just download the firmware - the ZIP should contain the latest version (there is a TXT file inside the ZIP where you can see that this is version 140.39) - 8000/9000 series only at the moment.

... just because I want the official position of Philips, if we wait for the firmware, or have to replace motherboard. Let finally someone from Philips express!

Installed the new version 2 days ago.
Don't noticed the start-up difference (came from version 34), but at least it does startup
No sounddrops (yet), so fingers crossed.
NetTV still a drag to sign in. Had multiple tries, two of those were the 'You need to switch the TV off and on again to complete sign-in'-like message. Done that both times, but no luck.
Do get in NetTV eventually when I keep on trying, but is really anoying....
It could be a great feature if you could just turn on the TV, and check the weather in a sec to see if you could take the bike to the city or had to go by car, but I could just as well startup the laptop and look at it. I'd be quicker. Come to think of it: I'll probaby could reinstall Windows and still be quicker then NetTV.
I will keep on trying this weekend, but if I do not see any improvements during those days, I'll going to try to make a call to the service desk...
Since firmware version 032 or 034 I don't have any sounddrops anymore. There is no hardware replaced in my TV. So I think it is (was) realy a software problem in my case. I know that some people still have sounddrops. It had something to do with the HDMI-handshake protocol. That's what the mechanic told me. In my case, I'm lucky and the problem is solved.

After a reboot it was fine, I will try to reproduce this!
Furthermore the colors look less warm (they look samsung-like).

Yes, indeed. Only I think I had this with Telext/teletekst, but could be I first opened the EPG-guide. Same buttons used!
I donot have IP-EPG as it doesnot work YET with CI+ an Ziggo in the Netherlands.
Philips what is this, please repair!
