    Hi Guys,

    here are the Release notes of SW release .140.39.0:

    - Lost of presets after toggling between ASTRA and HOT Bird (between 2LNBs).

    - Picture disturbance on DVB-C channel 'Phoenix' (Germany region Zweibrucken).

    - Lipsync on EXT, 'audio uitvoer delay' not working.

    - When starting up, sometimes no picture.

    - Russian translation errors in UI and Net TV.

    - TV goes auto to standby after 2h startup in the morning (RiksTV Norwegian DVB-T network).

    - TV does not react anymore on any RC key when starting from semi-Standby.


    Websites will be updated soon.

    Regards
    Thomas

    Hi

    There is no difference, for 2k10 semi-Standby is what you would call "Standby"

    Since Friday I installed version .39 and for me it's the best firmware so far.
    The dynamic background lights works a lot better. In dark movies, the flickering spots in the opposite corner of the screen are almost not visible anymore.
    Net tv (I use often) is faster and I can use facebook now.

    Most of remaining bad things in this software is not a problem for me.
    Mediaplayer: I use a BDP7500MK2 blueray player, which is connected to a DNLA compatible server. Since his last update (yes even with Philips' bluerayplayers...) I'm able to watch subtitels in MKV files. (Just *.SRT files in combination with *.AVI through the network isn't possible, but through usb no prob)
    IP-EPG: Here in Belgium we HAVE to use the bloody settopbox of Telenet . They don't provide a CI card for digital tv. So because of that, mostly I use the EPG of my settopbox.

    Yesterday I tried 3D with the new software. I can confirm the experiences of cderidder. The effects are more impressive, but the crosstalk is ugly again . In previous firmware versions you have less effects, but also less crosstalk...

    Give a good fix in 3D and for my situation I'm satisfied.

    I don't understand people crying about the sounddrops. (It must be hardware) Since version .29 I haven't had any sounddrop.
    Before, I had frequently sounddrops with my Telenet settopbox and very often a "scrambled" sound with my Pioneer DVD recorder. Since the update to .29, or .31, I doubt, my soundproblems are over. Both on digital tv (yes we have +/- 10 free channels in Belgium),analogue, scart and the 4 HDMI connections I have no sound related problems anymore...

    Greetzzz,
    Gert

    Hi Gert,

    sadly some customers have still sound drops with the current firmware... But many problems are already solved regarding this issue.

    They forgot a single translation error fix for Greek. Two to go...

    And the fix for the "no channels found", unless "When starting up, sometimes no picture." means that...

    And for sure that startup procedure has been changed. User picture preset is applied from the very beginning, eliminating the effect the TV starting up with contrast at 80, starting showing picture, and then dropping back to the user's preset...

    And the TV now does not switch to TV automatically, if there is no image at the HDMI/other inputs.

    I would also to know that. Are SPDIF sound drops fixed only with a board replacement?
    Because if it does, its good to make the replacement withing the guarantee period. If it doesn't, don't bother letting a technician touching the TV...

    We cry for the sounddrops, because we don't have an alternative. If you don't own an amplifier that can do an 180ms sound delay, there is no other way to achieve this sound delay, unless you use the SPDIF/HDMI ARC of the TV. And if you do, you end up with sound drops.

    Regarding the scrambled sound in HDMI sound (or more frequent "clicks"), I also remember it, it lasted for a single firmware before it was fixed. I don't remember the exact firmware number.

    Also, in the last two firmwares (140.36, 140.37), there was also the problem of DVB-T channel sound getting out of sync. It has happened a few times for me, and I had to reboot the TV to get it fixed. I haven't observed this with 140.39, but time will tell.

    Why do the individual product pages still show the download for 140.37? Is there an alternate location to download the new software release from?

    Oh Philips; please fix Net-TV connectivity!
    "To complete NetTV sign-in, please switch your TV set off and on again"
    "Philips server not found"

    Well that's a positive move towards the right direction!
    Hopefully, the deal with China has brought in new programmers to improve the firmware problems.

    Here is a list of remaining issues / improvements:

    1. EPG support for all european countries
    2a. A simple now / next overlay, when arrows down/up are clicked on remote, TV should scroll through now/next of DVB channels (like on most DVB set-top boxes - sky digital for example, or like windows media centre), click ok and it should change channel to chosen channel
    or (if above is too difficult),
    2b. Now-next banner when changing DVB-T channels
    3. USB player should support resume from last stop or go-to
    4. 3d crosstalk improvement or 3D adjustment settings to minimize crosstalk
    5. DTS pass-through (all Blu-Ray disc I have contain DTS sound, not AC3, therefore it's impossible to passthrough DTS to av amplifier via TV spdif with corrected lip-sync. If sound is given direct from blu-ray player to av amp there is a lip sync delay. If though, I play a DVD with AC3, the TV passes AC3 via spdif to amplifier with correct delay and I have perfect lip sync)
    6. MKV subtitles from USB (not sure if this is fixed or not, according to above post #21)

    Wishfull additions:
    1. PVR support with external usb discs, if possible
    2. 2D to 3D conversion, if possible

    Hi Thomas,

    I actually checked two (my model and the 9000 series):
    http://www.philips.nl/c/televisie-80.../nl/?t=support
    http://www.philips.nl/c/televisie/90...drp3?t=support

    Both showing downloads for "Nieuwste versie: 000.140.037.000, 2011-06-09"

    Thanks
