    Unhappy Philips exits consumer electronics business...

    Will we see new models of Philips blu ray players in 2014? And what about the firmware support for current models in the near future?

    Dear smp,

    Philips are constantly working on new products and will continue to support its old products long after they have been phased out.

    Kind regards,

    This is a nice statement, but in fact wrong. From my experience the firmware support even for a high price model like the 40PFL9705 was stopped after one and a half year and it looks like the same happens for the BDP9700. During that short life time support you might have the chance that the major bugs gets fixed - please note that I said "might". Btw. currently it seems that even the forum is out of Philips interests. The one and only who tries to take care and posts answers is Toengel.
    Honestly I'm upset. Major bugs, got not fixed, suggested useful improvements got refused, Smart-TV platform is not working due to various server issues - it's a mess. Maybe it would be a good idea to disclose the whole software, so that the mostly great hardware gets a useful and bug-free firmware.

    I agree. After the long downtime at the end of last year this forum has become useless.
