    Did you install the Electronic Program Guide (EPG)?

    On my remote control is a guide button. With this you should be able to see the program-guide. When I press it there was no information. I watch TV via a satellite decoder, I did not install channels on my TV.
    I found in the user manual that my TV has a DVB-T tuner. I put a piece of wire to my antenna cable and performed a channel installation. The TV found lots of channels, these are the digitenne channels (I am in the Netherlands). I can even watch several channels because these are “free to air”, but I do not use these because I have these channels in HD via my satellite decoder.
    If I now press the Guide button, I get a very nice program overview. It looks much better than the guide from my satellite decoder. I now frequently use this when I want to have a quick view on what is on TV.

    Build your own DVB-T antenna!

    You might be lucky that you are close to a DVB-T broadcast antenna. I could not receive all those DVB-T stations, just on a piece of wire, I needed a proper antenna. When I was looking for an antenna on the internet, I found an article how to build one your selves. Just with a few empty beer-cans! I did it, and it is working! Click here for the website

    Availability IP-EPG.

    Some clarification on the use of the Electronic Program Guide (EPG).

    The program guide provided by Philips is available via the internet connection (IP-EPG). It uses the same connection as Net TV.
    The program index in this guide is created at channel installation.
    On the new 2010 TV generation, the TV broadcast remains visual via “picture in picture”.
    The program guide information pages are linked to Wikipedia. This provides all kind of background information on movies and movie stars.

    The availability of program guides depends on various things:
    • When you use digital cable (DVB-C). It might be that the digital cable provider offers a program guide. When you use the digital decoder in the TV, the TV automatically provides de program guide from the cable provider. In this way you have NO choice in the program guide.
    • Country settings. The program guide provided by Philips (IP-EPG) is not yet available in all countries (status: March-2011).

      The active countries are:
      - Austria,
      - Belgium,
      - Czech Republic,
      - Denmark,
      - France,
      - Germany,
      - Ireland,
      - Italy,
      - Luxemburg,
      - Netherlands,
      - Poland,
      - Slovakia,
      - Spain,
      - Switzerland.

      Note: Netherlands DVB-C (when selected DVB-C you cannot select IP-EPG).

    NETTV EPG not working on HDMI inputs

    I also have connected a STB to HDMI input for receiving HD digital TV content.

    When watching TV using a STB the EPG can not be activated!

    As most people in The Netherlands have to watch digital TV in this way (Only Ziggo customers can use CI+), this nice NETTV EPG with Wiki links is a completely useless feature!

    I would suggest to raise a change request to enable EPG also when the HDMI input is selected. In this way also the majority of the customers can use this EPG. Of course selecting a channel using the EPG would perhaps not be possible as the change channel command has to be sent using HDMI to the STB and maybe this is not supported

    Here in Germany on my 32PFL9705K/02 the IP-EPG works just fine.

    The EPG is in German, but the Informationpage (Wikipedia) i.e. for the actors is in English.

    @Philips-Mod
    The URL for the Wikipedialinks only has to be changed from:
    wiki.nettvservices.com/wiki.php?lang=en&page=Ethan%20Hawke
    wiki.nettvservices.com/wiki.php?lang=de&page=Ethan%20Hawke

    This works on my browser, the returning xml file then is in German


    Thank you in advance
    Uwe

    Any change that for 9705 models the EPG user interface for DVB-C in The Netherlands is going to be improved soon? Or ever?

    THE current EPG user interface sucks.

    Clearly stated by from the Philips moderator that IP-EPG is not available in Sweden, then I find it strange that there is a picture of IP-EPG clearly stating that the program guide can be browsed while watching TV with picture-in-picture, on the philips.se web-pages.

    Hi Toengel,

    Interesting suggestion will try it. Just hope it does not affect the DVB-C.

    Thanks

    It's just flabbergasting that manufactering expensive materials, high-end tech peripherals and connectivity, and simply say that you are a precursor using this kind of TV isn't enough to me
    Is there so much interest in the sector that now high-end user can't use this high-end TV or only when cable operators would decide to let it ?

    My Philips is 55PFL8007K/12; I thought using an application connecting to STB. peripherals like a hdd for comfort playing (pause, reward, forward) and perhaps maybe multiple tuner capability is possible with this TV.

    Why building a TV like this if you cannot use the options.

    I would suggest to philips to adapt it's statement more agressively then or simply stop building Nettv.. also a privacy menu in network options would be great with options like firewall, proxy, etc..
