    Hi all.

    The new FW will be live soon. For details please see here:
    6xx8: http://philips.to/1fOGTOR
    7xx8: http://philips.to/1dQfVeH
    8xx8: http://philips.to/1hkm7pI
    9xx8: http://philips.to/Pn2442

    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 discussion thread.

    NOTE:
    Please be aware it is advised to only update to this version manually via USB.

    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:

    Previous Firmware: 173.046

    Positive:

    + Nothing. I don't see any improvement over older firmwares.

    Negative:

    - Dynamic backlight dims dark scenes far too aggressively in standard and best picture modes
    - Dynamic backlight pushes/stretches contrast too far in standard and best picture modes causing discolouration

    Hi gelo29,

    This thread is specifically for technical feedback. Please use the feedback template provided in the original post.

    For general discussions about the software, please use the Experience thread appropriate to your TV model.

    Giving feedback without listing your TV model also renders your feedback less useful.

    Thank you!

    TV Model: 55PFL8008S (please fill in)
    Previous Firmware: 173.046 (please fill in)

    Positive:
    + Nice to see a rapid update after the vulnerability was found.
    + Firmware in general seems pretty stable. (knocking on wood)

    Negative:
    - Dynamic backlight function must be fixed. Behavior on setting: standard is far too aggressive as described numerous time on these forums. It used to work better in previous firmwares.
    - Audio lag (apparently only) on multichannel sources is still present and must be fixed.

    Fix those things and don't break anything else while doing it and I'm a happy camper.

    TV Model: 42PFL6008 (please fill in)
    Previous Firmware: 173.48 (please fill in)

    Positive:
    + security


    Negative:
    - internet browser is awful like other apps
    - slow channel change,lag in channel change, lag in smart tv, lag in settings, lag everywhere
    - perfect natural motion awful and other image process settings

    A big improvement it would be to fix this lag problems, is a dual core tv , i think is possible to run ok without any lag.

    If you can't , tell us but i think is a software problem.

    [Update]


    Software version 173.50 will be added to this software thread.


    What does this SW do:
    Version 173.50 is essentially a scaled down version of the current software (173.49). The reduction in size was necessary as the file size rendered the TV unable to upgrade via IP (network).


    What is an IP upgrade?
    This allows us to send updates directly to TVs connected to the internet via our update servers. And also for users to retrieve the updates directly on the TV's Software menu without the need to update with a USB stick.


    Best regards,
    Ina

    ============================
    TV Model: 46PFL8008K/12 (please fill in)
    Previous Firmware: 173-46 (please fill in)

    Positive:
    + Remote control now switches TV on from Stand-by mode. this was an issue for me on 173-46
    + Apparent performance improvement when navigating TV menus & guide.
    +

    Negative:
    - Navigating through TV guide and change channel by pressing OK button on remote does not work anymore.
    - MKV reproduction from a NAS experienced 1 second pause every 3 seconds of movie when movie has been playing for 1 hour aprox. Pausing the movie for few minutes made it work fine again. Both TV & NAS are connected through ethernet. Movie MVK + DTS, file with bitrate of 10mbps.
    - perfect natural motion & dynamic backlight are still too agressive, even with Minimum. PNM can be switched off and no big issue, but dynamic backlight is a feature that I would like to have in use as a usable feature.
    (added)
    - channel RTL5 (netherlands) has a very low signal (30%) making it unwatchable. Using Ziggo CI+.

    ============================
    TV Model: 46PFL8008k
    Previous Firmware: 176.046

    Positive:
    + Quick fix for vulnerability

    Negative:
    - Still audio delay with PS3 --> HDMI inputs?
    - Still gaps in EPG ("channel doesn't provide information" in the beginning, now just blank gaps between programs) @ Ziggo
    - Dynamic backlight is indeed too aggressive now, it worked much better in previous firmwares.
    - Horrible artefacts due to stupid Perfect Natural Motion (Why is this changed? See below)
    - Clear LCD only works in conjunction with Perfect Natural Motion, please let us only enable Clear LCD. Backlight scanning (=Clear LCD) works completely without artefacts. Option is there, but it does nothing.

    Previous Firmware: 173.45

    Positive:
    + PNM-Level causes different influences of the image-quality
    +
    +

    Negative:
    - In versions 173.46, 173.48, 173.49, 173.50 the Pefect Natural Motion is awful, ugly artefacts on fast scenes (action scenes) and smooth playback/streaming is not possible.
    -> Downgrading to version 173.45 (last firmware with perfect PNM and image quality) brings back the perfect TV-experience
