    40PFL8605H/12 Supported formats and codecs in detail please

    I am a new philips user. Got a 8605 last week and tried it with my wd external hdd and flash disk. Played 4 avi files and a mkv. In all 5 of them, I had a sound delay issue which can be temporarily solved by pausing/playing the movie.

    Support says I should check if the files are supported by my TV, but in TV Manual I could not find detailed explanation. I know that it supports AVI, MKV MPEG1 2 4, but I have no idea which Codecs does it support.

    So I will check my files for codecs with MediaInfo program but first I have to know which codecs my TV support in detail.

    Or if I paste mediainfo log here can you tell me if it is supported by my TV or not?

    TY for fastest reply =)

    So if I can find codecs in list, should I contact my philips support?

    Or there can be other issues which may effect viewing experience?

    (I have not upgraded the firmware yet for example)

    I checked but could not "avi" codecs in "2010tv models xxpflxxx5" part

    Indeed, Philips must have forgotten it. (I have the same TV as you)

    BTW : yesterday I came across the very first avi that the TV wouldn't play: Elephants Dream

    Code:
    Format                           : AVI
    Format/Info                      : Audio Video Interleave

    I think it's caused by the OpenDML profile. Maybe someone with more knowledge can confirm ?

    But in my case the file is played. only with a disturbing sound issue. I see people talking then hear what they say after 1 second or 2.

    Someone from support team now told me that it could be fixed by setting "audio delay" option.

    Will try that in a cpl days when I get back to my tv and update this topic :P

    meanwhile I am ready to accept any other solution options

    Philips TV and Twonky media server issue

    If you are using a mediserver on your network disk (NAS) for example Twonky, the problem lies with that server configuration.


    Everything worked fine after buying the TV in november 2010. I could play all formats, but could not RW or FF except for MP3.

    I have an IOMEGA NAS 4TB network storage with Twonky on it 6.0.32. and a 32PFL8605H/12. The profile for Philips is not up to date on the Twonky Server. So, what need sto be done is that the Philips engineers contactTwonky to resolve this in the software.

    After extensive talks with the supportdesk of Philips, they came up with the remark that I should look at specific .avi, .mkv. .mov formats and post them. The simple fact is that none of these are playable now through the mediabrowser of the TV. The issue lies with the profiles that Philips creates for their TV services in agreement with the software developers of media servers. Twonky is one of the most common media servers.....

    I als requested Twonky to upgrade their Philips profile, which they have been promising for more than 6 month's now.

    My guess is that Twonky and Philips are in negotiations about the price that Philips has to pay for such a software upgrade.

    So, as long as Philips does not take into account the costs needed for software development for these kind of partners, their offer that the media browser works well with DLNA, is very limited.
