IP-EPG When Available for Ziggo-users CI+
Now this forrum is finally official, I would like an answer when the IP-EPG is available for the 2010 models when having Ziggo and CI+. As the 2011 certified models support this feature its no certification-problem.
Please give us an update on this.
Joining you. + 1
And i want also the now/next feature. Ziggo send me an advertisement which says they have a now/next feature which is very handy!
Well?? Philips please react! Is this an official forum or not?
I'm the first to agree on this topic. You might consider a more respectful way of communicating though. I understand you are disappointed by some of the Philips TV features but the Philips people on this forum are only here to help you. A friendly way of communication might even help you getting answers faster

So the way I see it only the customers are communicating here... Is this what Philips want with this forum or is Philips willing to react and act on all the complaints (like the complaint above and the now/next-problem)??
I donot see big changes or reactions from Phiips they are willing to help and change things the way the customers like it. So why this forum?? Only to implement all solutions to the mentioned complaints in new tv's????
I am around here since august 2010.... So I think I am not wrong in what I am saying here....
I'm stinking of switching back to the cable supplied EPG. At least is shows within the second what program is now/next.
The slowness of the IP-EPG (using the work-aournd of the DVB-T channel installation described somewhere here on this forum) is 'tenenkrommend' anoying...
Same problem here.... +1
What's the use of this forum if Philips doesn't react!
sense en simplicity.... i liked this one more: “Let's make things better”

Here again we see the way the 'software patents' realy work oposite as they should be.
Coorporations just want to make money with patents they have harvested, or want to push competition by using absurt generic patents ('a piece of text a user can click on to move to another page').
But indeed: let's hope Philips can - at least in The Netherlands - use this ruling to enable the now/nect OSD when zapping...
