Maybe you spent so much money, because Philips has to do Research & Development to try to improve Watching pleasure.
Maybe you pay so much money, because of high-tech algorithms to improve the quality and to try to overcome the downside of the LCD technology.
Maybe you pay so much money because of the quality of the LCD panels,
Maybe you pay so much money, because the (in my case) no-questions-asked support.
Maybe HID doesn't work on the 2010 models, because we're dealing with DEDICATED hardware with 'limited' processing power, which needs to be spent on picture/sound quality and the TV is no generic Intel Atom processor.
Have you guys ever thought about this? And that this forum is only here for little more than one year and that Philips didn't have to do this?
It could also just say: hey, you've got problems? Call our tech support! Bye, bye...
Maybe even the moderators do this as an extra next to their normal working assignments..
Have you seen the amount of postings in this forum? Do you read them all?!
Maybe you should have done more research yourself on you TV before you spent so much money...
Or sell your Philips and then buy a Samsung and stop whining. Don't take the easy way out and bash everything here, act!
That's al lot of questions, eh?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I would expect a QuadCore CPU on a 4200€ TV.

Strange, isn't it?
The Ferrari has the same engine as the 2CV.
I expected that the processing power on a top of the range TV would be more than enough to decode all the (free) audio codecs, to handle a simple keyboard and mouse (heck, even an old IBM PC XT did that, with an 8088 CPU at 4.77Mhz) and play 3D HD movies, all at once.
Oh, and an internet browser with Flash or HTML5/WebM.
Stop complaining about the processing power!
This is not a chinese calculator!
But hey, who buys these TVs knew in advance what they do.
Or probably not, but then you must look and think very carefully before spending a LOT of money.
For me, the virtue is in the middle, that's why I went to the 7000 series.
I don't like 3D, and I didn't want to spend any more money in something I don't like and a technology that is very in the begining, doesn't convince me at all.

In my opinion there should be purchasable "upgrade kits" which expands features which are not available for "older" devices at the moment. For example: When you buy a car and there´s a feature not included you can implement it easily (speed control; bluetooth handsfree... etc. ) You don´t buy a new car just to get these feature and that´s the way how it should work with Television too especially regarding the "premium" 9000 TV´s sets.
as you have noticed by now, i had to clean up a bit.
This Thread is about the Philips Smart TV feature. Not a general Discussion.
The User xMen has got a temporarily Ban as we can and will not accept this kind of violations against the Forum Rules and this kind off offensive acting.
It is up to Mark if this Thread will remain open or not.
This is for all Users, lets get the Focus back to the Topics.
I found a video where on can see the new Smart TV Portal (Net TV Portal) in action:
I can see (at the end) the colour buttons can be used to remove, move, lock and do something else with the selected item.

Maybe re-use this in other parts where there is the need for moving items?

Reason: Removed video
Smart TV UK
Can someone from Philips confirm if and when we will receive the Smart TV updates for the UK. I have 21:9 cinema gold and the improvements to the service will be good including access to BBC iplayer etc.
When will the 2010-model get the Smart-TV-update???
Nice commercials, but als customers we donot het what Philips says in the commercials!
Philips says that all tvs with nettv will be upgraded in 2011, looooooool.

I'd like to know more about the new Philips SmartTV Portal.
For eg. I've found two different versions.
Here is a picture
Here is a video
Here is Philips press release
Here is a picture
In this picture [see yellow circles], there is also the ability to choose settings of the tv (like the option inside the home menu). And beetwen the apps, you can find also the external sources (setupbox, bluray player, etc.).
Here is a video (from IFA 2011)
The person that you see into this video is Robert Smiths (CEO Philips Television)
So, what is the real new Philips SmartTV?
I really hope that will be the most complete one.

I think, it will be the first version. SmartTV will replace the NetTV Screen, you can reach with selecting NetTV from the Home menu. I think, it was mentioned somewhere, but could not find the exact source.
Regarding the timeframe of the update, I think there was an update of NetTV on december 1st 2010. So it might come beginning of december or end of november. But this is just speculation...
