    Firmware update for 8404?

    The last update is Version: 000.026.078.000 Date published: 2010-08-25

    Is it likely to get any more updates or is it obsolete now?

    as you can see also for other TVs, Philips does not spend money on Updates for TVs which are not sold anymore...
    however, do you have any "special" problems ?

    Well, I think there tv's have a NETTV-problem too (tv doesnot connect to NETTV) ! I heard some users of this tv mentioning this! All other tv's got new firmware for this... So, this tv should be updated to with NEW firmware to get NETTV up and running again!

    Hi,

    but the Net TV problem was a special constellation between 2010 hardware and the integrated opera version...

    This is your Opinion but how is this related to the Thread?
    Does the Threadstarter mentioning something about NetTV?
    What about let him state why he is asking?

    I can not access anyway to NET TV since a few days with my 42PFL8404H/12 Q5481-0.26.78.0

    I bought it 02-2010 with 2 years warranty....

    I have exactly the same problem with my BDP5100/12 SW : 1.57 bought in 01/2011

    No answer from NET TV support.....

    I was promised earlier that there will be a software update for this model to resolve some issues:
    - no aspect ratio setting if you watch movie from USB/network
    - 4:3 missing from settings
    - general slowness of the software

    What I see now is Philips abandons old products, which is very sad. In the mobile phone industry - where software is changing much faster - a 2 year old model usually gets its update, or support for the hacking community to create there own update.
