    Arrow Technical feedback - FW v3.9.0.1 - for 32x8, 42x8, 44x8, 45x8, 49x8 and 50x8 - 2013

    Hi all.

    The new FW is now live. For details please see here:
    32x8: http://philips.to/1nu8eMP
    42x8/44x8/45x8/49x8: http://philips.to/1op1dPn
    50x8: http://philips.to/1kjW88p

    This thread is for technical feedback only. For other discussions please post in the related discussion thread. "Off topic" posts regarding the firmware will be moved to the experience thread.

    Important:
    After upgrading your TV, it is necessary to perform a "cold start". This means that, after the TV is running again (after the update), shut down the TV, wait 1 minute (till all components are shut down), and unplug the TV from the mains (pull power cord) for 2 minutes before starting again.

    Prev. Firmware: TPM1013E_003.007.000.001

    + nothing

    - all known failures are the same as before (pause TV only works after special RC button sequence,; after USB recording, HbbTV works only after special RC button sequences))
    - same slow RC reaction speed than before
    - TV set remains pretty worthless using 3.9.0.1 Firmware

    Tv model 47PFL5008k/12
    + nothing
    - TV is not turning on - black screen. I must pull the plug in order to use the TV and every time I turn it on. When it turns on the channel switching is awfully long after I turn the TV on (for 30 seconds the TV does not react to the keypresses)

    The Issues were only resolved when I downgraded to an earlier version found on the German Philips Forum.

    Awful job Philips. I'm really disappointed - thinking of not buying anything from you anytime soon. Customer service is also very bad and the firmwares that actually should be better with each version are in fact worse.

    TV Model: 32PFL5008/12
    Previous Firmware: 3.07

    Positive:
    +TV seems to respond faster to the remote control after switching on. TV used to be non-responsive for at least 30 sec, now it seems to be available much faster.
    + Channel Navigation/Switching digital channels seems faster


    Negative:
    - Skype looses its password. Despite checking the automatic "logon when skype starts" need to type in the password regularly. TV losses the password at undifined moment. Sometimes it remembers, next time it's lost agian.

    TV Model:46PFL4418K (please fill in)
    Previous Firmware: 3.07 (not sure, did not check, the update was done automatically over net)

    Positive:
    + Nothing.
    +
    +

    Negative:
    - It takes too long to change a channel. I press ch+ on the remote and nothing happens for 5 seconds. Then it goes black and I have to wait for another 5 secs for the channel to come up.
    - When I try to reorder the channels the television occasionally resets or halts in which case I need to remove the power.
    - TV halts without any reason sometimes and I have to remove the power.
    - Not FW related but very poor support. I tried to contact the local support (Germany) selecting language English and requested to send me the previous FW. They refuse to help me because the email was not in German. I guess translate.google.com doesn't work for them.

    TV Model: 32PFL3258H/12
    Previous Firmware: 3.07

    Positive:
    +little faster response

    Negative:
    - I can`t waching HDMI and record DVB-T at same time
    - When I turn off TV when I waching on HDMI, recording doesn`t work, but when I turned off when I waching on DVB-T, everything is ok. Looks like TV can`t switch sources on stand-by
    - HDMI recording doesn`t work
    - TV is unresponsive after power-on (out of standby) for 20 sec.. (reading hdd?)

    Philips! I so disappointed.. half year and You don't solve problem.. I think it`s time to share previous software, because newer software is worse than the older..
