Net TV very slow or not working
In the Netherlands I'm expierencing more and more problems with the connection towards Net TV.
Sometims the connection can't be found, ohter times the connection can take up to 300 seconds before the connection is established.
Most of the time I get a : "Philips server not found error " and after 3,4 or somtetimes even 5 times I get a connection.
Memory cache of Net TV has been emptied and the problem still remains.
Errors in firewalls, routers and cabling have been ruled out , ports 443 and 80 are open as required.
I design and maintain computer networks for a living so I know there's nothing wrong with the network.
The setup is completly wired, all CAT 5 cabling and routers and cables are fine.
TV is accessible through the internal IP network and responds well to commands form the my remote application on my mobile and responds to pings as required.
TV type is 37PFL7605H/12 and firmware version is 140.037.000.
Seems to me that this is a server or bandwidth issue on the Phillips side of the Net TV Portal.
Seeing the complaints on the forum regarding this issue it seems I'm not the only one expierencing this issue and it seems that this has been going on for almost 3 months now.
Could you please inform me what the issue is and what your estimate is on resolving this issue ?
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Same here,m also in the Netherlands.
Same issue in Italy since I have installed the 140.036 FW on my 40PFL7605H/12.
At the beginning Net TV was just slow, but now I'm rarely able to start Net TV, because a message tells me to try again later.
Same issue here, I'm also in Italy (140.037 FW on 37PFL7605H/12). The same slowness happens on IP EPG.
perhaps you will vote at this poll in order to summarize the experience due to the start up time of NetTV: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...ull=1#post9078
Same story here. Also in the Netherlands.

Unfortunately, nothing will happen if you only post messages on this forum.

Update: there was a Mailman but no the brief from Philips, maybe tomorrow better luck
Today a nice white usb stick with Philips on it came at home.
I put him in the TV and goes to to config menu software update.
I see that they send the new software version number 39. thats the same that i already downloaded and instald.
No difference on Net TV now.
Tomorrow the phone rings again by Philips service

Reason: spelling :)
I've exactly the same experiences as described by all orthers. When I bought my 42pfl7576 a few months ago the speed of NetTV was fine. Nowadays it's hopeless. Found a sub-solution to connect to NetTV via [Home] --> [Configuratio]n --> [Networkinstellingen] and re install the network connection.
Hypothesis: I use the USB port not only for my wireless NetTV dongle but also to connect to my photocamera. Is there a connection between the speed of NetTV and the multiple use of the USB port?
