New Usermanual - BugReport
I've just right now updated the manual of my 40PFL7605H/12 running on 140.039 with the zip from PHILIPS Support. Language = german
Problem #1: While the update procedure I got a message that the SW (the zip downloaded from the support) is older than the current TV SW - but I want to update the manual and not the TV main SW, so I ignored the message.
The update procedure runs without further problems ans I checked the versions numbers: main SW: 140.039 and UMv 3139 137 03595 - due to the update manual the last digit "5" indicates that the online manual is the new one since the last digit was a "3" before the update.
There is one more hint that the update was successful: no more "Widgets" in the alphabetical list.
Problem #2: I've mentioned this already for the old manual version:
1.) "HOME" -> "HELP" -> "Search for" should result in
2.) Go to the 3rd page by pressing "RIGHT ARROW" and you see
Have a look on the "V" between the "S" entries. I've marked it red
3.) Go one more page to the right and you see
It starts again with "A". Until now I did not know that the an alphabetical list in the Netherlands is something different than in Germany - or have nobody proofed the manual update at philips??.
This is more a funny kind of bug.
1.) Again on the page with the "V" bug. But I have highlighted a very long entry "Stromspareinstellung" at the most right column . When this item is selected it runs so that the hole text can be read in the highlight box.
2.) Now hit once more the "RIGHT ARROW" and your on the last page agian. But there the former highlighted entry is still on the screen as a phantom. Again marked it with red:
This bug only takes place when the entry form step 1 is "larger" then the highligt box and you swap to the last page - because on the last page the area of the screen where the phantom can be seen is not updated.
I've need exact 10 minutes to find this bugs but philips publishes this manual, while there is a big NetTV issue as can be read in this forum. Please over think your priorities and test the software before it is published.
