    Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight, primarily for Linux and other Unix/X11 based operating systems.

    Lake292, it seems you know the real reason. May you explain, why it is not possible ? Firmware update would not help ?
    I would appreciate your explanation. Thanks

    Hi,

    Moonlight is not a full implementation of .NET. And some other questions arise. Who is responsible for security updates (Adobe Flash has/had a lot of them)? Also Flash is very power consuming (performance, energy)...

    The real answer is that the processor of the TV is too weak for all these. Its not a real pc...

    Dear Genu.

    Lake292 is right: you cannot install Flash or Silverlight, it is explained here.

    oh Petasis, do you have benchmarks of the processor ? do you have restricted informations about it ? Like 'is decoding hardwired or software' ?
    Do you have a running view of the linux kernel (free memory, number of process, cpu load) through a supervising mechanisism ?
    Nothing about the load of processor is available. Nothing about available ressources is available. We knows nothing about our engine apart the advertising datasheet of nxp.

    Philips will not say it is weak (a major design error/fail)
    Philips will no say it is underused (they choose what they want to add, not you, customer reclaiming flash)

    You don't need all these to know the processor is week. Its low frequency, and the slowness of the TV menus, along with the low frame rates & resolutions that can be achieved through JointSpace, are a clear indicator.

    Just see how much time is required for the TV to boot, the user settings to be applied, and the menus to start working. And we are talking about such a tiny linux distribution...

    Does your tv gives you the impression that its cpu is powerful?

    The more I read about the "features" of my overpriced TV, the more I become disappointed.
