    65PFL9708/s
    former 173.51

    the sound is disturbed on my 65pfl9708. aroun 6 till 8 times the sound is complete falling out.
    my AVR Surround reciever is showing that the sound is starting up after a couple of seconds.
    with the former update never a problem. its with the HDMI ARC and also with the digital out connection. of the tv.

    I can even see no bether picture qaulity as the wrote before. its still worse with moving and action pictures on the screen. Also the black coulor is pour and has a lot of fading in it.
    normali with still (not quick pictures) it goes. but when some action happens, it looks if i watch a bad qauliti sd channel, even its a real HD channel like for example Discovery HD,

    Even what about the promissed HVEC and HDMI 2.0 and HDCP hard ware update????
    this was even promissed us at the IFA Berlin show last september 2013 by more than one Philips representive that week.
