    - SPDIF micro cuts issue still in when configured multi channel output (in stereo mode it works fine).
    - The clicking sound in Skype is still present.

    Hi,

    please post more details regarding your problems with IP-EPG. "Doesn't work" is not an error description.

    Hi,

    are you using the internal TV tuner? If yes, are you using the favorite channel list?

    Hi,

    you should consider to load factory default and set up your TV from the scratch again.

    Hi,

    I've tried to update my software today with wifi connection and there are two problems:

    1. Loading is stuck on 30% (first bar) it diddn't checked integrity or started programming the tv, should i restart tv?

    2. It claims the update num is "qf2eu-0.173.44.0" which is from december last year, I did few updates in the past but can't remember ids. Should the tv try t update to the newest version or am I wrong?

    Thanks

    Sure i saw that AFTER updating the TV. On the other hand TV tries to update to the "qf2eu-0.173.44.0" not the newest version. Besides if there are such restrictions, this update shouldn't be accessible with wifi, if it is.. that's just ridiculous.

    Hi,

    - pull power cord for 2-3 minutes
    - make sure only the "autorun.upg" is on the USB stick - no subfolder or any other data
