    Yes, man. Absolutely agree with that. It would be nice of Philips to upgrade player with subtitle font size and time search option.

    What I do not understand with this forum is that the default answer to all problems is to load the latest firmware.

    In the previous thread for 050 a user stated that this update resulted in constant 'hanging' or reboots with the answer being to upgrade to 051.

    .051 has no reference to improving reboots /hanging so how will this improve this situation.

    I have personally been instructed to downgrade to. 045 with this making no difference therefore am now waiting (a full MONTH from the faults being reported) for a warranty repair.

    I am seriously concerned with the Philips brand and It's ability to produce "leading quality" goods.

    Yesterday I updated my tv from .50 to .51. Although the changelog didn't mention stability improvements it really is a better release. The few hours I used my tv yesterday were stable and fine; which didn't happen at all with the .50 release.

    After installing via USB to my 55PFL6198 began spontaneously turn on and off, update repeated a total of 3 times with the same result. Returned to version 173.050.

    Can anyone responsible write here what was planned to improve in future updates???, Anywhere it does not continue, no improvement.

    And as far as me and still did not fix anything broken around the Auto Fill on HD channels, while older programs broadcast in 4:3 format. The HD channels not function to change the format (from 4:3) behave strangely at all DVB-C, DVB-T, DVB-S.
