last 0.100.00.0 dates from 09/09/2013 and is the worst of all. if an object philips will purchase again, maybe a blender.

yes, never buy philips TV . I have model 4007 and firmware is tragedy. Very slow GUI, disconnect dlna server after 30 minutes. Very Very slow channel list. Slow smartTV. Unusable CA+ modul = randomize restart TV.

I also own a Philips 4007 TV. In addition to the above mentioned problems my main request (long ago) was to support subtitles in Greek. Although the TV supports SRT subtitles it doesn't support Greek subtitles (and of course other languages). Such an easy feature provided from the beginning to almost any smart TV of other makers (Philips competitors and in many cases much cheaper than Philips).

For many years almost all my electrical appliances were Philips. Even my wife was working for Philips for a long time.
Probably this wil be the last product of Philips that I bought.
Me too. I have 42pfl6007k and it's the worst tv I ever had. Software is shitty, optical out still doesn't work correct, so I can't using my amplituner because tv hasn't other audio out. I want my money back!
Hmm? There should be a standard 3.5mm stereo mini-jack on the left side of the TV, where the USB ports are. The 3.5 jack is most probably the very first from the top. Also, if your amplifier/tuner supports it, you could also try HDMI (ARC).
Personally, I haven't found anything wrong on my optical output, I have the 42PFL6907T. Then again, I don't use the TV's optical THAT often, as I primarily use the TV as a computer monitor, and the computer also has an optical link to the amplifier, so I usually simply use that.

How to receive 5.1 from mini-jack? Ye, it's not possible. My amplituner hasn't hdmi (arc) just out.
Indeed, the 3.5mm analog won't be able to output 5.1 signal. Check the Experience thread for more info/questions, I'll be posting there in a short while.
