The clock in the german IP-EPG is still missing... Philips didn't fix it till now
On my 40PFL9705K Version 140.39 does break audio playback from my BDP9600.
I just tried to play several Blu-rays that worked before the update to 140.39.
The audio from the TV speakers makes a hissing and disturbed sound and nothing can be understood.
Downgrading to 140.37 resolved this problem. But 140.37 still encounters the 'no picture at startup'.
is this happening one a specific Disc only or? if yes, which one is it?
Which FW is installed on the Player?
Ik have a CI+-module and when the tv starts up I always get a box "Authenticatie proces wordt gestart" after the Philips logo. I get:
- Channel that's on
- And then the box of the CI+module "Authencicatie proces wordt gestart".
Why isnot this box hidden? And why does the tv do this first before I see the channel ?
I saw a Sony-tv with CI+ and you will never see such kind of messagebox from the CI+module when you start up. With Sony it is:
Beside the bad 3D pictures with the new firmware I find the dynamic backlight to be very irritating in best picture mode. It looks more aggressive, especially when scenes change and also it looks to function more in wide lines instead of just the part of the screen where there dynamic lightning should work. Are others having the same experience?
The BDP 9600 Firmware is V1.56.
It does happen on every disc I tried - only 2 - but they play again with 140.37.
They are Blu-rays with EAN 4011976313380 and EAN 5050582798364. Audio is disturbed with both.
Language selected on both 40PFL9705K and BDP9600 is German.
Connected via HDMI to HDMI 1 with ARC.
Audio is disturbed with the internal TV speakers only when using 140.39. Audio is playing fine when connecting a hifi amplifier to the chinch output of the BDP 9600.

I also have the CI+ messages when starting up. Sometimes they only disappear after changing channels.
It's a Ziggo CI+ module in combination with a Caiway smartcard.
"No channels available" is gone after the upgrade to 140.39
I have still some other issues (not mentioning Now / Next ...)
-some channels don't appear in the non-IP EPG: SBS6 HD and Veronica HD
These channels have been moved by hand to position 6 and 8 in the channel list and are nowhere to be found in EPG...
As I mentioned earlier (I think it was the 34 version):
When I do the following:
a. watch video via DLNA (maybe also via USB)
b. turn off the tv with remote without exiting the video
the last frame of the video still is on screen when turning on the TV the next day.
And sometimes I have to hard reset the TV to get back control over the TV.
I think the TV never goes into "real" standby.
3. DLNA issue:
I lose connection quite often when watching video from a lacie networkspace2.
When this happens the NAS isn't discovered anymore by the TV.
When I check on my BDP-5180 the NAS also is gone.
It seems to happen when my notebook is on. This is running WMP11. Could it be the TV (and the BR player) are "confused" by more DLNA sources on the network?
Software 140.39 now also available for 5000/6000/7000 models

I was quite happy with the 37 (moving from 34), but the NetTV is still horribly when trying to connect.
And after a couple of view without problems, this morning I had the first sound/picture drop via HDMI, so time to call this afternoon...
And indeed: yesterday I noticed some more flickering with the backlights during moving objects in dark scenes... Not too anoying, but still just that visible enough...
And you mentioned this to your dealer ??? or to Phlips service ??
