    Positive:
    + Uh it did not get worse I guess

    Negative:
    - There are massive problems with audio sync when the TV gets something other than 2 channel audio. For example if I set the TV to gaming mode, a console (PS3, PS4, Xbox or a PC) to output 5.1 audio the sound is delayed by nearly half a second. It really is unbearable. Note that gaming mode with PC and stereo audio is also a problem. The issue isn't there if I don't set the TV to PC mode though. It's silly that this is a problem, this is basic TV functionality, get it sorted.

    - still problem with PNM. Perfect Natural Motion stutters/artifacts. How is this possible Philips?!? Perfect Natural Motion should be your unique selling point. Starting to get really 'angry'. Every fw update I hope pnm is fixed, but every time you disappoint me and fix/focus only on minor problems. Start fixing the screen quality! This is a 2000,- euro tv and I have to turn pnm off to get an acceptable 'smooth' playback.

    - Every couple of days, Picture style gets set to standard and all custom settings are lost. There's little point in calibrating the tv anymore, since the settings only last for a day to two. The standard setting looks horrible, because...
    - Dynamic backlight is too aggressive
    - Perfect natural motion produces haloing and jerky motion on quickly moving objects
    - Light sensor causes random flickering

    - Now/Next view keeps telling me that CBeebies (kid TV) program contains "adult content" and is rated 18+. It also drops 1st character of sentence, so it says "ontains adult content" instead of "Contains". Other times it reports "trong language", "dult humour", or even worse just garbage text. I have factory reset TV, problem comes back within a couple of hours. Only happens on Childrens TV channels, ie: CITV and CBBC but not BBC 1. Happens on both DVB-T and DVB-S.
    - Help menu - go to A-Z list. Find "CI+" entry - it is empty. EXIT button does nothing.
    - Slow to switch from DVB-T to DVB-S - not slow the other way around.
    - Now/Next view does not like clock changing. When clock goes forward all channels report program time as "00:00-00:00". Fixed by reboot.
    - No UK or Ireland channel lists when setting up ASTRA2 satellite (compare with ASTRA1 experience)
    - Missing lots of TV logos for UK channels, including BBC channels
    - Slow to startup. I see Philips logo for 9 seconds. TV channel logo does not appear until +25 seconds. TV often ignores remote control, yet it has received command because red LED light flashes.
    - Regular crashing. Very annoying.

    Negative:
    - If TV only has ASTRA2 satellite available the TV Guide does not populate correctly after initial setup. Problem also happens if other satellites are connected but ASTRA2 is on LNB #1.
    Reset TV. Go through satellite setup. Allow TV to find all channels on ASTRA2. Finish initial setup. TV will default to "Channel 4" station. Only 9 channels appear in TV Guide. Clock will also appear as "00:00". Clock will sort itself out after couple of minutes, but EPG always stuck with 9 channels. Why does initial scan for channels (where there are 1000+) not populate EPG? If same test is repeated with ASTRA1 or HOTBIRD there are no problems and EPG contains many more channels.
    - TV displays wrong "itv" logo for ASTRA2 UK channels. It is using POLSAT itv logo (purple) instead of UK ITV logo (yellow)
    - Set TV location to Ireland. Search for DVB-T channels. All UK channels appear with no logo. Many people in Ireland can receive UK broadcasts. Is this behavior intended?
    - EXIT button does not work when watching TV and selecting Options -> Channel Info
    - Algorithm used to calculate satellite BER seems suspect. Error rate can increase yet quality level also increase?

    Suggestions:
    + Add Page Up / Page Down feature to TV Guide. CH+/- skips +/- 1 day, it would be more useful to skip a page of channels. Using with large satellite channel list is very painful....

    Negative:
    - Reboots, that were absolutly missing with 173.46. Sometimes the TV starts to obbey to other devices remote controllers (Air Conditioning, Home Cinema ...), turning itself off of changing the TV channel, until you plug the cord off. This didn't happen with 173.46
    - Random image settings reset, that didn't happen with 173.46
    - Seems to have poor Natural Motion Quality, but perhaps it is because I read this forum and it is in my imagination ...

    Model 42PFL6008S/12
    New Firmware: 173.52
    Old Firmware 173.51
    Location UK

    Negatives:

    IPTV stations (delivered by Freeview) such as Motors TV display message 'Your device does support this service but needs to be connected to the internet' when TV is connected by Wi-Fi. The TV can access the internet over Wi-Fi as smart apps such as YouTube work IPTV stations work when connected by LAN cable. This hasn't worked on any of the firmwares my TV has had installed since buying it

    When TV list is set to 'Favourites' when displaying EPG it sometimes displays all channels and not just thouse selected as 'Favourites' . I'm unable to reproduce on demand but usually occurs on accessing the EPG for the first time after TV has been turned on.
    Alternativly when the guide is displaying Favourites it does not show some of the channels. I have this right now and Favourite Channel 3, 24 and 36 through to 44 are not displayed. The only way to get them to show in the Favourite TV Guide is to first view that actual channel before bringing the guide back up. This never happened on firmwares before 173.50

    TV repeatedly finds and install 'new' channels - only these are not new channels but ones currently installed. This process also changes the regional variation of channels installed. I had BBC1 Yorkshire set as my BBC1 variant (as channel 1) now this has been replaced by BBC1 Yorks+Links with BBC1 Yorkshire moved to channel 800. This is only reversable by reinstalling all channels on the TV. This never happened on firmwares before 173.50


    When in the TV Guide sometimes when pressing TV button on the remote to go watch previously viewed programme it leaves the guide but only to get a blank screen and no sound. Trying to change channel from this point only results in the channel number of the button pressed appearing on the screen, but channel doesn't change - or appears not to change. Hard to tell with no picture or sound.

    TV turns it self off after 2 hours.
    I have "Automatic turn off" (Avstšngnings timer) set to OFF (0 minutes).
