    46PFL8008/12 irritating problems

    I just three weeks ago got a new 46PFL8008S/12 TV and are having some irritating problems. I donít know if itís a construction error or software/hardware errors.

    I have a Samsung Digital HD TV box (SMT-H3126) connected to my TV via HDMI and when I use the box the audio is out of sync. Iíve tried to use the delay settings but it doesnít seem to work.

    Iím also expiring a something looking like white clouds in every corner on the TV and also sometimes in the middle of the screen as well. I only see these clouds when there are a black screen, letterbox or when Iím using tele text.

    SW version is: 173.050

    Any suggestions?

    Audio sync issue is a known problem. Try to see if your Samsung box can output PCM stereo instead of Dolby Digital, at least as a workaround until Philips fixes this.

    Cool thanks I will try that. I hope Philips will have SW update that fixes this problem.

    Still worried about the image problems, but hope there also will be a fix for this.

    we all do, the HDMI delay and PNM are the main issue's everyone is experiencing, it took me too long to localise the problems on my 55pfl8008k otherwise i would have returned it to the store.

    I’ve found a solution to get rid off the white clouds in corners. Setting the Dynamic Backlight to Best Picture and Perfect Contrast to Max made it disappear.

    The TV is still new and I just found another bug which is so irritating.

    The Autofill is not working on the TV channels. I still get black bars in side of the TV and have set it to autofill and nothing happens. It doesn’t stretch the screen edges.

    That's just hiding the mura/clouds, not really getting rid of it. Mine has no clouds when I first switch it on....but after being on for about an hour clouds appear over several parts of the screen. This is due to the heat of the mainboard and power supply affecting it.....normal for these type of TVs though.
