    Arrow Technical feedback - FW v3.10.0.1 - 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/UTOOXG
    42x8/44x8/45x8/49x8: http://philips.to/1yrMDtG
    50x8: http://philips.to/1pPwagt

    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.


    Please use the following template in this thread:

    TV Model: 42PFL5038
    Previous Firmware: 3.09

    Positive:

    + RC commands should be faster. I don't see a big change for channel changes. It looks like double digit channels are easier to change to. I used to have quite some hits and misses (so e.g. when you change to 74, you end up at 4). Probably could have fixed this by tweaking the delay settings of my Logitech Harmony as well. Still, looks like Philips fixed (????) something.

    Negative:

    - Start up is still slow. After power-up, the TV still is not responsive for at least 20 seconds before it responds to any remote command.

    - I checked, but Smart TV takes 30 secs to start up. For me, no change. The biggest delay seems to come from loading the advertisement for the smartphone app and the picture in picture display. If only they could remove this crap. I just want to start Netflix, that's all there is. It's also still weird/strange that after you hit Smart TV, the TV doesn't give any indication that you pressed that button until after approx. 10 secs you see the login stuff and the annoying message about the keyboard (can we drop this one as well ?).

    - Still have to check this: but so far with previous release, the TV got slow with a USB harddrive attached for recording. Slow incl. not responding to the remote immediately (sometimes up to 10 secs), when you change input source using an Harmony remote you end up at the wrong input. It also includes situations where the TV by itself starts up in USB input mode. Very annoying.

    Positive:
    + Much faster EPG! Thank you Philips for finally making it usable!
    + I hardly tested anything else, but playback from mediaserver seems to be fine and navigation a little quicker also.

    Negative:
    - Occasionally unable to move through the EPG for a few seconds. I have not narrowed this down to a particular cause/situation yet.
    - booting still takes a long time (until tv becomes responsive to ir input)

    TV Model: 46PFL4208T/12
    Previous Firmware: 3.7.0.1 and 3.9.0.1


    Positive:
    + nothing


    Negative:
    - not fixed: After daylight saving time began, hbbtv clock has gone wrong. It shows 2 hours ahead of current time.
    Internal guide has correct time. Hbbtv clock cannot be fixed with manual or automatic clock setting, nor setting daylight saving or standard time setting. With daylight saving setting, hbbtv clock is 2 hours ahead, and with standard time setting it is one hour behind.
    Clock was correct when standard time was in use. (DVB-C)

    - not fixed: DVB subtitles broken on DVB-C Finnish YLE HD channels YLE teema and YLE fem (previous subtitles are not cleared)

    - not fixed: TV does not find DLNA shares immediately if wifi is used, have to wait 3-4 minutes! before DLNA share is found. It finds shares immediately if wired connnection is used. There are no problems playing media on wifi, but if you use any other source, and go back to network source, it says it cannot connect to DLNA source(s) and you have to wait 3-4 minutes again!
    Speed is shown as 130Mbps, full quality, WPA2+PSK

    - not fixed: Finnish MTV3 HbbTV news video stops shortly after starting it (wireless + wired)

    - not fixed: contrast, brightness, color temperature settings are not respected when using teletext, hbbtv, or internet browser. This is annoying when using in dark ambience and screen goes very bright

    - not fixed: while playing video from usb or dlna source, pressing 'format' button stops the playback and goes to live tv and shows the format menu there

    - not fixed: HbbTV on YLE HD, the top-right miniview has scrambled picture, and if programme has subtitles, they are shown over the HbbTV

    - not fixed: HbbTV on YLE HD channels is now available at YLE1 and YLE2, but not on YLE teema or YLE fem

    Negative:
    - Leaving youtube by pressing TV on the remote leads to a black screen

    + overall tv seems to be responding faster

    Negative:
    - TV Guide (IP-EPG) shows "No program available", or "No information available" on a lot of channels. On the channels showing "No program available", the header information seems to be stuck at Today 06:00 - 06:00, with a half-way filled slider indicator.

    Positive:
    + The RC response seems a little bit faster.

    Negative:
    - The TV sometimes still freezes and does not respond anymore to any command from the RC or from the TV side buttons: when this happens, you have to unplug the power cord!
    This issue is not related to this FW in particular, also all previous FWs had it; for details see my thread: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...nd-to-commands

    Previous Firmware: TPM1013E_003.009.000.001
    Positive:
    + The RC response seems a little bit faster.

    - not fixed: during playback via USB the "FORMAT" button on the remote control is useless. When pressed the TV switch to the DVB source (interrupting the playback) and then appears the "FORMAT" window.
    To change FORMAT in playback mode is necessary bass by "OPTIONS" menu, after select "IMAGE & SOUND" and finally is possible select "IMAGE FORMAT".

    - not fixed: mkv file with horizontal resolution less than 1920 and aspect ratio thinner than 16/9 continue to be displayed vertically stretched to fill the screen (with .mp4 and .avi file this problems does not happen).
