    TV Model Number: 55PUS7181/12
    Firmware: QM163E_000.010.077.002
    Previous Firmware: QM163E_000.010.015.001

    Don’t know why we had to wait so long for this update. Not much has changed for me and there are even some more problems.

    (Did a full reinstall of the tv)

    Positive:
    + There seems to be less stuttering when watching digital tv (DVB-C) and the option Clear LCD is on but it is still there especially when there are scene changes or when there is a moving banner on screen (example: news programs or end credits when a show is ending.)

    +The audio sync problems are gone at the moment.

    Negative:
    - Still no smooth playback when casting to tv from apps other than Youtube. Come on guys this is a key feature for smart tv’s. Why isn’t this working as it should be? Fix it!!!!

    - I’m uninstalling useless standard apps like France24 and Tv5monde but the next day they are magically reinstalled on the tv. (Uninstalling standard apps worked fine on the previous firmware.)

    - Still no smooth 4K playback on apps like kodi and spmc.

    -The internal player can’t play all audio streams. For example this one:
    Audio #1
    ID: 2
    Format: TrueHD
    Codec ID: A_TRUEHD
    Duration: 1h 35mn
    Bit rate mode: Variable
    Maximum bit rate: 12.0 Mbps
    Channel(s): 8 channels
    Channel positions: Front: L C R, Side: L R, Back: L R, LFE
    Sampling rate: 48.0 KHz
    Compression mode: Lossless
    Title: Dolby Atmos TrueHD 7.1 @ 6798 kbps - Blu-ray CEE
    Language: English
    Default: No
    Forced: No

    -When playing a video file on the internal player with multiple audio streams there is to less information on the audio streams. Example: When there are 2 audio streams in a video file, 1 with 5.1 audio and 1 with 7.1 audio and both in English you only can chose between English and English. So please show the full title of the audio stream.

    -Some .srt subtitles are not show in the internal player. I can select the subtitle in the internal player but it is never shown on screen. (they have the same name as the video file and are in the same map on the external hdd.)

    - Please please please add subtitle options to the internal player! Especially sync options, font size and position.

    -Please add a option to turn off the tv screen with the ambilight staying on. (example when listening to a radio channel.)

    - Channel logo missing for the channels: DisneyXD/Veronica, VRT Een HD, VRT Canvas HD, VRT Ketnet/OP12, CTV Zeeland and Omroep Tholen. (Cable tv provider: Delta) (Netherlands.)

    -The tv gide information for channel History HD is in German instead of Dutch.

    - When casting to tv it is impossible to enter the settings menu. Screen becomes black and casting stops.

    -No 60fps and HDR support on Youtube.

    Dear Philips, Please comment on every negative point I have written. When can we expect these problems to be solved? We have been waiting long enough now! Get to work or even hire some extra people to get this fixed! Make your customers happy again! We all payed big money for these products and it is not even working as it should be. It is also very bad for your own company. (sales men at stores even advising not to buy a Philips tv because of the buggy software and bad customer support.) Shame I didn’t listen!

    (sorry for so many posts but philips wont let me post it in one post)

    firstly , please use a understandable pattern in title to make people able to understand for what tv is intended this thread, or at least use always the same pattern.....

    I'm confused is this for QM163E_U_0.10.77.2 tv model 65x1 ?

    In case it is, here my findings.

    model : 55pus6501_12

    previous firm : QM163E_U_0.10.15.1

    All works as aspected i didn't noticed any improvement, but i was already satisfied with the previuos one.

    with the new android tv YOUTUBE application (rolling out in these days) finally i got 4k @ 60 FPS videos, Yippee-ki-yay!!!!!!

    cons:

    still problems with audio standard Android API and refresh change API.

    Sometimes i get audio stuttering via ARC when i use external hdmi source

    NO HDR in Youtube

    No availability of Amazon app in philips store neither in playstore for italian users. (just saying......sideloading of sony android
    tv app is working very good HDR 4k a 5.1 italian audio)


    for who experience problem with casting, have you tried with a lan cable , instead of wifi ? Historically I always have problem with these chinese andoid hw using WIFI (and that is happening also in PHILIPS tv no matters if router is a meter from the tv).

    i think this post should be stickied to improve visibility.

    i think the audio passthrough in kodi is working. can anyone confirm that? last time i've checked when i turned passthrough on the only thing i got was silence. right now it's working.

    I'm going to double check again, but also in the past it was working but only for ac3 and only for bitrates less than 384 kbs. If you want to passthrought everithing as aspected using standard android api it doesn't work.

    Hi,

    that should be an issue with the YT app... not the TV update...

    55PUS6401

    My list of requested features/fixes remains as follows, within the TV guide function:

    (1) Don't dim out-of-focus TV guide items so much - the grey is difficult to see from 20 feet away

    (2) Consider giving the CH+ and CH- new functionality within the TV guide; allow them to page up/page down. Maybe this could be a user selectable option in the TV preferences

    (3) If the above is not achievable, change the habit of the up/down arrows to remove the ridiculously fast accelerated scroll when viewing the TV guide

    (4) Consider offering the ability to remove unwanted channels from appearing in the TV guide

    (5) During TV guide navigation, keep the current channel's sound on in the background; there's no need to mute it after 3 seconds

    Thanks.
